Saige, I always thought that comment to Ty was odd - who cares how many times he's in the bottom 3? Yet whenever Suzie is in they shake their heads in astonishment. I just think they couldn't think of anything better to tell him other than the usual "you're just not right..."
If they care about how the fans are voting, then they might want to re-think their love for Suzie. If they're not letting that affect their opinion, then don't use it as an excuse either. JMHO.
