The X Factor 2016

Postby stereoman » Sat Aug 27, 2016 5:14 pm

I'm sure those acts being given preferential treatment are being primed and ready but hey, the charade and shenanigans have been going on for over a decade so nothing new.

Winning manager odds from William Hill:

Nicole Scherzinger (Boys) 9/4
Simon Cowell (Girls) 9/4
Sharon Osbourne (Overs) 5/2
Louis Walsh (Groups) 7/2

I'd imagine it'll be another white male that Simon has chosen to form in his image, in the vain attempt that he can finally make one as popular (or at the very least, one that the Americans will take to) if not more so than say, Leona Lewis.

Kneejerk outright winner odds from William Hill after the first show...

Image

Caitlyn Vanbeck is only 16 years old.

Oh um...Simon Cowell would love to get his hands on her (he proclaimed her as the new Kelly Clarkson!) but he doesn't have much clue with what to do with the likes of Alexandra Burke and Louisa Johnson (he got lucky with Leona Lewis to an extent!) so he'd struggle like billy-o yet again with Caitlyn if she's the winner.

This isn't Caitlyn's first go around on 'TXF' either...

Olivia Garcia is a massive lay at those odds of 9/1 as rumours in my home town, where she lives, that she doesn't get through boot camp, don't know if there is any truth in these tho

No truth in the rumours, she sails through boot camp and then is given the final slot in the 6 chair challenge and gets a unanimous standing ovation, and gets through to judges houses.

WHOOPS!! Apparently the results of who are through to the judges houses have already leaked.

The Sun ain't telling though. Expect bookies to react quickly whether suspending betting or cutting odds for various folks though.

Insta-odds from William Hill after week five:

I think bookies may have taken the spoilers to heart as Matt Terry's odds shrinks like someone does indeed know that he's 'the chosen one' (REALLY!?) and Caitlyn Vanbeck's odds drifts out like a really bad smell.

Those spoilers were completely right:

Image

Fury on social media that Honey G (but not Bratavio aka Cosmic Riot!) got through to the final twelve but it's always been a showcase of those most likely to win and the joke acts (the likes of Jedward, Tesco Mary, Wagner, Chris Maloney and now two in the form of Bratavio and Honey G) that everybody can't believe survived until the final six or so.

There is supposedly a campaign in the works to try and make Honey G the winner but the producers will always conveniently nip it in the bud. The joke acts never win...I'm not even counting Leon Jackson beating Rhydian.

Expect Bratavio and Honey G to provide consternation for surviving a few more weeks than they should do (maybe four or five weeks at the most) but the final seems assuredly going to be Matt Terry and two other acts (take your pick).
