Homework Help: English

Posted by Henry2 on Tuesday, February 21, 2012 at 3:10am.

I included my doubts using question marks. I need to rephrase "hopefuls", "disposable" and the last sentence. I really hope you can help me.

1) Craig Jones is not only an office worker, but he is also a talented singer who dreams of becoming a star.
2) He has already won a local talent contest and today he is auditioning for the UK’s biggest TV talent contest. He has been waiting outside for two hours with thousands of hopefuls (synonym?).
3) For this reason, talent shows can have a bad influence on young people.
As a matter of fact, X Factor winners still haven’t had experience of the music business when they become famous and sign a contract.
4) Critics believe that talent shows are simply big advertisements which create publicity for the winning act and song. Though the song goes to Number 1, the winner can’t often repeat the success of his first hit from the show.
5) For the producers, that doesn’t matter because people haven’t lost interest in the show’s format yet, and the next disposable star is already in a queue outside a TV studio somewhere. (I need to rephrase this last sentence).
