I actually like the idea. I've been wanting some kid of GLBT dating show for a while. And even if it is a cruel twist in there concerning the straight actors, it's just like all the other dating shows. I can't wait for one to come out with women. yummy.
And as for the protesters, well, let them protest. Most people don't care what they say. At least most people I know don't.
And congrats to Bravo for being openminded.

At least in this particular case, it looks as though the straight men in the dating pool are willing confederates of the show's producers, who are actually *trying* to get picked - if the gay guy picks a straight guy, the straight guy gets the money.

I read about this show over on the Teenage Chicken Soup message board. I wonder if we'll get it in Canada? Anyhoo, I think that's pretty sick. Of COURSE harm is going to be done! Have you ever watched shows like the Bachelor! The women who get kicked off often break down completely! I know those are women, but what if the poor guy picks a straight guy?? This is just a little twisted IMO. All gay guys- fine. But straight guys posing as gay... oh lord, what is this world coming to?

'Take anything you want from me. Anything.'
