New Character: Exclusive Spoilers for Gay Student Blair

Blaine, Blair. Anyone else confused as to what this kid’s real name is?

No matter what we’ll be calling Kurt’s Dalton Academy gay counterpart, the rumored Kurt love interest should be coming up soon (season 2′s episode 6, I hear). So I’ve done some digging on the guy, and here’s the extra spoiler dirt:

  • So who are these Dalton Academy Warblers? Well, they’re actually called the Whiffenpoofs (Hufflepuff?). And they’re not exactly at the bottom of their school’s food chain.
  • Seems Dalton Academy’s not the only school he’s been to! Blair attended a different school before enrolling in Dalton (maybe McKinley…?).
  • The reason for Blair leaving his old school? Apparently Dalton Academy is a bit more accepting of everybody than your typical high school (McKinley, *cough*cough*)…and that includes sexuality.

    Very interesting! Though Whiffenpoof is a reference to Yale University’s Men’s choir, not Harry Potter (though, everything should be related to HP in some way lol)

    @Jhim Oh, thanks for the heads-up! Wasn’t aware it actually was a reference (I’m big on references in books, TV, and movies). You’re right about that though – the world can probably Harry Potter-ize anything, lol.

    Yay! At first I thought he was from VA…which was annoying cuz they already did that (Jesse st. Jackass) but a snooty boarding school?! New and different..YES! And Whiffenpoof is just amusing :) But what’s this I hear about Darren Criss playing Blair?

    @xXBrdwayBabeXx Yeah, I know what you mean – if they are going to do the whole rival glee club thing again, at least it’s not VA this time. And yes! It’s looking like Darren Criss has been cast as Blair (I had only vaguely heard of him before now, but he’s a cute one. In a sort of floppy-nerdy way, lol). I’m actually looking forward to seeing him play the part.

    The Wiffenpoofs are Yale University’s collegiate all-male a cappella group, which was founded in 1909. While it may be modeled after the Yale Eli’s glee club, it seems likely that Dalton Academy will call them something similar, but not exactly the same.
