Sure, I love Tina and Mercedes, and Sam and Brittany are funny—but my two favorite Glee stars (as well as my favorite singer on the show, Santana) are both gone, and now I’m left wondering if I even want to watch.
Then there was this summer’s Glee Project, which was just as big of a joke as the last one. Again, a white boy without any noticeable reason to be on Glee—no different abilities, nothing people make fun of, not even a personality at all, really—was selected as the winner, leaving me to wonder if Glee is really about the underdog, or about who Ryan Murphy and co. think will have girls squealing over the most.
We had some real contestants who should have made it on the show this year—from a girl in a wheelchair to a Muslim girl to a big, beautiful, confident girl to a couple of shy, coffee-house type singers, we had pretty much an entire Glee cast on our hands! Yet the producers chose the all-American boy. Again.
Well, last season it as an all-Irish boy, which was pretty much the same thing, in terms of what he brought to the show.
