AOL entertainment and celebrity website TMZ.com claims that there is a way of predicting the contestant most likely to go home by using the popular DVR device TiVo. Many that can’t watch the show use that to record and watch later while others use it to watch the program and the rewind and watch again.
And that is apparently how the TiVo prediction works. Someone is taking the time to chart which contestant gets the most rewinds. For example, let’s say you loved David Archuleta or David Cook and you wanted to watch them again. You just back up the TiVo and hear your favorite singer as many times as you want. They are the most popular and safe.
