When you thought reality TV couldn't get any dumber, it's "Seriously Dude! I'm Gay!"

Fox sinks to a new low in crass taste. The network has scheduled yet another intelligence-insulting, mind-numbingly bad reality series: Seriously Dude, I'm Gay, a two-hour special, hosted by Amanda Bynum (host of the equally inane The Swan, also on Fox). The Rocket Science Laboratories-produced special is set to air Monday, June 7.

Oh, the premise on this dumb-fest?

Glad you asked!

For one week a pair of straight guys will immerse themselves in "the gay lifestyle." Each will move into separate West Hollywood lofts, complete with three gay roommates, to experience what it's like to live life as a gay man.Each day the guys will complete a challenge that tests their ability to pass for gay. They'll come out of the closet to their best friends; they'll mix, mingle and dance in gay nightclubs; and they'll even go on a romantic blind date with another man.If they master each of their challenges, they'll stand before a panel of judges made up of gay men from all walks of life. This jury of their queers will declare which of the two guys they believe is actually gay...and that guy will win fifty thousand dollars!
I suppose I shouldn't be surprised -- this is the network (and the production company) that gave us My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance last fall.

What you bet they get good ratings on it?
