Taylor's gonna win this thing. No question. But who is next to go?
Last week the bottom three were Ace, Lisa, and Mellisa, with Mellisa leaving.
But Dial Idol (now shut down by AI) said the bottom four was Mellisa, Kevin, Ace, and Lisa - in that descending order. (Mellisa's busy signal count was twice as high as Lisa's.)
The theory goes that Mellisa was sent home even though she did not get the lowest number of votes. However, her votes were low enough that AI could say she had the lowest number of votes and no one would doubt them.
The theory goes that she was sent home because she was judged by the show's producers to be the least important contestant to the show's ratings. Ace has the good looks. Lisa is more talented than Mellisa. And Kevin is a cute nerd who everyone loves to hate. So Mellisa had to go.
So now who is next to go? I can't believe that Lisa's fan base is now any higher than it was last week. Mandesa and Paris will get most of the Black vote. They both have more "soul" than Lisa. Plus Mandesa has the "plus size" vote. And Paris has the "cute" vote. So where does that leave Lisa? Out in the cold, I'd say.
She is still left with a very small fan base. We know she was bottom three last week despite a very strong performance. So even a strong performance this week won't help. At this point I see no reason why the producers would pull her out of the fire again. She adds little of value to the show.
I say she is gone. And Pinnacle Sports is giving 11 to 1 odds against it. Hmmmmmmmmm. I'm tempted.
