Barbara Walters Breaks Rule by Picking Steve Jobs as 2011 Most Fascinating Person


The late co-founder of Apple is the first person who is posthumously included on the list as Walters argues, 'Rules were meant to be broken.'

Barbara Walters has unveiled who's topping her list of 2011 Most Fascinating People. In a surprising and unpredicted move, she landed her choice on late Steve Jobs while she has always been picking people who are still alive to be named on the list.

Walters indeed chose Jobs as the Most Fascinating Person before his death, after he announced his retirement as CEO on Apple which he co-founded. When he lost his battle with cancer last October, the co-host of "The View" decided to keep him on the list because she believes "rules were meant to be broken."

"Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011" has aired on Wednesday night, December 14 on ABC. Other names making onto the list are the Kardashians, Jesse Tyler Ferguson & Eric Stonestreet of "Modern Family", Katy Perry, Donald Trump, Derek Jeter, Pippa Middleton, Amanda Knox, Simon Cowell and Herman Cain.
