None of them. All of them.
Go elsewhere, Logo publicist.
Like the girl, the gays not so much
The Caucasian Trinidadian guy, the Newfoundlander hipster, J.P. and the Jamaican guy who also does drag are the funniest/most interesting. The others all seem to try way too hard.
The goateed muscle guy who turned on the entire cast in a woe-is-me session after being chastised by one of the guys after using the word 'retard' seems to be a tad too touchy/thin skinned.
I don't like the girl at all. The purpose of the show is to ask the guys personal questions, she ruins it with her childish giggling when they talk about blow jobs, rimming or anything related to sex. Grow the fuck up. Like she's never sucked a cock in her life.
JP, Jonathan S (I've grown accustomed to his facial expressions), Thomas, Santos (never less than memorable).
I miss black Jonathan, Dean, Alex, and Simon (hubba, hubba).
I havent watched in awhile. Simon was so hot, just a great looking low key guy. I also loved Jamaican Jonathan and JP.
What's the name of the 1/2 black dude who's a nurse?
[quote]What's the name of the 1/2 black dude who's a nurse?
Jake, and he is HOT.
Phillip (the heavy one) is one of the most annoying, with his preening ways and Madonna obsession (I sometimes think he's the MadLoon who posts here from time to time).
Yerxa is sexy with his hairiness and deep tan, but he can be a prick with his self righteous attitude and smarminess.
Jake (the nurse) is gorgeous and seems to be a pretty cool guy.
JP is funny and sarcastic, and he's cute too.
Santos is hilariously beyond weird. I've never seen anything quite like him.
Jonathan S. is ultra f-mme, but he is funny at times. Not my type, though.
Black Jonathan was a good guy too. Cute face.
David can be annoying at times with his spastic facial expressions and snippy attitude, but I sometime get a laugh off of him.
Love Gerry and his wackiness and hot, buff bod.
Can't stand Andrew with his prissiness and shit-starting. Gives gay men a bad name with his bullshit.
Ian Lynch is cute. I'd love to see his supposedly nine-inch cock.
Juan is usually stoned, but love him too.
Can't stand the uber-annoying Matt Barker. The kid is always fabricating stories.
They all look like they're sitting on cauliflower-sized anal warts. Greasy whores.
Fail, R1. Logo doesn't have enough money to hire publicists.
Is Matt Barker obese yet? He gained a substantial amount of weight at one point.
Yerxa used to be a total cunt, but he's starting to mellow. He must have many insecurities - I think he's starting to work them out, though.
I never understood how people found Dean attractive. He's a bitch with squarely average looks. The others' obsession with him must be a Canadian thing.
J.P.'s unfocused sarcasm bothers me, and Matt Barker is simply worthless. Jason Yantha bothers me too, although that's simply because he reminds me of a jerk I used to know.
My least favorite, though, is black Jonathan. I remember how he'd say that he believed in being good to people, but then attacked Santos simply for being weird. Total hypocrite.
I love David - something about his huge nose does it for me, and I like his cheerfulness. The others are pleasant enough.
When did Simon leave and why? I liked him.
I agree with R4. Jasmine is annonying with her giggling and disgusted face at hearing about sex acts.
I like pretty much all of them. I enjoy the camaraderie they have. David Robert and fat Phillip I find phony and annoying. Andrew has an "I'm better than you" attitude which I don't like. Alex, I'm glad he's gone, brought little to the show.
Several of the cast members - Yerxa and Dean come to mind - HATED Simon, R14. I imagine he got tired of being shut out, and just stopped participating.
R15 I didn't know that. Did they even acknowledge Simon left? I remember and saw the farewell episodes of Alex and Dean.
They probably hated Simon because he was hotter than them and had a NICE personality. Jealous cunts.
Actually, I'm with R1.
I can't stand that vapid crap, any show, any season.
And I wanted to! Now I have to change the damn channel after Drag Race.
I don't think they did, R16. His niche of 'tall, pale white guy' has been filled twice over with the recent addition of Max and Dillon, so I don't think we'll be seeing him in future episodes either.
My 79 yar old mother who lives in Utah asked me, "so what's with this 1 girl 5 gays" show?" I just said I have no idea. ...I took the easy way out.
Ian "9-Inch" Lynch. Hands down. (Or should I say on.) And down my throat. And up my ass. And anywhere else he wants to put it. That is one hot man!
