In the first episode of Project GogoBoy, we saw Max Ryder and Pierre Fitch sneak away from the DJ booth to have an elevator tryst, ruining Jake Bass ‘s set in the process. This week, we see Max and Jake doing what frenemies do best: shopping and being snarky! Throughout the entire outing, Jake can’t stop ribbing Max about hooking up with Pierre, harping over and over again about Max’s “Pierre obsession”. Max tries not to let it bother him, but later that night, when Max discovers Jake’s been spreading rumors, the tension comes to a head and the boys explode into an epic fight, moving officially from “frenemies” to just plain “enemies.”
Now that Max and Jake’s friendship is on the rocks, Jake decides to try to drive a wedge between Max and Pierre by cozying up to Pierre. While gossiping by the pool, Jake spills to Pierre that he’s got a hot date that night with an iPad boy from the club.
This iPad boy, Stephen Forest, wasn’t always an iPad boy. In fact, he used to be one of the best dancers at XL. But Jake Bass has a policy to never date other gogoboys (“It’s way too much drama”), and he really wanted Stephen. “I didn’t get him fired,” Jake says. “I gave him an opportunity to be with me.” Stephen was confused by his sudden demotion, but seems to totally forget that he’s no longer a dancer when he and Jake go out that night. Even with Max lurking in the background, Jake and Stephen manage to have a great time, dancing, touching, and fucking the night (and morning) away.
