Playing it Straight
Playing it Straight is a reality show where one woman spends time on a ranch with a group of men, in an attempt to discern which of them is homosexual and which of them is heterosexual. All of these men pretend to be heterosexual. She goes on individual dates with the men, as well as engaging in group activities with them. Over the course of the episodes, she votes to eliminate the men she believes to be gay.
At the end of the show she must choose one man. If he is heterosexual man they split the prize money, if he is gay then he recieves all the money (and the woman recieves nothing).
The show was first broadcast in America on the Fox Network and premiered on March 12, 2004. The program was set on a Nevada ranch and Jackie (no last name given) spent time with 14 men with a chance to win $1 million. It was hosted by Daphne Brogdon and official cancelled after 3 episodes 2004 due to low ratings.
