Madison Hildebrand may have played "Am-I-Gay-Or-Bi" ping-pong on TV, but one thing's for certain — he's happy he did it in front of the cameras.
"If I make a decision to do something because that's what my gut asks me to do, there is no down side," Million Dollar Listing's hotshot housing guru tells GregInHollywood.com. "Maybe it has affected my business in a negative way. I don't know and I don't put a lot of energy there."
The 30-year-old's thankful for spending the last four years in the small screen spotlight, and for reasons greater than giving his business an edge in a thumbs down economy. "More than anything, I think coming out on television was a big decision for me because I know how hard it was for me to come out to my family and my friends. And I just wanted to be an example to show other people that you can be young, you can be successful and you can be gay and you don't have to worry other judgment," Madison confides. "That was a good thing for me."

Good for you Madison! It's very cool that you decided to be so honest about your sexuality on national television. Every time someone in the public eye does that I think it lessens the stigma I know a lot of gay people feel. It is especially good when the peson is very kind and successful like you. I like how the show doesn't focus on your private life any more than they do with the "the Joshes". I hope you are getting past your breakup, it made me sad whe you teared up. Anyway kudos to you for all your success!
