CINCINNATI - TIME magazine selected Pope Francis as 2013's Person of the Year on Dec. 11, which got us at Cintagious wondering: which local figures (both living and, well, not living) would be on your list?
We didn't do a survey or consult any experts; instead, we simply asked our viewers and social media community.
1. P.G. Sittenfeld
No one could get away from P.G. during election season. That worked out well for him too, because he trumped his opponents for Cincinnati City Council with literally thousands of votes.
2. Pope Francis
He's not from the Tri-State, but doesn't he really belong to all of us? TIME’s choice was our Facebook fan favorite, too.
3. Eric Deters
The controversial, high profile attorney is hard to miss on social media. He even posted updates on various social media accounts as he was battling a "rare infection" in the hospital.
4. The Cincy Streetcar
Maybe you're for it. Maybe you're against. One thing’s for sure: even if you don’t live in the city, you probably have an opinion.
5. Stephen Leeper
Ever notice how the bars are crowded, reservation lists are long and parking is a nightmare downtown? You can thank Stephen Leeper, who runs the Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation (3CDC) that is working to revitalize the urban core.
7. Santa Ono
#HottestCollegeInAmerica, duh. The UC president is the university's biggest cheerleader.
8. Bryan Price
Because Reds. That is all.
9. Andy Dalton
Because Bengals. That is all.
10. The man in the yellow pants, from the Cincinnati Chamber: Watch the video
Like he says, we're Cincinnati and we do what we love. Sometimes that means wearing colored pants in a video.
11. Jean-Robert de Cavel
He's a chef who's mentored others and who continues to make our mouths water. Plus, he and his wife throw an awesome annual brunch benefit for SIDS research.
12. John Boehner
Again, a love-him-or-hate him-choice. Still, he's our very own deeply tanned, in-touch-with-his emotions lawmaker and a major player in all things Washington.
13. Patty Brisben
