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 Can-AmMen.com’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.

      And we are supposed to care… why?

      Some unknown fame seeker leaves a trashy reality show… How is this even news? And what empty lives do you guys think the readers have that they’ll click through a 12-page slide show just to “make a determination”?

      It amazes me that people who watch porn turn into vicious stalkers and try to ruin the lives of those who appear in it. Double standard much?

      Big Brother is WAYYYY better than Glass House! ABC ripped the idea off since Big Brother continues to get amazing ratings year after year! This isn’t any sort of shocker either. Former Big Brother contestants have appeared in gay porn as well (James Zinkland) and former houseguest Steven Daigle appeared in gay porn after his appearance and even had toys molded after his unit.

      PLEASE, learn to spell and use REAL words. Did the writer submit this puff-piece as a text message?

      “Post comments that are relevant to the article, written in clear language….”

      Indeed–and please do the same for us.

      Some of you guys may not care about the article, but literally no one in the world cares to see your comments bitching about it. If you’re so ~above~ watching these reality shows or reading these articles, then, umm, why did you bother to read it and then comment? I think you’re the ones who have no lives. Just sayin’!

      Re No. 5 · w.e. “It amazes me that people who watch porn turn into vicious stalkers and try to ruin the lives of those who appear in it. Double standard much?”

      Probably the guy(s) who ‘reported’ him watch porn but feel really guilty about it and by reporting him, “cleanse” themselves of any sin, real or imagined. If the names of the accusers were made public, my guess is that there would be no accusations once word got out.

      Shannon–Are you new to the Net? Writing in ALL-CAPS is called SHOUTING–and it’s considered very rude.

      I suppose everyone is entitled to an opinion–you as much as anyone else. But it’s easy to conclude you may be a bit isolated and out-of-touch. I recommend observing more and learning before you decide to share your thoughts. Life is more complex and complicated than you suspect. Just my opinion.

      I think he left because he was ashamed of being so stupid on this show and looking like a big dumb tool. During one of their challenges, the house split into 2 teams, East coast vs. West coast. Jacob is from Oregon. He did not know if that was East or West. Someone had to tell him. Its on most ‘on demand’ cable services, if you want to see this dope embarrass himself.

      I do not watch any of this. However we are from a small town so word travels fast. I’m guessing that most of you viewing (with a judgmental, negative opinion) are either slow or just a sad, lonely individual. None of this should matter. Life is life. I’m quite certain that everyone has there own issues at hand. Worry about that. Not this. As long as his actions are not hurting anyone, I’m not sure why it matters.

      I’m finally watching on Hulu and Jacob came across as kind of dumb especially when the house was divided into teams based on what state your from. He had to ask if Oregon was East or West. He did not come across as gay so I suspect his cam role was a gay for pay type thing and that made it harder for him to stay on the show.
