** Gifty Louise was seen as a favourite in the 2016 series, when in Halloween week, she was derided for singing a Fifth Harmony song that was mostly obscure for the second time in the series after doing so week 1 without trouble, but with some question from the judges, as it was widely seen as a front for Simon to promote his X Factor USA act, who have had a couple of major UK hits as well, one of which Gifty did in bootcamp. Still, no one expected her to be eliminated for the sake of Four of Diamonds, who were in their second sing off, and fans expressed outrage, with many wanting to boycott the show.

In reality, Gifty never placed in the top six of the table in any of her 4 weeks despite her clear fanbase.

** 2011 provided Misha B. This isn't to say that she was a bad singer, but her mentor Kelly Rowland clearly favored her over her other acts. It got worse after she lost public support following accusations of bullying and wound up in the bottom two on multiple occaisions, but remained in the competition until the final few weeks; when the judges acknowledged that even if Misha got to the final, she didn't have the support of the fans & wouldn't win, so voted her out.

** 2016 brought in Emily as many viewers seemed to have the impression that she is Simon's favorite. Not only that, she was criticised for lack of emotions or energy in her performance. Eventually, she was eliminated in the semi-final, finishing fourth when all except Simon voted to send Matt (who was more well-liked by fans than her) to the final.

** Ryan Lawrie survived the Bottom 3 ''three'' times and the fourth time he survived elimination was when he was in the bottom two. He was finally eliminated when in the bottom two against another notable Elimination Houdini from that season, [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy Honey G]], who is widely hated by most viewers for being overly gimmicky and [[SmallNameBigEgo arrogant]], yet somehow managed to escape the Bottom 3 ''every single week'' up to that point.

She eventually got eliminated a week after Ryan's elimination.

** Ryan Lawrie from the 2016 series just couldn't catch a break. Even if he wasn't the strongest when it came to vocals, he still enjoyed himself onstage and made genuine effort to improve as an artist and continue in the competition, he was still constantly criticized by both the judges (especially Louis) and the viewers, which resulted in him being among the least voted five times, three of which he had to be saved by the lifeline vote.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: A lot of GenreSavvy viewers during the 2016 series were sure the producers would find a way to have [[OfficialCouple Ryan Lawrie and Emily Middlemas]] in the sing-off together during the later stages of the competition for RuleOfDrama. While Ryan ''did'' get eliminated in Week 7, it wasn't against Emily like so many were expecting, but rather Honey G.
