So do I. When I was commenting on your post before, I was going to say that just as many would try out without the show, but then I thought about this. Without the show, DCC probably wouldn't even be on the radar of many of these women.
Quoting myself...I actually DID say if the show were no more that just as many if not more would audition, so may I clarify, I'm referring to local women. I do think a lot are turned off by having to go on the show 1st (Dayton Bramhall comes to mind).
