Sorry, but when your own health takes a backseat to this show. AND THIS SHOW comes first over this contestants health, you know it's script written for ratings.

I just pray, if this is all real, this man is NOT jeapordizing his life. For pete sakes, he went through a blood transfusion for stomach pains? Something ain't right here, what hospital makes a diagnosis and then releases him after this.

LA you're on the line    

A blood transfusion and then released? I can believe some IV fluids, but a blood transfusion? Someone needs to check the accuracy of this.

Typical fake "drama" created to drum up ratings. Reality shows are disgusting.

Don't forget to add in there Jennifer "Letmehaveabreakdown" lopez on the show. LIKE COME ON, I found Paula Abdul unbelievable with all her tears when passing over fanfavorites. These are supposed to be "SERIOUS" professionals. Since when does DRAMA play a part in the show? And they let Abdul go why???? At least she was a bit more believable because of the booze and pills making her emotional.

Every year, someone in the top 24 pulls the hospital card. And you can never say they planned it, but sometimes you wonder...
