August 06, 2010 02:00 PM by Nancy Floyd


After his infamous breakup with Vienna Girardi, former Bachelor star Jake Pavelka isn’t ready to date just yet. He also wants the world to know that he’s not gay, despite allegations from his former fiancee. Keep reading for more details on why Jake Pavelka isn’t ready to start another romance, what he has to say about those homosexuality rumors, and what The Bachelorette herself, Ali Fedotowsky, thinks about his sexuality…

Among the many accusations flung between Bachelor star Jake Pavelka and his now ex-fiance Vienna Girardi, the most recent is that Jake is gay. The couple openly admits to dealing with intimacy problems prior to their breakup. The lack of intimacy between them led Vienna to call Jake gay, a charge he dismisses completely. ”There was a lack of intimacy because our problems were so heavy,” Jake Pavelka said on a recent episode of The View. “I can’t separate love and intimacy — and apparently that makes me gay.”

When the ladies of The View asked Jake Pavelka point-blank if he was, in fact, a homosexual, he said, “no, no,” before adding that “one of his best friends is gay.” His former flame, Ali Fedotowsky, recent star of The Bachelorette, recently defended Jake Pavelka’s heterosexuality on Lopez Tonight, joking, ”Just because he wears really nice turtleneck sweaters does not mean he’s gay!”

Whether he prefers men or women, Jake Pavelka isn’t ready to date anyone right now. “I’m not dating yet. I’m still just taking time for me,” he says. “I’m definitely doing some ‘me time’ right now.”
