Last week on The Glee Project, Charlie Lubeck's autism got him in trouble, again, and his talent rescued him, again. Naya Rivera, who plays the super sexy Santana on Glee, chose him as the winner of the sexuality homework assignment.
As he says in this video, that meant a lot to him:
What it means to me to win the sexuality assignment is that maybe I can be sexy. Maybe I can own this weird quirky nerd thing that I've got going on and make it work for me.
That's smart, but it wasn't smart for him to get so full of himself that he flirted with Aylin while recording his solo. Or to decide that he needed to take over and direct the music video. His focus on achieving his goals once again makes him forget to stay in the role is expected to play,
Fortunately, he gave an impressive performance when his failures to follow social rules meant that he had to perform for Ryan Murphy and risk being off the show for the second week in a row. And fortunately, he and Aylin have decided to cool it a little in a preview of tonight's episode that you can click here to watch.
