Everyone’s favorite talk show host Barbara Walters is talking about her past two decades hosting ABC’s “10 Most Fascinating People.”

The legend may have left her spot on “The View” but that doesn’t mean she gave up her interviewing duty all together.

The 85-year-old still hosts “Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People.”  She recently spoke about the show saying, “It’s crazy.  I’m so fortunate to have been doing this for so many years.  I would’ve had to have been out of my mind to think that would happen.”

When it comes to how the coveted list is chosen Walters said, “We try to see who made a particular mark in various areas during the last year.  We just don’t do criminals or scandals.  It’s a very upbeat program.”

Making the list this year is David Koch, entrepreneur Elon Musk, TV personality Michael Strahan, actor Neil Patrick Harris, Scarlett Johansson, Taylor Swift, Oprah and four others Walters and her team deemed “fascinating.”

“Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014” airs Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
