DUNANVILLE, Texas (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – American Idol eliminee Tim Urban may be smiling all the way to the bank.

Urban, who was voted off Idol this past Wednesday (Apr. 21), was known for his constant ear-to-ear grin, even when the judges were badly bashing him.

But those pearly whites could make the happy-go-lucky singer tons of money someday.

Urban – or Teflon Tim, as he’s called – says it’d be “fun and entertaining” to be the spokesman for a toothpaste brand like Colgate.

He’s totally open to the gig and, in his words, “Would love to do it at this point.”

Urban says he’s always been pretty positive, so he didn’t let much get to him on Idol.

He was, however, “sad” to be this year’s pick on votefortheworst.com, although some may argue that the popular website is what kept him in the competition this long.

Idol airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays on FOX.
