Relevant to Our Interests: ‘The First Gay Bachelor’

A while ago I watched a fantastic video featuring the inimitable George Takei and Jesse Tyler Ferguson (of Modern Family fame) in a Funny or Die skit that posits the all-important question: what if there was a gay version of American reality show, The Bachelor?¬†Considering I’m currently writing fanfiction¬†using the very same idea, I thought I’d post a link to the clip in one of my chapter notes. And then I promptly forgot all about it until, months later, a thoughtful reader emailed me the video. So before I forget again, here it is in all its glory!

(Playback for the video is unfortunately limited to YouTube, so just click the video after pressing play to be redirected.)

I should probably be taking notes from it, except I can’t imagine a universe in which Asami Ryuichi isn’t attractive to a vast majority of the contestants thrown into his orbit. Poor Bryden.
