X-Factor is back on our screens. It is a guilty pleasure of mine. I'm not one to watch soaps or even many TV programmes. Am more of a movie person. But X-Factor I quite like.
I like watching the different acts, figuring out who I like and who and I don't. Watching them progress, or crumble, during the weeks. What I don't do, and for the life of me I can't understand why others do, is invest my emotions into it.
At the end of the day it is just a reality show, with people you don't know, and won't care about three months after the show is over.
What I hate is not the X-Factor itself, but how people get so invested into it. It's a competition, some will lose, one will win. It's that simple. There will always be the people in there put in for entertainment only, this year it's Johnny Robinson and would also have been Goldie, if she hadn't figured out that she was a fun factor only.
Every single year people get irate about the fun factor people staying in and others who can sing getting voted out. But in the end, the best people are usually in the final, so who bloody cares? People get so mad about people getting voted off, with cries of "I'm never watching again, it's a farce!" But of course, they do still watch.
Get a life, realise it is only a reality programme, and enjoy it for what it is. Rant (mini) over.
