Sure, there are many success stories out there for “The X Factor” like One Direction, Leona Lewis, and reigning champ Sam Bailey, who have these incredible voices that shine through and get everyone excited.
But, we are being totally honest here when we say that to us, Rylan Clark is really one of the biggest inspirations that this competition has ever seen. He’s not a guy with an outstanding singing voice, and he got by week to week based on his personality, and being someone that people could look up to at times. He proved that sometimes, there are ways to find success even if you are not the most talented out of the group, and it’s all about marketing and personality.
Rylan’s life has been totally been changed thanks to the show, and that’s why he created the video for ITV encouraging other people to try out and give the show a shot. He is now a co-host for “Celebrity Big Brother,” which he has also been a successful contestant on. Louis Walsh told him on the night of his elimination that he had a big career in television, and he was right. Heck, we don’t know how Rylan wasn’t hired last year to replace Olly Murs on “The Xtra Factor” thanks to the amount of familiarity that he had with the show’s fanbase.
New auditions are being helped later this year with the judges, which will include Simon Cowell for the first time since the days of One Direction. Cheryl Cole and possibly Olly are rumored to be joining him.
