Queerty Wish List: Neil Haskell

To celebrate the holidays, Queerty is playing Santa to all your favorite folks and asking what they want under the tree/ next to the menorah/ beside the Saturnalia bonfire this year, no Ms. America answers allowed.

After coming in third last year on So You Think You Can Dance?, 21-year-old Neil Haskell has been busying himself with dance films (MTV’s The American Mall) and the off-Broadway musical Altar Boyz. With that sort of work schedule, it’s hardly a surprise the straight Haskell says, “Most of my friends in [New York] are gay.”

Though he says he probably wouldn’t consider doing another reality show, Haskell had no problem speaking with Queerty about what he wants for the holidays. His answer may break your heart.

Someone special; a nice, pretty girl who will put up with my jokes. And a nice girl to kiss and hold on New Year’s.

[Ed. note: so does that count as one gift or two?]

    Oh golly gosh, you’ve changed the layout again.
    so retarded.

  • nikko

    He’s straight??! OMG, he looks as gay as a butterfly!

  • Jaroslaw

    Where do we contact the editors to protest this new layout? The links to them seem to be gone.

    FIRST: Neil was always my FAVE (ooo… besides Travis). I had the biggest man-crush on him. he’s got a great sense of humor as well.

    SECOND: The new layout is a bit awkward and sporadic. there is too much ‘white space’ making it difficult on the eye.

  • faghag

    @Jaroslaw: Just when I was getting used to the last one, they start fucking around with the layout again.
    Give it up, you’ll never be Gawker or Defamer.
    Leave the fucking layout alone!

    Ugh, I have such a crush on Neil. He should be your Morning Goods! Where are those silly candids of him getting sloppy drunk at a party and going streaking on a dare? Cute guys always need to do that…

  • Jake

    I highly respect any straight guy who not only is cool with gay guys but also enjoys hanging out with his gay friends…

    BUT… The only one who doesn’t know Neil is gay is Neil!
    He’s young and hasn’t come to terms with himself yet, give it time.
    My gaydar is finely tuned and is accurate 99.9% of the time :-)
    He’s a Moe alright!

  • Berdie

    Oy…neil is so good looking. And actually appeared to be a really good guy with a decent sense of humor about himself. Another one bites the bust.

    Actually, I think this new platform is kind of cool. Instead of having to do all that scrolling to the bottom of the page just to get to the article you want to see or post a comment on, all we have do here, is click on one of the pics on the right hand side and voila. There you are.

    I also think the white background is nice and clean and makes everything stand out well. Nothing to divert the eye of compete with the attention of the viewer on the subject matter.

    All in all, I think it’s a big improvement over the previous two platforms.

  • alan brickman

    The layout is very clear and user freindly… and He’s about as straight as Blake ….

    Oh, Neil from SYTYCD.

    Always found him adorable.

  • scott

    Yeah, I really dug Neil from SYTYCD. Veeeeeery cute. I thought he was gay but my gaydar sucks. There goes some of my fantasies. :(
