Buzz In: What Reality Show Winners Have You Disagreed With?

Ranting time: I'm still a bit sore about the final decision made on last night's Top Chef finale: my personal favorite contestant, Kevin, did not win. I understand that the judges make their choices fairly and based on this week's competition, but that doesn't make me feel any less outraged. Plus, I feel like we were supposed to be buying into this Voltaggio-brother feud all season, and the whole thing seemed kinda gimmicky to me.

This isn't the first time I've disagreed with the winner of a reality show (just last month I wasn't jazzed at Irina winning over Carol Hannah on Project Runway), but it's probably the most bummed I've been. Other surprise defeats I've never really simmered down about? Kris Allen beating Adam Lambert on last season of American Idol and waaay back when, when Tina beat Colby on the second season of Survivor. Which reality show winners have you disagreed with?

So sad Kevin didn't win, of course they had to put it down to the brothers. My brother and I yelled and turned off the show immediately after he lost haha

mostly just ANTM: -naima over kahlen -nicole over nic -danielle over joni those 3 runners up were my favs!

i think that with America's Next Top Model -they ALWAYS choose the wrong girl. the runner up is the one that should win each season, but i guess there's kind of a method to their madness. what big designer would want ANTM's winner to be their muse - right?

- Danielle over Jodi on ANTM (really Tyra!?) - Ilan winning Top Chef over anyone, even Marcel.

Since it just happened yesterday and I'm still not over it-Top Chef has been the most disappointing of all realities tv series for me! Last season-Hosea won?! Over Carla and Stefan? I almost didn't come back this season but the quality of the chefs were so good. Season 4: I really liked Stephanie, but thought Richard should have won. It's disappointing that the judges don't consider the entire season. I don't mind Michael being the top 3, but I definitely think Bryan should have won. He's the most experienced and sophisticated chef there. The judges say the producers don't influence them-well I wish they did, then they'd pick the right people! lol.

I have never agreed with a single Project Runway winner. That's why I can no longer bear to watch.

The last two finals of Top Chef have been disappointing. Last season I would have been fine with Stefan or Carla and stupid Hosea won instead. This season I wanted Kevin or Bryan and then Michael won. Boo!

Pretty much every single ANTM winner. This past cycle, I'm pretty sure, is the only time my fav of the final two was declared the winner. And of course the Adam Lambert scandal of 2009. Survivor Season 1 probably as well. Richard was kind of a dick.

Ugh, stupid Voltaggio brothers. I disagree with Tattoo Voltaggio winning and I also disagree with Irena winning Project Runway. I have a hard time stomaching the "meanies" winning.

I was SO disappointed that Kevin didn't win! I couldn't believe it - I liked the brothers but Kevin's simple soul food and his take on food giving comfort was the best description.

When Nicole won over Nik on America's Next Top Model, I was ticked! Nik rocked every cover shoot.
