‘Idol’ Cast-Off Ditches The Oil Rig

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – American Idol cast-off Michael Sarver won’t be striking oil anytime soon.

Sarver – who was eliminated from American Idol last Thursday (Mar. 26) – has no intentions of going back to his job as an oil rig worker once he gets home to Jasper, Texas.

Since his vocation is the “fifth most dangerous job in the world,” Sarver plans to play it safe and take a break from work so he can be in ship-shape for the upcoming Idol tour.

But being a roughneck never stopped him from singing before.

Sarver says he’d often hum and sing to himself on the job to stay in good spirits while doing the risky work.

His fellow rig buds didn’t get to hear his soulful vocals much, since, in his words, “An oil rig is so loud, you can’t even hear yourself think!”

Sarver says he’s received thousands of letters from oil field workers across America supporting his singing endeavors.

Idol airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays on FOX.
