You’d think it’d been done way before now, but oddly enough it hasn’t: a reality TV contest with bisexual people vying for the love of their life. Or lust, for that matter.
Australian drag star Courtney Act will host Britain’s first bisexual reality TV show, The Bi Life, which will premiere Thursday 25 October in the UK, with possible syndication to international networks.
Indeed, there’s sure to be plenty of drama on ‘The Bi Life’, least of all due to the pansexual nature of its cast. And in this particular series, not only are the contestants allowed to flirt and fuck with each other, they can date outside the villa.
The premise of The Bi Life is simple enough: throw nine goodlooking bisexual individuals on an island and see if they spark… Or turn batshit crazy on one another.

“The sweet thing about this, and something that was instantly noticeable was that it’s not queer people reacting to the straight gaze,” said Courtney to Dazed & Confused. “It’s queer people in a space with each other, not having to explain their identity, and feeling supported.”
If you’re a fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race, you’ll know Courtney Act came top three in Season 7. If were an avid old-school clubber, you’d know her from drag shows in dingy venues across Sydney-town like Arq and the Midnight Shift. And if you’re a straight-down-the-line-don’t-know-my-drag-queens-from-my-transexuals type, allow us to introduce to you a smooth-talking, bold, daring diva… with balls to match.
