Episode two of The Bi Life sees Michael getting lucky, plus there’s a surprise new arrival in the villa.
In the second installation of The Bi Life, Michael stole a first kiss with Sam, who he got to know on a blind double date with cast member Ryan, at a party back at the villa.
Sam was originally matched up with Ryan, while Michael was paired with bodybuilder Charli,
But both Michael and Ryan admitted that they found more chemistry with the other’s date, and so swapped dates at the end of episode party.
Hosted by Shane Jenek and his drag persona Courtney Act, The Bi Life follows a group of “sexy singletons” as they live, party and date in a villa in Barcelona.
And there was a new arrival in the villa in Thursday’s show—London-based photographer Irene.
The 23-year old identifies as pansexual, but said she has “predominantly lived as a straight girl, just because it’s easier.”
She added: “People assume I am [straight], so it just happens that way.”
“I will date your personality, I won’t date your body,” she continued, adding: “How do you even know if they’re bisexual, lesbian, or however they identify?”
Elsewhere, Matt went on his first date with a woman called Fredi, who works for an airline.
Although he was clearly besotted, sparks didn’t fly for Fredi.
Matt was left disappointed after Fredi didn’t come along to the party at the end of the episode.
Leonnie also got to go on her first date with a man called Jamie, a semi-professional footballer, where they discussed her unsuccessful attempt at being a vegetarian (“I always end up with, like, a sausage in my mouth”).
However, both of them decided that they were better off as friends.
The first episode of The Bi Life last week saw Michael go on his first ever date, and Daisie’s trust issues coming back to haunt her after her date Adam checked out fellow contestant Leonnie.
The ground-breaking series is the first reality dating show for bisexuals in the UK.
And it’s been praised on social media for its representation of the bisexual community.
“Visibility is the most important thing for the forward movement of LGBT people in society,” one Twitter user wrote after the first episode aired last week. “I commend @EOnlineUK and @courtneyact on you’re new show #TheBiLife for providing that .”
