Another week, another eliminated idol. This time though it was Alexis Grace, who the judges supposedly had pegged for the final four. Guess that didn't work out. Or they decided not to save her to make it so that people wouldn't think the whole show is rigged. Whatever. The little blonde girl with the pink highlights and the way too tiny outfits got sent packing... after the judges meanly told her they were considering saving her, and after Randy called her by the wrong name. Oh, good times. Below are the highlights of
Allison's Alexis' press conference call.
Screw Mixology. Screw Mixology and its misogynistic, chest-thumping, dick-measuring, outdated, mind-blowingly unfunny and downright offensive take on sex and dating in your 20s and 30s. The concept may be unconventional by traditional sitcom standards (ten strangers at the same New York City bar having various interactions in one single night), but the execution is as lame and stupid as anything you've ever seen on television. I'm still seething.
Grown adults should not chomp on gum during business meetings, or ride skateboards to their dates.
I hate to start off on a rant, but I just can't wait until after the jump. Seriously, why is 90210 2.0 going to get rid of Dustin Milligan, who plays Ethan? He's one of the few characters on that show I can even tolerate. The pentapus? Kinda cute. The fact that they think he's run his course is stupid. Really? Just hook him up with a new girl. I always thought he was supposed to be the Dylan in this scenario. Which means he's got a couple more seasons of life in him yet. Instead, the powers that be are trying to find ways to make watching this show an even more painful experience than it already is (it is my job to watch it... I would have stopped long ago if I could have). Since this apparently means more screen time for the dude playing Liam, and not a promotion for the awesomely underrated Navid, I'm not happy. Okay, now on to the rest of your regularly scheduled, and less rant-filled, news.
Thanks to this new and convoluted Idol format we've found out who the first three people in the Top 12 will be, though in all likelihood we'll forget their names by the time they come back a month from now. The lucky threesome consists of Danny Gokey, Alexis Grace and Michael Sarver, all of whom were put through the rigors of a press conference call on Thursday. But not, we suspect, before some intense media training that wisely must have instructed them not to bad mouth Tatiana, or any of their other group members, lest they end up returning in the wild card round. Plus, it's not good if you are trying to get America to love you. Which Alexis Grace is certainly trying to do with her up with the people answer to the inquiry about who deserved a second chance: "That is a tough question because everybody was good in our group. I mean I would have said that could be top 12 right there." They also weren't entirely sure what was happening between now and the time that we'll see them again, and were all equally vague, but as Michael Sarver put it, "There are opinions floating around about how things should go, but they have not made it clear exactly what's next for us. So, we just kind of take it one step at a time and say, 'Yes, sir. No, sir. Yes, ma'am. No, ma'am' and go there."
Martha Stewart is loosening up in her old age. Either that our her daughter is drugging her food. Something. Alexis, who you may remember from The Apprentice: Martha Stewart (No? Was I the only one who watched that? Never mind. I don't want to know the answer.), is taking aim at mommy dearest in a very public forum. She and her Sirius radio co-host Jennifer Koppelman Hutt, will be analyzing Martha episodes in a Mystery Science Theater 3000 kind of way for the Fine Living Network, ripping on how she performs in certain segments and copes with guests etc...
