AMAZIAN OF THE WEEK! Billy Kemp

Jordan Young (left), aka Billy Kemp (right)

Name: Billy Kemp

Hails from: Wyoming

Occupation: Vice President of Casting, Fremantle Media

Known for: Acting and writing in gay porn as “Jordan Young” (Lost in Vegas), making the transition to casting reality TV (Elimidate), being promoted recently to VP of Casting and Talent for Fremantle Media, which produces reality hits like American Idol and America’s Got Talent.

If Billy Kemp’s story of going from being an gay adult film star in the 90′s (under the tutelage of tranny porn director Chi Chi LaRue) to becoming a TV exec for one of reality’s top production companies isn’t the American Dream, we don’t know what is. Kemp–who is half-Korean, half-Greek–has had a unique career trajectory that proves it doesn’t matter where you start, it only matters where you end up [insert butt-sex joke here]. Hear that, Tila?
