    No noooo please noo! Last thing we need as our image is a bunch of queeny gay men fighting over a guy all in the name of "love".

    We need a show that isn't stereotypical of gay men. I think a suitable name would be RealJock.

    It wasn't exactly a gay The Bachelor, but Bravo already did something like it years ago:

    there was also a show on Fox in 2004 called "Playing it straight". In which one woman spent time on a ranch with a group of men in an attempt to discern which of them were gay and which of them were hetero. All of the men pretended to be heterosexual. The woman went on individual dates with the men, in addition to engaging in group activities with them. Over the course of the episodes, she voted to eliminate the men she believed to be gay.

    At the end of the show, the woman had to choose one man. If he was heterosexual, the man and woman would split the prize money, but if he was gay, then he would receive all the money (and the woman would receive nothing).

    This shit is worse than the Bachelor.

    Not only is it exploitative like the Bachelor but on top of it all there are straight guys posing as flute players. What a mess.


    During a period of bad television viewing judgment, I watched this program. At first, it was fun watching some nice looking guys going on dates and playing around. But Bravo made this a social experiment by choosing not to reveal to the main man and his female friend that half the guys were straight.

    I felt really bad for the main guy because they put him in an incredibly awkward position. His friend was very pissed when she found out. At the end, he had to confront a straight guy who was one of the final two guys. I thought it was too restrained. They should have let him beat the crap out of the guy who was lying.

    Wasn't there already one? I think it was called Boy Meets Boy, and I'm sure it was on Bravo. I never saw it, but I remember there being one.

    No, they tried it with "Boy Meets Boy" and it didn't even make it on BRAVO.

    Isn't the premise of the show that the bachelor/bachelorette eventually falls in love and plan to get married?
    It will happen when same-sex marriage is legal in more places.
