`Teflon Tim': Best Worst `Idol' Ever

Much like Superman, American Idol's Tim Urban seems indestructible as this year's `Vote For The Worst' pick.

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – American Idol’s one- note crooner Tim Urban is the best worst contestant the show has ever had.

Just ask Dave Della Terza, who runs votefortheworst.com, which urges viewers to vote for the worst Idol contenders each season.

Della Terza and his anti-Idol cronies have been voting for Urban for eight weeks straight – their longest-running VFTW pick ever to avoid elimination.

They once backed season six gem Sanjaya Malakar but Teflon Tim, as he’s called, takes the cake because he simply doesn’t give a damn.

Whenever the judges bash him, he just smiles, which to Della Terza is as good as a “big ‘f you.’”

Moreover, Urban has made a boring season of Idol watchable. When he goes, the show will suck again.

Since next week is a double elimination, VFTW is “mobilizing forces” to save Urban. Tactics include posting pictures of the heartthrob in his best light: Shirtless, holding cute babies, and feeding animals.
