Trevor Knight And David Bradberry Get Engaged “Below Deck”
Just because you’re the gay porn star power couple of the moment doesn’t mean you can’t get engaged on basic cable: On tonight’s episode of Bravo’s “Below Deck,” we meet David Bradberry’s boyfriend, Trevor Knight, who wastes no time by proposing to his boyfriend of two years via Skype.
Not even a full month since the Supreme Court ruled in support of gay marriage, and now two bone-fide gay porn stars (including one who served openly in the Marines) are getting engaged to be married on TV. Change happens fast! Check out my blow-by-blow of this extremely adorable, vaguely historic event after the jump.
It’s David’s birthday, so when Trevor Skypes him (holding balloons), we just assumed it was to wish him a happy birthday:
Meanwhile, a montage of PG images of the absurdly gorgeous couple scrolls across the screen as David explains in a voice-over that his boyfriend is an “independent entertainer”. Awk-ward:
In addition to the balloons and silly hat, Trevor holds up a red velvet cake that’s just darling. (At this point, you can sense that Trev’s starting to get a little nervous):
Suddenly, Trevor pulls a string and a “Happy Anniversary” sign pops open (the two started dating on David’s 24th birthday). The “Happy Birthday” balloons are replaced by “Happy Anniversary” balloons: It’s so sweet that I am willing to overlook the fact that the sign appears to be on dot matrix printer paper. Trevor grows more nervous:
Of course, we’re not done yet. Trevor then grabs a dozen roses (could you just die?!). As he he tells David how much he means to him, he starts to get choked up. With a shaking hand, he pulls one rose out of the vase: There’s a ring hanging from it! He pops the question!
Cut to David, who is blushing profusely and nervously giggling. “You’re insane. Of course,” he says nonchalantly between guffaws:
YES!!!! (Trevor seems relieved!)
Then its is back to work waiting hand and foot on the ship’s entitled, nouveau riche passengers. *Sigh*. Hooray for heteronormativity (And Trevor Knight’s colossal penis.)
