Manhunt, revisited

In a previous post I mentioned my disdain for the Bravo show Manhunt, at least to the extent that it featured almost no people of color. As an aside, I mentioned that there were no "out" gay men on the show either.

Well, I was wrong. Apparently, at least one guy, Rob, is in fact gay. Okay, it's mentioned in his biography on the web site, but I didn't take the time to read through the bios, I was just kinda watching the show. In a recent episode, he finally "came out" to his fellow contestants and expressed some surprise that no one even realized he was gay.

Of course, the obliviousness could come from the fact that while all these prettyboys revel in their metrosexuality, it just blurs the line between gay and trendy.
