"Idol" Contestant Wigs Out

2/27/2008 1:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

After once being linked to Britney Spears, "American Idol" contestant Robbie Carrico picked up one of the popwreck's habits -- a love for wigs!
Robbie Carrico

TMZ has learned the 26-year-old long-haired wannabe's mane is actually a wig and it's got "Idol" execs flipping out. Sources tell us Robbie never talks about his matted down piece and that makes production members feel like it's the blonde elephant in the room. It seems Simon was right last night -- Robbie is a fake!

Where's Sanjaya's pony-hawk or Kat McPhee's extensions when you need them?!

A rep for "Idol" would not comment.

i think it's rude for ryan seacrest to not acknowledge simon cowell as one of the judges everytime he does the closing credits . it is very childish of him. if he has some issues with simon it would be appropriate to handle it after the show and not infront of the people.

What's the big deal? If the guy ever breaks out in the music industry he's gonna become fake anyway like all the others. Hair extensions, fake teeth, lipo, body part implants, nose job, contact lenses, etc. etc. etc.

This guy is a total fake. He was in a boy band 6 years ago, I watched the video yesterday with him prancing around and a very short haircut. I guess that didn't work out for him so now he is trying it as a rocker. If he were a true rocker his hair would be his and long, not a wig. That is probably why he wears all those bandanas. You can tell it is a wig and there is no hair showing its roots or coming out of his head, I hope he gets voted off, not because of the wig but because he isn't any good. Bo Bice and Daughtry were the real deal.

If a guy's gonna wear a wig, shouldn't it at least look better than a $3.00 Wal-Mart bath rug? Just wondering.

I have to say that I suspected it was a wig. I immediately thought to myself that he was trying to be the next Bo Bice. Quite honestly, I think he'd be more attractive without the wig.

I cant believe that so many people watch this CRAP of a show-- They must be brain-dead!!!1 Simon Cowell is about the biggest Jerk in T.V and hsi sidekicks are right behind him.. The people they allow to participate , most are loosers before they start- They are there solely to be ridicules by those "briliant judges"--- There were afew talented people who performed on the show- Most of the Male singers sing like GIRLS-- they have become girly typw performers- and should be dressing like girls to- I havent seen a REAL MALE singer since this show began????

I think he will be voted off this week anyway for lack of talent.

Hmmmm, so you think American Idol people just figured this out? Not likely TMZeros, how many pictures have been taken of these people? I would venture to say IF he is wearing a wig, it would have been figured out DAY 1 - REPORT THAT TMZeros