Why hasn't the Lynch pic been leaked online yet? It seems like every cast member has it now.
IT'S 8 INCH LYNCH NOT 9 INCH!
No, hon. It's 9 inches. Trust me.
r23 is correct.
I like Thomas and Ish.
This show is an embarrassment to all concerned, but some more than others.
Asking questions about their personal lives? How many different ways can you ask some queeny gay men if they swallow or shave their hole?
It is a breakthrough for gays in the way that Jersey Shore was for Italians. I am both.
I am Canadian, in the arts and with you know, some recognizable talent. Canada can be as tacky as the US any day and my little brother can watch 1 Girl and 5 gays and ask me what is wrong and how old are these little girls? Not as young as they seem, bro. Teachable moments.
I am not talking bout who is hot, because no self respecting gay man would be on that show. These boys will never score Jersey Shore money or even Hoarders, they are doing it for the free booze and tweets, and to get laid. Embarrassing. But it is a mainstream show in Canada, so they are kind of like the house wives, with three to a bachelor apartment.
Just cuz I know, both of the Jonathon's are great guys, and Simon is a neurotic sweetheart. Forget the rest. I am serious.
If Jake is gorgeous then I am stunning. He is one boring guy and very screwed up. He has a job. He actually good be very DL, cuz he seems like he has something going on, but is a self loathing hypocrite, who cannot integrate his sexual desires and tastes with his bourgeois aspirations. This equals a life of unhappiness and feigned superiority.
Black and leather men can do just bout anything they want to him. I don't judge. But he does. He is a dirty boy and cannot reconcile himself. Jake is not a poster boy for a balanced gay professional or for safe sex.
Santos is scary but legit. The rest are harmless or ridiculous. These are not men and can't excuse themselves as boys. Hideous to most everyone gay in Canada. They are mocked on the Streets of Toronto. Skeevy.
Yerxa = the embodiment of every single pretentious, Silverlake-living, "Indie music/movie-watching only", hipster gay that I have ever met in L.A. Awful.
What do you mean "don't be JP".
It's interesting how you like a lot of my faves.
It was charming for one episode. It very quickly deteriorated into a contest for "most obnoxious", which Andrew and Matt Barker won in a tie. I mostly watched it to see Jake, who is genuinely sexy and slightly interesting. Ian Lynch is a parody of some kind...his "straight-acting gay" routine was never convincing, and he seems oddly asexual. As do many of them. The show died once they decided to heavily feature Andrew (largely because he was sleeping with one of the show's producers, who has since become a panelist). Biggest douchebag in Canada, he almost makes Matt Barker seem human. In all of Canada, these were the most interesting gay people they could find??? Really?
Your rant about Jake is revealing. Very. Because he's a nurse and promotes safe sex he can't be into leather? You're sad. And, I'm guessing, racist.
R30, maybe these were just the most desperate gays they could find who willingly wanted to be on the show? Most gay men have integrity and actually would turn down a show like this.
I really liked Alex.
I disliked Ian -- I also thought he seemed kind of repressed and self-loathing -- until one episode where he was talking about being a top and he blurted out, "I love ass." Hot!
I love Santos too. Has anybody seen the episode where he wore the black veil and red lipstick? As Matt Barker would say, he's gone full nelly.
[quote]Jake is not a poster boy for a balanced gay professional or for safe sex.
Are you saying he's a barebacker despite what he says publicly?
The thing about Santos is this...he's real. As bizarre and disconcerting as he can be, he's not presenting a facade. Which is not true of anyone else on that show.
R37...oh dear. Oh dear.
He's as cute as a cancer diagnosis. Clearly you were so busy staring at hisz fish face that you never heard a word he said. His admission that he'd falsely accused an ex of physical abuse, after having had the ex arrested, was the icing on the cake. A dreadful little monster with a brain like a rug burn.
R31 My "rant" about Jake was meant to be revealing, and if you were as bright as say, R34 you would understand that.
I am not a racist, my bf of 9 years is black, and I have never been called mary.
Philip is the most repugnant to me. The bitchy, hyper-[childish epithet posted by a bigoted tool] mincing and overdramatic reactions to everything are grating. He strikes me as having a mean, ugly soul.
