Gay Gladiators (And We're Not Talking Achilles and Patroclus)

Looks like the testosterone-fueled NBC reality hit American Gladiators is making a play for gay audiences...they're now actively searching for gay contestants in their second season. As if having Militia, the former male porn star, wasn't enough of a draw! (Of course, the biggest obstacle to reaching gay audiences is a little more obvious...the show is tedious, moronic, and brain-dead. But there are glutes and abs aplenty!)

See, Gladiators premiered down here last night (er, Australia) and it was just as ridiculous as I remembered, but that's why I like it. I don't ask for much from a show like Gladiators (or It's a Knockout, if America got that show), but it does what it does and does it with finesse.

And I say that as a gay guy who only finds one of our seven male gladiators good looking.

Militia? I don't remember what that joker looks like. HE was the porn star? Figures. It couldn't have been someone superhot, like Titan.

As antediluvian as the show may be, there's something encouraging in the producer's claim they need contestants "America can root for" and its recruitment of gays. It's a glimmer of enlightenment, anyway.
