Semi-finals

Because of the highly unbalanced finals in Season 3 where female contestants took a clear supermajority (8 to 4) of the Final 12, rules were changed to prevent a similar incident from happening again.


This season also implemented new rules for the final portion of the contest. Instead of competing in semifinal heats in which the top vote-getters are promoted to the final round, 24 semifinalists were named -- 12 men and 12 women, who competed separately, with 2 of each gender being voted off each week until 12 finalists were left.
