WHAT HAPPENED Courteney Cox Arquette look-alike Lisa Shannon bit at exec producer Simon Cowell's offer to let America marry her off with a potential $1 million dowry.

WHY WE'RE SPLIT Lisa was sort of whiny, her two yenta BFFs were sort of naggy, and ratings were sort of saggy. On the flip side, at press time, America had rallied in chat rooms to vote through some serious losers. ''No, I cannot marry Robert [if he went the distance],'' Shannon says of the country's sadistic favorite. ''So if Robert is the last man standing, and that's a huge possibility, then I don't even know he would propose. It's obvious there is nothing between the two of us.''

LASTING CONTRIBUTION TO THE GENRE America is a cruel matchmaker.
