An American reality television show in which a gay man meets and chooses a mate from a group of 15 potential male suitors. The twist is that the "leading man" does not know the mix of suitors includes both gay and heterosexual men.
The writer who said that the show played up stereotypes and that the contestants were too "clean and scrubbed" must not have watched any of the other "reality" shows. I was able to resist most of them but one in particular I did see all of was "Joe Millionaire". The guys on "Boy Meets Boy" were no less scrubbed and selective than the gals on Joe. It's just the type of show that it is. What's good for the women is good for the guys too, that's it. I'm not offended by watching people who actually take care of their bodies (gee, we only have one ya know.) TV doesn't necessarily always pander to this idea. "Roseanne" was a good example of the opposite, showing overweight parents and their dorky children who all had to put up with each other, without the benefit of a gym membership, Lexus, or summer cabin. Imagine. So in that sense, BMB is an actual "break" from reality, something the creators of the genre probably intended to start with.
