NBC’s I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here! named Damien Fahey and Myleene Klass as co-hosts for the competition reality series. Fahey is a broadcaster and best known as host of MTV’s Total Request Live (TRL). Klass, a TV host, entertainer and musician, is a star in the UK and also a former contestant on the 2006 UK version of I’m A Celebrity, earning the nickname “Queen of the Jungle.”
A controversy erupted yesterday concerning the voting results of last week’s American Idol finale on FOX. It was revealed local AT&T representatives gave Kris Allen fans in Arkansas free text-messaging services and lessons on how to “power vote” at two finale viewing parties. This news made other fans wonder if the voting became skewed too much in favor of Allen over runner-up Adam Lambert. This debate prompted FOX and show producers, 19 Entertainment and FremantleMedia to release this statement:
“Fox and the producers of ‘American Idol’ are absolutely certain that the results of this competition are fair, accurate and verified. Kris Allen is, without a doubt, the American Idol. We have an independent third-party monitoring procedure in place to ensure the integrity of the voting process. In no way did any individuals unfairly influence the outcome of the competition.”
AT&T, a corporate sponsor of American Idol, followed with this statement:
“Last week, countless parties were held in homes, bars, and other public places across America to watch the ‘American Idol’ finale. In Arkansas, a few local AT&T employees were invited to attend two local watch parties organized by the community. Caught up in the enthusiasm of rooting for their hometown contestant, they brought a small number of demo phones with them and provided texting tutorials to those who were interested. Going forward, we will make sure our employees understand our sponsorship celebrates the competition, not individual contestants. That said, it’s quite a leap to suggest that a few individuals could have impacted the final results.”
