Reality TV Quitters
Mario Vasquez, "American Idol"
Midway through the fourth season of "Idol," fan favorite Mario Vasquez decided to drop out of the singing competition saying, "I had to focus on some personal areas in my life with the little bit of privacy that I have." Many speculated that he left the show thinking he could become a star without it. Carrie Underwood went on to win the show that season.
