  1. So these men are piggy backing on those real gay men who tirelessly fought for decades. But now they are too old and absless to be seen on television?

  2. "Hottness" lol, someone needs spell check.

  3. This is a parody, right?

  4. No, bambino: the judges and others you reference just lend credibility to the contest; why trash them like that?

    This looks like a fun contest to me. I know a lotta y'all will squack against it, but I see it as HUGE PROGRESS actually:

    How many times before have we seen a fun affirming show that prizes young gay men's character to a remarkable degree---and doesn't send the message that mere attractiveness is all that matters?

    This is the first one that I remember. Bravo.

  9. This is a joke right?

  10. This is what assimilation looks like. We're here, we're thoroughly co-opted, get used to it.

  12. Despite Wikipedia and useless online dictionaries, gay is solely an adjective. If you can't use the singular...

  13. My vote is for the one with the biggest yanker. Whip 'em out boys, let's see our winner!!

  15. Any of them pediatricians, or molecular biologists studying cell signaling pathways or viral receptor site structure?

  16. If this is "progress" please count me out.

  17. Really? That has to be the worst idea ever, if not an outright joke. The only thing that would redeem it would be a cast of ivy leaguers, financial wunderkinds, and a neuro-scientist or two. Tired.

  18. simply pathetic

    Posted by: john | Oct 8, 2012 12:17:12 PM


  19. That looks horrible. Beyond horrible.

  20. Fabulous!

    And I means that in the worst possible way.

  21. I disagree with y'all. It's ok to have a run of the mill show that is playful like this.

    Maybe your insecurities make you uncomfortable with it? (I'm half kidding; I'm not claiming this is great TV...just as-worthwhile "reality" TV at least, maybe more.) Am I hearing commenters hooked on gay exceptionalism who are uncomfortable looking at normal gay guys in a playful reality show??

    Sure beats "A-list gays that aren't" or "real house-husbands who are catty" whatever that silliness was. Am I wrong on at least this last point? :)

  23. Why should heterosexuals have a monopoly on tacky reality shows?

  24. Ask yourself this: if in the 1960s or even more recently we had a Miss America pageant for only Black women, would that count as "progress" or "assimilation"? No. The only time we support "separate but equal" in this country is by biological sex and sometimes by age with regard to living environment. I can't figure out why so many gay men are okay with being defined primarily by their sexual orientation, and a stereotypical vision of what the lived experience of that orientation is.

  25. @Stefan: Actually there used to be a Miss Black America pageant, which seemed to whither once we started to see black Miss America winnners.
