    American Idol- Vote For The Worst! votefortheworst.com

    I was curious if you guys saw this website, it is a really funny idea.


    The idea is to have as many people as possible vote for the WORST person on American Idol. I must admit, I am not that into the show, but the thought of the worst person getting a contract, etc. is too funny. It looks like they want Sanjana (SP) to win, which is so funny. I think it is a great equalizer, because the great singers will still go on to do well, just like in years past.

    Your thoughts?

    I think it's funny, but sucks at the same time for several reasons.

    1) It keeps bad contestants on just so they can keep embarassing themselves.

    2) It means I have to keep listening to bad contestants .

    I consider it more of a plot to undermine the show, to exact revenge for the mistreatment of actual talented people during the audition portion of the show. (Untalented people are chosen over talented people to see the judges, for the comedic entertainment value.)
    Meh. I wish I had time to be that spiteful.

    Well, keep in mind that the voters DO NOT select the winners. The producers of the show make it clear that they are influenced by the voting, but there is a clause that states they may turn off voting at any time. Show insiders also report the producers can and do tweak the numbers to benefit the good of the show. Since this is not a game show, this is not illegal, it is just not that on the up and up.

    Where do I vote with the choice that American Idol, the show itself, is the worst?

    Next month, but in the mean time, by voting for the worst contestant, you will be screwing them over big time, because they will either have to crown the worst person, or come out and admit the voting is just a joke.

    I hate American Idol and can't watch a millisecond of it without wanting to fry puppies in hot oil to make myself feel better.

    Do I have to watch the show in order to exact my revenge on substandard and embarrassing American entertainment?

    Seems like a lot of work just to screw over a show. I could be posting on the internet instead.

    (And you know I'm just kidding about that revenge thing. Or, am I??? Woohahahaha!)

    Vote for the Worst only has an influence when the field is spread wider, i.e. during the first few weeks. The producers DO use these numbers in the early going because it just makes the hard core voters more insane, and, of course, they will vote 20, 30, or 100 times to ensure that their person goes on and the sucky, vote for the worst contestant gets the boot. Scott Savol and Kevin Covais were both products of Vote For The Worst. However, they already screwed up this year as both Slutonella and Sundance got the boot early. Bummer.

    Personally, I think these are people with WAAAAAAY too much time on thier hands. They've got nothing better to do that try to screw up the vote? Most of the losers on their website give up and lose interest after awhile. If you want REAL entertainment, read some of the comments on their message board after their chosen one loses.

    It's pathetic.

    No, from what I understand, you just visit the website the night of the show, and the number is provided to you.

    I have not even gone to the site, and I have never voted for the show/singer etc. I only saw a few episodes, and I must say, I ended up feeling pretty bad for the people who were clearly mentally ill, or DD who were just getting goofed on. I wish there was a way to prevent that, but I guess some people like it.

    I hope you're kidding. Last time I annoyed you, I thought you were kidding until I got served with paternity papers. It took a year and $15,000 to prove I was not the father.
