Get to Know an American Idol Contestant: Haley Scarnato

by at . Comments

She's no Antonella Barba.

Granted, Haley Scarnato has been receiving a lot of attention recently for her looks - but there's one difference between this American Idol contestant and the one that was best known for her sex photos: Haley can sing.

Believing He Can Fly

Well enough, in fact, to have cracked at least the top nine on the show. Let's get to know her a bit better, courtest of this People magazine profile ...

Age: 24
Relationship Status: Engaged to Bobby Krudwig, a sales executive
Pre-Idol: Wedding singer in her native San Antonio
Fame Factor: Although she thinks it's "cute" that she has a fan club called "Haley's Comet," Scarnato doesn't want to know much more than that.

"I completely stay away from the Internet and gossip â€" it's scary," she says. "I got recognized recently, which was weird. They said something about my mole!"

* The Hollywood Gossip note: Come on, Haley, you're not curious to read about The Bachelor, Andy Baldwin?

Guest Mentor She's Psyched to Meet: "Martina McBride," says the country fan. "I love her."
What's On Her iPod? "I love Elvis, which is shocking to people for some reason."
On Being Judged: "Some comments are pretty harsh. Ryan Seacrest lightens the mood. It's nice to have him on that big stage next to you."

And with that, Scarnato left to stick pins in her voodoo doll of Sanjaya Malakar. No, we're just kidding.
