Granted, not all these guys are exactly hotties. Some are hotter than others (*cough* Paul Kim *cough*). But AI is a fascinating writer's tool. Take 24 people and put them in a similar, very stressful situation. How do they react? Film these people crossing a long room to find out whether they've made it onto the show. How are they different from the others? Film them going up to the room in the elevator, and coming back down afterward. Heck, close them in the elevator with the person they just beat. How far can their nerves be stretched before the facade of politeness they've been taught begins to break down? And then there's the music. Love. IT!!!
