Is Trevor Donovan's 90210 gay
character of all-American jock Teddy preparing to come out of the
Teddy has been conflicted with his
sexual orientation since the nighttime teenage drama premiered the
first episode of its third season. In an early scene, Teddy
throws-up after a date with current flame Ian, played by Canadian pop
singer Kyle Riabko.
Producers have enlisted newcomer
Freddie Smith to fill the upcoming void left by Riabko, who is
reportedly leaving the soap of his own accord.
Smith's Marco – described by
producers as “hot” and “super-athletic” – is not a fling
for Teddy. But managing a love affair between bouts of puke isn't
terribly sexy, leaving producers to quicken the pace of Teddy's
coming to terms with his sexuality.
On this week's episode, Teddy isn't
seriously considering coming out, but it appears that his days of
sneaking around might be coming to a close after he's discovered by
Dixon making out with Ian.
“Can a guy kiss another guy and not
be gay?” Dixon later asks Navid.
The next day, Dixon asks Teddy, “Are
you gay?” To which Teddy begs his friend to keep his secret. (The
