`Idol's' Big Mike Is A Big Softy
American Idol's Big Mike may be hefty, but the man also has a seriously sensitive side.
Friday, May 14, 2010 17:08 GMTLOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) American Idol cast-off Michael Lynche may be buff and brawny, but inside, hes one big softy.
Lynche aka Big Mike was eliminated from Idol this past Wednesday (May 12) but is happy he got to show multiple sides of himself during his run.
He believes that because hes a Gemini, he has an extremist personality with lots and lots of different sides.
For example, even though hes 6-foot-1, 300 pounds, and can bench press 505 pounds, hes still a sensitive teddy bear, especially around his five-month-old baby girl, Laila.
Meanwhile, Big Mike also has a serious romantic side, which is why he chose to perform so many love songs on the Idol stage.
Lynche feels theres no emotion more real or raw than being in love and says those types of ditties just speak to his soul.
