Call it the Magic Mike effect: Rumor has it two male strippers will be on the next season of The Amazing Race. Jaymes Vaughan and James Davis, who both work at Chippendales Las Vegas, are supposedly teaming up to battle other duos on the show. No confirmation on the boys’ sexuality, but Vaughan was just spotted at Temptation Sundays, the Luxor’s weekly gay pool party. Also on board for TAR: A-List homos Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell, a.k.a. The Fabulous Beekman Boys. The new season—which also includes dating monster-truck drivers, identical twins and a double amputee—will debut in the fall. [Vevmo

Trevor Donovan—and his character, gay West Beverly graduate Teddy Montgomery—will be returning to the CW’s 90210 for at least the first two episode’s of the show’s fifth season this fall. In the Season Four finale, Teddy was faced with a big decision when his friend Silver asked him to father her child. Donovan is also rumored to be considered for the role of Finnick Odai in The Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire. [Zap2It]

Madame Vastra and Jenny Doctor WhoPopular British sci-fi series Doctor Who will feature the return of a popular lesbian character in an upcoming episode. In new promotional pictures, the reptilian extraterrestrial Madame Vastra is shown with her human companion, Jenny. (In an earlier episode, the two were shown as lovers in Victorian London.) Head writer Steven Moffat told SFX he loved Vastra and Jenny and felt they “really cut through as characters, given how little screen time they had.” Joining the couple in the episode, which airs in 2013, is British actress Diana Rigg and her daughter Rachael Stirling.
