I didn’t want to do another blow by blow recap and I just now got a chance to watch the show, but I did want to share some thoughts and give the few of us that watch this a place to share.
First of all I thought all three finalists were worthy of the win. I felt like they were setting me up to be sad when Eboni beat Dino. So I was THRILLED when Dino got the win.
The main thing I wanted to talk about was Dino’s need to please his mother. I’ve seen a lot of this in my younger years as a fag hag. Many, many, many dates with my gay friends where the only thing they every wanted was acceptance and love from their mothers. I’m thrilled that all my younger gay friends are coming up in a time where acceptance is increasing.
I would like to say I have NO IDEA about Dino’s sexual preferences nor to I know him at all or have any reason to speculate. He could be straight as an arrow.
I am simply saying he has the same need for acceptance from his mother as I have witnessed in many a conversation in my lifetime. So it was of particular notice to me that his mother didn’t have much to say about her son. His father did all the talking and seemed like a proud father. I’m hoping maybe she was just camera shy and didn’t really want to be on camera but wanted to be there for her son.
I was thrilled when she whispered in his ear that she was proud of him. I hope that really happened as I don’t believe any conversation on reality show when I don’t see their lips moving.
Anyway, I’m THRILLED for Dino. He seems like such a gentle spirit. I really wanted him to win, but I would have been equally happy with any of these finalists. It was a great season. Thanks for watching with me.
