Jim Verraros born 8 February 1983
James Conrad Verraros is an American singer/entertainer and native of Crystal Lake, Illinois who is most notable for being one of the top 10 finalists in the first season of American Idol, eventually won by Kelly Clarkson.
The first openly gay contestant ever to be on American Idol, Verraros quickly became a celebrity in the American gay press because of a controversy that erupted when Fox Broadcasting Company made him remove gay-friendly comments from his network-sponsored American Idol website in the summer of 2002.
Verarros released a solo album Rollercoaster in 2005, which spawned a couple of US dance hits. A second album was released late-2007.
As an actor, Verarros is a star of the 2004 gay-themed comedy Eating Out and its 2006 sequel, Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds.
