It turns out Clint Arlis and JJ Lane, the two straight Bachelorette contestants who claimed they’d fallen in love with each other while taping the ABC reality show, were only doing it for the cameras and that nothing gay ever happened.
“The whole thing was a publicity stunt that they guys came up with and then the producers ran with it to boost publicity for the show,” a source tells NAUGHTY GOSSIP. “The problem is, that there is nothing funny about two guys falling in love, it is not a joke.”
After the news went viral yesterday, Arlis sent out a string of tweets the ranged from apologizing to his dad for being gay, suggesting he’s transgender, and comparing himself to Health Ledger, the star of the gay romance Brokeback Mountain who died in 2008:
“Whoops. Sorry, dad? #brokebackbachelor,” tweeted Clint.
“Before I field any ?’s about #BrokebackBachelor rumors I would like 2 just say that I am a proud, 30 yr old woman and its 2015. You monsters.”
“If you have to be a #BROKEBACKBACHELOR, Be Heath Ledger. Always be #HeathLedger.”
