Are people still gratuitously bashing Clay because they think it gives them cool cred? Wrong, they just come off like brainless sheep from 2003.

I watched last year due to one reason - Gary Busey, and became so interested that I finished the season even after he left. I also grew to respect John Rich quite a bit, as I'm not a country guy and wasn't too familiar with him.

This year I'll be watching because of Penn.
I don't know but out of these 18 "celebs" or "washed-up celebs" only the names of Arsenio Hall and Debbie Gibson really ring a bell to me, Tia Carrere need the "Wayne's World star" for me to say "Oh yeah , Tia "Schwing!" Carrere" and Clay Aiken was just a vague memory in the style " I remembered hearing that name before" but I wasn't able to associate anything to him until I wiki him.
Yikes! That last pic looks like someone stuck a wig on Golem!
Ooh dear!!
Clay Aiken looks like he has a fat suit on - Like Monica's one from Friend's.
Why does Clay Aiken look like John Cusack?
He actually looks like he's in some stage of gender reassignment hormonal therapy. Though it's difficult to guess which gender he began with.

Is it just me, or does he kind of look like Donald Trump minus 40 years??
Ew yeah he looks so gross.
