Darwin Misha Reedy
This enigmatic blonde has the distinction of being rejected by Simon Cowell on two different shows. First, she freaked him out during her Season 6 “Idol” audition, during which she revealed that she’d written a novella based on the cantankerous judge. Her practically note-less rendition of the Pussycat Dolls song “Don’t Cha” stunned Cowell, who said simply, “That was, for me sitting here, appalling.” Undeterred, Reedy shows up four years later on the set of Cowell’s new show “The X Factor” for another serving of rejection. -Jeff Royer
