Who’s on ‘TIME’ magazine’s 2017 Person of the Year shortlist?

Donald Trump, Patty Jenkins, #MeToo all have one thing in common:  they've all made the shortlist for 'TIME' magazine's 2017 Person of the Year shortlist

Influential American news magazine TIME, has been covering the most important news events every week since it was founded in 1923 and so it makes sense that every year (since 1927) their esteemed editors identify the, according to TIME, "...person or group of people who most influenced the news during the past year, for better or for worse." And that person or group scores the coveted TIME Person of the Year title.

Including the traditional wedding vows of "for better or for worse" in their description of who makes the list goes a long way to explain why highly unpopular figures are included and have been awarded the title in the past with Adolf Hitler taking out the title in 1938 and Joseph Stalin winning twice (1939 and 1942). Other less controversial yet still history-making names to have won include Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Grammy-winning singer Beyoncé.

This year's shortlist is as intriguing as ever with everyone from a president to a crown prince to the #MeToo campaign making the shortlist. And in breaking news, TIME just released their online reader poll results with Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince of Saudi Arabia winning the poll.

Scroll through for TIME's 2017 Person of the Year shortlist, the winner will be revealed on December 6:
