When it comes to people we admire, Bill Gates and Angelia Jolie top the list.  The survey of 37,000 people in 35 countries was completed by YouGov, an international data analytics firm, which says Bill Gates has always been top of the list since beginning the annual survey years ago and Angelia Jolie has placed first for women since the list was separated between the sexes in 2015. While the founder of Microsoft and Academy Award winning actress may have different careers, both are known for their humanitarian causes worldwide. Just below Bill Gates is Barack Obama, actor Jackie Chan third, China President Xi Jingping and Chinese business magnate Jack Ma round out the top 5 men. Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Queen Elizabeth II and Hillary Clinton round out the top 5 most admired women worldwide. On the worldwide list, the majority of women featured are from the entertainment industry with appearances by Emma Watson, Madonna, Taylor Swift and Gal Gadot. For guys, many are business moguls and sports stars including Warren Buffet, Elon Musk, Michael Jordan and David Beckham. When it comes to Americans voting on the most admired men and women, the list changes a bit with President Obama at the top, followed by President Trump, the Reverend Billy Graham, Pope Francis and Bill Gates at number 5. First Lady Michelle Obama is tops for women followed by Oprah Winfrey, Queen Elizabeth II, Hillary Clinton and Ellen DeGeneres at number 5.  See the entire list by country here [CLICK HERE].
