I guess you can get that from cosmetics, too.

Tim Gunn has made no secret of the fact that he’s a gay man living a celibate lifestyle. It’s one thing to hear the phrase “celibate lifestyle” and brush it off, but it’s entirely another to hear the man admit to ABC‘s The Revolution that he hasn’t had sex in 29 years.

Yep, 29 years.

The last time Project Runway host Tim Gunn got dirty with another person, the Iran-Contra affair was still four years off. Ronald Reagan was a new president.

He said that the celibacy was brought about by a previous relationship that, in conjunction with the rising threat of AIDS in the gay community, just sorta turned him off of sex for the next thirty years or so.

Perhaps if we took our filthy minds off of sex for a scant thirty years, we would be able to write that novel we kept putting off, start that artisanal granola company that we’ve always dreamed of, or maybe even get popular catch phrase like “Make it work.”

My catch phrase would be “GIMME A HANDJOB!”

See? Catchy!

5 Reality Shows That Allow The Contestants To Keep Their Dignity http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/5-reality-shows-that-allow-the-contestants-to-keep-their-dignity/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/5-reality-shows-that-allow-the-contestants-to-keep-their-dignity/#comments Wed, 14 Sep 2011 23:00:03 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=228440 These are the most-respected reality shows, which is tantamount to the distinction of being the tallest midget.

While many thought reality TV to be a passing fad, or even something to tide us over during the recent writer’s strike, it’s become clear that the genre isn’t going anywhere.

It’s durability is made all the more amazing by the fact that virtually every show adhering to reality TV conventions makes its stars or contestants look like giant assholes or morons. However, there are exceptions to this rule. Not coincidentally, the exceptions are held in higher regard than their baser brethren.

For these five entries, you can expect a cringe-free hour of TV, which is pretty much the most praise you can lavish on reality television shows.

5. Top Chef

If you get yelled at, it’s because you didn’t cook something well. Not because you made out with a pastry chef in the hot tub or stepped on too many people’s toes. The drama is, by and large, in the contest, rather than the characters. Historically, being a jerk or an angel doesn’t hurt or help you; what you do in the kitchen does. So the stars seem to be themselves, without adopting some weird Real World/Road Rules Challenge persona.

Further, no one is out to embarrass one another. Contestants work together, and the judges are quite matter-of-fact. Sometimes painfully so (e.g. Tom Colicchio). While drama and conflict might be the name of the game in reality television, this show makes the competition the star, allowing the participants to maintain dignity.

Unless they cook with scallops. This is Top Chef, not Top Scallop.

4. Project Runway

Project Runway allows its stars to walk away in one piece for two separate reasons. Firstly, it’s a show on which the contestants are creating something. If you’re a jerk or flirt or ditz and you are able to craft a beautiful gown or creation, more than likely all will be forgiven. It’s not like you’re a real housewife whose biggest accomplishment was knocking back a bottle Pinot Grigio during lunch.

Secondly, considering the cast of characters on Project Runway, unless you sprout lavender wings and a swastika starts glowing on your forehead, you’re probably going to seem like a well-adjusted, sane person, all things considered.

It’s easy to appear like a bastion of self-respect and composure next to the likes of Christian Soriano and that dude with the backwards neck tattoo that he can read it in the mirror, but these contestants distinguish themselves further by creating some pretty amazing stuff.
