Antonella Barba offered $500,000 adult DVD site 'spokesperson' deal

Should Antonella Barba's American Idol journey come to an end, the 20-year-old Point Pleasant, NJ native apparently won't have to look too hard for work.

SugarDVD -- the largest renter of adult DVDs online -- has offered Barba $500,000 to become their new "spokesperson," TMZ.com reported on Thursday.  SugarDVD's CEO "Jax" said if Barba were to accept the offer, her first gig would be hosting a launch party for their new video-on-demand service.

"You saw her photos online, she's smokin'," Jax told TMZ.com. 

Barba is currently one of the Top 16 semifinalists competing on the sixth season of Fox' American Idol.  Despite the emergence of numerous provocative photos of her on the Internet in recent weeks, Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe has said the show decided not to disqualify her from the reality competition series.  She's also received support from the Idol's host and judges.

The offer from SugarDVD comes on the heels of Wednesday's report that "Girls Gone Wild" founder and CEO Joe Francis offered Barba $250,000 to become a host for the video company, which found its niche by catching college-age women baring their breasts on film. 

Needless to say, Jax welcomed a bidding war for Barba's services, telling TMZ.com, "We will not lose because of money."
