Who's on Barbara Walters' list of the year's 'Most Fascinating'?

After talking to the Kardashians last year and the cast of "Jersey Shore" the year before that, Barbara Walters' list of 2012's "Most Fascinating People" is notably reality show- free.

Instead, Walters' 90-minute special, which is now in its 20th season, will include:

"Fifty Shades of Grey" author E.L. James

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (who made quite the splash in his "Saturday Night Live" cameo this weekend)

Boy band One Direction

Gold-medal-winning Olympic gymnast/budding actress/author Gabby Douglas

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

Seth MacFarlane

And Ben Affleck, who just scored another acting/directing success with "Argo"

The No. 1 "Most Fascinating" person will be revealed on the special when it airs December 12 at 9:30 p.m. on ABC.
