Overwhelmed by the stress and pressure of being on ‘American Idol,’ contestant Crystal Bowersox threatened to walk off the show. ‘Idol’ host Ryan Seacrest stepped in and had a quick heart-to-heart with her in the show’s parking lot, TMZ reports.
Sources claim Bowersox told him she couldn’t handle the competition and didn’t like all the media attention and threatened to move back to Ohio to be with her family.
Luckily, Seacrest convinced the ‘Idol’ hopeful to stick it out. He pushed the fact that if she won she’d get a recording contract and become a millionaire. Guess that was enough to make her stay.
According to TMZ, Seacrest told her, “The greatest thing I ever did was make enough money so I could buy my mom a house. You can buy your mom a house.”
