Last season on American Idol, romance among contestants was red hot, but this year it’s ice cold…
During last year’s run of American Idol, TMZ broke a story about contestants taking hookups to a new level. Apparently a good chunk of the contestants were getting intimate, and two relationships even came out of it.
Behind the scenes on this season of American Idol, it’s a completely different story. This year three contestants Alyssa Raghu, Madison VanDenburg, and Riley Thompson are all underage, making fraternization a no-no. Beyond that, almost all of the other contestants are unavailable.
We’re going to take you through the relationship status’s of this years contestants, and show you why we don’t expect much romance.
This blonde bombshell with the awesome voice is off the market. Ashley is dating James Gray Dawson VIII, who just so happens to be another talented musician. The two of them seem so happy, they even have a picture doing a Lady and the Tramp with an ice cream sandwich. ‘Nuff said…
Laci Kaye Booth
Yet another beautiful blonde with a voice to match, it’s no wonder she isn’t single. Laci’s beau is Cannon Bullock, we don’t really know who he is, but they seem to be very happy together with their pet dire wolf.
Well, if you’ve seen 90 Day Fiancé you know Evelyn is married to a guy named David Zermeño from Spain. They met and decided to go through a process of getting a K1 visa allowing David to stay in the U.S. if they’re married within 90 days. She was featured on the show as a musician, so it’s not that surprising to see her on American Idol.
Wade is dating a girl from his hometown in Arizona named Jasmine. She fully support his career and they seem absolutely in love. Despite Wade’s fate on American Idol, I think we may be hearing wedding bells in the near future.
Walker is also dating a girl from his hometown named India Ellison. If you saw his “promposal” video, you would see that knows how to use that voice to get to a girls heart.
Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon
Jeremiah is dating a developer and realtor named John Keister. The two are a great looking couple, and I don’t see an American Idol “showmance” breaking that barrier.
We haven’t been able to find anything posted publicly, but we have it on good authority that Laine is in a relationship. It’s not hard to believe he’s taken considering seeing as how he could make Katy Perry melt when he was 17. Just sayin…
So that leaves us with: Alejandro Aranda, Uché, Dimitrius Graham, and Eddie Island. We believe Alejandro and Eddie are both straight, so we its highly unlikely they’ll be making hotel room visits late at night.
Dimitrius and Uché are both reportedly bisexual, but we haven’t seen anything that would indicate they’re focused on anything but the music. Even if that were the case, it certainly doesn’t have the heat of last years top 14. This is probably unwelcome news to the network whose grasping at straws in the rating.
To see how the rest of this season plays out, tune into American Idol Sunday 8p.m. EDT/PST
