I’m not even sure why I “still” watch American Idol anymore. I got tired of the “joke” rounds a few years ago and I’ve never really enjoyed the “serious” episodes ever. I guess the only thing that keeps me coming is the potential for a bangin’ chick every now and then.
The problem with this is that while the judges seem to let a few through to finals, the “voters” (going crazy with the quotes today) tend to weed out the hottest girls first — most likely out of jealousy considering it’s mostly fat housewives calling in.
The latest to make it through that will ultimately get cut soon is Tampa’s Janell Wheeler. A very pretty blonde-haired, brown-eyed beauty that squeaked into the Top 24 of this season. The only thing she really has going for her is that she’s slightly on the chubby side and the “pretty but chubby” chicks are the only ones that really have a shot to make it far on this show. The problem with her is that her vocals don’t seem all that impressive, but, of course, that won’t keep her from being my Babe of the Week.
