Ben Mills : X Factor Isn’t A Fix

Filed under: 2006 Contestants, Ben, General

In a post X Factor interview, Ben Mills shared his feelings as to whether he thought The X Factor 2006 was a fix. When asked if he thought it was a fix, Ben said:

“Definitely not. There wouldn’t be any reason to put an act with less votes through because it is all about who is the most popular and who will sell the most records. The show only makes sense when the strongest acts win. Plus, were it fixed, I’d still be in the final. After all, Simon had £1,000 bet on me to win!”

Ben admitted that he did “have issues” when he found out what the X Factor winners single was and said:

“when I found out that there were different versions and that they’d recorded a rockier version for me, that made it fine.”

As for whether he will be getting a recording deal, he said that Sharon has whispered some reassuring things in his ear and Ben added:

“It’s too soon to say about a record contract. It would be great. But I’ll just have to see whether anyone offers one to me. “

Filed under: 2006 Contestants, Ben

Ben Mills X FactorFor weeks the speculation has been of a Ben vs Leona final, but tonight, with the decision left in the hands of the voting public, this has been proved false. With Ben polling the lowest number of the audience’s votes, albeit by just 3%, the final of the X Factor 2006 will be between Ray and Leona.

The shock news leaves Simon Cowell certain as the winning mentor, given that the only two acts left are both under his care.

Speaking after the show, Ben said “I’m just pleased with myself, I’m proud to have got this far”.

Filed under: 2006 Contestants, Ben

Ben said before his performance of “Everything I Do”: “Last week I was really nervous waiting for the results. I feel like me and Sharon have been on such a long journey together. In a way she is like a surrogate mother to me. There have been times when I have been thinking, am I good enough to do this? I just want to get to the final, it means everything to me. I don’t know what else to say, it just means everything.”

Simon: “Ben, I think that is by far the best performance you have had in weeks. I don’t think anyone deserves to go. terrific performance.”

Louis: “You have a brilliant rock voice. You deserve to be in the final.”

Sharon: “Ben, I have to hand it to you, you chose the song and you nailed it, it was all you this week and you made the right choice.”

Ben’s second performance was of “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” and got great judges comments…
Simon: “Your best performance of the competition so far.”

Louis: “”I always thought you should be in the final of this competition, I absolutely haven’t changed my mind. You could be a major recording artist.”

Sharon: “Your voice is a great recording voice, but now I see the passion. It’s taken you this long – I could smack you – but you’re finally there.”

Ben Mills ex girlfriend, Anna Barret, apparently has her mobile phone which is loaded with steamy pictures of the X Factor star taken before they split up and whats more, she is threatening to go public with them. Ooooh er!

A source has told The Daily Star: “Ben must be a worried man, because these pictures are pure dynamite. If they are made public, Ben can kiss goodbye to fame. X Factor is a family show which likes its artists to have a wholesome image. But these pictures are pure filth.”

Ben’s scorned ex girlfriend, Anna revealed: “I have the pictures on my phone. They are hilarious and show what a t*** he is. He takes himself far too seriously and believes he is God’s gift to women. He destroyed me. I hope these pictures destroy his dream of winning.”
