The latest odds for TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year 2023 see Elon Musk head the betting. Musk hasn’t been far away from the headlines throughout the year following his takeover of Twitter. His purchase hasn’t always made positive news, but Musk’s name hasn’t been far from the lips of people across the globe.
It would be hard to say he would be the most controversial winner of the award, as previous victors include Adolf Hitler (1938), Joseph Stalin, and Vladimir Putin (2007). Musk previously won the award in 2021. Last year’s winner was Volodymyr Zelensky, and the Ukrainian president would be a popular winner again in 2023
Greta Thunberg is another previous winner of the award, with the climate activist having landed the prestigious honor in 2019. Repeat winners of the award aren’t uncommon, with 14 people having landed the Person of the Year title on multiple occasions.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were never far away from the headlines throughout 2022, with the release of their documentary on Netflix, and Harry’s self-indulging book titled ‘Spare’. Both offer interesting value at +3300.
We could see a first-time winner of the award this year, and that could come in the form of the Iran Protesters. The protests began in 2021, and they are campaigning against the imposition of Islamic law, lack of freedom of expression, and the violation of women’s rights.
