I agree to be exposed to public ridicule

27 Jun

So one of the things you have to do before you audition for American Idol is sign a release form.  Pretty standard, right?  But when you actually read the entire thing, you get a bit more of an understanding as to why the first few episodes pan out the way they do.

Read this exerpt from the release form:

“I understand that I may reveal, and other parties may reveal, information about me that is of a personal, private,
embarrassing or unfavorable nature, which information may be factual and/or fictionalI further understand that my
appearance, depiction and/or portrayal in the Program may be disparaging, defamatory, embarrassing or of an otherwise unfavorable nature which may expose me to public ridicule, humiliation or condemnation.
I acknowledge and agree that Producer shall have the right to (a) include any or all such information and appearances, depictions or portrayals in the Program as edited by Producer in its sole discretion, and (b) broadcast and otherwise exploit the Program containing any or all such information and appearances, depictions or portrayals in any manner whatsoever in any and all media now known or hereafter devised, or for any other purpose, throughout the universe in perpetuity.”

Nice, huh?

Bring it on.
