    6. 6. Sounds fishy It seems that there was something fishy going on with the voting in Oprah’s Next TV Star competition. The second place woman, Dr.Phyllis, received 300,000 votes in a span of 20 minutes, moving her into 1st place, and calling into question a conspiracy against Zach Anner. Geek-o-system seemed to have found a change in the woman’s voting code that differed from the other contestants. As was tested, the woman would receive 2 votes for every 1 vote that Zach got. The code was changed back shortly after. © 2010 Sullivan Higdon & Sink. All rights reserved.
