Big Brother 9's Neil Garcia Explains What a Twink Is


As you may remember, gay Big Brother 9 housemate Neil Garcia left the house abruptly for reasons that have not been revealed.

Presumably he made these five "instructional" videos for WeHoPedia TV before his Big Brother stint, because I'm not sure I would call this gig something to run out the door for.

In the video below, Neil provides basic instruction on what a "twink" is:

"Twink is a gay term describing an attractive young or younger gay man, usually in his late teens or early 20's. He's got a slender build and little to no body hair. The term twink is often modified by various descriptors such as the 'butch' twink, 'femme' twink, 'euro' twink, and the 'muscle' twink! The term is an allusion to the Twinkie pastry which is golden or blond on the outside, with cream on the inside, and is pleasantly sweet but with little nutritional value. There is a 'backronym' that states twink stands for teenaged, white, into no kink. Although none of these things are either necessary or sufficient for being a twink. Thanks for watching WeHoPedia TV. I'm your host, Neil Garcia."

NOTE: I was having an issue running the videos with some browsers, particularly Safari.

AFTER THE JUMP, four more videos about West Hollywood, and the terms "Bisexual Chic", "Questioning", and "Bi Curious".

  1. That has to be the dumbest thing I have EVER seen. Wow he's not cute and is annoying - anyone else freaked out by how he does the same thing with his hands OVER AND OVER?

  2. No, not really.

  3. My favorite is that they actually misspelled "Neil" on the chyron.

  4. Interesting that the phrasing of the video is almost identical to the Wikipedia entry for 'Twink (Gay Slang)'

  5. I think the videos are wrong. Of the four posted after the jump, two of them are the 'twink' video and one is about WeHo history no about terminology...
