American Idol has started off with a new crop of aspiring singing sensations, but there was a familiar site this week — just with a twist.
Idol hopeful Ty Hemmerling went on stage sporting a Speedo type “man-kini,” causing all the judges to flee the stage in fright.
Bikini Boy — yes, he has a nickname already — followed in the footsteps of season eight’s Bikini Girl Katrina Darrell and RadarOnline.com caught up with her to find out what she thinks about his appearance.
“Hot outfit,” Bikini Girl said in the exclusive interview, but she wasn’t exactly a fan, and added this zinger: “not so hot on the singing.” Maybe Bikini Girl should have replaced Paula as a judge?
Bikini Girl was happy that she still has Idol fame, and thanked Bikini Boy for his help. “I still love you and think it’s cool that you’re repping me.”
Her notorious fued with Idol Judge Kara DioGuardi continues to this day, and Bikini Girl still doesn’t have any love for her. “Why are you still hating?” she asked. “Get over it already.”
Katrina told RadarOnline.com that she is working with an award winning director on a potential movie role, but that she still longs to be the next America Idol and wishes Ellen was her judge. “I know you would have picked me,” she said without losing hope. “Oh well, next year!”
