I now have indisputable proof that Sanjaya Malakar is being voted for, en-masse, by the entire country of India. Tonights vote, which has kept Sanjaya Malakar in the running, was the final blow to release this earth shattering expose! Every week Sanjaya sings a mediocre, singing in the shower rendition of some song that it sounds like he doesn’t even like. Yet he still passes with flying colors.
Sound suspicious to you? It does to me too. So I watched last night and tonight (normally i don’t but my wife dragged me into this catastrophe of a show) because of the great Sanjaya. Oh the honey sweet voice… that i didn’t hear. Oh the solid tones and on pitch vocals… that never left his lips. So i did a little research.
Does it seem odd that someone can say these two things at the same time:
Q:Most embarrassing moments? A:I don’t get embarrassed.
Q:What’s been your toughest obstacle in life? A:Overcoming shyness.
WTF?!? My head hurts from that. Shyness is basically a fear of being embarrassed. I don’t get it. What exactly are you shy about then? If you don’t get embarrassed but you won’t do things because your shy. OK, fine, i’ll let that one slide.
Apparently he is retarded as well, since after all, the first thing I would think when i get asked the question, “Do you have any lucky charms?”, is the cereal… not… His response was… wait for it… “I don’t eat sugar cereals” Good for you! dimwit. I realize he is 17, and not too worldly. But seriously, im guessing not so high a score on the ACT/SAT huh.
I think this guy was crafted at the Jessica Simpson School of Playing Dumb. I doubt very much that he is an idiot. Actually, probably quite smart. Hopefully very smart, so my tax dollars don’t end up paying his welfare checks while he tries to discover that hey actually can’t sing.
So, you ask where the proof is? Well, its in the pudding. There is no way that America is thinking that he is not one of the worst on the show. Do i think he will win? No, of course not. That would be just ludicrous. And if American Idol producers were smart, they would “put in the fix” to make sure he doesn’t. Because if he was to win, that show is over, and no one will ever watch it again.
But here is the catch. All these reality shows spike votes, drive the content, and create drama, purely for the purpose of ratings. Of course they do, why wouldn’t they. You as a viewer don’t know any different, and only a few very highly paid, very fearful of lawsuit, employees need to be involved. No one thinks Sanjaya should still be there. Even though all the guys on Idol, SUCK, he sucks the most. And he has for quite a few vote cycles now. So, why is he still there?
Ratings. It’s a freaking train wreck. There is no way anyone is watching and not thinking “nails on a chalkboard”. That little girl that was crying the whole time he was singing, and even when he was talking, was planted. Paid actress for sure. She probably was 40 years old and 1 step away from doing fake-child-porn until this came along.
I know girls can be crazy, hell, I’m married to crazy pregnant woman right now, but this is ridiculous.
What’s worse about this, is how successful this little ploy has been. She got a shitload of airtime, and Sanjaya is still on the show. Why was she there? To justify him still being there? I can imagine the meeting:
Shit, people are starting to get suspicious about Sanjaya still being on the show. We need to come up with a deflection strategy. Who can we kill? Pudwiller raises his hand… “what if we do something that could convince people that maybe he is just not ‘their’ style, but that lost of people love him. We could pay a girl to act lovey dovey and start crying for him. people will just eat it up!” Great idea Pudwiller! You get a raise! Call Sanjaya, let him know we are going to get some teeny bopper to cry for him tomorrow.
Ok, so I don’t have any hands-on-proof, but the pieces just don’t fit. This really smells like manufactured reality, and why should it be any different than any other reality show. The Apprentice does it. Survivor does it. Every one of those love/date/dork/hotty/dumbass shows does it. They all manipulate the show from the outside. Why not American Idol.
ps. now i gotta go wash the ick off.
