At least he’ll have more time to spend with Lauren Conrad now.

But he will need to be far away from best friend and cuddling buddy, Blake Lewis.

With these two eliminated, the competition is down to its final four. Lewis is among them. So are three ladies: Melinda Doolittle, Laskisa Jones and Jordin Sparks (who The Hollywood Gossip staff is grateful to all for voting for).

Despite the fact that Antonella Barba was in the audience Tuesday night, she isn’t being invited back onto the stage. Sorry, fellas.

So, who will follow in the footsteps of Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood? Our money is on Sparks. Literally.

Until the winner is accounted, though, we’ll just be thankful we aren’t engaged to Tameka Foster. Sounds like that would suck.
