Call it a ploy for another 15 minutes. Call it a further bid to prove his heterosexuality. Call it crazy, or whatever else you want, but the fact is that booted Idol Sanjaya Malkar may be heading up his greatest American swindle yet by trying out for I Love New York 2. ILoveNewYork2.com now features a profile purportedly created by Sanjaya. Included are some shots, a video of him playing with Sour Patch Kids (is that a comment on New York’s personality?) and a brief message that includes the line, "…When I saw the opportunity to get jiggy with New York, I saw a way to even top my pony-hawk!!" It’s now the No. 2 highest-ranked profile — it could be No. 1 within hours.
Of course, it’s not likely that Sanjaya could make the show — at 17, he’s too young, for one thing (contestants must be at least 21). Additionally, there’s no evidence that the profile isn’t the work of an outside prankster — there are no exclusive images and the aforementioned video has been available on YouTube for over a month. Still, can you imagine the sparks that would fly if he did make it on the show? We’d have another 12 Pack in our hands, if you get my drift. Wink, wink…awkward smile.
