KFC Presses Its Cluck With Sanjaya

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Looks like KFC is pressing its “cluck” with American Idol finalist Sanjaya Malakar.

A few weeks ago, the fast food chain asked Sanjaya to wear his hair in a “bowl cut” on the show in order to promote their “KFC Famous Bowls.”

In exchange for free bowls for the rest of his life, and a charitable donation to be made in his name to Colonel’s Scholars, which provides college scholarships to students in need.

Sanjaya chickened out of accepting the offer, so now KFC is upping the ante by offering to feather his nest egg with $5,000 in cash and a starring role in an upcoming commercial.

So far, Sanjaya is keeping mum about any future hairstyles, including a “bowl cut.”
