Episode Vulnerability

Mad World is a song by the British band, Tears for Fears. It was written by Roland Orzabal and sung by bassist Curt Smith, as the band's third single. It was then covered by Michael Andrews and Gary Jules to use in the movie Donnie Darko (this version was used for The Glee Project). It was performed in the Music Video in the third episode of the first season of The Glee Project, Vulnerability.

Matheus was the homework assignment winner of this episode, so he had a bigger part in the group number.

Vulnerability BoardsEdit

Each contender wore a sandwich board in the video with the trait they had named as their greated insecurity written on it. This is what each contender's board said:

  • Alex : Gay - He is homosexual.
  • Cameron : Misunderstood - He feels his appearance fails to portray who he is.
  • Damian : Numb - He has difficulty feeling strong emotions and doesn't feel like he will ever be able to truly love someone.
  • Emily : Used - She was used for sexual favors and filmed by music producers.
  • Hannah: Fat - She is overweight.
  • Lindsay : Fake - She often pretends to be happy when she's not because she was sexually, verbally and physically abused by her boyfriend. (Though this was cut from the episode.)
  • Marissa : Anorexic (originally Flawed) - She used to suffer from anorexia.
  • Matheus : Small - He is unusually short for a man of his age.
  • McKynleigh : Black Or White? - She is biracial because her father is black and her mother is white.
  • Samuel : Rejected- He has been rejected a lot of times (love, career, etc.). He always gets close to what he wants but never gets it.
