As hard as it is to believe... Franklin MUST be the straight man. ( I know he's emotional and showed some jealousy but $$$ will make you jealous, huh?)
Remember, the producers put in the "straight" twist as the hook. If all of the straight men got eliminated before the last episode... the "hook" would have been eliminated... and no chance for James to pick one of the straight guys.
In this weeks episode the selections were as follows:
Brian was paired with Darren. Darrin was eliminated and was gay
Wes was paired with Robb. Robb was eliminated and was gay
Franklin was paired with Sean. Sean was eliminated and was straight.
There is ONE straight boy left...
Franklin would HAVE TO BE STRAIGHT so that the producers could guarentee that one of the straight guys would be in the final three. The producers would not take a "chance" that somehow James might eliminate all the straight guys.
If you even went as far as to assume that Three of the six were straight (not likely at this point) with ONE straight Boy in each of the three groups, There would have been a chance that all three straight boys would have been eliminated. Producers would be pissed.
Keep in mind... the selection is done really fast and James doesn't have any real time to logically think it out. At this point he could pick just about anyone. So the producers can't "guess" who they think he has connected with in the groups.
My heart will be broken when I find out that Franklin is the straight Boy. He is so cute.
If by some chance James picks the straight boy... how will the straight boy feel... I know it's supposed to be a game... but that would be a real dirty trick. Also if the straight boy gets selected he'll probibly be more hated in the gay community than Eminem.