Santos is my favorite panelist. He is authentic in his own weird way. He doesn't put on the bitchy aggressiveness of the others, and seems comfortable in his own skin.
People who watch this crap are trash.
Wow, this just got juicy. I think we have a couple of insiders here!
I think they should change the format so that they discuss one to three questions in-depth. Maybe add a lesbian or two now and then to shake things up.
It would also be great if they had a (hot) straight guy in place of Aliya Jasmine. It would add a new level of eroticism and a fresh perspective.
2 Girls 1 Cup was more original.
Only twinks on tina and losers watch this show.
Jonathan S is one of my favorites. Total queen but he seems totally genuine and quite smart.
Hate Andrew - complete racist and total airhead. Called Juan "The Mexican" and talked about black people liking fried chicken and watermelon in front of Jonathan Nathaniel.
Juan's not usually my type but he's adorable and his accent is kind of hot. Good taste in movies as well.
Meanwhile, I eat old people's excrement.
Meanwhile, I wipe back to front.
Is Juan still a panelist?
R37 was just being funny, r39.
But I do agree with you about Barker - he's vile. He usually looks like he's about to bite someone's head off with those giant teeth.
Aliyah-Jasmine should win some sort of prize for believably looking interested in all their inane chat and for deftly moderating overall. Can't be easy.
The naked show was funny.
R45 Yes! I wish the host was a straight man. This Jasmine chic is too immature. Don't host a show about provocative topics then get all shocked and embarrassed by the content. Her reactions take time away from the guys answering the questions. I read an interview with AJ (can't spell her first name), she said that they spend about 3 hrs taping before it's edited to down to fit the 30 minute format. Why??? It make the show too choppy and part of the conversation is missing. They really need to focus on a set number of questions and allow everyone on the panel to answer before moving on to the next topic.
I can't stand Andrew, Andrew's BF, Matt B or Phillip.
[quote]I think they should change the format so that they discuss one to three questions in-depth. Maybe add a lesbian or two now and then to shake things up.
They've already done that...
I used to like Juan, but he's gone from being adorable to insufferable.
Dean and Yerxa are my favorites, especially Dean because he reminds me of a friend of mine I don't get to see as often as I like.
I think Ish has borderline personality disorder.
I agree, R56. He thinks too highly of himself these days.
Why do you think that about Ish, R57? Just curious.
Gerry has sexy nipples, but he creeps me out. Out of all the new people this season, Jason Yantha is my least favorite.
[quote]Love Gerry and his wackiness and hot, buff bod.
You can have his bod anytime. He is a stripper. He comes sometimes to NYC and dances at Adonis.
I can't even stand the previews for this show. The hostess' vocal fry also gets on my nerves. Am I supposed to be shocked/proud that we have a show where gay men talk about sex most of the time?
[quote]I think they should change the format so that they discuss one to three questions in-depth.
That was the original format. Check out the first few episodes.
Haven't any of you whores fucked any of them?
Like: JP and Dean
I initially didn't like Dean, but I think he mellowed and grew up a bit as the series progressed.
Yerxa OTOH, is still a dick.
Didn't Yerxa used to be fat?
I like Jonathan. It seems to be conventional wisdom around here that queeny guys are invariably hissing and vicious. Jonathan is funny and sharp, but he also strikes me as being one of the genuinely nicest guys on the panel.
I like Yerxa and Dean, and they are smarter than most of the guys on the show (not a particularly huge accomplishment), but are not nearly as smart (or as cool) as they think they are. Very Toronto in that regard. Whenever they feel challenged or insecure they get mean very quickly. Dean can be especially wearying when he's trying (too hard) to seem profound or enlightened, and they both are waaay to treacly about their friendship.
I agree with Yerxa's view of Jake. I think he's kind of a cat. Pretty but basic and not particularly nice (when's he not being petted).
I don't really like anyone on the panel to be honest. They all seem pretty shallow perverted. JP seems to be popular with the posters on this thread, but I feel like he's a know-it-all who can be a bit of a tart. Andrew is an asshole, but I'm pretty sure he's crafted that persona to be the villain.
If I had to choose the one I like, I'd say white Jonathan. He's funny and witty. Doesn't take himself too seriously and his anecdotes are hysterical. He's the only one who has not rated my nerves yet.
