Playing it Straight results revealed.

Playing it Straight results revealed.
FOX pulled its who’s-gay-and-who’s-straight reality series Playing it Straight in the middle of its run, and said that the series will never return. They have, however, posted recaps for each of the episodes on the show’s web site, including those that never aired. Now we can compare the results to all of the predictions and speculation. Since no one at FOX has ever heard of HTML before, the recaps are all in Flash, but the helpful folks at TV Barn have posted the final episode’s recap on their site. The results: Out of Chris, Sharif, and Banks–the final three–Jackie picked Banks, who turned out to be straight. Sharif was straight; Chris was gay. Both Jackie and Banks received $500,000, which should be enough to console them over their series’ cancellation.
