In his Rolling Stone cover story, American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert admitted he’d been crushing on his roommate in the Idol mansion, Kris Allen.

“I was like, ‘Oh, s—, they put me with the cute guy … Distracting!” Lambert told the magazine. “He’s the one guy that I found attractive in the whole group on the show … totally my type – except that he has a wife.”

Allen’s response? “I’m flattered,” the Idol winner tells PEOPLE exclusively, “And think it’s hilarious.”

The duo will have plenty of time to laugh over their missed chance at bromance this summer: Allen, Lambert and the other eight finalists from the show’s top ten will hit the road on a 52-date tour starting July 5 in Portland, Ore.
