Kristy Lee Cook (no relation to contender David Cook) isn't afraid to admit that she's a little country. The 24-year-old sweetheart's favorite quote is "Rope it, ride it, wrestle it, cowgirl it," according to the show's Web site. Cook approaches every performance with this attitude, which sometimes earnes her praise but twice resulted in her being placed in the bottom three. Despite this, the Selma, Ore., native remains optimistic, saying on her "American Idol" page, "I know that in my heart I was born to sing and I think I have enough to give to be a great singer!"
