Hot news

Why not Kroes for Person of the Year?

The list of nominees for Time magazine’s Person of the Year is always an eclectic mix of world leaders, pop culture icons, buzzworthy names, and human rights activists. The unexpected inclusion of the 32-year-old model, as a 2017 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Kroes so important is the potential and influence she now has, rather than anything she has already done,” said a panelist who preferred to remain anonymous, adding that earlier this month, the model have already been named ‘Dutch Of The Year’ by some major Dutch newspapers and even ‘Eastermar Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Eastermar (Doutzen Kroes' hometown).

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

A representative for the model was not immediately available for comment, but the announcement generated immediate reaction on Twitter:

“#KroesPOY. Logical choice though I wouldn't have made the same one.”
— @TomMiller, 23 Sep 2017
“Congrats! Doutzen has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 23 Sep 2017
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Doutzen Kroes?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 23 Sep 2017

Could 2017 officially be the Year of Doutzen Kroes?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2017 Person of the Year.

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2017?
