'The person that we ended up picking is not who you would expect,' 'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy gushes on the outcome of the reality show.
Since "The Glee Project" will produce a new "Glee" star, fans may have been questioning who will win the competition. In a recent interview, the musical drama series' creator Ryan Murphy has warned that the result may not meet people's expectations.
"The person that we ended up picking is not who you would expect, but is so talented that it's really inspired us as writers," the 45-year-old, who also serves as a judge on the reality show, revealed. He explained that "the person who wins is not necessarily the best singer or the best dancer," but "it's the person who can serve 'Glee' best."
Whoever comes out as the champion, he/she will show up early in the third season of the FOX hit series. "Our first episode back [on Glee] is always auditions," Murphy hinted at the moment which would mark a debut for the new character.
"The Glee Project" features 12 aspiring singers competing for a guest-starring role on "Glee". In each episode, their skills in front of the camera as well as in the recording studio are tested. Aired every Sunday at 9 P.M. (EST) on Oxygen, the show has eliminated two contestants, Bryce and Ellis.
"Glee", meanwhile, will return on FOX on Tuesday, September 20.
