  1. Damn, there is nothing sexier than two handsome guys kissing.

  2. What a cliché! Some club soda will get that out! LOL

    In the third part, the one guy should have tried to open the other guy's shirt. Then, that could lead to the kiss.

    The actresses with the girl-on-girl parts had the easiest way to stand out. No wonder they won.

  3. I had to laugh watching the one guy sit there like he was awaiting root canal.

  4. Admirable that the two guys approached the kiss as part of the job, but too bad they couldn't execute it better.

  5. Maybe they're just bad kissers?

  6. It's getting a bit tiresome to hear this "issue" over and over again. It's especially tiresome and frustrating when you realize that the REAL acting is coming from the guys who are ACTING like they've never done this before. I mean really, how many times do we get to hear an actor being interviewed talking about how hard it was for him to have to pretend to be gay and how uncomfortable it was for him to have to kiss another guy only to find out later that he was gay all along. There's at least one prime example of this phenomenon right in front of our eyes.

  7. Zeke is right. These actors should be able to ACT like they want to kiss each other.

    There is a lot more bad acting out there than I thought.

  8. Of course they should be able to act. But I can't fault them for being "nervous" or even uncomfortable given the society we've all grown up in.

    At least they realize that their chosen profession is going to require this sort of thing from time to time. And at least they didn't recoil in disgust and horror, curse loudly and throw a hissy fit. That's progress, in my view.

  9. No -- the REAL progress is that the gay characters are the prime movers of the show's ratings, and that the actors who play them are being set up here as role models! For the love of Van Hansis!

  10. I vote for the girls...the two guys were just... a bit awkward..

  11. Aw but some of my best kisses came from when it was 'a bit awkward'. Practice ... lots of practice.

  12. Justin sounds like a big queen (when the stylist finished his hair I thought he was gonna bust out with a big "Fabulous!") and yet he is soo relieved that he is kissing a woman!

    Chile, please!

    Zeke is 100% right. These guys need to stop the charade.
