Romance is in the air on this season of The Bachelorette. The popular ABC reality show just took a super gay turn.
This season’s lady, Kaitlyn Bristowe, thought she had found a potential match. She gave her first one-on-one rose to Clint Arlis. But her heart was quickly broken when he declared his love for another man… His fellow contestant JJ Lane.
“It’s absolutely insane,” Arlis, who always thought of himself as straight, said during his on-camera interview before dropping the bomb to Bristowe. “I never thought that I’d meet somebody like that. Falling in love with a man never crossed my mind.”
There’s a first time for everything, right?
Arlis then went on to explain that he and Lane had “grown very close to each other in the shower.”
Unfortunately, those scenes were not captured by the camera crew, so we’ll just have to take his word on it.
When Arlis sat down with Bristowe to break the news, he told her he was “100 percent” in love with Lane, adding that she’s “not the right girl for me.”
But all hope is not lost for Bristowe. She still has 18 other guys to choose from.
As for the two gents, here’s wishing them both a long and happily ever after.

UPDATE: False alarm! TMZ reports that the whole romance is a hoax, cooked up by the men as “a joke” and used by producers to boost publicity for the show. But not everybody thinks it’s funny. Read more about it here.
