Mystery Man in 'Idol' Ad -- Kristofferson's Spawn

1/27/2010 5:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

One of the fake wannabes posing in this "They All Start Somewhere" ad for "American Idol" actually started off somewhere pretty significant ... the loins of legendary musician Kris Kristofferson.



TMZ has learned 26-year-old Jesse Kristofferson posed for the advertisement last year -- and according to Jesse's rep, Jeff Ballard, the people at "Idol" have no idea the ad features the son of a famous singer/songwriter.

Well now they know ... and knowing is half the battle.

Taking a wild guess here, but considering those Kristofferson's genes, the kid probably has more talent than all of the contestants combined. Probably a smart one to forgo the whole American Idol process.

Actually, this kid Jesse is a no-talent loser trying to live off his dad's money an "fame."

He has no song-writing or singing ability at all and can't even pay his own rent.

You are sorely wrong! He is very talented, especially at wrestling and fitness. Besides, he is very kind and down to earth. Never flaunts his wealth or famous father. Not a loser at all. I've known him for over ten years, do know what I'm talking about. We shall see when "Bloodline" drops if he ought to keep pursuing acting... if not, he's got much more going for himself. Has done a lot of modelling and is extremely good looking. And yes he pays his own rent! Lives in fairly modest apartments, not in a mansion. Heather doesn't have a clue what she's writing here.