After awhile, all these guys on the panel become unbearable. I guess when you overshare every aspect of your sexual life on TV, there's really not much left of the part that is private and alluring.
Jake is known to have a GIGANTIC penis.
The ratio of gay guys to girls on the show is too low.
They just did an "If the guy next to you was a Janet Jackson song, which one would he be?" catergory.
Does anyone know why they're retiring the original cast?
Dean reminds me of SNL's Stefan. He's cute when his hair is short.
Gerry is my favorite and the only one I am really going to miss.
They're retiring the original cast because they've started repeating themselves. (Not entirely their fault, some of the questions have been repeated as well.)
Santos was more like Stefon I think, R73
Dean and Yerxa were pseudo-elitist cunts. I say 'pseudo-elitist' because neither of them was particularly accomplished or knowledgeable about the world. They were the smartest in their tiny cohort, and became convinced that that made them smarter than anyone else, age and expertise notwithstanding.
If ever a guy needed to be decked across the chin, it's Yerxa.
Dean and Yerxa were actually my favorites.
Aliya-Jasmine Sovani will never be heard from again.
I know JP. He came out late and was a homophobic asshole in university, then continued to be a homophobic asshole while hooking up with guys at parties. Hard to to take him seriously when I remember calling my friend fag and queerbait every time he walked by.
I also know Juan. Under his clothes he's insanely hairy. His Dad is rich, but Juan alienated all his friends and was never the sharpest tool in the box. He went to York for film, but is doing what with that education? He's having immigration problems too, and is in danger of having to leave the country.
I know Jonathan. A colder, bitchier, more vicious prisspot queen you will not meet. He's got acting talent, but you never see him acting. We share an ex who told me after sex, while they were still hard and out of breath, Jonathan would clean up with moist towelettes and be dressed.
Matthew Santos is a mess. Jake Sauvage sent his own nudes to Is anyone Up and then fake cried his way into everyone's hearts. The rest are a motley crue. They don't get paid well (or at all, for most of the show's run) and all work retail at Lulu Lemon or Starbucks.
Every person I've listed above (particularly Santos, JP, and Juan) have developed serious coke habits, and after creating dramatic scenes at events like Fashion Week and Capital Pride have quietly been dis-invited from the social functions MTV Canada sends the cast out on. Eyewitnesses (and I am one) saw them snorting en masse out in the open. The only time they are seen at events in Toronto is when they're high drunk, and being obnoxious and pushy attendees. Ask yourself why they haven't been able to get gigs elsehwere
Of them all, Jonathan Nathaniel (who had the good sense to leave) is the only who has been able to leverage being on the show into something else. He's had several films play the festival circuit, both as actor and producer.
That's awesome dish, R78. Anything else? And where are these Jake nudes? He seems like he has an awesome body.
What about Ian Lynch? He seems less than stable.
Whoops, I thought you meant half-black Jake from the show. Googled Jake Sauvage and, um, nevermind.
[quote] Jake Sauvage sent his own nudes to Is anyone Up and then fake cried his way into everyone's hearts
Link to nudes?
How come David Robert disappeared? I thought he'd be the last to leave the show.
What has this Jake Sauvage got to do with 1G5G. I also thought you meant Nurse Jake.
[quote]What about Ian Lynch? He seems less than stable.
I suspect self-loathing issues -- religious, proud of being non-stereotypical, etc.
I don't like the new girl.
Ian Lynch does not have 8 inches, he has 6. Average and nothing to be ashamed of.
What he should be ashamed of are his occasional forays into stand up comedy. Boring, unfunny, and can't seem to draw more than 10 people to a set.
I didn't like the new girl initially, but I've come to like her.
The giggling pair, Max and Dylan are purely there for their looks. They bring nothing else to the table apart from vapidity.
Should really just be called "6 girls, but one with an actual vagina." Repugnant show.
This thread is getting GOOD.
Dean, Simon, and Jake are the ones I liked the most.
Dean- Cute & sweet IMO, but sometimes aloof & bitchy, it is his friendship with Yerxa the mega cunt that alienated him from the group. It is obvious to me that he & Simon had a thing & it did not end well.
Simon- Handsome & funny, but could come off as a bit of a douche.
Jake- The only negative thing I can say about him is he was a bad dresser. Yerxa was obviously jealous of him. I would love to have a guy like him.
