Jake Pavelka isn’t gay, says ‘Bachelorette’ Ali

We know some Marquee commenters are pretty convinced that former “Bachelor” Jake Pavelka is interested in other bachelors, but “Bachelorette” Ali Fedowtowsky says that isn’t true.

“Just because he wears really nice turtleneck sweaters doesn’t mean he’s gay,” Fedotowsky, 25, told George Lopez on “Lopez Tonight.” Apparently Pavelka has been plagued with Internet rumors guessing at his sexuality since his split from Vienna Girardi, who reportedly told a tabloid that he wouldn't have sex with her.

But Fedotowsky should have some idea of the truth – she was once competing for an engagement with Pavelka, although she did choose to leave the show to head back to work.

“It was a tough decision,” Fedotowsky said. “I thought I was falling in love and wanted to stay, but I had a really good job!”

When she was given the opportunity to go back to Pavelka, Fedotowsky said she tried, but he wouldn’t take her back. Not that Fedotowsky is still upset about it – she’s got plenty of new suitors to worry about.

    Jake came on the Bachelorette as a one of a kind, genuine man. Most of America picked up what he put down. Then, he was asked by ABC to be the Bachelor. I will admit, I was a fan of Jake's at first. However, when he picked Vienna, I realized that Jake is counterfeit. Anyone knows that a genuine, honest, morally upright man, does not pick a much hated, controversial woman as a life long mate. I believe Jake picked Vienna because he knew doing so would boost his publicity. He also thought that he could dump her without any negative ramifications. He failed, however, to hide his insincerity during his post-break up interview with Vienna.

    Now, much of America is willing to accept that Jake is a fame seeking, fake individual. Hopefully, no one will tune into his episode of Drop Dead Diva. Jake has no ability to succeed as an actor. Networks are casting him in roles because they believe that he has a lot of support among viewers. Please show them that this is no true. Stop tuning in to everything show he is on.

    It is way past time for Jake the Fake to move back to Dallas and live a life of no publicity whatsoever. It is actually disappointing to note how long Americans fell for Jake's blatantly counterfeit behavior. Do not be so naive.

    He is lame and has no character!!! Don't care if he is gay or not. After the way he treated his fiance what woman would want him??? He will have to get a woman that has no self respect and brainless. No he is no longer a pilot he can't afford the fuel. He will soon be broke and all he will have is his memory of short fame. Everyone we know thinks he is a sicko.

    Doesn't denying that you're gay sort of backfire and make others think you are SUPER gay, and embarrassed about it? It's like "He who smelt it, dealt it," right?

    Whether Jake is gay or not, I don't really care. What it is clear is that he definitely used Vienna. He chose her over the other more beautiful women because he believed that she would be the least vulnerable, and less likely to be attacked by the fans since Vienna was the most hated person amongst the women.

    Bottom line, Jake knew exactly what he was doing when he chose someone who was least popular. He created himself this shocker on purpose. He figured that once he gains his fame, he'll just drop Vienna, no big deal. Very calculating. His temper alone is a big red flag for me. Thanks but no thanks! Vienna consider yourself lucky! I was not a fan of yours, but I'm in your team with this.

    The real question here is...how is Ali getting time off from her really good job when she couldn't stay on the show last time because she would lose that really good job??? This show is scripted and you can tell who the next bachelor or bachelorette is when they get down to the final four. The one most people want gets sent home. Hmmmmmmm! We're on to you ABC!!!!!

    Being gay myself, I have always had a knack for weeding out and idetifying another gay person. I'm sorry, but Jay is Fruit Loop city. This guy is GAY. As a picnic basket. And while were on the topic. So is Taylor Lautner. BIG TIME. They both have feminine ways in their movements and voices. But I can understand in that industry you must keep it quiet or it will effect your career. So for now boys . . . . get yourselves some gay videos. It will help ease the pain of keeping it to yourself.

      He's not necessarily gay, he's just from Dallas. Anyone who's spent any appreciable time in Dallas knows that it is the LA of Texas. 20 & 30-something guys are obsessed with the way they look, making sure that they have the latest style in clothes, have the coolest job of anyone they know, and they'll spend most of the time telling you about the most important thing in their life - themselves.

    How in the world Ali knows Jake is NOT gay..? Really tell me... I have a friend that was married for 20 years and all of those years her husband was gay and she never knew until he confessed to her... So NO, Ali doesn't know that either... BTW, is Ali looking for 15 mins of fame too..?

    How can someone that hot as Vienna beg a young man for intimay that claims to love her on TV when he has not gotten any for months? Jake's answer with Mario Lopez on Extra was lame. Now we know he wants Mario! He is a fame seeker. Will some ex boyfriend come out for his 15 minutes of fame?

    Jake puposely chose Vienna...she was the underdog, the least liked by the other girls, his parents and america..so why did he pick her and toss aside women who were so clearly suitable for him. Some episodes were shocking to watch as he dated women who had everything he claimed he was looking for. Tossing sometimes two good women in one show. It never made any sense till now, Jake knew if he chose a good woman who America liked, his parents liked etc..he would look like the biggest jerk when he broke it off with one of them. He knew or at least he thought he knew if he dumped Vienna no one would care but he is wrong. I believe he set this woman up and I think he was and is looking for stardom and after watching the Vienna/Jake showdown it saddened me to hear Chris Hanson go on about Jake and his honesty. Jake had no intention of finding what is defined as a decent woman because again, dumping her would turn him into a villian, so he picked a villian to take the focus off of him. I truly believe after watching him and the way he acted during the televised meeting that he is not only gay but he is a sociopath. Vienna was right when she said "why should she get a job in LA as they were supposed to go back to his hometown." He used her as a pawn and I think she did love him and he blindsided her and hoped that her reputation would destroy her and build his. If anyone hires this freak as an actor I for one will never watch anything this airplane pilot is in. He should get back to his job and consider his 15 minutes of fame over. Did anyone see him on tv when Inside edition wanted to talk to him and he said he couldn't because he had his publicist on the phone....I am not a Vienna fan but I see what he did because if he was truly looking for his wife, he would have chose Tenley..it was just to weird that the ones everyone liked and seemed perfect for him where sent home for absolutely no good reason.

    just because a guy dates or is married doesn't mean he's not gay. ali is quite naive if she thinks otherwise. jake just hasn't come out to himself yet, and probably won't for a long time, if ever. he will certainly make plenty of girls miserable trying to be straight.
