The psyche tests were only given to the top 50 last year so I don't think it is a big deal to do the tests again in L.A. They have alternates in case a problem with someone's past arises, if you know what I mean. I think they want to possibly keep people around in the city they auditioned in for interviews and city-specific video. It will be interesting to see the new format and the "regional" finalists. I have a friend that wants me to audition with him for this year's show so who knows? Maybe I will find out first hand. At least if we make it they won't have to do another test on me, although I have went a little nuts over the last year since the show.
