AMERICAN IDOL

The nine-bedroom Bel Air mansion where the Idol contestants were once housed is occupied by long-gone tenants, according to season 8's Anoop Desai, and season 10 runner-up Lauren Alaina and James Durbin. "I saw something white that looked like an arm," Durbin told PEOPLE of what he found in the garage. Alaina added, "Me and Pia were upstairs and the doors flew open. We were watching a scary movie before that and we were [already] freaked out." In 2011, the mansion sold for $11.2 million.
