Trump concedes that Debbie Gibson “is a great person, but she has some likes and dislikes. I was surprised by it.” However, there was one contestant that surprised him. “Clay Aiken. He is tough I thought he would be not so tough. I thought that he would be just a nice guy with a good voice, but he is nasty.”
