Poll: Who do you think will be TIME's Person of the Year for 2023? [View all]

I took the nominees from the list on SportsGeek.com, which lists the current odds of who'll win. I left off one name on their list - Lionel Messi - because I think his chances are practically nil, even though the odds for some names are longer than his. Zelenskyy won last year.

TIME will reveal its choice on Dec. 10
