American Idol Scandal
To be honest, the whole American Idol thing has completely passed me by. I've never watched a single episode of it (though I have spent some time listening to William Hung... I don't know why). But it didn't surprise me to read that American Idol's voting system is essentially a sham, highly vulnerable to manipulation by gamblers.

Like we really care if someone wants to eat cow parts or win a singing contract that will take them nowhere. Reality TV has no point whatsoever.
