Maybe Glee producers weren't being cagey with us when they denied that seemingly straight New Directions addition Sam Evans (Chord Overstreet) was going to turn out to be Kurt's (Chris Colfer) boyfriend. Now there's another candidate to add to the suspect list.

The new season's sixth episode will introduce a character named Blair. He is a gay high school junior described as masculine, sexy, charismatic and handsome — in other words, a perfect match for Kurt. Blair will recur (and sing!) in more than one episode in a storyline that finds him competing against New Directions in an opposing Glee club.

But will he make beautiful music with young Mr. Hummel? That remains to be seen.
