Great Gatsby Wed Bed Dead: Everybody Hates Daisy Buchanan, Right?

Hello there, Gloss fans! Welcome to this week’s episode of our web series Wed Bed Dead, in which editors Jennifer Wright and Ashley Cardiff must decide the potentially very sexy fate of three chosen gentlemen (and occasionally ladies) (and, uh, animals). The show is a live action spin-off of their longrunning and delightful games of Fuck Marry Kill here on The Gloss.

This week, we’re playing in honor of Baz Luhrmann‘s upcoming glitzy blockbuster, The Great Gatsby (which Jen hated, PS). Today’s trio will therefore be Jay Gatsby (played by Leonardo DiCaprio), Tom Buchanan (played by Joel Edgerton) and Nick Carraway (played by Tobey Maguire). Jen’s dream has always been to marry Gatsby, so the ‘bed’ option is the wild card here. …The one thing everyone is certain about, though, is how hard Daisy sucks.

Tune in every Wednesday at 1:00 for new episodes of Wed Bed Dead. And don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel.

Seriously. Don’t forget.

    The embedded video no worky? (It works if you go to YouTube.)

    Ok, I still don’t believe Nick is gay…any more gay than Gene in A Separate Peace. Reverence for someone of the same gender doesn’t make you gay. Second, I agree with screwing Tom. From the first time he’s described when Nick approaches the house he seems like he’d be a hardcore fuck machine.

    Lastly, Jennifer re-used the top from the robots episode! The scandal!

      It’s true. It’s not like our office has a wardrobe department; we wear our own clothes/do our own makeup/take our own anti-anxiety medication before getting on camera, etc.

    Jennifer,
    This is now two episodes in which you said you want to bed the angry fictional characters to “work out their anger issues.” I think the other one was the Hulk?

    I sort of understand the whole anger could be passion aspect in the bedroom, but I’d be a little worried that things could go the whole Chris Brown/Ike Turner route……
    Maybe wear like a catchers mask or a hockey helmet just for safety?

    I have to go with Ashley here. I have absolutely no desire to be in a relationship with someone like Gatsby. All that neediness and insecurity and putting women up on a fucking pedestal? Not fun long-term. You know he’s going to crash and burn when he finds out that going to the bathroom after sex involves peeing and not just splashing water on your face and powdering your nose. And I would not touch Tom with a yellow convertible. Nick is probably at least a little in love with Gatsby (Sean, I’m with you on never seeing anything sexual between Gene and Phineas, but Nick’s a lot more questionable, mostly because there actually ARE women in The Great Gatsby), but he seems like a decent, solid person, and since I don’t cheat at sports or drive recklessly I feel safe. (Also when my friends and I play this game we always presume sexless marriages, so homosexuality wouldn’t even really be an issue)

    Fuck Gatsby (please GOD don’t let him call me ‘old sport,”), Marry Nick (good head on his shoulders if not a slightly aimless one, which I think can be forgiven as he is fairly young, plus he comes from a good family & is a good listener), MURDER TOM I HATE THAT GUY SO MUCH (gruesomely pulled apart by polo ponies).
