Former gay porn star and Ultimate Fighter Aaron Savvy finds the “Hole in the Wall”

… and no, that’s not a euphemism.

Seriously, what is going on these days? You can’t swing a dead cat (or a five-dollar footlong) without hitting a former gay porn star anymore. Everyone from college wrestlers to reality stars are coming out as gay porn vets of various stripes, and leaking a sex tape is a surer way to get a reality show than sending out a resume.

A reader (t/y, Chuck!) brought it to our attention that FOX’s new physical competition, Hole in the Wall, is the latest mainstream outlet to feature a man whose … um … athletic abilities … are already quite familiar to many a gay man. In the first episode of the utterly bizarre show (which premiered on Sunday), Aaron Savvy (aka "Ajay" to Sean Cody fans) competed as a member of the Six Pack team as they tried to avoid getting knocked into a pool of water by a moving wall.

Savvy, a Mormon-born fitness trainer and former Ultimate Fighter from California who gave up porn in 2007, is trying to break into the mainstream as a model, and has spoken openly (and without regrets) about his detour in adult entertainment. 

You can watch the full episode of Hole in the Wall after the jump. And if you want to know why it’s so damn funny to hear the announcer ask Aaron if he’s “ready … to face … the hole?” you can easily track down Ajay’s videos online. (And seriously? It’s worth the time. Like, seriously.)

In 2003, Brian launched the world's first website devoted to horror film from a gay perspective (CampBlood.org), mining an untapped (and occasionally unintentional) source of entertainment and bringing together a huge and colorful population of gay horror fans and filmmakers. When he's not pulling skeletons out of closets, Brian writes reviews for horror megasite Bloody-Disgusting.com, general film site Freezedriedmovies.com, and can be found on the ever-informative RottenTomatoes.com. Brian is also a filmmaker, having produced, written, and directed two shorts (the dark romantic comedy An Apple a Day and the eerie suspense piece Two Story House) that have played at film festivals worldwide and left audiences generally uneasy. A born-and-bred Midwesterner, Brian studied Mass Media and Film at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. (I know – crazy, right?) before fleeing the district for the warm and occasionally stinky shores of NYC. Brian is a proud member of the Online Film Critics Society, loving husband to illustrator Andy Swist, and benevolent overlord of their two cats.
