Sadly, several of the young people competing are simply annoying, and a lot of work must be done before they'd make a decent Glee character. Even one that is two dimensional and in just for a joke. Among the contestants that are barely tolerable are the very short Matheus, despite Darren Criss taking a liking to him in episode one, child-like Ellis, and overly flirty Emily. Mostly, the biggest screw up all three commit is laying it on way too thick. We get it. You are playing up something about yourself. You don't need to do it with every single line. They are more one note characters than fully fleshed out individuals.
While a chariacture may work for seven episodes, with many of the main cast leaving, it seems a more appropriate goal would be to find someone who will stay on longer than that. Seven episodes are a lot of time to grow attached. Only a few of the kids even have the potential to eventually be series regulars. Is this seriously the best they can do out of 40,000 auditions?
Bryce is absolutely the right choice to send home. There is no room for diva-like attitude on Glee behind the scenes, especially from a newbie.
Also, if there is any doubt about what a nice guy series creator Ryan Murphy is, his focus on the positive during the final cuts will dispel that. This man is one positive dude.
It remains to be seen whether this series is even worth watching. If you choose to, The Glee Project airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on Oxygen.
