A night after accepting a prestigious honor in Beverly Hills, Colin Kaepernick was named as one of six finalists for Time Magazine's Person of the Year.

TIME's first selection was Charles Lindbergh, the first person to make a solo non-stop flight across the Atlantic.

He was named Time's 2016 Person of the Year, but while he made the shortlist again this year, he likely won't be the victor for 2017. Wonder Woman Director Patty Jenkins broke box office records as Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman took the world by storm.

Musk wants to send his first Tesla Roadster in orbit around Mars
The first flight of the Falcon Heavy is expected to launch in January of 2018, a bit of a delay from its initial 2013 launch date. As if bringing humans to the Red Planet were not hard enough, he has now announced he wants to send his Tesla sports vehicle too.

Colin Kaepernick started a national protest against racism and police brutality after he began kneeling during the national anthem at NFL games toward the end of past year, enraging both the president and vice president.

Kim Jong Un, the despicable dictator of North Korea who now apparently has a nuclear weapon that can reach the United States.

Kaepernick's initial protests have sparked a wave of related demonstrations - particularly after Trump in September used an expletive to describe those who kneel during the anthem. He became a free agent in March and has yet to sign with an National Football League team this season, prompting him to file a collusion grievance against National Football League owners. He has since brought charges against four people in his on-going investigation of potential involvement of the Trump campaign in Russia's efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election. This movement prompted millions of women to speak out about sexual assault and sexual harassment that they had experienced.

President Trump was named Person of the Year last year, calling it "a tremendous honor". The #MeToo movement gained traction after a slew of prominent Hollywood figures were accused of sexual misconduct. Other players followed, and President Trump supercharged the controversy. He was written into the Communist Party's constitution, making him China's most powerful leader since Mao Zedong.

The 2017 Person of the Year will be announced on the TODAY Show Wednesday morning.
