Bachelor Jake Pavelka Has 'Gay Tendencies': Contestants

Former 'Bachelor' Jake gave ex-fiancee Vienna a variety of reasons for refusing to have sex with her, from his diet to wanting to wait until marriage. Now contestants on the show say Jake might prefer men.

"I think he has gay potential and definitely gay tendencies," a bachelorette from Season 12 tells Radaronline.com.

Paul Rosseau, who appeared on Season 4 of 'The Bachelorette,' agrees.

"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," he told Radar. "Nothing personal, Jake!"

Richard Mathey from the same season said, "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."

Friends of Vienna and Jake's have conflicting theories about Jake's sexuality.

"Vienna told me, 'I don't think Jake is into girls,'" a friend of Vienna's told Radar.

Jake's childhood friend told Radar, "He's most certainly not gay."

"Look at him. He's the all-American perfect catch of a guy," the friend said. "There's a reason why ABC cast him as the most eligible bachelor in America. If he wanted to go out and just get laid by beautiful women, he could, no doubt. But sex to him means and has always meant something. He was that guy in high school that waited for the relationship to deepen before he slept with a girl."
