Finding Fascinating Folk

12/02/1998 at 12:00 AM EST

'Tis the season for lists. Barbara Walters has compiled hers for her Tuesday night TV special, "The 10 Most Fascinating People of 1999." Among Walters' Wonders: Jesse Ventura, Ricky Martin, Jordan's new King Abdullah, baseball's Joe Torre, Susan Lucci (who finally copped her daytime Emmy this year), Viacom CEO Sumner Redstone (who copped CBS) and Johnathan Lee Iverson, 23, the youngest ringmaster in the 129-year history of the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus and the first African-American to address "children of all ages." One more "fascinating" person: Monica Lewinsky, who was spotted by The PEOPLE Daily shopping for her interview outfit at New York's Saks Fifth Avenue last week.
