ABC is teasing a partial list of Barbara Walters’ “Most Fascinating People” picks — and its filled with some “blah” to “yea” selections.

Justin Bieber
Jennifer Lopez
Sarah Palin
LeBron James
Sandra Bullock
Kate Middleton
Betty White
The cast of Jersey Shore

So first, it’s great to see Betty White up there. No doubt, she’ll probably do some plugging of her animal advocacy work with the Morris Animal Foundation. Yea! But Sarah Palin — again?! This marks the third year in a row that she’s been featured on the program. She long ago crossed over from fascinating to mind-blowingly annoying.

Bieber was a given — but the real star of the group will certainly be Middleton; especially in the wake of her recently announced engagement to Prince William. And how about the cast of “Jersey Shore”? According to ABC, the reality stars give Walters a language lesson regarding GTL, grenades, and smooshing.

Yikes.

The ABC special airs Thursday, December 9 at 10PM; with two more picks yet to be revealed. I’m betting on Lady Gaga being one of them.
