Qox Populi . Tuesday 9th - Sunday 14th
[ Welcome to GuyTVBlog.com's 3rd season of Qox Populi! What's that you ask? Sit up close to your PC screen, pucker your lips and let's find out! This new pop culture wannabe phrase is created based on the term, Vox Populi, which means "popular public opinion" or "voice of the people". To give it a queer edge, as GuyTVBlog.com tends to do with TV programs, this webmaster has changed the first letter to "Q" thus making the immature side of your personality pronance the word as "cox poppye lee". It's fun to talk dirty, teach your friends.
This is how Qox Populi will work. Each week, on every Monday, you'll find within these weekly posts various news topics, rants and raves as well as my personal dislikes & my highly respectable opinion(s) [of course to those of interest] regarding everything that appears on your TV box. Anytime I watch a show or experience something pop culture related on tv that has a queer/gay/homo twist, I will post about it under each week's Qox Populi entry. Visit GuyTVBlog.com all week to see how it works. ]
Gays Win Every Week . Last night Lifetime TV debuted Gay, Straight or Taken, the dating show where a woman has to correctly pick the straight single guy out of the 3 candidates to win some kind of prize. If she chooses incorrectly then the Gay or Taken guy will walk away with the prize at the end.
How the show works is the woman who comes onto the show has NO IDEA what the premise is. She meets the 3 guys and they all started chatting... and then she gets a phone call. She answers it and it's a woman informing her that one of the guys there is her boyfriend and if she chooses him then she and her boyfriend win the big prize at the end.
She reacts shocked and asks the guy who's single and they all say they're single. Then comes ANOTHER PHONE CALL and this male caller says the same speech but that one of the 3 guys she's on a date with is GAY.
After the whole phone call thing the rest of the show becomes daunting and dull. Here comes the fast forward button. I already knew who was Gay during the first episode and revealed the answer here on GuyTVBlog.com. But a part of me was really wishing that Chris was the gay one this time. Damn he is so my type. Fuuuckkk, make me faint with an erection!
The end of the show gets really fun. The girlfriend and boyfriend of the Gay and Taken guys come out and inform the girl dating the 3 guys that they are here hoping she looses the show. The dating girl goes into her speech and starts labeling the 3 guys as either Gay, Taken or Straight. She labeled Chris, my GuyTVBlog TV Crush, as the gay one. He ended up being the Taken guy.
She then picks Luciano and labels him the Straight guy. But he steps forward and informs the girl that he's gay and she losses and he hugs his boyfriend yet gives us queer viewers no fuckin kiss.
It's a fun show that just keeps you smiling all episode long, especially during the ending. You're smiling and laughing so much that your cheeks will hurt.
The 2nd episode also aired during the premiere. Don't worry, every Monday we'll be getting 2 brand new episodes back to back. During the 2nd premiere episode I guessed Vic was the gay one as the show aired and in the end... I was wrong. FUCK.
Laugh At Martha! . Come on, let's all laugh at Martha Stewart. It seems her show is back with all new episodes starting this week and the rich rich rich rich RICH rich rich girl went on the air and started to promote another "Good Thing". The tip involved putting a hot water bottle thing at the foot of your bed to keep your feet warm during cold nights. Well she then started to inform the audience that we could also make "covers" for our hot water bottles.
She made a comment about making "sweaters" for the water bottles... get this... out of "cashmere" sweaters. You know, your used- done with, Cashmere fucking sweaters. Like everyone has the money to buy one to cut the fuck up and make a little sweater for the damn hot water bottle. The audience slowly started to laugh at her but the show went on as Martha didn't respond with words but only a smile and then the audience was suddenly silenced off camera. The average price for a Cashmere sweater or clothing made of Cashmere is average $99-$140 bucks.
Ohhhh Martha! Cue the retro 50's head tilt w/ smile as the camera zooms in for a close up.
Homo-Romance-phobia . On VH1's I Love New York, the 20 selected men were standing outside of the mansion at the start of the show. The front doors opened and what they thought would be Ms. New York stepping out ended up being her gay for pay sidekick Chamo.
