Why not Upton 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 28-year-old model, as a 2020 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Upton 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 ‘American Of The Year’ by some major American newspapers and even ‘St. Joseph Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in St. Joseph (Kate Upton's 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:

“Kate Upton Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 1 Dec 2020
“Congrats! Kate has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 1 Dec 2020
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Kate Upton?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 1 Dec 2020

Could 2020 officially be the Year of Kate Upton?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2020 Person of the Year.

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2020?
