So, I watched the Teen Choice awards with my kids. I knew the winners knew ahead of time, which is no big deal, guess it's a way to make sure they show up. What I found odd was the disclaimer at the end, basically it said teens voted for the winners, but then the producers could pick their own winner from the top 4 vote getters. I wonder how many "winners" got less teen votes, than the winner the teens voted for?

Guess you can't trust any of these results, that you see on these shows....:)

They run a similar disclaimer at the end of American Idol. Sometimes I think they should do the same on our political elections as well.

I think that was the original intent of the electoral college.

I always think of the line in Tropic Thunder when Ben Stiller says to one of the guys, there maybe a teen choice award in this for you, you know get slimed and everything.
