My Campaign to Host an American Version of 1 Girl 5 Gays

Since I've been a major fan of RuPaul's Drag Race since it began, I've seen a lot of commercials for the show that comes on after, 1 Girl 5 Gays. Cut to season 4, when one night, we stayed on Logo a little longer than normal and caught an episode.

Oh. My. God.

I'm obsessed. It's the best show.  A host (say it with me, ALIYA-JASMINE!) interviews a panel of 5 gay men and asks them questions about love and sex.  Fuzzy said that night, "Of course you love this show, it's just a conversation."

We love it so much, that we deleted our Tivo subscription to Conan (sorry Coco, your show stinks) and now tape 1 Girl 5 Gays five nights a week. So now we can get caught up on past seasons, and catch the new episodes on Monday night.

Since this is an MTV show filmed in Canada, I think we need to bring it to the USA, and I should be the host. I love learning about people, and I think that I have what it takes to keep a panel going and engaged.

SO! MTV! Let's film a new version of 1 Girl 5 Gays, set it here in Chicago, and I will be the host. I can help assemble the cast.

I'm even willing to hyphenate my name so it can be really fun for a cheerleading squad to chant in the opening credits.


That would be so cool!! I couldn't get it but you could tape it for me!!! Is Rupaul the host of the one that is already on? Fun!

How do we help. Should we all write letters to Logo? Awesomeness in true talk realness.

Can I just say that this has to be the most beautiful picture of you I have seen? Joyful and just, well, stunning!

Thanks Ashley! What a nice complement! It's by the amazing Johnny Knight: and it's now about 5.5 years old!

Sara--ooh, girl! Maybe we just do our own as a live show?

Trish--It's all just a pipe dream. RuPaul hosts Drag Race, but 1 Girl 5 Gays is hosted by an MTV Canada VJ who is awesome.

Love you all!
