In this week's episode of Mero in the WildThe Kid Mero heads to the regional American Idol tryouts to gauge the talent.

Who knows which of these future hopefuls is the next Kelly Clarkson or Ruben Studdard. Hell, Clay Aiken just made a run for Congress in North Carolina, so who knows what sort of company the Kid Mero has found himself surrounded by this week. A future hall-of-famer? A soon-to-be disgraced starlet? A future Real Houswife of New York? The possibilities are nearly limitless. American Idol is a dream factory where stars are made and the dejected have to turn around and head home because they're opening Radio Shack in the morning and they can't be late again. 

The Kid Mero brings one more layer of struggle as he cruises, and crushes, the hopefuls. Watch the full clip above, and keep it locked to Complex TV for more episodes of Mero in the Wild.
