Whitaker who was surprised and shocked to be voted off Idol last Thursday (Feb. 28) revealed during her video montage on Wednesday (Feb. 27) her habit of making sure none of her food touches on her plate before she eats.
But while her pet peeve is a bit strange, the 17-year-old singer says her food separation habit isnt as bad as it seems.
Whitaker explains, On the Idol video I looked really OCD about it, but I swear its not that bad! Its just a weird pet peeve of mine. I used to eat each food on my plate with a different fork when I was little. At least I dont do that anymore!
Although none of Whitakers fellow Idol contestants shared her habit, many of the idols told her they had friends and family who were the same way about their food, which Whitaker finds comforting.
She laughs, Im happy to know Im not the only one!
American Idol airs Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays on FOX.
