Does The X Factor Judge The Audience Too?

This is absolutely ridiculous.

A variety of fans of the reality series X Factor are furious because the show's producers apparently only pick attractive people to sit in the front, behind the judges and in the view of the camera - despite their booking priority tickets and being in the front of the line!

Fans write:

"It's an absolute joke! I went yesterday, they pick attractive people to sit at the front, regardless of priority (ticketing) or where they are in the queue. I was so gutted when I was in my seat, I had tears in my eyes."

"LG security said it was pretty people and that it was all run by X Factor so they couldn't stop it."

"Just got pulled out the queue because we're young and really, really ridiculously good looking so we get to sit by the judges."

Shameful! As if anyone's looking at the people in the audience, let alone judging them for their looks!

Thoughts??

    This is nothing new. Canadian Idol does the same thing. A friend of mine was selected to sit behind the judges when he went.

    And of course people are looking at the audience and judging them. You know you do too.



  2. 2

    Ha!! I had tears in my eyes!
    Well have another donut you fat fugly bitch!!

    Why you getting all pissy about this? You do the same, all the time and the sad part is that you are not even attractive, just a big pink gay man!

    this isn't news! They do this everywhere! Of course the producers want attractive people in camera view! F*cktard!

    They did the same thing at a Stevie Nicks taping for her lastest concert dvd. They hired models to sit in the front row and they didn't even know who Stevie Nicks was! Sucks for the real fans who stood in line for hours to get good seats and then are told they have to move back because they're ugly!

    That must be what Tyra Banks does too. I always wondered why the audience members in the Tyra Bank show always looked so good.

    I think it's stupid that only attractive people sit in the front but hey that's life! We get judged based on appearances wherever we go so why would you think it's different on tv? That being said, to the person who wrote "have another donought" LOL LOL LOL LOL. Omg that was too funny. LOL. Good one!

    Yea this is not news or a "secret" They do this on every tv show with a live audience. I've been to tapings of Deal or No Deal, Jimmy Kimmel, Last Call, etc. and this was done at every show. They pick the most attractive people to be shown. At Deal or No Deal its in front of the models and under the board with all the amounts. And if Perez is as big a "celebrity" as he thinks he is he would already know this. These people need to get over it and stop crying about it it's television wat do you expect. you still get to watch the show they just dont want you on camera its no big deal. and yes they do hire people to attend these tapings as well. I was employed by a company that did this wen i was in college. Dancing with the stars and deal or no deal are the most common shows that hired us.

    They also do it on the Today show concert crowds. It's Hollywood baby, if you aren't hot…step aside. (Not saying it's right, just how it is, has been & always will be.)



  10. 10

    :):):)but then on the bright side
    at least you will know if your hot or not
    from people that never met you :)
    and not people you know who would lie to you :)
    because you are their friend
    i would buy tickets just to see what they think of me :)

    This is no different than chic clubs admitting only good looking and well dressed people. The demographic that shows like American Idol pander to are better left at home, because they certainly don't want those kind of crazy fans to show up on TV. If I were one of producers of the X-Factor I would do everything I could to lose those rabid idiots. If it means hurting some feelings to do it, so be it. The slightest bit of encouragement to those people gets the wrong kind of attention, why you'd have all kinds of scrapsbooks, and quilts showing up. I think they want their fans to be sexier, although they can't say that because then they would be inudated with x rated fanfic.



  12. 12

    LOL at what the last person wrote. They obviously think they are the cats milk.



  13. 13

    bullshit, the camera never shows the front row, its always people who are higher up that get filmed, the only time the camera does point at the front row is if is simon talking to his gf.



  14. 14

    Something similar happened to be at BET Studios. I am white, but I won a contest to see Mariah perform in 2008. And I was FIRST in line for the event, but when we got inside, they had only black people at the front of the crowd and on stage with Mariah. All the white people were put to the back.



  15. 15

    If Mario were to be in the audience of X Factor, he would be placed as far back as one could possibly get. You're a fat ugly tard, Mario!

    you do stuff very similar perez.

    in this case x factor is praising more attractive people over every one else not caring about what they feel like
    and you praise lady gaga over christina aguilera so fucking cruelly not giving a fuck about anyone else but yourself and lady gaga.
    you do that with everyone.
    go to college bro. your getting to old for this.

    Re: sansan – tyra isnt like that.
    tyra is a stronger activist for redefining what the word beautiful is. and how it comes in all shapes, sizes and colors. and helps people refill shattered confidence.

    you obviously dont watch her show enough.



