'Idol' Outcast Thia and Naima 'Intimidated' by Female Audience

It becomes more and more likely that "" this season has a slimmer chance to crown a female contestant. As apparent from this week's double elimination of Thia Megia and Naima Adedapo, contestants begin to question the kind of audience who watch the show and cast their votes. Thia and Naima believe they are dominated by young girls voting for the guys.

"We sort of figured since there were more females watching this show the votes were going to be more for the guys," Megia said during a conference call with reporters. However, it doesn't mean that Megia overlooks the guys' talent. She called them "incredible" but the female contestants were "a bit intimidated by all the girls watching the show and knowing that their votes are going to be going for guys."

In line with Megia's comments, Adedapo laid out the facts, saying "When it comes down to it, the reality is that more than 50 percent of the audience is little teenage girls. When they get a crush ...then we're done." In defense of her elimination, the former toilet cleaner said, "Sometimes people just didn't know where to place me."

The last three seasons of "Idol" indeed were won by guys. In exception of Casey Abrams, who was saved by the judges last week, the tenth season has axed Ashthon Jones and Karen Rodriguez in addition to Megia and Adedapo.
