Thanks for all your work to provide this site. You did a great job!
I hope everyone understands that FOX has played US well. This should be a good lesson for all of us who, in the future, might possibly be duped by a slick, and less than forthright organization.
Perhaps Clay's appeal was so rabid on this site because way back in our minds we were hoping that a decent, up-standing young American, who could think, articulate with intelligence, and maintain an upbeat personality could possibly walk into the greed filled, distorted arena of the universe called the entertainment industry, and change what we think of it. Unfortunately the direct opposite has happened. We only have had affirmed for us that the only thing that counts there is the wishes of the ultra-greedy, power hungry producers, record labels and talent management companies.
I hope that because of the tainted results we do not lose sight of the qualities the made us love Clay in the first place. I for one will always appreciate what he has brought to the table and will remember the grace and humility that he as continued to show during the circus far longer than other contestants. I will continue to hope and pray that my children will take from this the lesson that the best donít always <b>have</b> to win, than maintaining your values, passions and beliefs are more important than winning. To other parents, I say to you; use this as a tool to instruct your children on how life SHOULD be lived.
I have enjoyed my time at the FORT. Thank you all.
