I’m posting tonight so that I can post my initial thoughts about our two favorite reality tv shows. First up: American Idol. I know a lot of people are gonna be talkin’ about the argument between Simon and Randy at the beginning of the show. I partially think it was staged, but I also think Simon has a valid point in saying that two people were pushed forward to the finals on a sympathy vote. Mr. My Parents Are Deaf from two weeks ago didn’t deserve it, and nor did Backstreet Sync Town guy from last week. Who did deserve it? Miss Run-to-You definitely did. She was great.
So tonight my first pick is the last singer (Christina?). I love her voice and can totally envision her in a Broadway musical (and in some cases that’s a good thing, people). Ejay surprised me – I liked his song and since he was the wild-card alternate to replace the old guy who got booted for lying he got props despite coming in late. Kudos to him. The only other one I can think of is the chick in the blue outfit (Melanie?) – I think she sang “and you-and you-and you – you’re gonna love me.” Isn’t that what she sang? And don’t you love how I don’t bother to learn their names? It’s mainly because I still feel strongly that Justin is gonna win the whole thing. Although I really really liked Christina tonight. I’d buy her album before I’d buy Justin’s because I love her voice that much. Justin’s just…hot.
Now, moving on to The Mole – another one down. I had thought Katie was the Mole, and voila – she got booted. No surprise there – my picks usually do get booted. I’m the anti-odds. Just go opposite of whatever I say and you’re sure to win money. Last week I mentioned I thought Heather might be the Mole, and my friend LP brought up a good point – when she saw her fiancee the first thing she said was, “I’ve had no one to talk to,” which was reminiscent of Katherine’s near melt-down as the Mole last season. I mean, isn’t Heather supposed to have some massive alliance with Katie? Why can’t you talk to her. Maybe cuz you’re THE MOLE? Meanwhile, wouldn’t it be great if Darwin was the Mole – I don’t think he’s failed in any mission, has he? A mole who tries to win money – now THAT is a good Mole.
