[ # ] Did Britian’s Got Talent humiliate this contestant?
July 22nd, 2010 under Reality International

Emma Amelia Pearl Czikai, 54 is suing Britain’s Got Talent saying that the show humiliated and degraded her by airing her audition. According to The Independent she is claiming discrimination because she was suffering from a health condition that affected her voice when she auditioned. The paper adds in her claims, “she suffers from fibromyalgia, a condition which causes painful swelling all over the body and extreme tiredness, as well as spondylosis in her neck. She lost a lot of weight after her mother’s death in 2006 and was recovering from an operation to remove excess skin from her arms when she went before the show’s judges in January last year. Miss Czikai said her arms were painful and swollen and she struggled to hold the microphone close to her mouth.” The case is currently in the pre-trial phase and they will decide if the case should move on. According to The Hollywood Reporter she is asking for “£300,000 for injured feelings, compensation of £1 million and loss of earnings of £1.25 million.” The trade added if she were to win the money it would go to charity.
After watching what aired on BGT, do you think that the judges and editing humiliated her or that she humiliated herself?
I personally think if you don’t feel you are 100% when you audition, that you should wait until you are. Plus I think it is no secret that when you go on any of these talent show, especially one with Simon Cowell and Piers Morgan you should expect them to make fun of you. They do it to the good contestants as well as the bad ones.
It will be interesting to see if her case is accepted and she went on to win, how it will change what we see during the audition phases on these reality shows. They could become real boring, real fast.
