It really stands out how TPTB are trying to make this happen when both parties couldn't be less interested.So you think this is sort of a "bearding" situation?
Love was in the air on “American Idol” Wednesday night.
This Skolton thing is one of the stranger stunts they've tried to pull. maybe he's having some sort of age-related crisis or whatever. Josiah Leming | Jason Castro | Casey Abrams Jessica Sanchez | Elise Testone | Phillip Phillips | Heejun Han Sam Woolf | Majesty York | Alex Preston | Malaya Watson Cole Horibe | Eliana Girard Paul Karmiryan | Makenzie Dustman Colton definitely seems gay so maybe they are looking for a beard for him. Remember, they did the same thing with Haley and Casey last year, Steven even asked him if he was in love with her or some nonsense- she was dating the italian guy all along and she and Casey had no romantic connection at all, they just made it up for some unknown reason.
It is interesting that it started after Skylar landed in the B3. Either way though, the fact that so many people question it shows that he's not exactly the archetypal masculine figure, so the point still stands.
Maybe there is something to the theory that they're using the "ship" to try to soften her up. if that was their goal then they should've probably told skylar to shut up about her boyfriend so that it would be more believable and nigel wouldn't look so childish . Colton and Skylar are both shooting for that Bible Belt demographic, and perhaps sticking them in this situation is a way of trying to placate that audience. No Colton is not the epitome of masculinity, but IMO that's a good thing.
In today's society, the so-called most desirable males are often womanizers who party, drink, and curse.
