    One more down...

    Hey All!
    Thanks for checking the show out. Made it another round. *phew*

    Just wanted to respond to a few of the questions in earlier posts. When I was approached with the premise of the show I thought it would be a great format to blow gay/straight sterotypes out of the water. Visibility is the # factor in furthering the gay cause and the fact there are romantic undertones and gay men entering the living rooms of America and every Tuesday night is a huge step forward. Shows like Will and Grace, Queer Eye, etc...are great because they illustrate diversity/humor of gay men but the romantic plots explored are few and far between so I think that's why this show is so important.

    As for being recognized, yes. It's become kind of weird. From the grocery store to the beach I take my dog to I get stopped about the show. The topper when I was up in LA yesteday and this car load of 16 year old girls pulls up, looks over and starts screaming..."Wes we looove the show!!" I didn't realize that was our demographic. Haha!

    I thought the gay "mates" didn't know about there being straight "mates" in the house.

    That's true the gay men did not know there were straight men in the house.

    Then did you just "in" yourself? If the gay guys didn't know that their were straight guys in the house, then the premise wouldn't have been known to them. Only the straight guys would have been aware.

    ... that gives a sort of clue... Wes don't spoil us! ...

    ... but I think the fact that it's the first gay dating show ever is what you're talking about? Hmm, most likely not...

    Yup, there may be more lurking around. According to the Newsweek article, James only finds out about the straight guys when there are only 3 left, so he probably finds out at the end of the show. Which means that according to the preview clip, there is one straight left of the final three, there may be more in the six guys that's left in episode 4...

    If the show groups the guys in groups of two, and there's only 1 straight left, I personally see no point in it. To make sure they get one straight guy into the final three, two straight guys need to be paired up if the show's gonna eliminate them in groups of two.

    actually, since the show is over, i am quite sure they all know the outcome and it has been said that james was upset to know that there were straight guys in the mix...