Andrew- A cunt, but he made me laugh a few times, and he only told the truth most of the time.
Phillip, Alex, & Santos- annoying as fuck.
Gerry- Annoying but cute.
Matt Barker & David Robert- fake as hell, and just playing for the cameras.
JP & Ian- Cute & likable, but both can be a bit annoying sometimes.
Juan- Adorable, but wasted much of the time.
Both Jonathans were ok, white Jonathan was hysterical.
Yerxa- Cunt extraordinaire.
I definitely won't miss Phillip either. When he would talk about his sex life, it was revolting.
Phillip can be totally annoying. Love Jake's sexy ass. Yerxa can be quite a cunt, but he is sexy with his hairy self. Jonathan is ultra fey but cool. Both Jonathan's actually. Lynch is a cutie. Matt Barker is a liar and an attention whore. Gerry is hot with a hot bod, but I can see how he is a bit much for some people's tastes. Santos is on another planet, and is fabulous for it. Andrew is a cunt and revels in it, which is why he grates my nerves. Juan was baked several times, but he could be cute every so often. I liked JP's sarcastic wit. He's also taller than I thought he was.
All that aside, there will be a new cast of gays coming soon, so we'll be regrettably saying bye bye to the boys soon.
So, what do we all think of the DEGRASSI chick who replaced AJ?
Shit I got Ian and Simon mixed up!!!
Ian= funny & handsome, but kind of a douche at times, might have had a thing with Dean.
Simon= Sweet & shy. Very cute too.
Yerxa was a cunt to Simon solely because at a gay parade sweet & shy Simon did not wave back to him. Yerxa is vile & Dean should realize how toxic he is and cut him loose IMO.
Juan was adorable until HE started to think he was adorable. He also revealed a thoroughly unlikeable side where he thinks he's more educated and smarter than others. He even admits his "condescending" side.
Juan always sounds like he has cotton in his mouth. Is that because he's inebriated?
I have friends who know several cast mates quite well. I've heard some things, but it just wasn't vey interesting gossip.
I loved Simon. I bet he looked great naked. The others threw him some serious shade, though - I think they may have hounded him off the show.
Tell us anyway, R96.
Not that there's anything wrong with it, but do they all decide to shop at a thrift store before airing the show? Are there restrictions on what they wear (no logos, designer brands, etc.) hence the stuff they wear on the show? Or is this some type of Toronto thing?
R99, they're all broke. 20s, retail/baristas, and it may come as a surprise to you MTV Canada pays them less than peanuts (not even union scale). It's not like they have lucrative endorsements lined up.
I travel a lot for work, and when I'm out of Toronto, it stupefies me how many think these are cool nice guys living fabulous lives. Most of them are snotty vapid cokeheads with no friends leading sad lives. R90 and others: they're *all* acting for the cameras.
Also saw Matt Barker's name on this thread. His club nights here were a total joke, with more people behind the bar than on the dancefloor. Another one with no education or prospects. R86 is correct about Ian "6 Inch" Lynch. Nurse Jake is nice enough, but again, vapid.
Any other questions?
Logo wants to kill the show here in the US by putting it on at 1am or 2am or not at all. I liked the show at 10:30pm on Mondays. Last year, Logo changed from focused on gay content to whatever and now we are seeing that put into action. All the gay shows are run from 12am to 10am. The rest of the day is old movies or reruns of Roseanne or Golden Girls.
Do you know more about Simon, R100? Also, was Gerry really as skeezy as the others intimated? They made him sound like a date rapist on several occasions.
I thought this show was aimed at fag hags who think they're "in the know", like drag brunch. Sad that y'all care so much about this pathetic bunch.
Sadder that you cared to comment.
Don't care for Juan or his speech impediment.
Can't begin to figure out what appeal Dean has for viewers or the other cast members who fawned over him. He such a skinny and greasy little weasel with the attitude of a frostbitten cunt.
Yerxa I agree with about 1/2 the time and about 1/2 the time I want to smack him hard, especially when he and Dean would get on their inexplicable high horse.
JP and Jason Yantha are fine. Gerry is ditzy but the hot bod makes up for it, he's like the hooker with a heart of gold.
I like both of the Jonathans and Ish. Nurse Jake is awfully happy to be him, but I can't say I blame him.
