David Hernandez of ‘American Idol’ danced for dudes

The Superficial / March 4, 2008

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.
