Game show eye candy

I really love a good game show. While I prefer game shows from before I was born, (eg Match Game from the 70's) there are some good ones on today.

Case in point - Hollywood Game Night. It's fast paced and entertaining. And I enjoy seeing celebrities outside their acting element (and even their interviewee element too.) But the icing on the cake for Hollywood Game Night - there's some good eye candy. And yes, while there are some beautiful females on the show, I'd like to talk about the men. (Duh, I'm gay.) :)

Without further ado...

Matthew Morrison

Zachary Quinto

Jerry Ferrara

David Walton

John Legend

Curtis Stone

Mario Lopez

Dax Shepard

Joe Manganiello

Brandon T. Jackson

David Giuntoli

Jason Sudeikis

Darren Criss

Zachary Levi

Etc. etc. etc. Ok, many of the above aren't necessary A-list celebrities, but they're still pretty. And there have been many other pretty men on the show, but the above is a good sample.

Watching good looking celebrities, male and female, raising money for charity, I guess is quite the turn on!

But in a recent episode, I was a little mesmerized by two celebrity contestants:

Nate Berkus and Rocco Dispirito. Again, not A-list by any means, but these two had some sort of bromance going on that made the episode extra special. Everytime the camera went to the celebrities, I would see what these two were doing. Friendly touching, smiling at each other, arm around the other, leaning on. (Sorry, no pictures except for the one above, so you'll just have to imagine it.) Dare I say - it was kinda hot.

I can't really explain why these contestants caught my attention. (And give me a reason to write a WHOLE blog post!) Rocco is straight, married to a woman, Nate is gay married to a man. Maybe the straight/gay friendship/bromance is especially exciting to me? Maybe I'm jealous and want this type of friendship with a straight guy? Maybe it's a way to denounce homophobia? Rocco cooks, Nate decorates homes and that combination is perfect?

In any event, it was a fun, eye pleasing episode.

BTW, this week's episode (Sept. 1) includes Jeff Dye and Joe Jonas. Hmm. After typing all this out, I guess I have a thing for brunettes. :)


  1. I love Nate Berkus. He is an amazing man. I think he is s fabulous designer and he is so handsome and kind. I love his eyes. I don't know if you are familiar with his story? If not, he was in Sri Lanka with his partner and they were both swept away by the tsunami that occurred in the Indian ocean in 2005. Somehow, miraculously, after being pummeled, they both came to the surface of the water and were together. The water calmed briefly before they were hit again and Nate survived and he felt Fernando's (his partner) hand on his back but then it slipped away. He, Nate, lived through the tsunami and his partner was lost. To hear Nate tell this story (you can see it on you tube, he is interviewed by Oprah Winfrey) is one of the most riveting stories I have ever heard. I can hardly breathe just thinking about, and writing about, his experience. I think he is a compelling and strong human being.

    1. I've heard about Nate's story, but I've never watched him tell it. I will look for it on YouTube. (But from your description, I may have to prepare myself mentally before watching it!!!)

      And oh yes, he has beautiful eyes. :)
