ControversyEdit

Fan voting influenceEdit

The fan voting for Master P. and Jerry Rice received some controversy during this season. Master P. received very low points from the judges during his time on the show and the fans and judges were disappointed that he outlasted Tatum O'Neil and Giselle Fernandez. Towards the end of the competition, Jerry Rice received negative feedback from the judges and scores that were much lower than his competitors, but he advanced to the finals. Even though Rice improved during the finals, some viewers and critics were disappointed with Rice getting into the finals over Lisa Rinna and 2nd place over Stacy Keibler.
