Barbara Walters airs her special December 9th of the 10 Most Fascinating People of 2009, but the 10th person won't be revealed until the end of the special. Who do you think it will be?
Let's look at the other nine people:
Glenn Beck - host of The Glenn Beck Program and a cable-news show on Fox. Beck has known success as a radio and television host as well as an author.
Brett Favre - a successful American quarterback who has already retired once and came back to playing professional football, then retired again. He gained great success as a quarterback for the Green Bay Packers from 1992 to 2007.
Kate Gosselin - 2009 really has been the year of the Gosselins, when America watched one of the biggest American families fall apart on national television. She was also one of the most searched people on the internet in 2009.
Lady Gaga - a musician who was virtually unknown at the beginning of 2009, Lady Gaga has broken on to the scene this year and has continued to fascinate people with her outrageous outfits and her ground-breaking music.
Michael Jackson's kids - although not one person, Michael Jackson's children have been though a lot in 2009 when their father died suddenly in June. His children were thrust in to the spotlight at his memorial service and have been struggling to regain their lives ever since.
Adam Lambert - the second place finalist in American Idol, he has pushed the boundaries of what can be shown on television during muscial performances. His new album For Your Entertainment had a successful debut in November.
