I thought the QB was gay myself. If that did turn out to be the case, the dad would die on the spot. I wonder to what extent they played that up just for the sake of the show, but it's sadly not that far fetched that a father would be like that. I was not at all surprised by him making it through to Vegas, though I do think he should probably just come back next year and try again. If he somehow slips through even further, his lack of experience will prevent him from getting as far as he could get with more training.
