airbrush tans and boy meets boy

Stuck in today's world of television am I. Last night I watched a policeman get an airbrush tan. Then I saw that the tanning salon in Pismo offers airbrush tans. I thought about that, about who, why...what the hell...

Tonight I have been drawn to Boy meets Boy again, irritated and pissy though I am at the format. Starting with fifteen totally gorgeous successful young men, some of which are straight. Eliminating them a little at a time, each time with a glass of wine going to the "winners". Little contrived things like horseback rides and picnic lunches, affording opportunities for "one-on-ones", times when they ask each other questions, really.

The whole idea of fifteen men competing for one, as if that one is somehow better than any of the fifteen. It makes no real sense. And how can you get to know someone in a week, surrounded by cameras, competitors, absurd situations?

One of the guys who was just unchosen said, in his parting words, that he was honored to be part of the great experiment, thought it would be good for the gay community. Maybe, but it really seems to underline a lot of the stereotypes instead.
