Time Magazine Wednesday announced their person of the year, and you might be surprised who they picked.

Nope, it’s not President Barack Obama, the first  African-American US president who was inaugurated in January.

Nope it’s not Tiger Woods, whose personal drama has created the juiciest story in the country since O.J. Simpson took a ride in his buddy's Bronco 15 years ago.

It’s not even Jon or Kate Gosselin, whose nasty breakup captivated America, before swallowing alive the very show that made them famous.
