"I Feel Like a Gay
Ninja" - June 9
We have our final 15!
Anyone want a quick refresher course on who they are?
Sure you do...
Johnny (30, Waiter, Las Vegas) - The first of the
maybe to get in. Is he too intense?
Rick (21, Industrial Refrigeration Repair, Bristol,
PA) - He's the guy who had a rock band. Is his rebel
image too strong?
Chris (28, Network Technician, Oklahoma City, OK) -
Body is good, dancing is rough, He needs to smooth it
Josh (21, College Student, Lascassas, TN) - He is one
of the people who needs to beef up to be a beefcake.
Ryan (20, Loan Officer,Independence, OH) - He's got
the muscles, but he has an ego to go with it.
Blake (23, Unemployed, Conway, AR) - He had a good
auditioned, but he has to be more serious.
Steve (19, Credit Advisor, Ludlow, KY) - He also needs
to add beef to his cake and also has to show some
Marco (25, Hospital Staff Assistant, Newark, NJ) -
Less sleaze, More personality.
Brian (28, Cable Technician, Louisville, KY) - The
only 'No' to get in. The face needs to be less
menacing. The moves eed to be better.
Adam (21, Fitness Sales, Fairview, TN) - He's also a
maybe. The reason why? He needs to be noticed and have
more of a personality - but to not let that be
confused with ego.
Sean (23, Cosmetology Student, Philadelphia, PA) -
Nice body. Attitude the size of the liberty bell. Oh
yeah - buy Rachel a cheesesteak.
Bryce (20, Construction Worker, Pampa, TX) - He's the
first one to get in - and he's pudgy.
David (22, Bartender, Dallas, TX) - The last of the
'Maybes'. Can he get through this without being
Tony (26. Personal Trainer/Bartender, Chicago, IL) -
He's the shy, but better looking twin,. He needs to
get a personality.
Terry (26, Bartender, Iowa City, IA) - He's outgoing,
but has to curb it down and he needs to curb the
It's Day 1 of the 25 day competition. Alex is stunned
by the size of the house. He says that the competition
better be ready for him. Johnny is concerned that
there is no TV or Radio, but he is driven to perform
and be on stage, adding that he deserves to be in the
final 7. Rick seems eager to greet everyone, while
Josh, who looks waify, says that he's going to sneak
up on the buffer competitors. Brian is serious,
because he wants to live his life loving his job. 'I
love my body, and I love to take my clothes off.'
As they all file into their new house, Billy welcomes
them and invites them upstairs, where he gives the
usual lecture, He reminds them all that only 7 of them
will be selected for his group. Those 7 will be
performing at the Las Vegas Hilton - and they only
have 25 days to get everything together. The
choreographer is Sharon Ruely, who will be teaching
them the show as the series progresses.
Rick thinks that Sharon is going to be rough - and
he's probably right as she tells them all to be up in
5 minutes with their rehearsal gear. Terry is stunned
by the quickness of how everything is going as she
starts the guys off with their new technique. Sharon's
first impression was the same as what Rachel's
impression was as she is getting the guys warmed up.
'Billy, what were you thinking? This is going to be a
lot harder than I thought.'
As Billy watches, Sharon is putting them through their
first exercises. Billy is the one who's going to be
tough, as he goes after everyone for bad posture, or
movement, or walking like women. Tony best describes
what I'm thinking. 'If this was the best 15 that he
hand-picked, I hate to see the people that he didn't,
because this first rehearsal was horrible.' He rips
into Brian and Johnny, claiming that they can't dance.
Billy is appalled that these people can't even clap in
time, let alone dance together.
Day 2 - The guys start their breakfast with eggs,
toast, sausage and the works. Bryce, who admits that
he has the worst body, knows that he has to kill it to
get in the group. Ryan told Bryce that he would help
him out with his diet. They both need help with the
choreography, as Billy tells them all that they need
to understand the basics of dancing. Hence, Billy
takes them all to...ballet school. At the Brentwood
Academy of Dance, the men are greeted with their own
thongs, tank tops and ballet shoes. Rachel is
wondering why Billy is spying on them taking off their
clothes and putting on their thongs. Billy's response
is to see how they react to it. Suuuuuuure it is,
Billy, that's why you are spying on them and looking
at their naked bodies. Look! A flying Cow!
Rick feels like a 'gay ninja' I sense he'll feel even
gayer when they see their fellow students - teenage
(and younger) women. The instructor comes out and
yells at them to pay attention, which some do and some
don't. Certain people are trying to take this
seriously, while other ones aren't are chatting with
the kids and are being silly. The teacher finally
can't take any of this and leaves.
