Kris Allen by the numbers 

 1 in more than 100,000: The odds of Kris Allen winning “American Idol,” considering the amount of people who tried out.



27: The number of seconds of airtime Kris received in the first 13 episodes.



3: The number of contestants in the final 12, including Kris, who tried out with 10,000 hopefuls in Louisville, Ky.



72 percent: The percentage by which “American Idol” leads adults ages 18-49 in viewership over “Desperate Housewives,” the second most watched show.



100 million: The number of votes cast in the “American Idol” finale.



38 million: A number reported on air at least twice during Fox 16's post-“Idol” finale coverage that was said to represent the number of votes that came from AT&T in Arkansas in finale voting. A spokesman with AT&T in Arkansas told the Times “AT&T does not divulge that kind of information,” and Fox 16 later issued a correction, but not before the number reached every corner of the Internet.



$10,000: The amount you could've pocketed following a Kris Allen win if you'd placed a $1,000 bet on him on April 27, less than a month before he won, according to the odds posted on Bookmaker.com.
