It’s been a rumor for a while now, and it seems to be picking up some steam now that former “Bachelor” contestants Jake Pavelka and his fiancee Vienna Girardi have very publicly broken up. Sources are coming out of the woodwork to claim that Jake is gay – or, at the very least, has “gay tendencies.” Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
Paul Rosseau, who appeared on The Bachelorette, season four, didn’t mince words when he questioned Jake’s sexuality in an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com.
“I definitely think he has gay tendencies, not only because of the way he dresses but also because he didn’t want to have sex with a beautiful girl and never really tried with the other girls on the show.” Paul said, before adding a glib, “Nothing personal, Jake!”
A bachelorette from season 12 didn’t want her name used, but told RadarOnline.com about Jake: “I think he has gay potential and definitely gay tendencies.”
Jake has emphatically denied being gay, but Vienna’s bedroom revelations have kept the controversy flaming. She said in an interview that Jake said premarital sex was a sin, but that was after he abstained from sex to go on a religious fast and after they started their relationship with passion. Vienna detailed Jake’s series of excuses for avoiding intimacy for six months.
Richard Mathey from season four of the Bachelorette said about Jake: “I’m not sure if he is gay, but it seems he just has no experience with those types of women that are on the show.”
Jake is now on the ABC Bachelor Pad and says Vienna was jealous of his acting career. She says he hid his acting ambition from her and lied to her about their future.
One bachelor from Jake’s season didn’t want his name used but told RadarOnline.com that the real issue about Jake is not his sexuality but his personality. “I couldn’t tell you if the guy is gay but I do have one word for you — goober!” the contestant told RadarOnline.com.
“Jake always struck me as a phony, he never was really himself. He always trying and trying and trying to impress.”
What exactly does “gay tendencies” mean? Either you are or you aren’t. Right? I’m so confused. But I’m not sure I buy it. Why in the world would a gay man agree to appear on a dating show like “The Bachelor?” I know he is a wanna-be actor, but it doesn’t make any sense to me. He could have been on a lot of other types of reality shows – Survivor, The Amazing Race, Big Brother, to name a few – that don’t require you to date a bunch of women and pick one for a bride. I think this quote sums it up pretty well: “I’m not sure if he is gay, but it seems he just has no experience with those types of women that are on the show.” Yeah…’those types of women’ being “skanky fame whores.’ But then again, Jake’s a pretty big fame whore too. But is he a big gay fame whore?
