Here’s a short intro on what the TV shows about. There’s this girl, and she can win £100,000 (to share) with the guy she chooses. Only thing is that the 12 contestants aren’t all straight, in fact some are gay!
Now if the gay man can fool her into choosing him then he pockets the loot.

Now I’ve guessed correctly so far. But trying to tell whose gay, and who isn’t is well I think quite easier said than done.

It’s on Friday evenings on Channel 4 at 10-00pm.

lol No! The one cute one I can see is Zoe the girl.

I take it this show has been on TV in Europe before being shown in this format in the UK.

Shaved haired Danny is gay and so is Alex. I have a feeling Ben is gay because he is the straightest guy on there (too obvious for my liking).

I think Marco is straight, especially after the Rafael fiasco :o

Australia has had its version. It didn't rate well and so won't be returning. The girls' name was Rebecca and she was the most gullible and naive woman you'd ever meet. She chose a straight guy in the end so they shared the money. She didn't find true love in the end. She didn't actually fall for the straight guy. She chose him based on her own intuition that the one she truly wanted may not be as straight as she thought. She was right in the end, after many, many clues, dropped hints and even help from her own mother (who thought that all final three men were gay).

I really don't get this whole obsession with "is he/she gay" stuff.

the show works on one of the most ugly form os liberlism that there is -
we accept the stereotype, the laughable, miserable and disguasting minority because he's good for a joke or two.
they did it with women, black, eastern and the list goes on and on.
if you don't know a few things in the world - neo-sexism, neo-racism sell big time.
you just have to be careful, and the money will flow like water.

most girls in my class are like "OM! GAY GUYS ARE SO HOT AND CUTE AND LOVE TO WEAR A BRA!", so you understand, more and more people accept homosexuals, but not as equals but as a silly-minded spieces.

quite disguasting, IMHO.
people are people are people.
