I'm so sorry to have missed the Today show this morning...LOVE the comment about Endora's School of Eyebrow Tweezing
I rewatched all 5 again yesterday & am more convinced than ever that Wes is straight! I just hope James doesn't pick him.
If you were watching episode #1 (or 2) closely, the only guys who touched or hugged James when they first met, or later when they got picked to stay, were all the straight guys! That included Wes...all trying so hard to show they were comfortable touching a guy. I'm sure they were coached on this by the producers.
I also thought that it was interesting that on the wall of pictures, they put Franklin on the top row center, and he was James VERY first pick on ep#1, followed by Brian. And they both made it to the final round.
Another note on the groupings: when they were down to 12 left with 6 being straight: if my theory holds, then they guaranteed 4 straights continuing by putting 3-of-4 straights with one gay in 2 groups, with the 3rd group all gay. Nine (3 from each group) continued: 4 straight & 5 gay. Franklin was in a group of 4 with 3 straights.
T-minus 2 1/2 hours...and counting!
