Bravo’s Manhunt debuts tonight.
Bravo’s Manhunt, not to be confused with the UPN series of the exact same name that ended in disgrace three years ago, debuts tonight at 10 p.m. ET. Entertainment Weekly’s Whitney Pastorek says the male modeling series confirms that “Bravo is now the gayest television network of all time.” That becomes clear during the first challenge, which features the models skydiving in Calvin Klein underwear to the soundtrack of “It’s Raining Men.” Most of the 20 models are straight, although executive producer Stuart Krasnow “expects tonight’s show to reach straight male viewers as well as women and gay men,” according to the Houston Chronicle. The paper says the series is “a chance to ogle hot bods from the comfort and privacy of your living room, hurling popcorn and crude comments at any and all who exhibit the smallest flaw, while also devising a dream scenario involving romance, you and the contestant you want to win.” While The New York Daily News gives it zero stars and compares the series to Are You Hot, The Hollywood Reporter says “The competition is intense, yet unlike the female counterpart on UPN from which it was no doubt derived, there is a certain rawness to it.”
