American Idol had its third episode of the new season, and it actually did a pretty good job at holding on to last weeks ratings, but the real story was the show producers closing on a guy named Chris Medina. And here’s why they did…
Contestant Chris Medina has been with his fiancée for eight years, almost three of which they’ve been engaged. In October 2009, two months before their vows, she was in an accident and suffered a traumatic brain injury that left her in a coma for a month-and-a-half. Medina and her mother are now her caregivers. “What kind of guy would I be if I walked out when she needed me the most?” he said, after footage of him helping her walk down stairs and getting her comfortable in her wheelchair played.
His fiancée was among those he brought with him to the audition.
Jesus Christ! Seriously? This is so cold and scheming and manipulative, I’d really like to know where the producers were two years ago. They might be the ones who did it.
