Barbara Walters must be a Directioner!

The View host announced Monday that One Direction scored a spot on her "10 Most Fascinating People of 2012" list.

Ben Affleck also made the cut, along with Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James was one of Babs' picks, along with Seth MacFarlane and New Jersey governor Chris Christie.

Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2012 airs Dec. 12 on ABC. She'll announce then who her pick for the year's most fascinating person is.

Any guesses?
