This one happens to be a gay douchebag. In a new interview, Derek, the 21-year-old from Arizona, talks about his time on the Real World Cancun and it's almost painful. I cut a few of the douche-iest parts:
Was it weird putting your life on hold to go on this crazy adventure?
Yeah, because I’m the kind of person that once I start something I don’t want to stop until it’s done. As soon as high school was done I started college. I haven’t really had any breaks to myself and I was like, “If anything, this is going to better my life in a lot of aspects, it’s going to open a lot of opportunities for me, I’m going to meet people out of this, and it’s going to be a crazy ride.” Say The Real World ended in a couple more seasons, that’s like what -- almost 200 people who got to experience something like this? -- some 200 people out of the entire nation, so, to be one of them is amazing.
[Really? As soon as high school was done you started college? How unusual! No one does that! Way to be committed to getting things done!]
The Real World has a long history of having queer people on the show. Did you feel like you were the token queer cast member?
Of course they have had LGBT members in the past, so when they actually picked me I was like, “Oh, I’m the gay guy I guess -- that’s what’s going to be my storyline.” I suspected I would go into this situation with someone who was ignorant and someone who was never really around gay people. So I was like, that’s going to be my worst enemy. But, coming into the house with open arms from everyone made it a lot easier. As described by my roommates, they were like, “Dude, you’re the coolest gay we’ve ever met,” because I’m not the stereotypical gay guy. I actually like to go to straight bars and I like to go to straight things more than I like to go to gay clubs and stuff. I enjoy playing sports and physical sports. I like going to sports games and stuff. So, I’m not your typical like flamboyant gay at all.
[You like "going to sports games and stuff"? Wow. So butch. :: pukes :: Try looking up "internalized homophobia" in the dictionary sometime]
