In one of the most outrageous moves ever in a reality TV competition,
Grease You’re The One That I Want has changed the rules of the game and
infuriated many viewers of the show. Once the top fourteen were
selected, viewers were led to believe that their votes would determine
which Danny and which Sandy would be going home.
However, instead of revealing the results of America’s vote and eliminating one Danny and one Sandy at the beginning of the show as promoted by NBC, host Denise Van Outen announced “In an amazing twist, America’s two least favorite Dannys and Sandys must sing for their survival in order to stay in this competition.”
The decision of who was going home went from being in America’s hands to being back in the judges hands. The two Sandys in the bottom two were Allie Schulz and Ashley Anderson. The two Dannys in the bottom two were Jason Celaya and Matt Nolan. Before the bottom four competed in a sing off for their survival, host Billy Bush revealed that Jason and Allie received the lowest number of votes from America.
However, after the sing off, the panel of judges elected to save Jason Celaya and Allie Schulz, which reversed the decision that had been made by America. The reason the judges gave for saving Jason was because Broadway was no place for beginners, and the reason the judges gave for saving Allie was because they had no idea why she was in the bottom two. Because of this decision by the judges, Matt Nolan and Ashley Anderson were eliminated from the competition. Ironically, Matt and Ashley were the two singers that the judges had brought back just two weeks ago, because they felt they deserved a second chance.
Needless to say, many fans on NBC’s official Grease You’re The One That I Want message board are outraged by the sudden rule change that snatched the ultimate decision out of the hands of viewers. Angry posters are accusing the show of false advertising and questioning why they should continue to vote if the judges are just going to override their decisions.