Ian Lynch and David add fun to the show. Phillip sometimes, but I don't want to hear about his sex life either.
I groan whenever Santos or Matt Barker are on. No thanks to either one.
Apparently, I'm in the minority in that I liked Alliyah Jasmine. I'm warming up to the new girl; she seems like a good egg but she's so mainstream nice I get embarrassed for her over what gets discussed.
For those railing against the show - it's a quick & sometimes entertaining 20-minute diversion when I'm folding laundry on the weekend. NBD.
I would like Ish if he would ground his speaking voice and stop it breaking. He's not 13 anymore.
Gerry has a surprisingly disappointing ass (based on when he showed it while wearing a jockstrap).
Jason Yantha bothers me. He thinks his shit doesn't stink. He and Andrew are perfect for each other - I predict an explosive break-up two or three years down the road.
Ish has calmed down a lot. When he first started appearing, he gave off hints of a serious personality disorder like BPD.
And I agree about Jason Yantha. He has a lot of unearned arrogance.
Is Ish the one who claimed to have fucked L.L. Cool J.?
I find it unutterably sad that so many on this board watch this show, and worse, know so much about these guys. You have GOT to get out more. MUCH more.
And yet here you are, r10. Ironic, no?
Every last one of them are cringe or barfworthy. Thanks for the dish, R100.
Ew kill them with fire
Ugh, last night's episode was ROUGH. The cast was Philip, Santos, Jason Yantha, Kiel, and Yerxa (even though I like him, I know others don't). It was the most obnoxious cast they've ever put together.
Santos is the most changed (for the good) and Philip (for the bad). This cast is certainly worn out so will be interesting to see the new guys.
When is the new cast coming on? They claim this summer and here it is late August and still no new cast...
The preview for next week looked like it will be a farewell episode, r116. I assume they will do more than one to get the whole cast. Now if we could get the uncensored nude episode...
[quote] Now if we could get the uncensored nude episode..
I felt sorry for Max. If we got to see his apparently impressive dick, it would of offset the sorry state of his flat ass.
Thanks r117, I've got last night's episode recorded. And I agree about the nude show. Surely there are some leaked photos out there!!!
I was surprised when Yerxa said he's American on one episode. Did anyone else catch that?
And I loved Aliya Jasmine! The new girl is okay.
Both Max and Dillon have unattractive and underdeveloped personalities. They are poster children for dullards who coast on their looks.
Whatever happened to Dean? Haven't seen him a long time and wasn't on the big anniversary show.
He moved to NY and works for a gossip site (Gawker?)
Dean went up in my estimation when it was revealed that his boyfriend is on meds for depression.
Why's that, R124? It's not like he was on meds for schizophrenia. A lot of people struggle with depression, especially gays. I like Dean, but it doesn't make him a saint for dating someone on SSRIs.
[quote] it doesn't make him a saint for dating someone on SSRIs.
I didn't write that it did, I wrote he went up in my estimation.
For much of the series, he portrayed himself as rather fickle when it came to guys. The boyfriend stuff made a difference to how he came across to me.
Dean was such a petulant cunt. He was also nowhere near as attractive as the other cast members believed. Are the people so ugly in Canada that Dean was considered handsome? He was an overgrown elf with perma-lemon mouth.
Perhaps he looks better in real life.
I liked Dean, he just had a very sardonic personality IMO. He reminds me of a gay male version of Daria.
I thought Dean was way hot, especially with his hair long...
Dean is cute, but when he was on the show he looked like he bathed only semi-regularly.
R131, which makes me want to bury my nose in his pits/crotch/ass...
Any word on the new cast yet?
Is there a new cast???
I haven't paid any attention to this show at all, I forgot it was on! I can ask around about new cast members. Hopefully I will (also) know someone from this cast.
Anybody who could find these eye rolling, narcissistic,nelly queens attractive has absolute SHIT for taste.
[quote]Any other questions?
Would you put Nurse Jake and Ian Lynch with the obnoxious cokeheads?
What's Ish's family background? What's black Jonathan doing now? Is David Robert the goody two shoes we see on the show?
Do you know if some have hooked up with fellow panelists?
So, Nurse Jake is is (allegedly) a barebacker? And Ian Lynch religious? And the early episodes of the first season had a smart, calm, ivy-league educated redhead (Shawn?) WHET him?
