It should come as no surprise that many tweens/teen around the world find One Direction to be fascinating. But now, the British-Irish boy band can actually put the term on its resume because, according to Barbara Walters, the five guys deserved a spot on her 10 Most Fascinating People of the Year 2012 special. And we totally agree! You don’t get your own fragrance and a 3D movie for being boring, ya know.
During the segment, you could see footage of the boys crying on The X Factor prior to being grouped into one entity (though, you can’t feel too bad for ‘em, considering the outcome), as well as their answers to whether or not they’d consider going solo and who’s single/dating. (FYI, this was filmed prior to Haylor’s kissing and before Payzer reunited.)
Our favorite quote from the special comes from Louis Tomlinson: “We are just having an absolutely amazing time, and I think it’d be wrong to look at it thinking ‘When is this going to end?’ You know, we’re just enjoying it for the moment. And at this moment, we’re having a great time.”
