This is too good to be true or in this case too bad to be true for American Idol. Couldn’t they be any more obvious?
Tonight’s Top 11 results proved two things. First America got it right to eliminate Paige Miles. After her shaky rendition of the worst song pick of the night (sang almost every season!) “Against all Odds” which she accepted openly as a ‘poor performance,’ she deserved to go. Against our will, Tim Urban makes it on tour despite mediocre talent or lack thereof and we can only blame Paige for not fighting her right to stay in the competition!
That leads us to second, we have been speculating on a conspiracy theory that we caught on from exit interviews of eliminated contestants and call us crazy but we didn’t make this up, since Top 24- almost all of the contestants who are roommates or become roommates get eliminated!
We would like to hear an explanation from American Idol! If you know a mathematician or statistician, please ask them, what are the odds of this happening?!! If the contestants fate rely on the people’s vote week after week, how does one explain the phenomenon of having two roommates go on the same night?! Not once did this happen, not twice but four times! Doesn’t that sound downright puzzling?
American Idol may have committed yet another oversight and blunder by letting the idols talk about who they’re rooming in with. It wouldn’t even raise a flag if (sorry Lilly!) Lilly Scott didn’t stir the pot calling it strange. She opened the proverbial Pandora box! When asked, what her expectations were going into the results show, she candidly replied:
“You know, the people I thought were going to go home were completely different than the people that left, including myself. It’s really strange things, like people that are roommates have gone home on the same night. It’s really strange.
Katelyn and I were roommates and Todrick and Alex were roommates and Janell and Ashley were roommates … but that might be a twist of fate, and how it works out, I don’t know.”
These people were eliminated on the same night and were roommates:
1. Ashley Rodriguez/Janell Wheeler – booted Top 24
2. Katelyn Epperly/Lilly Scott – booted Top 16
3. Alex Lambert/Todrick Hall- booted Top 16
Could it be that John Park and Jermaine Sellers ended up being roommates when they were axed during the Top 20? Obviously, when Haeley Vaughn was eliminated during Top 20- she was roommates with her mother since she’s under 18. Haeley was paired with Michelle Delamor to go that night. Michelle was roommates with Crystal Bowersox at the start of Top 24 until she was gone on Top 20 night.
Katie Stevens who is 17, is roommates with her mom. So is 17 year old Aaron Kelly.
But can it really be that out in the open, happening before our very eyes?
When Lacey Brown was eliminated, she revealed that she was roommates with Paige Miles!!! We suggested the idea that maybe Paige will go home this week BUT shoved it because we really wanted Tim Urban gone!! We thought Idol would play the 5 girls, 5 guys card going on the Summer tour this season- which could have meant Tim goes and Paige stays.
Then again, it would have broken up Idol’s current rooming arrangements… How hard is it to pack and move when as we understand, the contestants only get to have one suitcase?
Didi Benami is Siobahn Magnus’ roommate when Top 24 started. In an interview during the the Top 12 announcement after party, Didi was asked who her roommate was and she hesitated to answer because she wasn’t sure she’s allowed to say it. She seemed to look at one Fox rep for an OK and then tried to answer the question somewhat vague by saying quote unquote, I was Siobhan’s roommate but I think they’re switching us now and I may be rooming in with Crystal…quote unquote.
Going back, Michelle Delamor was roommates with Crystal Bowersox. When Michelle left, Idol didn’t probably change anything which meant that Crystal was living alone for a while until Idol decided (from what Didi said), to put Didi to room in with her. We can only infer that Siobhan may have been without a roommate since the change.
Now that the Top 10 idols are moving to the Idol mansion, perhaps Crystal, Didi and Siobhan are all going to be in one big room or maybe they get to have their own rooms so our ‘roommates elimination’ conspiracy theory becomes dead from hereon.
We wanted to record our observations to the world and lay it out on Idol fans to help us unravel this utterly unbelievable coincidences!
Does anyone care at all that the implication might be that what Idol have been criticized for all these years is true? That everything, every tiny little thing on American Idol is staged? That they somehow manage to maneuver things according to what they want as outcome? Go search on Google: “american idol is rigged” and you’ll be surprised at the number of hits. If you have auto-search suggest, Google even pre-fills the phrase for you- meaning it is a widely searched phrase. People are wondering.
Website after website, they are insinuating that American Idol picks the winner and the second placer according to who they think is more profitable and favorable. There are even ex-idol contestants speaking out about it. The roommate elimination conspiracy theory just somehow validates the longstanding controversies about how American Idol works…
Will anyone from American Idol address this issue or ignore it…? Of course they will ignore it. But if you are an American Idol fan we want your thoughts on this incredible matter. As this season’s favorite word, tell us we are “over-thinking” this issue! Or if you think we have something here, do tell…
Andrew talks about being roommates with Lee DeWyze; Michael Lynche is roommates with Casey James before the Top 12; Tim Urban says he just found out he’s roommates with Casey
