What do you guys think – who is your front runner going into the first live week?

*There was wide speculation that Mike’s dad had given a news story that he was in the top 24, thus getting him disqualified, but it looks by all accounts like he’s in!

**Tim was the only person not featured with a “you’re in/you’re out” moment on last night’s show, leading many who saw the widely circulated list of Top 24 Spoilers to wonder if he was a replacement last minute for the highly touted Chris Golightly – unsure if he was the DQ, or if he had to drop out for some other reason!
