Boy Meets Boy is an American reality television show in which a gay man met and chose a mate from a group of 15 potential male suitors.
The show featured the twist that the "leading man" did not know that the mix of suitors included both gay and heterosexual men.
The show featured a gay man named James Getzlaff selecting another man to date from among a group of 15 potential suitors, known as "mates".
Helping him choose was his best friend Andra Stasko.
The "controversial" twist was that some of the housemates were gay, while others were straight.
James was not told of this fact until nearly the end of the series' run, and the gay mates were never informed.
