I've been following season two of The Glee Project, and I'm pretty sure we have an obvious winner. Why? Well, there's a couple of reasons I think this person will win, which I'll detail below.
I think the winner will be....Aylin!
Uniqueness aside, Aylin is pretty, talented and believes in herself, all of which make her a good candidate for the guest spot on Glee. While she would only be signed on for a seven episode story arc, I can see a long-term storyline being written in for Aylin. I would guess that she'd be cast as a flirty girl, possibly a bisexual one, who will come between Santana and Brittany while fighting against her conservative family's wishes.
I think Aylin's unique look and background give Aylin a major advantage over her competitors. The show already has Kevin McHale's character Artie in a wheelchair, so Ali's situation won't be completely unique. And Blake, while he's talented, doesn't have the stand-out factor that Aylin and Ali have. Plus, guys dominated the winners circle last season, so it seems natural that a female would take the prize this time.
Do I think Aylin is the right choice? Absolutely. She had the star factor right from the get-go. She has a fun personality, the drive to succeed and a unique look and story. I actually think she's been pegged as a potential winner right from the start. Others, like Lily and Shanna, never really had a chance, despite their amazing talent, because competitors like Mario, Aylin and Ali have unique stories. If the show wanted to go in a new direction (no pun intended), it'll have to go with someone with a distinguishing factor. Simply being plus-size or a country girl doesn't have that - being Muslim, in a wheelchair or blind does.
I will admit - I'll be totally surprised if Aylin doesn't win. I think Aylin will get the spot, Ali will be in second place and given a one episode spot or something, and Blake will come in third. But I could be completely wrong. We'll have to wait and see!
