Manhunt down to final five; gay dance club stripper Hunter shows his homophobia.

Manhunt down to final five; gay dance club stripper Hunter shows his homophobia.
Manhunt is down to six fully-shaved men, including embedded model Kevin Peake. The final five contenders for a modeling contract are Hunter, Jon, Maurice, Rob, and Tate. For his part, Hunter is probably grateful that most of the country was watching election returns on Tuesday night, rather than watching his one-man demonstration of the words “irony” and (internalized?) “homophobia.” After Rob came out to the other models, Hunter expressed his shock and said that he “had never even heard someone say they were gay before.” Then later, when being teased by Tate, Hunter said, “Quit calling me a bitch, I’m not some fucking queer.” This is ironic–and quite sad, really–because, as we learned earlier via revealing photos, Hunter–or someone who is his twin–isn’t exactly a stranger in these parts. He used to dance at the gay bar known as the Backstreet Dance Club in Little Rock. (Strangely, the page that used to host the photos has been deleted.) As regular Manhunt drama chronicler Andy Towle points out, “Does this mean the Backstreet Dance Club in Little Rock has a ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy?”

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
