Katrina Darrell didn't possess the best voice of all American Idol hopefuls on last night's season eight premiere.
But the bikini-clad model did leave the best impression... on Simon Cowell and numerous male viewers at least.
"I came dressed in my bathing suit to American idol because, first of all, I figured it would set me apart from the crowd, and secondly because I heard it was a crazy audition process and I figured, well, at least I'll have a tan," Darrell said, as Fox cut to a shot of the contestant lounging poolside.
Darrell also made no secret of her desire to make out with Ryan Seacrest, who replied that a game of tonsil hockey was likely against show rules, but "the thought of it is something I'm going to hang on to."
What do you think of Katrina Darrell's bikini-based audition?
