I guarantee you he thinks the AGT audition process is only what you see on TV. He walks on in front of the celebrity judges, does his stupid act, and everyone goes wild. He doesn't think about or even know about the thousands of people who apply and don't even get a second thought.Chances are he's not going to make it to the main stage. He'll do his thing in front of the first set of judges and the only way he'd get through to the celebrity judges is if they think it would be funny for him to get slapped down by Simon assuming he's still on that gig.
After all The Jolly Cat, with his terrible act, managed to make to the main stage and was buzzed off in seconds.
Russell doesn't think any of his lawsuits are long shots. He thinks victory is a guarantee every single time. It's only the fat, fake, bias judges who cause him to lose. Russell makes such a spectacle out of himself is because he wants everyone to see him and discover how right he is. The reason he's harped on representations and discrimination for so long are because he legitimately believes the law is on his side and that he can use the law to get what he wants, in his case fame and sex. I think the only reason he doesn't appeal is because he doesn't know how to.I think its, yes, a narc injury but I think the fact that he sued Kiwi Farms and basically everybody just laughed at him, I think that one cut him deep. I think he could tell himself like "Oh Taylor Swifts just being a cunt" but when he has like a couple thousand people laughing at him and telling him, no, actually, youre the tool, that actually pierces his ego. He could get a billion bullshit suits laughed out of court and tell himself they were longshot lawsuits but I think he genuinely felt like he had a shot against Null and Kiwifarms.
