Okay, so you people telling me to get over myself... I can only conclude that you have been living under a rock and have never heard about these horrific conditions around the world. I've heard about them for years, and have chosen to donate to the causes I choose.
AI was deliberately manipulative and misleading--for the sake of their ratings. They knew very well that they wouldn't get the viewers if they announced in advance that there would be no elimination.
And it makes me sick to know that they used these victims of disease and poverty for their own personal gain. And yes, that is EXACTLY what they have done.
They announced that they got 77 million votes this week, which is an outright lie. There's no way they went up from 38 million one week to 77 million the next.
