Mr. Gay USA Only Has '72 Hours' to Survive

By: Brandon Voss

Swimmer and gay activist Michael Holtz earned the title of Mr. Gay USA 2011 and was runner-up for Mr. Gay World. Now he's competing on reality TV.

In 72 Hours, which premiered June 6 on TNT, strangers dropped into the wilderness with nothing but water and a GPS device must battle the elements as they race to find a briefcase containing $100,000 — all within three days.

In tonight's episode, Michael will find himself on a stretch of untamed New Zealand coastline with little more than the clothes on his back. And here's hoping those clothes don't stay on his back for long.

Watch the trailer for 72 Hours below.
