COMING OUT OF THE CLOSET CAN BE A DIFFICULT AND PAINFUL PROCESS … EVEN MORE SO IF YOU'RE NOT REALLY GAY TWO-HOUR SPECIAL "SERIOUSLY, DUDE, I'M GAY" AIRS MONDAY, JUNE 7, ON FOX
Amanda Byram Hosts
It's a heterosexual male's worst nightmare: turning gay overnight. Can two very straight men convince everyone they know that they are actually gay? Well, two guy's guys are going to try to do just that … all for the chance of winning fifty thousand dollars. The current pop culture craze for all things gay is taken to an outrageously satirical extreme in this hilarious reality special from the creators of "My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiancé." SERIOUSLY, DUDE, I'M GAY, hosted by Amanda Byram (THE SWAN), airs Monday, June 7 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
For one week a pair of straight guys will immerse themselves in "the gay lifestyle." Each will move into separate West Hollywood lofts, complete with three gay roommates, to experience what it's like to live life as a gay man.
Each day the guys will complete a challenge that tests their ability to pass for gay. They'll come out of the closet to their best friends; they'll mix, mingle and dance in gay nightclubs; and they'll even go on a romantic blind date with another man.
If they master each of their challenges, they'll stand before a panel of judges made up of gay men from all walks of life. This jury of their queers will declare which of the two guys they believe is actually gay … and that guy will win fifty thousand dollars!
It's one thing to have yourself and your home made over by a group of gay guys, but this wildly twisted contest pushes things one step further. Watch as these fish-out-of-water competitors put their sexual identities on the line in a television experiment that's relevant, shockingly funny and socially provocative.
SERIOUSLY, DUDE, I'M GAY is a Rocket Science Laboratories production. The special is executive produced by Chris Cowan & Jean-Michel Michenaud with executive producer Ray Giuliani.
