Top What?

Bravo keeps making shows that highlight gay jobs -- fashion design, interior decorating, cooking, gym trainers, and now hair stylists. It's the same format for each show. At what point will people get tired of this?

And what's next?? Why stop there?? What about the other gay industries?? Top Escort, Top PornStar, Top Bartender, Top Drag Queen, and of course, Top Actor-slash-Waiter. The Gay Industry possibilities are endless! I basically just provided Bravo with their programming pipeline for the next 6 seasons.

The newest "Top Fest" (that sounds hot!) on Bravo is Shear Genius. I don't understand this show. Who wants to watch a show about cutting hair?? It's not like I can just go out and start cutting peoples' hair, and it's not like I can just up and change my hair style as a result of watching the show, so what's the deal? Maybe they'll at least include some sort of hair product education component to the show. That might help. But other than that, I'm completely uninterested.

I think this show's gonna bomb after the first couple of episodes. At least Project Runway teaches you about clothing and inspires your sense of style. Top Chef gives you new recipe ideas. And Top Design gives you a reason to laugh at every cheesy thing that comes out of Jonathan Adler's mouth. But Shear Genius? I don't know. I guess we'll have to wait and see. Personally, I'd be more interested in watching "Top Escort". I'm sure it'd be "action packed".

  • You know, Oxygen already has a haircut competition show. It's hosted by Lisa Rinna or whatever her name is (the former soap star who's really, really tan, that was on Dancing with the Stars). I forget the name of it, though. I never watched it, it was just on before Janice Dickinson.

    I agree with you that the whole "Top [Some Profession Traditionally Associated With Gay Men]" thing is overdone, but I must admit that I would sooooooooooo watch any or all of "Top Escort, Top PornStar, Top Bartender, Top Drag Queen, and of course, Top Actor-slash-Waiter"!

  • Bravo has to give off that gay odor so profuse that the nelly boys in the midwest can get a whiff and smile as they dream of their successful futures in interior decorating, hairstyling, and fashion.

    Basically anything void of a brain.

    Bravo.

  • Hahahaha, Michael, you kill me. Professions devoid of a brain, huh? Dare I say... "Top Publicist?" aka "Top Clipboard Holder" :)

    "See ya later, Procrastinator!"
