`American Idol' Winner Leaked

Ashley Wins Claims American Idol Predictor

Ashley Wins Claims American Idol Predictor

NEWCASTLE, England (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – This season of American Idol might as well be over because the winner has been leaked.

Englishman Dean “Midas” Maynard claims he’s able to predict the outcome of reality TV competitions from very early on.

He called it from the start when Leona Lewis won The X Factor and accurately predicted the Big Brother winners.

Now, he’s picked his pony for American Idol and the winner is Ashley Rodriguez, the brunette babe who auditioned in Boston.

The minute he saw Rodriguez, Maynard knew she was it. He got the same “weird, gut feeling” he had when he first saw Leona Lewis.

Maynard says Rodriguez’s looks, voice, and “absolute perfection” will secure her victory.

Though she hasn’t gotten much air time – perhaps because she’s too talented – Maynard is convinced she has it in the bag.

Only a couple other singers are a threat, though if Maynard visits the Idol set, his magic touch will bring Rodriguez extra luck.
