Walters’ announced her special in November, and received some push back from her “View” co-host Joy Behar when she unveiled that The Kardashians had made the list. As always, Walters’ kept her “most fascinating person” a secret until the special aired Wednesday night.
Walters said that she broke her own rules when she selected Jobs. Up until 2011, “every fascinating person must be living,” Walters said during her special. When Jobs announced his retirement from Apple in August, Walters said that he “immediately” became her “most fascinating person of the year.” However, she said that she “never got that interview” since he passed away in October.
“But we’re sticking with our choice. Rules were meant to be broken, and that’s certainly how Steve Jobs lived his life,” Walters said. Walters described Jobs as always “seeing something we couldn’t,” which “makes him the most fascinating person of 2011.”
