We didn't forget! Elliott's video quiz

175243__yamin_lThey say that pride goeth before a fall, and, boy, did I learn that the hard way this afternoon. Only a few days ago I promised all of you that I’d nail People.com’s Elliott Yamin video quiz, and for two questions anyway, it looked like I was totally on target. Elliott’s dream duet partner? Too easy. Favorite snack food? A breeze, yo. But then, like Superman taking a bite of a peanut butter-and-Kryptonite sandwich, I faltered on E-Double’s coveted superpower question, and again on the subject of Elliott’s first album purchase. (Who knew?)

Not surprisingly, my 3-out-of-5 score has sent me down the shame spiral, with only one hope of recovery. So if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to take a page from today’s Starting Over, climb inside a giant refrigerator box and, using a collection of black and red Sharpies, "draw my feelings" on the walls of my cardboard prison:

”Who am I?”
”Am I a good person?”
”I’m afraid to feel my feelings.”
”Funyuns.”
Brenna Gethers.”
”Why?”

Once I’ve looked my demons in the eyes, I’m going to tear down those walls, and listen to ”A Song For You.”

  • Brian

    He was idol way to long!!

  • BB

    I got 2 out of 3. I had never even heard of those snack foods. :(
    P.S. Why are ads allowed on here? (in the postings…)

  • Gretchen Weiners

    Haha oh Michael… I got 3/5 as well and am thoroughly disappointed in myself. How cute was his fidgeting in the video though?

  • jason

    eat my dust people, 4 out of 5. kat 2/5 (??) taylor 3 out of 4.

  • Elle

    Slezak….stop. Honey, you are just torturing yourself. Elliott will forgive you. But, Starting Over is just not a good show. Please stop watching it. Look at you in your box with your pens. Go watch Fight Club or Reservoir Dogs. I know you won’t do this but I couldn’t just ignore this cry for help.

  • mrcr

    I got 2/5. I share your pain.

  • Jen

    4 out of 5! Woot!

  • anisia

    3/5 pa-the-tic! I one-upped you with 4/5. Who owns you? Me! The Lil’ Debbies tripped me up. You got that but missed the rest?

  • Marilyn

    I miss Elliott so much! He definitely has the best voice and is the most lovable, humble, most deserving for American Idol in all 5 seasons!!! I think Popwatch should dedicate some kind of ode to Elliott to tide us over until the tour – what do you think Michael? Elliott is so great that I’m crossing the border (I’m Canadian) to go to the Idols tour in Tacoma. I can’t even believe I’m doing that but who can help it?
    PS – To my shame I only got 2/5 and I thought I knew about all things Elliott :(

  • Sarah

    I feel your pain. I got 3/5, and that’s because I heard one of the answers somewhere, so technically, I didn’t even get that.

  • KateyKat

    This was hilarious! I got 3 out 5 the first time, but, boy, did I ace the 2nd, 4th, and 5th times I took the quiz. Ironically, I missed one answer on the 3rd try. Oh, well!

  • jenn

    I got 4 out of 5, but only out of luck. Hadn’t heart of Strawberry Shortcake rolls, so I guessed something that obscure must be it, and picked flying as the superpower because, come on, that’s what EVERYONE says.
    More Elliott, PLEASE! It’s been weeks since the show and I still can’t get enough.

    ELLIOTT! ELLIOTT! ELLIOTT!
    We miss You!
