Let’s play a little game. In order to be eligible to play, you MUST NOT be a current viewer of American Idol. If you are familiar with any of the contestants on season 7, consider yourself disqualified. This game is actually more of an experiment in cultural image identification. Consider these top 12 contestants on American Idol. Two of them are Mormon. Can you guess which ones?
Judging solely by these profile pictures, identify the one male and the one female contestant that you think is Mormon. Write your guess in the comments. Follow this format:
Mormon Girl: #?
Mormon Boy: #?
After having posted your guess,
click the button below to reveal the true answer.
So how did you do? What was it about the person you chose that made you think they were Mormon?
What was it about others that made you think they were not? Are you surprised at the answer?
If you were able to accurately guess one or more, does this tell us anything about Mormon culture? Go ahead and add additional comments if you feel like weighing in on any of these issues.
