Is Spike-TV’s ‘Blue Mountain State’ the next guilty gay pleasure?

Move over “Jersey Shore,” the new, original comedy series “Blue Mountain State,” may soon boast an even bigger gay following.

The football-themed series focuses on what it’s like being a freshman at national champion Blue Mountain State, and follows three incoming freshman in a big-time, Midwestern college football program.

But there seems to be an underlying homo-erotic theme to “BMS,” begging the question, just who is the show’s target demographic?

Watch this clip and you decide:
P.S., yes, that’s N2N underwear model Alan Ritchson in the lead role.

A little more revealing than what we’ve come to expect from Spike TV — “Blue Mountain State” premiered this week, and airs Tuesday’s at 10 p.m.
