Does The Aussie X-Factor Trans Contestant Get Hated On As Much As Chaz Bono?

Everyone knows that X-Factor and American Idol tend to pick mediocre singers who make good “reality” television (Sanjaya anyone?). But while 35-year-old transman Paige Elliot Phoenix doesn’t sing the world’s greatest version of INXS’s “Never Tear Us Apart,” he at least shares his genuine desire to live and love as authentically as possible with Australia’s X-Factor audience—good job, Paige! We wonder if he gets as much crap as Chaz Bono has for wanting to dance with the stars.
