Omg   hilarious RT : Just took online quiz called “Which former American Idol (cont)

Thanks, Clay, for the fun tweet!!!


Wednesday brought a lot of promotion for The Runner Up, the docu-series about Clay Aiken and his Congressional run in 2014.  The show will be broadcast on the Esquire Network in April.

On Wednesday, posted a short video-clip of the show. Although it is only a few seconds long, it is great to see.  I have tried to embed the video but have been unsuccessful so I will do the next best thing.  I will post a link to the video-clip and then add some screen caps from the show (thank you to DisplacedNCgirl for the screen caps).  You can see the video at ESQUIRE

I am looking forward to this exciting program!!

  1. I giggled like a school girl when I saw Clay’s tweet!!! That was sooo funny! He sure can be a riot! Loved the articles on the website and can’t WAIT for this series to begin on April 15th!!!

  2. I can't wait to see this series. I love that Clay is back in the news.I really like the picture for the series but I am NOT a fan of the bubble gum. I absolutely love the picture I think he looks amazing, BUT I'm afraid he will be getting plenty of criticism for the gum. I really do love the picture though.

    • The bubble gum picture is the same one that was used for Robert Redford in the movie, The Candidate. I am sure they are trying to tie it together and it is not at all serious.

      • Ohhhhh. I just hate when people attack him for least now I get it. Thanks for explaining the gum! He is so handsome.

  3. Clay’s campaign certainly did reveal the serious, intellectual, and meticulous side of his distinctive personality. He is a chameleon flashing a kaleidoscope of colors according to his purposes with a creativity that has continually caught me off-guard and to which there appears to be no end to its depths. Clay’s finest work will always be his next shocking endeavor!

  4. I like the poster tie in but they pasted Clay's head on possibly Robert Redford's body. Those are not Clay's hands.

  5. those arent clays hands on that poster those hands might belong to actor robert redferd ilove clays tweet so amazingley funny what a riot
