American Idol Season 5 Contestant Zach Travis – Guess What He’s Doing Now…

Remember Zach Travis, the cross-dressing contestant from Season 5? I do. When I re-capped his audition, I kinda blamed his Mom for enabling his fame-whorish ways. It was pretty obvious the producers let him through so Simon could mock the way he looked. Mom did not seem to be hip to that. Or really care.

Check out his audition:

It’s three years later and Zach has a newly butch look, (well, relatively speaking) a new name, and a new career.

He’s in Southern California making movies. But he’s working in the San Fernando Valley, rather than Hollywood–if you catch my drift. If you don’t, his new name is Kirk Cummings. Get it now? Heh.

His mom, by the way, is very proud of her boy. She wants to attend the adult entertainment awards with him. Surprised? Not Moi.

Zach/Kirk is also continuing to pursue a career as a singer. He’s recorded a song. You can check out the “singing”, plus some photos of Kirk, after the jump…

In this video, the thanks his “fans” for his “career”:
