Professor Fabienne Darling-Wolf is quoted in the Variety article ‘America’s Got Talent’ Has A Secret: Oddballs Welcome:
“I think perhaps what distinguished AGT from some of the other reality shows is the extent to which it democratizes the experience of appearing on TV and potentially winning,” said Fabienne Darling-Wolf, an associate professor at Philadelphia’s Temple University. “Because the show does not focus on a specific talent, like ‘American Idol’ or ‘America’s Next Top Model,’ or require you to do something painful most viewers would not want to do, like ‘Big Brother’ or ‘Survivor,’ and their many spin-offs, anyone can find something to relate to.”
