Barbara Walters has released the almost-complete list of people that will be included in the 2011 edition of her annual special, ‘Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011.’

Warning to Daniel Craig: The Kardashians are on the list.

The most fascinating person of 2011 won’t be revealed until the special airs Dec. 14 on ABC, but the rest of the participants are an eclectic group: In addition to Kourtney, Khloe and Kim Kardashian -- and don’t forget mom, Kris Jenner -- there’s the ‘Modern Family’ duo of Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet, plus Simon Cowell, New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter, Donald Trump, pop star Katy Perry and Pippa Middleton.

Who’s missing from the list? And tell us in comments: Who do you think will be the crowned 2011’s most fascinating person?


[For the record, 2:41 p.m. Nov. 30: The headline on this post originally said ‘9 of 10 revealed.’ It has been changed.]