Most of the guys started reacting like he was toxic and/or contangious and some started to overact as straight guys do and started making it known that they ain't playing like that. Some started walking off, which is fine, but ONE started acting like a Homopobe. I'm talking about Romance aka Crybaby Metrosexual My-Princess-Died Toothpick contestant of I Love New York.
As you see in the picture just above, once Chamo came out Romance started to act as if he just couldn't be seen. He first put up an "X" over his turned away face towards Chamo, the gay for pay sidekick. Then he put his hoodie from his jacket over his entire face and turned his back on Chamo. As if he could not longer be embarrassed and just couldn't stand the sight of an actual gay man.
Get this Romance, there's a whole lot of gay men in Ms. New York's life and if you for some fucked up reason make it the finale you better learn to accept all gay men as just friends. Not everyone wants you, you ain't all that. Step your mutha fuckin' ego down some damn notches.
The only guy caught on camera taking in the humor of it all is Onix. The man that I feel will be in the final four. Good job Onix.. good job... this week at least.
Down with Romance!
Top Morons! . Last night's episode of Top Chef featured the multiple headed villain that includes the highly immature Cliff, the highly immature Ilan, the highly immature Michael and the pretty face Sam, all attacking Marcel, the highly opinionted a-hole with heart. Last week a head of the multiple headed villain was cut off, that being Betty's head. This week another head was cut off, Michael's!!!
Also in last night's episode the super jealous and very catty Ilan actually told Marcel's friend Elia that she should throw the challenge, blame everything on Marcel and get him sent home!
Well next week comes the episode where the judges send someone home due to immature behaviour supposely not related to any contest given to the chefs. It seems Cliff and Ilan do something physical to Marcel's hair [I'm assuming] and this act gets them both kicked off the show thus leaving my predicted final 3, Sam, Elia and Marcel.
Expect the Cast Reunion special to air in about 2 to 3 weeks. There's going to be some explosive confrontations and nearly all will be directed towards Marcel.
Passion's Limp Dick . I'm having some issues with NBC's Passions. The daily soap opera that has witches, lesbians and Miguel. The show has lost its fun edge it once had in the past few weeks. We've got the annoying storyline involving Fancy and always being in damn trouble! I mean this stupid character is always and I MEAN ALWAYS in fucking trouble. I'm sick of it. But the best thing out of this storyline is Fancy's sister Sheridan has turned into Mega Cunt Bitch. Oh yeah, me's likes the bad female villains.
I'm sick of Ethan and Theresa not being together and almost being together and then not being together, I understand this is a soap opera but this whole dragging out process is just a horrid thing to watch. And speaking of Theresa, the heart of Passions, her new beau interest, Jared, is a step down and just completely unwatchable.
Speaking of unwatchable there's the Chad Harris storyline and who's he's sleeping with behind his wife's back Is he fucking a man or a woman? Having an affair is the norm when it comes to soap operas but having a gay affair is mind blowing drama for a soap opera and Passions seems to be fuckin tip toeing towards that outcome. The show has yet to tell us if the person Chad is sleeping with is in fact a woman. The mystery and hope of a male brother on the down low is a coming...
Here's how I watch Passions. I Tivo it and then fast forward through all the storylines until I either see Tabitha, Ethan & Theresa fucking, anything involving Miguel - Kay - Fox, Gwen & Theresa fighting and anything with Rebecca, Gwen's mother. Once I see these characters I press play and watch. Once they're off the air, it's back to fast forwarding.
That's NBC's Passions, to me at least. Fix it NBC.
Apprentice, That Whore . For those who missed the debut can watch it repeat on CNBC cable channel. Every episode will be repeated on the CNBC news channel so there's no need to make this program appointment TV.
Check out this funny Conan clip of the host interviewing a fake Donald Trump about "Fatty O'Chocolate Sauce" who drives a "Fat-illac" and loves the Dr. Suess book "The Fat in the Fat". That's some funny shit Conan!
