Boy Meets Boy
I first read about Boy Meets Boy at Mirandala.org. Now after reading the write up about the show in Newsweek, it sound downright cruel. Basically, Boy Meets Boy is the gay version of The Bachelor/The Bachelorette. However, there is a twist in that not all of the men competing are gay. In the mix are a few straight men who get the chance to win $25K if the “the leading man” picks them. However, “the leading man” isn’t told that some of the men aren’t gay until halfway through the season. Considering that he’s there to find “real love” (if that’s even possible on TV), I think it’s disingenuous for the producers to play with people’s emotions like this. This twist smacks of desperation on the part of producers to create huge ratings. Shame on Bravo who is airing this show.
