Another American Idol With A Not So Pretty Past

Another American Idol season, another contestant's dirty past revealed. David Hernandez‚ a finalist from Glendale, Arizona, once worked as a stripper at Dick's Cabaret, appearing fully nude and giving lap dances to the club's "mostly male" clientele, the Associated Press reports. "He had the look and the type that people like, so he made pretty good money here," club manager Gordy Bryan tells the AP.

David — who never sang at the club — worked there for three years until last September. "He never renewed his licensing with the state, so he hasn't been on my roster since then," said Bryan, adding that he believes David quit to focus on Idol.

Rumors of his stripper past, along with photos of a scantily clad Hernandez working as a bartender at a gay club, first surfaced on Idol fan site VoteForTheWorst.com. Still no word on whether Hernandez will be be given the boot.

In 2003, Frenchie Davis was disqualified for appearing topless on an adult Web site. But Antonella Barba remained on the show last year even though racy photos of her hit the Internet. David is set to perform with the other male contestants on tonight's show.
