Agreed, he's the only one I would possibly tolerate beating out Juliet.
Thats why I don't like the whole team thing. Imo he was easily the second best on the show. Juliet better win over Tony that guy bugs for some reason.
The team thing worked until the two of them, but yeah that's the downfall of being Ceelo and knowing the best of the best people to pick, you're stuck in the end and someone great has to lose out just because.
And I agree, Tony has always struck me as kind of just a creepy older dude who's trying to cling on to the dream at like 40. I just don't like him. He better not beat out Juliet, I'll be so pissed because you know it's just cause the voters are mostly girls.
