When Oprah Winfrey launched her Your OWN Show contest to become a reality star on her new network, the clear frontrunner was Zach Anner, a HIGHlarious wheelchair-bound man suffering from cerebral palsy.
Even celebs were getting behind his "travel show for people who never thought they could travel."
But on Tuesday, votes for unsuspecting competitor Dr. Phyllis shot through the roof! And then her numbers suspiciously went down from 1,923 votes a minute to a mere 3.
According to a spokesperson for OWN:
"The online voting rules for the ‘Your OWN Show’ video submission competition were carefully crafted to be fair to everyone. Any allegations of impropriety will be investigated and the appropriate actions taken to keep the process unbiased."
By Wednesday, Anner was back in the lead by more than 400,000!
