Barbara Walters: Kardashians? No talent there!

A preview of Barbara Walters' picks for the most fascinating people of the year.

Lindsay Lohan is not fascinating.

But Kim Kardashian, Eric Stonestreet and Steve Jobs most certainly are. Fact, they're supertastically fascinating, decrees one of the business' most sought-after confessors, Barbara Walters.

Walters, who presented her findings Wednesday night on the ABC News special, Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011, is most impressed with Jobs, who tops her list.

The Apple founder, who died in October at 56, transformed the face of computing, friends and colleagues tell Walters.

"He wanted things insanely great and would take or accept nothing less than that," said Disney president and CEO Bob Iger.

"His enthusiasm was unbelievably evident, visceral."

Walters' show features chats with other fascinators, including Kris Jenner and her daughters Kourtney, Khloe and Kim Kardashian, hallowed stars of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Walters notes that they make millions, yet, as she puts it, "forgive me, but you don't have any talent." (One for Babs!)

Other notables include Herman Cain, Simon Cowell, Katy Perry, Derek Jeter and Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet.
