Make a date with the "Gigolos". Showtime presents an extremely rare and uncensored look into the personal and professional lives of five hot guys in Vegas who like to hang out, have fun and get girls… but in their case they get paid for it. A reality series like no other, "Gigolos" is not only provocative but also surprisingly truthful and heartfelt. It's a wild ride for these real-life escorts who never miss a trick.
Laughable? Yeah. Pathetic? Even more so. Degrading? That, too. Entertaining for consulting adult viewers who pay extra for such premium cable fare? Possibly.Uncle Barky Full Review
Viewers are supposed to invest in their camaraderie, but there isn't much chemistry or even joie de vivre in the group.The New York Times Full Review
The real puzzler is how many clients seem completely unabashed about having their preferences and fetishes captured on film--undaunted by paid-for frolicking (between two, or more, consenting adults) with a camera crew in tow. Once you get past that, the series proves reasonably compelling while relying on typical tricks of the trade--a brand of pandering commonly known as "reality TV."Variety Full Review
With Gigolos, Showtime takes a topic that should be provocative and turns it into nothing more than "The Real Man Whores of Las Vegas."Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
After watching a bunch of real-life gigolo slimeballs have full-on sex with pathetic women who pay them, I needed to shower between episodes.New York Post Full Review
