FOX reveals the identities of 'Playing It Straight's male suitors


By Reality TV World staff, 03/07/2004 

FOX has revealed the names and profiles of the fourteen men who will be starring in Playing It Straight, the network's new reality dating series that seeks to test one woman's (and America's) "gaydar."

Hosted by Daphne Brogdon, the series follows single gal Jackie, a college student from Appleton, Wisconsin, as she embarks on a dating adventure at the Sizzling Saddles Ranch in Elko, Nevada where Jackie has traded in her book bag and No. 2 pencils for a cowboy hat and lasso with the hope of roping in the man of her dreams.

But, like most FOX reality series, Playing It Straight has a twist -- similar to last Bravo's Boy Meets Boy series, not all the men competing for Jackie's heart are straight, some are actually gay men looking to win something other than Jackie's heart -- namely cold hard cash.

The rules are simple: if a straight guy is the last man standing, the couple splits the money. However, if a gay guy fools his way to the finish line, he leaves $1 million richer. With serious cash up for grabs, first impressions have never been more important.

The men include a Cher-loving muscle car collector, a football fanatic who loves shopping, a self-confessed slob obsessed with styling hair, a cigar-smoking sports addict who makes a mean cheesecake, and a triathlete who enjoys sushi and Feng Shui.

Photos of all fourteen men are available for viewing in our Playing It Straight Photo Gallery.

The fourteen men of Playing It Straight are:

Alex - a law student from Washington, DC.

Banks - a software consultant from San Diego, CA.

Bill - a event promoter from Valley Glen, CA.

Bradley - a bartender from Pflugerville, PA.

Chad - a corporate communications from Austin, TX.

Chris - a retired entrepreneur from Atlanta, GA.

Eddie - a school teacher from Miami, FL.

Gust - a real estate agent from Chicago, IL.

John - a bartender from Atlanta, GA.

Lee - a financial consultant from N. Huntington, PA.

Louis - a brokerage firm manager from Forth Worth, TX.

Luciano - a personal trainer from Miami Beach, FL.

Ryan - a waiter from Santa Monica, CA.

Sharif - a musician from Arlington, VA.

The guys will vie for Jackie's affections by participating in group activities and one-on-one dates that will simultaneously tempt her heart and test her "gaydar."

Some will come out with nothing, some will come out of the closet, but only one will come out victorious. As for Jackie, she will either leave with love, money or her "gaydar" in need of serious repair.

Jeremy Mills and Ciara Byrne are executive producers of Playing It Straight, a Lion Television production.
