Tonight, Barbara Walters presents her 10 Most Fascinating People of 2008 (10 pm on ABC!), focusing on the most compelling people in the realm of news, politics, celebrity, and sport.

With only ten slots available, the competition was pretty fierce. Did your favorite characters make the cut? Click on our slideshow to find out!
