X-Factor contestant Steve gets a massive erection during his audition

The first episode of The X-Factor offered amazing singer Danyl, and the second episode gave the world 50-year-old Steve, who said before his audition, “I just can’t believe how nervous I can get, but I’m determined to see it through to the bitter end,” and talked about being too embarrassed to even be on TV. The poor man, however, had something else going on that the audience and judges couldn’t ignore: an erection.

As he comes on stage, the audience starts snickering immediately, and Simon Cowell says, “Can we calm this down, please? Everyone’s getting very over-excited.” The camera zooms in on Steve’s excitement: a massive bulge in his pants. There’s a lot more judge double-entedre, as they have fun with Steve’s condition. Louis Walsh says, “Steve, I just don’t think you have the full package.”

Here’s the clip of Steve and his friend, via Unreality TV:
