Bikini Girl has Competition in Casey Carlson

It typically takes a few weeks, sometimes months, before “American Idol” has its first naughty-picture scandal of the season. Two seasons ago, Antonella Barba made it all the way to the top 24 before being eliminated for her subpar singing just a few weeks after a series of suggestive pictures of her made headlines.

And now, just two episodes in, Casey Carlson has set some kind of “Idol” record for being, um, exposed as a bikini model for a Web site called Campus Girls USA. The 20-year-old singer, who was seen on the Wednesday night episode of the show, took a detour to the Virgin Islands before going to Los Angeles for the Hollywood round to shoot a series of sexy shots for a site that promotes “82 Gorgeous College Students.”
