Bikini Boy: Worst American Idol Contestant Of All Time

By Robert Paul Reyes

American Idol has introduced many outstanding talents like Fantasia, Adam Lambert, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, and Carrie Underwood.

But the venerable franchise has also inflicted on the American public such weirdos like William Hung, Bikini Girl, and now Bikini Boy.

Some fans of American Idol complain that wacky contestants like General Platt detract from the genuine talent. But my view is that you have to take the bitter with the sweet, and that the talentless contestants are an integral part of the appeal of the show.

Bikini Girl was a big hit with the male viewers last season, but a guy in a bikini isn`t going to be popular with the guys or the girls.

American Idol producers should exercise a little bit more restraint, Bikini Boy`s creepiness factor outweighs any entertainment value.
