(CBS Local) What's portrayed on live television isn't always 100% accurate. When American Idol's Colton Dixon stopped by CBS Local we had to ask him what fans of the show would be shocked to learn.
He stressed that there's a lot of work that goes into the show. "I know I didn't realize it before I was on the show. I had watched since Season 1. I figured, 'Oh man, it looks so glamorous. They're in a mansion!' Which, we sleep in a mansion, that's about it," he said. "Good luck to next year's contestants, that's all I'm going to say."
As with reality TV, sometimes the cameras don't portray the person in the best light. Colton said this wasn't the case for him. Find out what he had to say and more secrets here.
