Rumors that season 14 The Bachelor star Jake Pavelka might be gay have surfaced.

Two former reality stars have weighed in on the controversy of Pavelka's sexual orientation after he broke up with his fiance Vienna Girardi.

Pavelka, 32, proposed marriage to Girardi, 24, on the season finale of the reality show. Confirmation that the pair have split came earlier in the month.

“I'm saddened by the whole thing, but sometimes love just isn't enough in a relationship,” Pavelka told celebrity website TMZ. “No matter what happens, Vienna and I will remain friends.”

Pavelka and Girardi agreed that their love life suffered, leading to speculation that Pavelka might be gay.

Paul Rosseau, who appeared on season 4 of The Bachelorette, told celebrity website Radar Online that he believes Pavelka 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 said, the added, “Nothing personal, Jake!”

A second reality star from season 12 of The Bachelorette who preferred not to be named agreed: “I think he has gay potential and definitely gay tendencies.”
