Ian Benardo, whose audition for American Idol in 2007 was cut short when when it became obvious he had no talent whatsoever, has been spending his effort trying to get a settlement from the show. Â Benardo claims that American Idol producers told him to “gay it up for the cameras,” which he says he finds offensive now, but apparently he was all for it at the time when he thought he still had a chance at being on the show.
Benardo’s first suit was for $300 million (yes, really). Â When that failed, he sued again for only $100 million (bargain!). Â Now that the second suit has been thrown out of court, he’s going back a third timeâ€¦ and only suing for $5 million.
