Nobody who isn't gifted is going to accomplish what these kids have. You don't get 1550 or 1530 on your SATs even in these days of inflated numbers without being an incredibly gifted student. ABC isn't dumb. They chose the most charismatic applicants they got. No one would want to watch the kids spend the evening trying to see who could write the best software program or reading War And Peace from cover to cover. One thing that is annoying me is that the last two weeks the hometown videos they have shown have been of two of the three to make the final challenge. By the time they had showed Milana and Amari's videos, I knew the two of them were in the Admissions Showdown.
I thought the funniest thing about last night's show was the look on Jeremy's face when Melissa said that initially she was attracted to him. I'm guessing not a lot of girls at his high school flirt with him. I did notice him dancing with her.
