Constantine voted off American Idol 4; is Vote for the Worst campaign to blame?

Constantine voted off American Idol 4; is Vote for the Worst campaign to blame?
American Idol 4 fans kept Scott Savol in the top three and sent rocker Constantine Maroulis home last night. Also in the bottom three: Anthony Fedorov and Vonzell Solomon. The shock of being eliminated has already taken quite a toll on Constantine, affecting him physically, as this photo from Yahoo! News shows:

So how the hell are Scott and Anthony still around while Constantine is about the rejoin his band? It may have something to do with a site called Vote for the Worst. The title explains it all, but why would someone want to sabotage America’s favorite love-fest of a reality show? The site explains itself:

American Idol is the most watched television series in the world, but a pattern has emerged that makes the show pretty boring. The producers and judges pick one contestant to “pimp” and this contestant ends up winning, making American Idol less a show where the viewers pick the winner and more a show where the judges and producers get the viewers to vote for who they like. Borrrrrrring.

So, here at, we have a solution. Help us by voting for the worst that American Idol has to offer. That’s right, vote for the bad contestants. … Why bother voting for someone talented when this show can be so much more fun to watch? Scott Savol outlasting Carrie Underwood or Bo Bice? Now that’s good TV!

Right now, the site is pimping Scott Savol, encouraging people to vote for him. And either the world is going completely insane, or their campaign is working.
