Audition[edit | edit source]
Ben auditioned in Philadelphia. He came in wearing a black cloak to hide his costume. When he took it off, it was revealed he was wearing a Slave Leia costume. Paula Abdul was taken aback by his chest hair so she and Randy suggested that he would come back after he shaved it all off.
Later, Ben returned with all his chest hair shaved off. He started to sing "Don't Cha" by The Pussycat Dolls until Simon stopped him two seconds, sick of his gimmick, thereby eliminating him from the competition.
