Wayne, I have always talked about my love/hate relationship with this show. As a viewer, we are manipulated. We are shown only things the Producers want to be shown in an effort to sway our mind that things are going a particular way. I have no doubt this show is scripted (to a point). Still, it succeeds in keeping us entertained week after week. And, yes, I can't believe that there was no discussion about what goes on in the Island of Idols.
