Lauren Murray has revealed she thinks the Six Chair Challenge stage of 'The X Factor' should be scrapped as she compared it to 'The Hunger Games'
Lauren Murray thinks the Six Chair Challenge stage of 'The X Factor' should be scrapped.
The 25-year-old hopeful secured a place at Rita Ora's Judges' Houses during the "brutal" stage of the competition in last night's (04.10.15) episode but has admitted she wants to see it dropped from the series in future.
She said: "For me, that was the worst part of 'The X Factor' so far and I think they should get rid of it next year. Unless they get bonuses for giving people heart attacks! They should get rid of it..."
The brunette beauty also compared the Six Chair Challenge to 'The Hunger Games' franchise, in which characters are forced to fight to the death.
She told Digital Spy: "It was just so brutal. It was literally The Hunger Games.
"I never in my life want to see six white chairs again. Ever. It was just killer. It's so, so intense. I thought at one point I was going to be sick. I really did. I knew, because I had a bit of a dip at Boot Camp, I knew if I didn't bring it at Six Chairs I'd be going home."
Meanwhile, Lauren has insisted she and the rest of the girls category are thrilled to have Rita as their mentor, despite Monica Michael previously admitting she would've preferred to have had Simon Cowell.
She added: "All the girls are really, really happy with her. We love her. [She's] really genuine, really humble - she's fighting for the girls. I definitely think the winner is in the girls' category.
"And I think she thinks that, and girl power!"
