It didn't take Alex Lambert too long to find his first post-American Idol gig.

The former ninth-season semifinalist is one of six aspiring entertainers participating in the new Big Brother-like Internet reality series If I Can Dream, People reported Tuesday.

If I Can Dream -- which was created by American Idol creator Simon Fuller and debuted earlier this month -- streams 24/7 and follows the six participants as they pursue their careers in Los Angeles and live together in a Hollywood Hills home outfitted with dozens of cameras.

In addition, weekly episodes air every Monday at midnight on hulu.com.

Lambert will be joining former Nashville Star sixth-season finalist Justin Gaston, aspiring model Giglianne Braga, and actors Kara Killmer, Amanda Phillips, and Ben Elliott in the If I Can Dream house.

Lambert, a 19-year-old high school student who currently resides in North Richland Hills, TX was ousted from American Idol's ninth season on the cusp of making the Top 12.

He subsequently told reporters he "wasn't expecting to go home" -- and his fans apparently agreed, as a campaign attempting to get him back on American Idol launched a petition that landed 20,000 signatures.
