Another contestant to face disqualification in season two was, duh duh duh, Corey Clark, after he basically - allegedly - beat up his sister. He was swiftly removed from the show for failing to disclose the misdemeanours, but that wasn't the last we'd hear of controversial Corey as he reared his Sideshow Bob curls two years later to claim he and Paula Abdul had hooked up during his stint on the show. "There was love there. It was a relationship for like three, four months. She told me she loved me. I told her I love her. Do I still love her? No. I've moved on. Do I love her as a person? Yes. Do I care about her? Yes," he told ABC's Primetime in 2005.
