Donald Trump landed a spot on Barbara Walters’ 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011 on ABC Wednesday, where he slammed Saturday Night Live funnyman Seth Meyers for a joke he made at his expense at this year's White House Correspondents' Dinner.

"Donald Trump often talks about running as a Republican, which is surprising," Meyers said at the April event. "I just assumed he was running as a joke."

Trump on Wednesday's special called Meyers a "third-rate comedian" who "couldn't even say the lines he had."

The billionaire remarked that Meyers appeared to have "marbles in his mouth" during his set at the event.

"His entire evening ... he was a failure," The Donald told Walters. (Meyers had no response to the digs on his Twitter page as of early Thursday.)

Apple owner Steve Jobs, who died in October at 56, topped the list, marking the first time in 18 years of doing the special that Walters awarded the top selection to someone who’d died. Walters said she’d already earmarked the top spot for Jobs when he retired in August, but never got the chance to interview him.

Others who made the list included: the Kardashians, Amanda Knox, Herman Cain, Derek Jeter, Simon Cowell, Modern Family stars Eric Stonestreet & Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Pippa Middleton and Katy Perry.
