Did The Glass House Contestant Jacob Leave Because Of Gay-Webcam Past?

Queerty reader Andrew sent us in a tip about Jacob, the cute contestant on ABC’s The Glass House, who mysteriously left the Big Brother-like reality show after just a single episode.

Andrew writes:

There has never been an official reason stating what happened to Jacob that I know of. But perhaps someone recognized him as Jake Weston on’s live webcam shows and the producers kicked him off?

In these images, and the ones below, you can see Jacob and “Jake Weston” look strikingly similar and sport the same intricate tattoo on their left arm.

If  Jacob, a 28-year-old from Oregon, is indeed the same lad that’s appearing in solo videos on the Canadian gay porn site—and the photo evidence is fairly convincing—we gotta believe ABC knew and just didn’t care.

Or the network was hoping it’d add some drama: Almost every show has at least one porn pup on it: The Real World house mate Dustin Zito made headlines (well, Queerty headlines) when it was learned he appeared on Fratmen.

Sadly, Jacob’s departure after the June 18 premiere didn’t just sadden his fans: He left behind fellow cast mate Alex, with whom he was having quite the bromance before the duo were put “in limbo.”

When the second episode aired that we learned Jacob had left the series, leaving Alex “to fend for himself against the housemates,” as Andrew reports. Alex, who was pitching himself as a kind of uber-villain, was soon voted off the show himself.

So did Jacob/Jake split because he was afraid of being found out? Or did he sense he was going to be voted out anyway. Or maybe he just thought the show was a bust? We’re not gonna judge: people living in The Glass House shouldn’t have stones thrown at them.
