David Hernandez of ‘American Idol’ danced for dudes

March 4th, 2008 // 72 Comments

David Hernandez, a Top 24 contest on American Idol, has a secret nude past. Turns out he was a male stripper which may put his Idol future in jeopardy, according to the AP:

The 24-year-old finalist from Glendale, Ariz., once worked as a stripper at Dick’s Cabaret, appearing fully nude and performing lap dances for the club’s “mostly male” clientele, club manager Gordy Bryan said Monday.
“He had the look and the type that people like, so he made pretty good money here,” Bryan said.

Dick’s Cabaret? Wow, what an amazingly subtle name. You might as well call it Penis Bar. Wait, that’s perfect. Jesus, it’s practically fool-proof. Somebody front me a ton of cash to open a male strip club. I can’t promise I won’t embezzle the funds, drink all the liquor profits and “accidentally” stock it with female strippers. So, really, you can’t lose.

  1. Ted from LA

    I’m shocked.

  2. Beautiful Deaf Girl

    He’s a dog. Why would anyone, male or female, want him to strip for them. He is even going to be uglier when he grows up.

  3. meh

    My theory that all male contestants on this show are gay seems to be pretty right on. I win! WOOHOO!

  4. Onoodle

    I saw his profile on millionaire&celeb site millionairefriends.com last week. Is he single now? Just curious.

  5. Pixie

    His face looks too sweet and boyish for a stripper, the visuals alone make me feel like a sex offender.

  6. mercedes von uppity

    There’s a local joint where I live called “Home Erectus”. Talk about subtle!

  7. Sambo the Ass Pirate

    faggots on American Idol? color me shocked!

  8. Danny Noriega

    I just knew that David was a pole smoker. Now he can smoke my pole.

    HEY FISH-ASS…

    Why don’t you rip this guy a new asshole like you do to all the WOMEN you scewer you low life female hating bastrd?

  10. I for one am OUTRAGED that your PAST can put your American Idol FUTURE in jeopardy!!!!!!!

    I’m also outraged that for a full minute I couldn’t remember how to spell jeopardy, and had to scroll back up to the post..

  11. I’d call him a pussy, but that would be a misnomer at best.

  12. The Veggi Whore

    there is NO such thing as a sexy male stripper. I wish to hellfire that there were…… but they are ALL gay and wear those intolerable florescent or animal print thongs..

    Not that I’ve been to one ;)

  13. absolute2

    He is a cuttie. I saw him on “W e a l t h y R o m a n c e. c o m” last week. Is he single now? Just curious.

  14. #10 – It’s called splel chekc. Use it.

  15. mimi

    # 15 – It’s called leaving out an “A” you sshole.

  16. Auntie Kryst

    I thought all fuck ups on American Idol eventually wind up working at strip clubs after their careers fail, not start at one.

  17. Spell Checker

    “scewer”?

  18. mike

    Hey VeggiWhore, I am straight and a sexy male stripper.. My thong is just blue. Do you want me to come dance for you??

  19. Hey mimi, I pologize for h ving insulted your intelligence. Ple se don’t “scewer” me. M ny th nks.

    The ‘finishing’ move in david’s act involved a lucky male patron, a quart of petroleum lubricant, and one large hen’s egg.

  21. For once I can’t write anything harsh. I stripped once, mostly for guys, because I needed money for school. So it’d be the pot calling the kettle black. Granted, it was for lunch money and I was in the 4th grade and the audience was mostly relatives, but still, I think I know how David feels.

  22. His head looks like something you’d scrape your shit covered shoes on.

    see? It’s funny because it’s true.

  23. Elexis

    His name was Caiden. And he wasn’t gay, he slept with a lot of chicks that he met there. I’m surprised no one said anything sooner.

  24. havoc

    Yeah, he does look like a pillow biter……

    Or shit covered dick . . . . oh, yes I d’ id.

  27. D. Richards (Surgeon.)

    #25 — ‘Elexis?’ You’re not fooling me, ya’ tranny.

  28. #24 – He’s a full service station… he uses his scrubberhead to clean the salad before he tosses it.

    #25 – Dressing like chicks don’t make ‘em chicks…

  31. p0nk

    Never thought I’d see the day. #32′s comment shills for a disguised-purpose site just like all the other spammers.

  32. #33 – Hi p0nk! It was a take on the comment above it. J-O-K-E. Nice to see you’re doing well and remain unbitter. Have a great day.

  33. @ 33 Disguised porpoise? Why do you always have to bring up Wally????

  34. bongo the smiling stoned dog

    why so bitter, He-Man?

  35. iHATEDemo-Commies

    Hehhe, never saw that coming. Total FAG.

  36. Let’s name the myriad things that are bitter… coffee grains… chinese melon… drink mix aditives… brocolli rabe… I’m drawing a blank on the rest… anyone?

  37. LadyJane

    Hahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
    TSFSRT Bongo.

  38. That Weird Little Son of a Bitch from the Convenience Store

    other things that are bitter? When I worked on a farm we used to pick cranberries and cranberries are awful. They add a ton of sugar to them to make juice, and even the juice is bitter. Well, they’re more sour. Okay, then I guess I don’t know anything else that is bitter. Except for narcissists…they can be bitter. Or maybe embittered.

    You’d think he’d taste like marshmallows, not bitters.

  41. TWLSOBFTCS

    chagrin! double post.

  42. bongo the smiling stoned dog

    You guys better stop or else he’ll think it’s all about him again.

  43. This thread now reeks of the emotional rantings of human hubris, hauntingly helped by hapless hoardes of haughty hotheads. pZEROnk, I miss pooping in your breakfast cereal. I also miss playing “find that neck” while you sleep.

    Don’t judge me.

  44. ponk is a fucking moron

    stop! you’ll make He-Man mad.

  45. jrz

    Jeeze Louise, #47, don’t be coy, tell us how you really feel about p0nk? Good lord……….
