Is Jake Pavelka gay? Personally, we don't see it, but there are now two separate reports of this surfacing, and crazier things have turned out to be true.
We'd rate this rumor as less believable than reports of Al Gore trying to sex up Molly Hagerty, but at the same time, we wouldn't rule it out fully yet.
Despite his nice public persona, The Bachelor star weaves a web of lies, according to Vienna Girardi ... and Tanya Douglas, who dated Jake from 2008-09.
"Jake did the same thing to me!" says Tanya, claiming Jake promised to marry her but never followed through on it. "He is a slippery, slimy con man."
Here's where the gay rumors come in. As with Vienna, Tanya Douglas says Jake withheld physical affection from Tanya ... after sleeping with her first.
"He told me he had to abstain from sex for religious purposes until we were married," she recalls. "It was weird, 'cause we had already been intimate!"
WEB OF LIES: Did Jake date another man, as Star claims?
Instead of cuddling Tanya, Jake "locked himself in the closet and pray in the dark," she reveals. "I'm all for prayer, but in the closet?" In the closet ... fitting.
Douglas says that the big phony didn't even go to church regularly and "used religion as an excuse when it was convenient for him." Vienna can attest.
The religious excuse was many he used for refusing sex with Vienna, or so she claims. Fellow Bachelor contestants think they know the real reason.
"I think he has gay potential and definitely gay tendencies," a Bachelorette contender, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said of the hunky pilot.
Says Paul Rosseau of The Bachelorette: "He didn't want to have sex with a beautiful girl and never really tried with the other girls ... Nothing personal, Jake!"
Richard Mathey from the same season said, "I'm not sure if he is gay, but it seems he has no experience with the types of women that are on the show."
Friends of Vienna's also have conflicting theories about his sexuality. "Vienna told me, 'I don't think Jake is into girls,'" a friend of Vienna's told Radar.
