you guys are right - the more I'm reading the more I'm finding out that a public vote could possibly be flogged by the amateur mentality that people such as Zack and Amy represent - not to mention that it would only work for the finale as it seems that taping for the show has already concluded.
Luckily I found this website where, it seems, rational and reasonable people can let off some steam per say.
I tell you one thing, Keith has to be commended for his maturity because if I were on the show Zack would be picking up his teeth with two broken arms.
I still would like to see audience/Internet participation at the (hopefully) live finale. I would love to ask Amy where it is she got the idea that she was on the deed to PH. Or why the "new" Beau (upon return) excitedly joined in with the lynch mob against CDKT, completely ignoring the fact that he was sent home with stolen money, or repeatedly ridiculed by Zack and Alex behind his back...
I would also like to ask the producers why Alex and Kristin were even allowed to cheat at BJ in the first place? If it was ratings they were after, I think FOX could've created a helluva lot more drama if the whole stealing/cheating incident was called out into the open, instead of Keith's timid attempt to question Alex about it - which predictably fizzled.
Certainly the whole cheating thing was anti-climactic, and its things like this that scare me about the finale -
