Crystal’s reason for wanting off the show? Apparently the 24 year-old singer-songwriter from Elliston, Ohio told Ryan she couldn’t handle the competition, and that she hated the attention, at one point even saying to Ryan, “What’s the point?”
In addition to that, the single mother of one was also feeling very homesick and wanted to return to Ohio to be with her family.
Ryan was however able to convince Crystal to stay by telling her that being on “Idol” was like starting a business, and reminding her that a million dollar recording contract was at stake. Ryan then added that she could use her money to do some amazing things. “You can buy your mom a house,” said Ryan to Crystal.
So Crystal remains in the competition, for now at least.
