"Idol" Contestant Un-Wigged!

2/28/2008 2:14 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Prior to putting on his sexy Bret Michaels™ hairpiece, "American Idol" wannabe Robbie Carrico's hairtastrophes were limited to spiky highlights.

Back in 2001, Robbie, who is this season's Timberfake, was a boybander in something called B-Factor and rocked his very own gelled locks.

Hair -- like fame -- can be a fleeting thing.

Now that the cat is out of the bag he really needs to lose that wig. There's just something weird about any man, let alone a young one with a wig on.

TMZ is too cruel. Just leave the guy alone. He obviously is self-conscious about his hair loss.

He looks better with the shorter hair. Don't he know you don't have to long hair to be a rock star?

Serioulsy you need to check your info before posting things, I went to high school with Robbie at THS in Titusville Florida and he does not wear a wig. He just straightened his hair for that night and it looks bad....come on people, it MUST be a slow news day.

People change...leave him alone. B-Factor was 10 years ago...Who here looks the same and hasn't grown up a bit since then?

I don't think he's wearing a wig, but if he were... so what? Every other girl on that stage wears a wig or has extensions, what difference does it make if a guy does it? None. Yawn.
