My favourite reality show contestants
My favourite reality shows are coming to an end this season. One of the shows I watch is Dancing with the Stars. Boy, is this the best season yet so far? All three celebrity contestants left are good dancers, Joey, Laila and Apolo. I’m rooting for Apolo. He’s so flexible and dances like a pro. I don’t care if Len deducted a point for their “raunchy” tango. I loved it!
So last night when I was tucking my nine-year old, Ryland, into bed, I told him that his favourites, Ian and Cheryl got voted out. Next thing I knew, he was crying. I didn’t understand at first why he was crying. I thought that I must have hugged him too tight or kicked him accidentally. I later on found out that it was because his favourites were voted off. Isn’t that sweet?
I was quite happy when it was Melinda, Blake and Jordin that made it to the final three in Season 6 of American Idol. They could all sing. But I really thought that Melinda would win, or at least be in the final two. So I was really surprised when she was voted off tonight. I agree with the judges that she has been the most consistent singer throughout the whole season. I’m not a singer but I think she was the best singer this season. She has been my favourite and I admire her humility and I have been rooting for her ever since. But why didn’t she win? Of course, it was America’s choice. So was America voting based on looks, age, or perhaps personality? Yes, Melinda lacked the self-confidence at the start, but she gained it towards the end.
Another favourite contestant that didn’t make it to the finals was Yau-Man. This guy surprised me when he did well at the darts and arrow challenge and when he made one of the most conversial deal in Survivor history. When he won a truck in one of the reward challenges, he made a deal with Dreamz. He knew that Dreamz doesn’t have a car and he wanted one badly. He offered him the truck, in exchange, should he and Dreamz make it to the final four and Dreamz won immunity, that Dreamz would give it up to Yau. Dreamz accepted. But Dreamz backstabbed him and voted Yau-Man off. It’s true that although Dreamz didn’t win, he has ouwitted, outplayed and outlasted Yau-Man but I still think that Yau-Man played the best game. At the reunion show, Yau-Man said that he has no hard feelings against Dreamz. And how can you not love this guy. He said, “I only have one mantra in life: Love many, trust few and do wrong to none.”
