'Idol' Wannabe

Goes Topless

And Strips, Too?

3/4/2008 3:03 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Every "American Idol" seems to have a skin scandal, and this year's involves pretty guy David Hernandez, a gay strip club, and a big trove of half-nude pics of David tending bar.

David Hernandez
Hernandez worked as a bartender at a gay club and the saucy snaps of that gig have landed on VoteForTheWorst.com. And today, the manager of a strip club called Dick's Cabaret in Phoenix. tells the AP that Hernandez performed fully nude and did lap dances for the mostly male clientele at Dick's -- and "made good money" to boot.

No word if he'll face the fate of Season Three's Frenchie Davis. FOX tells TMZ, "We don't comment on the personal lives of the show participants."

GROW THE F*&^% UP AMERICA!!! This is a SINGING competition! Not, "who has the the cleanest past and least scandalous personality" competition!! For this to be the land of the free it is sure as hell hard to do anything here with "Freedom Shackles" on you!! American is so f-ed up...royally...and it saddens my heart and sickens my stomach to be associated with such closed-minded, stuck up people.

Why is TMZ going after the American Idol contestants so hard? Strange that both shows air on FOX and you're not even giving these kids a chance before attacking them. Why not wait until they are bonified celebs then you can hide in the bushes and follow them around. As for Votefortheworst, what a mean-spirited jealous bunch of morons, playing around with other people's futures.

Now if only some Full Frontal pictures will surface. I think I like him more now. Now if only Idol would let it be known all the gay boys they have on the show.

You know, every week millions of us sit down in front of the tv to be entertained by this show. We get to see really bad auditions, spectacular performances by very talented people and we wait with baited breath to see who stays and who goes. if you live in the US you vote for the ones you like and if you live elsewhere you just watch and enjoy. If you don't like American Idol then don't watch but no one needs to spoil it for others with crap like Votefortheworst. After they leave the show and then get into a major scandal like Jessica Sierra then yeah, they deserve bad press but I am sick of people who try to spoil it for those of us who do like it.

Not suprising. David bragged about being a gymyst and raved about his cartwheels.. not that that there is anything wrong with a man doing cartwheels

With the way today's celebrities are behaving it wouldn't surprise me if they let this stripper slide into the number one spot. It would be wrong because America should be represented with morally upstanding citizens.

What a way to represent America with sleezy Idols!

Just a correction - Frenchie Davis was a contestant on season 2, not season 3.
