American Idol is fixed. The winner is picked even before the show airs. The
judges are told who to send home and who to keep. I know, one of my friends
daughters was a contestant and she witnessed the fix first hand. American Idol
is a joke and should be removed off the air for being a total fraud.
I remember a few years back when Paula Abdul was pretty sauced on the show and
in her ummm....juiced-up state, let it slip who the winner was before it had
happened. I don't remember her exact words but she read off the wrong
script that gave the outcome. The cameraman quickly panned to the other judges
and they were stunned at what she had so carelessly just slobbered out. They
tried to cover for her but it wasn't long before she was let go from the
show. So I agree, there seems to be a certain amount of 'staging'
@ SGYes. let's remove American Idol so we can turn our
attention to Duck Dynasty (staged), and other "Real" programs out there.
What was the purpose of selecting a Top 30 if one third of them would never
perform live for the viewers vote? The judges should have just narrowed their
selection to 20 to start with.
Duck Dynasty is obviously scripted but not the worst offender--the folks
personalities still shine through. They ought to take a clue from Alaska, the
last frontier and do their own show without the A&E producers writing fluff.
But AlaskaTLF is probably scripted to some extent too.Too bad
because folks look to reality TV for some truth in our propagandized
degenerating world, IMO. So I like House Hunters but it is probably staged.
