Cast of LOSERS and the biggest loser is Trump! How does anyone watch this garbage? On a show where Joan Rivers is a "winner", you know the viewers are pathetic rejects that have no lives.

Hope Clay does well. Enjoyed him on Idol and it's almost ten years since he was on that show. Want to learn what he's been doing lately. Heard he's very funny.

I enjoyed Clay when he was on Idol and think he could do well. I hope he pulls off the win this time since he should have won on Idol, but didn't.
