Upon seeing this photo of the 2005 American Idol contestants, I immediately thought that the dude with the long hair in front (Bo Bice) and the girl wearing orange (Vonzell Solomon) were a couple. It’s one thing when all the contestants are being friendly with each other. Putting an arm on someone’s shoulder or knee. That’s nice friendly fake stuff. “Look at us, we are so nice.” I can see her putting her hand all nice and friendly on his knee. But then Bo putting his hand on top of hers is like some sort of confirmation of affection for one another.
Yes, I am reading into this too much. But this was just my first thought. I haven’t watched the show at all, it was just my first impression of this photo. It’s funny how fake affection can be transformed into confirmed affection when two people show the same exact friendly affection—like holding hands.
