ONE gay guy is left, and he was paired with Sean.... Sean was straight. They would have obviously paired the two straight guys together, that way one was guaranteed into the final 3... if it were Wes, or Brian that were straight, and he would have selected Robb or Darrin to stay, there would be no straight guys left.... Franklin is straight, but I do give him credit for doing a pretty good job of acting though ..funny how 25,000 can make you pretend to be jealous over a kiss

    25k is a lot of money especially for someone who's struggling. i don't know what the financial affairs of each mate, but money talks. you get money and some fame. how many doors would that open? you don't have to worry about restaurants that would say that they're all booked up for the night, instead get celebrity event invitations, like the kate griffin party. i mean look at this gig (bmb). it's not bad at all. it's not like you're doing porn. it's effortless acting. unfortuantely, it's survival of the fittest. it's personal choice that separates us.

    I have to say, I really think Franklin will identify as gay. I think Wes is the straight one. My reasoning:

    1. In the fast montage in the first show, he appears to be talking about a period of time when he dated (or at least "looked at") both men and women trying to figure out what he wanted. I doubt a straight man would do that (or admit to it, anyway).

    2. He really did look jealous

    3. The hug test as discussed in another post here

    4. He actually seemed to be tearing up after the departure of the three eliminated mates

    5. His family has money (he alluded to it at the group dinner at the house) and he doesn't need the $25 k probably

    ALTHOUGH, I have to admit, Gizmo has a good point about pairing the straight guys together to ensure one would stay. But come on - a choice between Franklin and Sean? Whom would you have picked???? Y'all may turn out to be surprised yet.

    Did anyone notice Darren's previewed line last week "if I'd have said something to James, two people wouldn't be here" was never used? Jeez, way to tease us!!!

    1. MOST STRAIGHT GUYS AT ONE POINT QUESTION THERE SEXUALITY AND MAYBE FRANKLIN IS JUST OPEN ENOUGH TO ADMIT IT

    2. HE LOOKED JEALOUS BECAUSE HE FELT LIKE HE WAS HAVING HIS 25K TAKEN RIGHT AWAY!

    3. DIDN'T SEE WHEN HE HUGGED JAMES BUT WHEN HE HUGGED BRIAN HE DID THE WHOLE "STRAIGHT BACK RUBBING THING

    4. HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF YOU HAD TO SAY GOODBYE TO 3 OF YOUR FRIENDS!

    5. POSSIBLY MADE UP FAMILY TO MAKE HIMSELF APPEAR MORE CULTURED OR MAYBE IT IS TRUE AND HES JUST TRYING TO VENTURE OUT ON HIS OWN, EARN HIS OWN MONEY

    JUST MY OPINION AT LEAST I THINK ARGUMENTS EITHER WAY MAKE SENSE UNTIL WE FIND OUT THE TRUTH! TUESDAY CAN NOT COME SOON ENOUGH!

    I can hear you fine Realitynut 95! No need to shout!

    Hey it's just my minority opinion.

    Watching the hug test closely, I noticed that James himself did the "hetero pat" on almost all the guys!

    I know what y'all are sensing in Franklin. My prediction is that he's pretty fresh at self-identifying as gay. My guess is that experience-wise, he falls pretty much in the middle of the sexuality scale. FYI, I'm a bisexual woman (and no, I'm not confused, etc.) Although I was confused, at one point, at how both straight and gay society want you to "pick a team."

    So my read on Franklin is that he's one of the few that falls pretty much in the middle rather than tending to one side or the other. And that he used to identify as straight, now identifies as gay, and at some point in his life, will identify as bisexual. So for everyone who reads him as straight, I think that's what you're feeling from him.

    Only my opinion!

    There was no doubt that James would pick Franklin over Sean, so the fact that Sean was straight doesn't necessarily mean that Franklin must've been straight too since they were paired together. Wes with Robb was also an obvious choice as well. Basically Franklin and Wes were shoe-ins for the final 3 unless they were paired together . So ONE OF THEM must be the straight one. Since Franklin is the obvious one for various reasons that people have pointed out, I almost think it makes it more likely that he is actually gay. As with any other reality show, they always want you to think one way and have it turn out a different way - especially a show like this which prides itself on "breaking stereotypes".

    I'm also still suspicious of Wes' earlier question to James - "Why would assume that I'm GAY?". umm... because you're on a show called "Boy Meets Boy"? Why would he ask this????

    sorry i didnt realize i had caps lock on, i dont look at the screen when i type. I wasnt try to offend you i was just trying to depict the evidence either way. it just depends on how or what you are looking for i guess was my point, i mean if you tried you could find ways to support that even james might be straight which we all know is not the case thats all. sorry for "shouting" and i hope you can see my side as well

    More evidence for our case that Franklin is straight: Brian H. said that Franklin was acting really Nelly in the pool....right before he mocked (leg-crossing/pinky in the air like he just don't care ) DAN for being so GAY. Must sing the next line...He's the guy with no Straigh-dar.

    I didn't realize there were so many straight guys on this show. Now it really seems mean spirited. In other words, he was being deceived the entire time by people he considered possible friends. I'd have a difficult time trusting after that. Now that he knows one of the guys is straight, I would make it a point to kiss all of them, to make someone uncomfortable!!! I wouldn't be surprised if the bartender was the straight one. There are lots of straight guys who do very well as bartenders in gay bars.

    Was this in episode 3? I think I missed it.

    The straight/gay ratio was about half and half. 7 straight, 8 gay.

    If Brian is straight he too deserves an Oscar. I mean, come on, he admitted to having a crush on Dan. Unless that was just apart of Brian's strategy or something.
