EPISODE 114: America's Next Top Bisexual w/ Marvin Cortes


Show Notes

Marvin Cortes was the runner-up on cycle 20 of the modeling competition show, “America’s Next Top Model.” He was always caught flirting with the girls competing on the show and even ended up in a short relationship with Renee Bog-wah-deen at the end of the season. Which is part of the reason why Marvin’s family never suspected that he was anything but straight. But last month, Marvin posted a video telling everyone that he’s bisexual and proud. Today, we catch up with Marvin and talk reality TV, coming out, homophobia, and how modeling helped him find himself.
