Is this trans inclusive? At least one of the boys better be female and at least one non binary with he/they pronouns.

R4 is right, the femminess is off the scale. Are they beaming this in from the 1990s? Guys need to be at least a little manly to be hot. What are they thinking?

Sorry, but at least three of them could pass for female-to-male transsexuals. Also, the producers seem to be trying to amplify every single gay stereotype imaginable to the umpteenth degree.

This doesn't look like something that any self-respecting gay man would want to watch. In fact, R41 is right: this is a collection of best friend prototypes for every frumpy 25-to-45 year old admin assistant, who fancies herself a revolutionary because she 'is down with the gays'.

It’s in the show’s easy balance of the basic and the specific that it most succeeds, conversations over who is top or bottom casually mixed with inane flirting over cheap wine. At a cautious eight episodes, it’s unlikely to infect the nation in quite the same way as the woozy, all-consuming Love Island but it’s a fun and grounding reminder that we all deserve a chance to graft around the pool while a Dua Lipa song plays in the background. Luv is luv.

[quote]None of the BBC channels are “little channels” in the UK

BBC3 and BBC4 are both little channels.

BBC3 was "retired" in 2016 and went to an online only "channel" but was resurrected last year as an option to watch live with a schedule, partly because of the success of Drag Race so people could watch it "live" without using on demand services.

The BBC understands that viewing habits have changed and is trying to make shows for younger people that they can watch at their own leisure. Yes this is cheap and trashy as fuck, but it ticks diversity boxes and clearly cost next to nothing to produce.

BBC One have a new series of Survivor starting soon. It ran for a couple of series in the early 00s on ITV but didn't do well. After the success of The Traitors they'll be expecting another hit.

Faggy femmes wearing rainbow coloured attire, squawking about who is top or bottom. We all know the answer to that one.

Extra points for any that have their nails painted.

A truly groundbreaking show would be to have handsome, masculine gays without a trait (taint) of fagginess, participate. But that handsome, straight MAN would go on a freak show like this.

I do beg your pardon, R59? So according to you, handsome, masculine gay men are straight by association? That doesn't make any sense whatsoever.

R14/R56 much of the appeal of ‘Love Island’ is that it’s still very much a popularity game-within-a-game, involving set challenges that rely on audience interaction, perks to be won, and a bigger cash prize at the end for the winner, making for a competitive atmosphere and lots of drama rather than everyone just nebulously ‘looking for love’ or whatever. It’s more akin to ‘I’m a Celebrity, Get Me out of Here!’ in that aspect.

Another factor explaining its success is the contestants are selected only if they’re conventionally hot according to their bio sex, and have general appeal visually/physically to a mass audience. People like to look at sexy young people, for whatever psychological reason. So it’s blissfully easy to watch, but not boring or sexless. In this age of YouTube having eyes in every home no matter how mundane, it’s no longer enough to just isolate people in a house or on an island and roll camera—there needs to be more incentive to watch, sizzle on the steak.

And yes, there have been a few instances of same-sex attractions, though in the U.K. at least they’re rarely officially coupled in that configuration (there was a bi female coupling for half a series years ago, and it came to nothing) because producers say the logistics are too difficult to work out with gays & straights mixed. The titillating ‘bromances’ are a kind of baiting, but it’s clearly not too calculated or malicious, just banter.

^forgot to add a final point that many LI alum go on to do OF, yachting and escorting, modelling, hosting etc. And some of the most rewatched clips of the show online are the infra-red fumbles and fingerings the contestants share. To appear on LI is more about building a brand and getting a chance to fuck someone hot that it is about romance or connection.

So again there’s a hustler incentive and a raunch factor underlining the whole show that productions like ‘I Kissed A Boy’ lack. Never underestimate the public taste for smut.
