Wes says James may have had a boyfriend before Boy Meets Boy.
In an interview in Instinct Magazine, noticed by Let Me Get This Straight, Boy Meets Boy‘s Wes Culwell says that James may have had a boyfriend for weeks before the show started taping, and said that after James picked him, he whispered, “I’m so sorry. It’s not over yet. … Please forgive me.” Babbling somewhat incoherently about the whole situation, Wes says that it wasn’t until months after the show taped “James and I [got] a chance to talk [about his boyfriend],” but then says he still doesn’t know for sure if James was dating the guy during the show: “I haven’t gotten a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ from James. If it’s true [that he had a boyfriend during the taping of the show], what was the anger about then? Why didn’t we just have fun with the show?” James apparently wants to take his boyfriend to New Zealand, which Wes says is possible because “we won two separate trips.”

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
