Reality Check: Who got voted off what this week...
It was a great week for reality TV. This week, American Idol got rid of Sanjaya while America's Next Top Model and Dancing with the Stars each also sent my least favorite contestant packing. Here's who got voted off what this week.
It was country music week on American Idol, and great things always happen on the country week themed. This year, we can thank country music for finally kicking Sanjaya Malakar to the curb. If you've been living under a rock, he's the kid on American Idol who was pissing everyone off by not getting voted (or dropping out) week after week. All of those worries are over, because Sanjaya was voted off American Idol on Wednesdays results show.
I was shocked to see both Lakisha Jones and Blake Lewis in the bottom three with Sanjaya. I was also shocked that Randy, Paula and Simon seemed to believe that Lakisha deserved to be there. In the end, country too Sanjaya out of Idol. Next week, the remaining contestants will be singing gospel!
America's Next Top Model:
This week the model hopefuls loaded up their dreams and aspirations and moved to Australia. Each year, Tyra Banks takes the contestants to a new fashion-conscious city to compete. Upon landing down under, Australian supermodel Erika Heynatz greeted the contestants where they dove right into their first challenge.
The girls were asked to interview people on the street while trying to use Aussie slang. The winner was announced at the end of the show, and that girl gets to be a special corespondent on the Tyra Banks Show.
Their second challenge was to shoot a Cover Girl commercial with an Australian accent. Most of them really sucked. In the end, Natasha - the mail order bride- was called first and won the spot on Tyra's other show.
The only person who didn't have a photo in Tyra's hand was Jael. That's okay, she was really starting to get on my nerves!
Dancing with the Stars:
This was an interesting week on Dancing with the Stars. America keeps falling in love with Heather Mills even though she tried to stand on her prosthetic leg and fell over. She's safe this week, and I suspect she'll be around for a while.
I'm not one for delayed gratification, so I'll cut to the chase... former basketball star Clyde Drexler and his professional partner Elena Grinenko earned 13 points out of 30, one of the lowest scores on the competition thus far.
"You're the worst dancer in this competition," judge Carrie Ann Inaba told him, "and tonight was really bad."
Clyde bowed out gracefully saying, "I want to thank the fans who voted and kept us in the competition," he said. "Lord knows they were keeping us in."
