American Idol Wiki

Patricia Bell was a contestant on Season 11 of American Idol.


Patricia auditioned in Pittsburgh. She planked while her sister sang "Like We Never Loved at All" by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. Though she was not televised singing, she was shown having her own Golden Ticket along with her sister.

Although she was shown with a Golden Ticket, she was never shown in Hollywood Week. Since she was not shown singing, it is suggested that she may not have been allowed to compete.


  • She also goes by her alias "Patty the Planker"
  • She is the first American Idol contestant to receive a Golden Ticket without ever being shown singing.
