Pity the Mormon mothers who tune in looking forward to seeing a nice Mormon boy show the rest of America how they rock in Salt Lake, only to be greeted by 23-year-old Chet Cannon â€“ a nice Mormon boy (VIRGIN!
) â€“ who makes up for his lack of ever having had sex by, well, dressing like a twink bottom on the way to Boysroom. But Chet and his skinny jeans are just the tip of this rainbow-hued, manufactured, conflict iceberg that makes For the first time ever on the show, a transgendered person lives in the house. after he confesses that not only he’s gay, but his father was horribly abusive and his family life growing up was a living hell.

You know, if the tipster's gay bar drinks-clouded mind can be trusted. So, I almost wrote this email to you guys a few weeks ago but stopped because as I wrote it I felt like a huge tool.They’ll know a transgendered person, even if it’s just via schlocky reality TV show.a little digest of CNN anchor Anderson Cooper's rumored romances which included a man by the name of J. Yes, I was having an encounter with the gay cast member of the Real World Brooklyn—whose name happened to be JD, is 23 and hails from Miami Florida.Though she’s now got a boyfriend at home in West Palm Beach, Florida, being the first trangendered person on has to be pretty daunting, so Katelynn defuses the tension by talking about how she’s been in orgies (“polyamory” she explains to Mormon Boy, who doesn’t know what the word means) and by running around in tight pink short shorts.

This is hilarious, because Chet is obviously gay and unable to recognize it, which sounds like something we should all grab each other and sob about.And while this makes us sound horribly misogynistic, it’s really just that these two get little to no time in the first episode, what with all the gay, transgender, sexual ambiguity going on.We’re not going to watch the new , but we will say it’s had a real commitment to putting a human face on the LGBT community.Fortunately for us, Chet makes willful self-delusion entertaining and fun, and the producers have clearly decided Chet’s here to make us larf.We get scene after scene of all the other boys and girls in the house talking about Chet’s pink clothes, skinny jeans (“You left your balls in the sink, man! And then Ryan explains that he’s neatly divided his life between Iraq and America, but also mentions in the same breath how a service buddy of his had just killed himself because he was unable to deal with the post-traumatic stress and it’s at this point that we remind ourselves that Generation Y, or whatever you want to call it, is hardly the materialistic, fame-obsessed vacuous non-entity that some older generations we will not mention here try to depict us as.This, of course, is what’s going on, but just in case it’s not, option two: Because Chet has grown up in Salt Lake, he missed out on the fact that “metrosexual” isn’t actually a real thing at all, but rather a way for straight New York boys to get girls who, because they’re surrounded by gay men who dress well and use product all day, have come to expect basic grooming habits out of the male sex. Break.” Sarah Sarah’s mainly been with girls and is in her first serious relationship with a dude, which, unlike Chet’s self-denial, seems totally sane and normal. This could be because she’s training to be an art therapist, but mostly we think it’s because she’s a good person.