  20. 20

    Re: dannytheminion – thats because BET is the racist channel. im sorry that happened kiddo.
    i think they forget mariah is half white too.

    it sickens me to see how segregation in all forms still exists today. all different forms of it. race, skin color, weight, apperance
    and how it always has to be separated.
    we are all gods children.
    and built to be equal

    Re: BritneyLand – God that is so sad. You would actually buy tickets just to see whether random strangers think you are hot? How desperately insecure are you? Sad.



  22. 22

    BULLSHIT!!! this is such a lie…..there are no attractive people in the U.K.



  23. 23

    Ha! Ha! Are you whining because they put you in the back?



  24. 24

    Uhmm, Perez dahling.. I am a professional audience member! I've been on so many shows, I can't even remember them all. But one UNIVERSAL fact remains the same: they will ALWAYS put the best dressed, sexiest, hyper fans in areas that are shown on camera! It's just a given at ALL of the shows I've taped (ranging from new shows, to "reality" shows, to tv shows) that they're going to put the sexiest of sexy in first, and fill out the audience from there. I can show up 3hrs before call-time, and still be put somewhere off camera - it doesn't matter what I wear. Which suits me just fine as it's a double-edged sword to be put on camera; it's a ding against you as show producers don't want the same people in the background all the time. :)



  25. 25

    its tv idiot, ugly people are rarely seen on tv



  26. 26

    dude every show does that… thy pay attractive people to wit in the audience



  27. 27

    "As if anyone's looking at the people in the audience, let alone judging them for their looks!"
    WTH? OF COURSE everyone judges for their looks! That's how life is!!



  28. 28

    It is a fact that people look at the audience and judge then. We judge each other all the time!



  29. 29

    almost every show does this people just dont realize it! I went to American Idol & they seperate everyone into different lines and u can totally tell that they're separated by age and looks. I got picked for the front row so i cant complain :) but when i went to the mtv movie awards i got put in the 6th row…. tv is all about looks, get over it



  30. 30

    That's my kinda thinking. How else are you going to judge people?



  31. 31

    To be fair, no one wants to see a fat chick but then again anyone who watches x factor is probably fat anyway - it's a catch 22.

    The Judge.



  32. 32

    I look at the people on my Judge shows. Everyone does and we all make comments on how silly they are.



  33. 33

    Perez, i absolutely disagree with you, as I know this is true, you think it's ridiculous, but it's nothing new, X Factor does do this.

    Re: dannytheminion – Ouch… White people get called racist and no other race ever does. Sorry you had that happen to you.



  35. 35

    I can completely back this story up.
    In february i went to see the auditions for Britains Got Talent in Birmingham after I recieved free tickets online.
    I got to the queue at about half 1 in the afternoon and waited till 7pm i was about 4th in the queue, when the doors opened the staff picked up all the slutty/slag girls that had nothing on and men that resembled 'the situation' I queued up to not even be in a great spot (you can guess - i was in the nose bleeds)



  36. 36

    When we were visting Hollywood Blvd.,my husband and I were asked to sit in the audience of a talk show. We were seated right in front. And..they have you clap really fast so it sounds like there are more people in the audience. They also had a comedian warm up the audience so they are smiling when the host comes onstage.



  37. 37

    They certainly didn't do this at the Dutch X Factor.



  38. 38

    Re: james89 – Generalise much?

    i went to this showing that they are talking about in birmingham. its true they did it, me and my friends were picked out of the que and given priority seating cause we are "young and attractive" and thats who their target audience likes to see. im not complaining cause we got GREAT seats :) but must suck for everyone else!
    its not right that people are judged on their looks but for anyone to say they dont judge others is a lie cause you make judgements every day.



  39. 39

    America's best dance crew does it to. The Lasr Comic standing is the worst of all. They sit all the white people on one side of the studio and that's where all the lights are to be filmed. On the other side they sit all the people of color where there is dim light that won't be filmed. Oh yeah, and mtv movie awards picks all the blonde people to go in the front in the pit area.

    If this is true, and it certainly wouldn't surprise me if it was, then it's deplorable, and I won't watch, as it's nothing but spin. I guess the little people have no place?

    Phony phucks. Is there no line anymore that people won't cross for a buck?



  42. 42

    I was at that show…..and me and my friends got picked out of the queue. It is quite unfair but people are only complaining because it wasn't them, they wouldn't of cared otherwise, just like I don't. One more thing…..our seats were AWESOME haha



  43. 43

    This is believable.fugly people never get picked on this show.but see my theory-they use the term x factor 2 cover all bases-u havnt got the x factor in other words ur a fugly bastard go back to ur inbred town
