Barbara Walters Chooses Steve Jobs as Her ‘Most Fascinating Person’ of 2011 [VIDEO]

ABC News

Barbara Walters has named her Most Fascinating Person of 2011: Steve Jobs.

While her policy has always been to choose only living people for the annual roundup, Walters said that when Jobs retired as CEO of Apple last summer, she knew he’d be her pick to top the list. And even after his death on October 5, Walters stuck to her choice because, much like Jobs believed, “rules were made to be broken.”

Other notables (or less than notables) on this year’s list include the Kardashians, ‘Modern Family’ stars Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Amanda Knox, Herman Cain, Donald Trump, Katy Perry, Simon Cowell, Derek Jeter and Pippa Middleton. Watch Walters discuss Jobs’ amazing life and career below.
