According to freshly eliminated American Idol 12 contestant, Lazaro Arbos, one of the remaining girls REALLY wants to win American Idol. He’s not naming naming, but in an interview with ABC News Radio, he questions the unnamed contestant’s mental health AND makes comparisons to the Hunger Games! VIA ABC News Radio
“I’m not gonna say names and I don’t wanna sound rude,” Lazaro told ABC News Radio backstage at Live with Kelly & Michael earlier in the week. “But I think that one woman in particular is cra-a-a-a-z-y and she wants to win!”
Lazaro would not say if the contestant was Kree, Candice, Amber, Angie or Janelle, but he thinks that she — whoever she is — needs to chill out. Big time.
“She thinks that we’re in The Hunger Games and she’s fighting for her life,” dished Lazaro about the mystery contestant. “She needs to realize that it’s not about winning: it’s about what you do after the show.” As he points out, “The people that win are sometimes less successful than the people that don’t win.”
This crew is full of smack talkers! There was Curtis and Angie who appeared to be unhappy about Lazaro’s continued presence in the competition. And there were tweets of celebration between Curtis and Burnell when Lazaro was finally eliminated.
I’ve never seen so much public backbiting between the contestants during the competition in all the years I’ve been watching Idol.
So kids. Who do you think it is? I have my guess, but I’m going to keep it to myself for now. I probably shouldn’t have added Amber to the poll. He’s been telling everyone he can to vote for her, despite being forbidden by TPTB to endorse any of the remaining contestants.
