The only thing that I don't understand regarding this theory is WHY?? I actually thought that Gilles winning would be the favored result of ABC, considering they had already cast him on one of their shows (Brothers and Sisters) and the extra publicity couldn't hurt. The past 2 seasons had a female winner, so I would have thought they would have preferred a male winning that time. I'm not sure why they would fix things to make Shawn win, and what benefit they got from it, even if that is what happened.Originally Posted by mindy384;4092211;
I always suspected that, like Apolo, Shawn came into the show with a huge Olympics fan base and was kind of unbeatable from the start, although Gilles came pretty close.
