Too bad for the big lad. He was very likeable. I can't slam him for trying to better himself. Wishing him good fortune.

I have to say that is pretty lame. NO ONE ever discloses their arrest records.. it makes them not get the job.

However, Jimmy will now just sign the kid on his own ;)

It wasn't the arrest records. It was FOUR oustanding warrants! Who wants to potentially enter into a contract with someone that doesn't accept responsibility for their actions?

Don't feel sorry for that loser one bit. In fact, I said all along that we would see him end up on the wrong side of the law somewhere down the road.

Turns out I was already correct on that one.

Reed Grimm should have been saved. Not this pathetic POS.

I see you're kind of slow, so I'll try to explain it using small words.

Outstanding warrants are not "in the past". One of the warrants is for something that occurred just last year.

He needs ot be an adult, take responsibilty for his actions and THEN try to "better himself".

I realize many kids these days are raised to believe they have no accountability. Glad one organization (AI) is telling them "No", since their mommies & daddies didn't.

Because he can sing he's done more and is more of a contributor to society than someone who works on a computer? LOL! You're hilarious!

So, the "Real Housewives of Anywhere" are better than you, too, by that logic.(As lame as your most recent post was, I would bet even YOU have more to offer this world than those bimbos.)

He is a loser. Thought he could ignore his responsibilities. I'm sure there are plenty of thugs in prison who can sing better than I can, dance better than I can and yeah, LIFT MORE WEIGHTS than I can. LOL!! Doesn't make them better than me.

Pathetic. Getting on TV is the end all, be all of "making it" according to some morons. Ya know, that's what drives some serial killers, arsonists and bomb makers...wanting to be in the news. According to people such as you, they have made something with their lives, because they got on TV. LOL!!!

If they are outstanding warrants, they are not "in the past", no matter when they occurred. And yeah, if it's a parking ticket, that's not "in the past" until it's taken care of.

Simple fact is, this loser had FOUR. Even one would be bad. But FOUR?! No excuse for that, as much as you may try to make them.

Now if you REALLY want reality TV, instead of all this semi-fake stuff they keep putting on, the cops should show up during a broadcast and perp walk him off to the slammer.

Cancel the show...put something 'good' on instead. Though I don't know what that would be...the dumbing-down of America has been so successful, an actual 'good' show would be cancelled so more THIS dreck can replace it. It is cheaper to produce, and Lord knows, America will watch it.
