(Newser) So You Think You Can Dance contestant No. 22036, who's widely believed to have flashed America Tuesday night, was wearing underwear, reports Lisa de Moraes. And it's easy to deduce what the Washington Post TV columnist thinks of the people who've been calling for smelling salts: "The extremely brief glimpse of the allegedly pantiless dancer's nether region attracted the attention of vagina vultures who troll TV for such footage so they can slow it down, blow it up and post the results online."

And if it was a publicity stunt, the ambiguous upskirt moment wasn't even a very good one: "Fewer than 7 million people watched the show the next night, which, while up from Tuesday's 5 million viewers, was by no means a record."
