    Yeah, so I know Black gays stan for Karamo Brown and all but I find it disheartening, stereotypical and problematic that non-heterosexual men are still being used as stylists-fashionista-props to help straight people (in this case masculine straight men) look better. Imma pass on this thank you.

    I don't stan for Karamo Brown but I do appreciate what he did during his days on Real World Philly. I was a teenager watching him on TV and he was the first non-stereotypical representation of a black man who happened to be gay on TV for me.

    I don't see a problem with what is being done on the show through the trailer. It is their way of bridging the gap between straight and gay people or just people of varying backgrounds in general. I won't be watching it but if this means a nice and fat paycheck for Mr. Brown then I'm all for it.

    No thank you although I do dig the concept of trying to bring men of different sides of the spectrum together

    My gut reaction to this is......

    I didn't watch the original and I have no intention on watching the reboot. There is nothing new or compelling here just the same old gay and str8 stereotypes and tropes. If they made a show about gay men who work blue collar jobs or in typically masculine career fields I'd be more inclined to watch.

    blk men "stan" for karamo? hilarious. i doubt that's true, but surely many ppl are grateful to have a cultural mirror in the media who's gay. i thought he was mad cute during the 'real world', but haven't kept up w/ his career to know much about him since then.

    anyway, i never heard of the show back in the day. but this wknd, i watched an episode (number 4) of the reboot after reading about their client's compelling story. glad i did b/c i saw my soulmate lol this muscle geek engineer with lots of booty who needed a makeover and assistance in coming out to family/being comfortable with himself. man, they did wonders for him: now he fine. all i gotta do now is move to atlanta, so i can break up him and his cornball dude. #hookmeupkaramo

    Yup, same thing happened to me. I had ZERO interest in watching the show, until I kept hearing about how they helped a discreet gay black dude on one of the episodes. I had to watch it. Like you, I have a weakness for nerdy scruffy dudes too, so I was all for it.

    Don't break up a happy black gay home though. lol. He and his dude just got engaged.

    I actually thought the reboot was pretty good. The Karamo character was not really the fashionista trope it was actually the sophisticated/man/Masculine trope. The character to pushes the protagonist to conquer their fears, stand up for their responsibilities to do and be better.

    I think this edition of the show is so much better than the original...it reveals the kind of age we are living in now...

    Like most in previous comments I had no interest in the show but episode 4 has me thinking where do I need to hang out to find my nerdy engineer who is a whips and chains type freak behind closed doors.
