American Idol's David Hernandez: Gay Stripper
Mainstream media has finally picked up on the story circulating around the web for days - one of the 8 remaining male contestants on "American Idol" was a gay stripper. Will that endanger David's chances on FOX's (supposedly) squeaky clean show?
FOX never mentioned the fact that Hernandez worked as a stripper for 3 years, appearing fully nude and doing lap dances for male clientèle. The manager of "Dick's Cabaret" however confirmed on Monday David was employed at the Glendale club until September 30 (after he was cast on "American Idol.")
Obviously, there is nothing wrong with being a gay stripper. Unfortunately, a certain segment of the reality show's target audience may disagree and Hernandez may lose some votes despite his recent strong performance of The Temptations' "Papa Was a Rolling Stone."
