As the host of FBoy Island, Nikki Glaser has seen it all when it comes to red — and green — flags.
“In all dating reality shows, you suspect who’s here [for the right or wrong reasons], but the guys never admit it. There’s no even footage to show them admitting being a–holes. But on this show, we have footage of them being horrible,” she told Us Weekly while promoting season 3, currently airing on The CW. “So in some cases, we show you because it’s then so fascinating to watch. Or, we could go back and show all the times they deceived [the lead after they are eliminated]. But it’s interesting in real-time to know that this guy is actively lying on a date.”
Us quizzed Glaser on whether current celebrities would be labeled as “FBoys” or “nice guys” on the show. (Leads Katie Thurston, Hali Okeowo and Daniella Grace are on the hunt to find love with a “nice guy” who will split the cash prize. If they pick an “FBoy,” the man has the option to keep the full paycheck for himself.)
“I’ve got to say FBoy … that can be reformed and is about to be reformed,” Glaser told Us. “He’s a hot athlete, one of the best athletes out there, and he is .”
The comedian, a self-proclaimed Swiftie, believes the singer can “reform” him — and he’s already “softening the way I see FBoys soften.”
“The thing I like about Travis Kelce is that he really knows what a prize she is. … Travis seems to get it,” she said. “The other guys are kind of just like, ‘Yeah, Taylor Swift, whatever.’ … Like, you’re not dying that you’re dating the hottest, coolest, most talented person alive? And he seems to get it. And I love that. And I think that shows growth on her part too, to be attracted to someone like that.”
Glaser’s fellow comedian and pal David Spade, meanwhile, “presents as an FBoy, but is the nicest guy ever,” she told Us.
“I think that people just associate him [as] a skirt-chasing horn dog, which I mean, he has [been] a horn dog, but who isn’t? And that he just goes through women like crazy and he’s on prowl and he is kind of like a dirtbag or something,” she said. “I don’t even know why he gets [that reputation] — because he has dated, attractive, cool women over and over? … [Maybe] because he doesn’t care so much. He seems so laid back. … But he’s one of the most generous, nicest people in my life, such a nice guy at heart, but has that FBoy reputation.”
She has a more simple answer for Golden Bachelor Gerry Turner. “Not an FBoy bone in his little old body!” she declared.
