The Return of Jesse Brune

The third season of Work Out is beginning and Bravo was nice enough to let us stretch our interest with a warm up show before the exercising and the drama got too hot and heavy. The pre-season opener gave us a look back on what has transpired so far in Jackie Warner's fitness business and gave us a glimpse of what is to come in this show's junior season. There was a lot of attention paid to introducing several new trainers that will be joining the cast, but all that really mattered to me was to see Jesse Brune, the irrepressible and terribly lovable co-star of the show, who says whatever he thinks and brings most of the wit and wisdom to the production.

Jackie states that she and Jesse had some problems in the past because she thought he was a little bitchy and up in everybody else's business. I say, "Yay, Jesse!" If there weren't any people with those attributes, there wouldn't be anybody to write blogs like this one. Jackie warned that Jesse has mellowed out a lot. That didn't sound so good, but the quick clips that followed her statement showed that Jesse is still the quintessential gay buddy that everybody should want to have. ("Why do girls wear makeup and perfume? Because they're ugly and they stink!") Lord love him. I want to spend a day at a theme park with him, talking about everything and everyone.

Jesse has lost some weight and it was important to him so that is what matters. To me he is adorable either way.

There are two new male trainers worth mentioning: Greg Plitt and JD Jordan. The women of the crew seemed to have a lot of interest in Greg, but I'm not feeling it. I'm just not interested in big muscle men. JD is a massage therapist. As a gay man, he will help keep the Bravo demographic watching.