Billy is taking notes, and when the instructor leaves,
he lets them have it. He explains that the reason why
they are all here is for discipline, and the little
girls are more disciplined than they are. He tells tem
to all be serious, adding that he is taking notes.
When the teacher comes back, the room is silent and
everyone is now paying attention, to the approval of
Billy, who just nods and smiles.
That night, Rick talks that he knows who's going to be
eliminated and he knows he'll be gone before some of
the others, but they will be out too. Nice attitude,
Rick. Bryce says that he is putting his body through
hell to try to make the squad and Terry says that it's
hard. They complain that it's going to be really hard
to transform to strippers. Johnny knows that he needs
to get the dance moves better, and Bryce respects him,
but knows that Johnny isn't getting the dance moves
quick enough. Now we know why he didn't get into Blue
Rick is doing some dance moves and Marco comes in.
They trade dance moves and both make fun of Johnny,
who says that the only thing that he lacks is the
choreography. Uhhh...Johnny...that's sort of
important. Johnny's not the only one who has issues -
David is starting to miss his kids. He talks to Adam,
who says that they will bond and by trusting in each
other, they can get through it together. They will be
each other's barriers of strength, adding that if he
makes it to the top 7, that he can do a lot for his
Day 3 - Billy walks into the rehearsal and we don't
know if he's smiling or wincing. Billy calls Rachel
and says that he has no clue who to eliminate (I do).
Him and Rachel discuss the people on who they are
going to eliminate and why:
Terry - He needs to watch his weight. Bryce - He's
worse than Terry and he isn't losing the weight fast
enough. Johnny - Intense and professional, but 10
steps behind everyone else. Rachel is standing up for
him, but Billy says, 'Do I want to have a show with 7
people who want it or do I want to have a show with 7
people who are going to get it?' Steve - He's gamey
and nervous, but he's going to get it. Josh - He still
has no butt.
We go back to Sharon, and she's looking for people who
can flip. We see a flipping montage, and many of them
can flip. Steve flips everyone out, as he comes back
up wearing nothing but a thong. A blushing Sharon has
to leave and I can see this really hurting Steve (who
is already on Billy's bad list) down the line.
During down time, the guys compare abs. Sean goes
through all of the guys abs while Rick assumes that
Sean is a shoo-in to make the top 7. Sean, meanwhile
is wondering if he is too laid-back to make the group
and maybe he needs to get some personality. Bryce says
that they all think that Sean is the golden boy,
adding that if he doesn't get better and it's down to
him and 7 other chiseled guys, then he's gone. It's
amazing how people perceive each other...
Day 4 - The guys meet Alyma the trainer, who's job is
to get the guys in shape. She tells the guys to take
their shirts off and their shorts up. Alyma picks the
bottom 6 to work out with and sends the rest off. The
6 people - Bryce (of course), Rick, Josh, Steve,
Terry, and Chris. Chris thinks that Alyma is hot, but
maybe he thinks a little less of her as they have to
do suicide sprints. 'Come on, I'm fat and sexy. Why
would I have to work out?' Well, Chris, that fat part
doesn't make you look sexy. She's happy with their
training, but the guys all want to collapse on the
floor when it's over.
Steve is upset that he's falling behind, physically.
His ego that gives him an edge on the moves is
disappearing, and he's homesick. He's thinking about
quitting, but Rick tells him that he is going to
regret it if he quits. Rick asks his group who they
would eliminate. Johnny calls Adam out for being a
brown-noser, and he is offended by it. Johnny is
continues to spread discord and says that the weaker
people can't build up the muscle in 25 days. Tony
breaks up the mood saying that if they are the final
15, then there were tons of shi!s that auditioned and
everyone had a good laugh.
Josh is noting that Johnny is sizing up his
competition - and now he calls out Sean. It's midnight
and Sean wants to go to bed. Johnny continues to yap
and Sean thinks that he is jealous of everyone else,
adding that he wants to go to bed. Terry tells Johnny
that he's acting like a 4 year old and now he and
Johnny is getting into it. Johnny says that everyone
in the house is lacking his energy as he continues to
work out while everyone else retires for the night.
Someone feels threatened, don't they?
Day 5 - The kids come over to see Billy for his
decision. There are many reasons in the world to get
rid of a number of people. It's obviously one of the
bottom 5, as each of them have either physique or
attitude issues. The decision is that one person has
both - Steve, who has to beef up, and yet shows up
wearing only a thong. He gets the heave-ho from Billy,
leaving Johnny (who no one wants to see still there)
Well, that's the first cut. Join us in 7 days to see
who gets cut next.
