Surprisingly good
17 March 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was expecting the worst--a woman has to choose between fourteen hunky, handsome men. The twist--some of them are gay. If she picks a straight guy--they split a million dollars. If she picks a gay guy he gets it all. This has to be done very carefully--it can easily slip over into homophobia and if they take it too seriously--forget it. For the record, I'm a gay guy.

This was done very well and isn't TOO serious. I was afraid the straight guys would keep going on and on about how they were straight and no way would ANYONE think they were gay. But they had all of the guys admitting to having certain effeminate qualities and there was NO homophobia in sight. I'm just going by the first episode though. Also she asked two STRAIGHT guys to leave. She thought they were gay--so did I!

The way it's looking this might actually knock down those stereotypes of how gay men "look" and "act". Can't wait to see how it turns out!

My only complaint--like most reality TV shows, the final elimination round that ends each episode look like it's going to last FOREVER!
