The girl who showed up at an audition for American Idol wearing a bikini and a big attitude was booted from the FOX reality show.
“Bikini Girl” tells Extra: “There were a lot of jealous haters out there.”
After being kicked off last night’s American Idol, “Bikini girl” Katrina Darrell speculated as to why she was kicked to the curb.
Bikini Girl says, “I think there were a lot of jealous haters out there and a lot of them were female, so it made it very difficult to work with them. And also I was very tired."
Never getting along with judge Kara DioGuardi, Darrell reveals, “I think she had it out for me in the beginning which was sad because we could’ve been really good friends.”
As for why Darrell wore a swimsuit to her first AI audition, she explains, “It was 110 degrees in Phoenix and I heard that people wait 15 hours and don’t even get to audition so I figured, what the heck. At least I'll be tan."
The sun-damaged “Bikini Girl” says of her moniker, “I think it’s a cute gimmick. I don’t plan on having that be my title forever.”
When asked about her future plans, she natters, “I want to get a record label. Work on an album and go on tour.” Although music is her number one passion, she reveals, “I would love to do Victoria Secret runway [shows] and have big wings.” Really.
Darrell and judge Ryan Seacrest shared some intimate moments and she admits, “There was a crush. He has fiercely green eyes." So was Seacrest a good kisser? She responds, "He was good. He was scared…I think it was because of the show. He's not allowed to kiss back."
Sending a message to the AI judges, Darrell declares, “Bring me back. I want one of the three wild cards!”
“Extra’s” interview with Katrina Darrell airs tomorrow.
