Vote For The Worst
« on: April 28, 2006, 04:15:44 PM »
Well, the friendly folks at VFTW is at it again. With their choice finally ousted from the competition they have now resolved to back Taylor Hicks as the Worst Person to vote for. What do you think about this?

I think because they don't see him as a threat to Chris or Katharine, they are hoping to put Taylor into the final two and possibly sole survivor, err winner.

Thanks for the stats. Do people actually bet on this? How do they come up with their figures?

:ythat: :amen:   No way can VFTW compete with last week's 47.5 million votes.  VFTW's voters are included in that figure...like a few drops in a bucket!  :snics:

I've felt that way for a long time. They might have more success toward the beginning of the voting season when the vote are spread out more. But when it's this tight and the yare getting over 40 million votes, yea a drop in the bucket.

sportsbook.com odds

Sportsbook.com bettors lose a favorite in Kellie; 17% of wagers at Sportsbook.com backed American Idol's most recent casualty

NEW YORK, April 28 /PRNewswire/ - Simon Cowell predicted she would be in the top three at the start of the fifth season of American Idol, and sportsbook.com bettors felt the same way about Kellie Pickler. But the journey of America's new sweetheart came to an abrupt end when the 19 year old from Albemarle, NC got the hook last night. Last week Pickler had 5-1 odds at sportsbook.com and 17.0 per cent of the wagers in her favor, but her rendition of Unchained Melody didn't score with audience voters.

The number one and two favorites at Sportsbook.com remain unchanged with Chris Daughtry, a 13-10 favorite received 24.7 per cent of wagers to-date and Katharine McPhee at 11-5 garnering 21.8 per cent of bettors' backing.

"This week more people voted on American Idol than ever before and it was no different at Sportsbook.com," said Alex Czajkowski, Marketing Director, Sportsbook.com. "As the popularity of reality TV continues to grow so does fan interest in wagering on the outcome. Everybody bets on Reality TV."

The likeliest contestant to be sent packing next week is Paris Bennett. She has the worst odds of winning at 20-1, according to the odds makers.

I don't understand either.   Paris is the worst of all of them.  Everyone would like to see her off so you'd think VFTW would pick Paris. :groan:

Yeah, you'd think VFTW would choose Paris, but I think they chose Taylor b/c his performance sucked compared to his previous ones.  It wasn't his fault though. It was the AI staff's fault and now VFTW is capitalizing on it.   An excerpt from Jeff's article states: "...Taylor didnít have nearly as much time to work on his song as some of the others."

I just finished reading all the comments left for me in regards to my recent article. Wow, did I get picked apart for saying that Vote For the Worst chose Taylor as the worst singer. In reality they mostly chose him because he's the one least liked by the Fox network, Simon and others affiliated in the business. It really wasn't my intention to define in great detail the ethical implications of VFTW, mearly to highlight that they was picked next by them.

Maybe I'll write a VFTW retraction, just as Simon and Randy did. LOL

Bath Fizzy, as I received so many letters from my Taylor article. They were quick to point out that VFTW doesn't necessarily vote for the worst singer, in Taylor's case they are trying to vote for who deserves it. I think they should change their name from VFTW to VFWDI.

yeah people for other countries email me asking how to reach Boston Rob, Shane, and Jerri.  :lol3:

Taylor should go back to singing at kids bday parties and kareokee bars. He is this seasons Clay.

we should call his fans Taymates.  :lol3:

Katherine should win.

to offset all you loyal fan of Taylor yes he can sing better than me, everyone has a right to their opinion even if yours in wrong  :lol3: ; and I have better hair than him  :lol3:

bring it ____ :meow:
