TheFeed were more than a little disappointed when Chris Sligh got voted off the American Idols this week. The chubby, bespectacled Christian went into the competition with the singular goal of making David Hasselhoff cry, and that's more than enough for us. Still, we had no idea that Sligh was so unhappy with the competition until after he was eliminated. He admitted to being ready to quit the competition two weeks ago, saying he never really wanted to win the game.
So, why didn't he quit? Because, if you make the Top 10, you get to go on the American Idol tour and gather a big, fat paycheck, and stop working for a marketing company in some backwater town in South Carolina, that's why.
Good call, Sligh. Now, if only Sanjaya would get voted off the show, the rest of the world would be happy.
