1158. While a Contestant on Season Eight of the American Idol Production, Plaintiff

Joyner observed that ENTERPRISE-DEFENDANTS, rather than conducting a bona fide contest, were

actively favoring certain Contestants as lead-runners for promotion and advancement. The

ENTERPRISE-DEFENDANTS’ “preferred” contestants received increased support staff (such as hair,

make-up and wardrobe) from the producers and their “background stories” were structured with

greater care, creating an environment in which ENTERPRISE-DEFENDANTS’ favoritism of certain

Contestants was intended to influence the outcome of the Contest or a portion thereof. As

Plaintiff Joyner explained in July 2009:

“The producers know who they want and they slant it to reflect that. They fix
it in a way that makes you surprised but it’s still manipulated.”

“What I mean is that people think AI is a talent show. No. It’s a reality show
with writers!! We're all actors. All these shows have writers that guide the
public opinion.” [CDC_003618]
