    At that point James "gaydar" would have probably gone "thunk." IMHO. But he was fun!

    Yeah, definitely. James said in the recent advocate.com interiew that he wasn't surprised at all that Dan and Michael were straight.

    And the whole 'Chris' story was such a stupid idea. What did he expect James to get out of that story when he said he had a boyfriend?

    Dan and James don't seem to be much of friends either. He says he doesn't see him. James does get to see Dan when he sees Brian H. (since Brian and Dan are friends), but that's it.

    Anyway, you're all probably wondering why the heck I haven't posted that Las Vegas chat transcript yet, lol. I'm trying to get the exact wording, but it's pretty hard, especially with all the blurry words on my recorder. I'll try to get it posted by Sunday.

    Hm, has anyone seen post-BMB interviews with Dan? I haven't seen any lately, at all.

    I've emailed him about his BMB radio tour but he hasn't responded. I guess he's busy with that movie he's working on.

    I wonder what post-BMB stuff Dan will work on, now that he's got this temporary exposure? I mean, Wes is moving to L.A. to get into showbusiness, and I heard he's having interviews to be a host of a reality show.
    ... and for the last time, I'm not Matthew from BMB (the guy in my avatar).

    Ok, if true, maybe I've been a bit hard on Dan. It would also seem that from his web-site that BMB and LOST is less central his acting career than I originally thought (certainly less than Wes' site, in which the BMB experience pretty much dominates so far).

    Here is the article then since the website seems to be down.

    BOY MEETS BOY: WAS STRAIGHT

    FRANKLIN ROBBED?

    Now that the series is over, tongues are a-wagging non-stop about BOY
    MEETS BOY.

    It's hard to produce a six-hour reality series, filmed over eight
    days, and have not a single second of reality left in the final cut,
    but Evolution Film and Tape, the company that produced the series for
    Bravo, managed to do it. It's a little understandable—Evolution
    wanted to emulate THE BACHELOR, adding a JOE MILLIONAIRE-like twist.
    But in this strict focus, they missed seeing the potentially
    compelling reality show that they ignored and ended up simply leaving
    on the cutting-room floor.

    Hints of that potentially compelling behind-the-scenes reality leaked
    out the day after the finale, when two mates—straight Dan and gay
    Darren—called in to Sirius OutQ's THE DEREK AND ROMAINE SHOW. Of all
    of the comments on BOY MEETS BOY I've heard, co-host Derek Hartley
    had the most insightful and to the point: that the producers ruined
    their own gimmick by letting James in on the "straight" twist before
    his final selection ... the only thing that led him NOT to pick
    Franklin.

    "I think that if James had not been told the twist—that there was a
    straight guy in the mix—then Franklin would have won and would have
    gotten the $25,000," Hartley said. "Because James definitely liked
    Franklin, and I think that once he knew that somebody was straight,
    that it was very clear that Franklin was the straight one. I mean, it
    pretty much had to be. There really wasn't anyone else that it could
    have been."

    In other words, thanks to Evolution, Franklin was robbed of the
    $25,000, which he should have won for "fooling" the gay bachelor
    (however offensive some may have found that aspect of the game).
    Franklin was there to play the game; for instance, the camera showed
    him touching James's knees and being physically suggestive of
    intimacy. As Hartley observed, "Franklin looked very disappointed
    when James said he knew he was a straight guy and that's why he
    didn't choose him."

    Talking on DEREK AND ROMAINE, straight Dan revealed something that no
    one watching the series would have known: that the housemates
    actually had a great energetic time together: "There was a lot of fun
    partying—it was hysterical. I wish you guys could have seen it." The
    bonds formed were strong enough that Dan even told the producers that
    he seriously wanted off the show once he realized that lying to his
    new gay friends about being gay was essentially toying with their
    feelings and might result in some hurt. As Dan described it, "When
    you saw me leaning against the wall, thinking, the next instant I
    walked into the producers office and said, `Guys, this is just wrong.
    I'm not going to do the show any more. I had fun for three days, I
    appreciate it, but I'm quitting.' It was a big fiasco; they were
    like, `Dan, calm down. It's not a big deal, you need to relax. We
    promise we will get you off in the next round,' and it's no
    coincidence that they put me up against two of the finalists, because
    those were his favorites at that time."

    "It sounds like a lot of the straight guys who were on the show had
    the same reaction you did," said Hartley. "Which is that they thought
    it might be fun or interesting, but once they got there and saw that
    the guy was really genuinely looking for a boyfriend, (that
    changed)."

    "Yea, Brian and I were, like, partying," said Dan. "We were drunk the
    whole first few days, jumping around in the pool, and then all of a
    sudden you see Andra crying and you're like, `Oooh, OK, this isn't
    actually as fun as we had thought.' And James didn't even know the
    twist ... I was just like, dude, if you ONLY knew ..."

    Straight Dan was actually sought out by NBC's head of reality /
    alternative programming to be on BOY MEETS BOY, who knew of him
    because Dan had previously won $130,000 as a contestant on LOST, an
    NBC reality show that aired two years ago.

    Gay mate Darren said James and Wes were not, in fact, dating, and
    that—at a post-finale cast party at HERE in West Hollywood, they were
    not intimate. "They were friends. James even said it on the show: `I
    can't see anything going anywhere with Wes.' They're
    friends." "So ... there was no love match made," concluded DEREK AND
    ROMAINE co-host Romaine Patterson.

    Here again, it's another quote that makes Franklin look like a jerk. And I'm not buying it. Too bad the guy doesn't come forth and come clean.

    Hey there...that was a GREAT article...It shows 2 different straight guys in a different light. My opinion on Dan is a whole lot different now (for the better), and now I'm really starting to question Franklin's motives for going on the show.
