We live in a world that is unforgiving to the past. The moment you become visible on a national level, the internet gets ravenous in its attempts to unearth your deepest, darkest secrets. Big Brother houseguests must be used to this by now – if you agree to appear on Big Brother, make sure you have nothing to hide. Or, at least be sure that you’re ready for your past to be blown wide open for everyone to see. On Big Brother 9, it was James Zinkand and his dipped toe in gay pornography that was let loose on the public. The revelation of James’ involvement in such seedy affairs changed the public’s view of him and, weirdly, gave America some insight into his game play. This season, we may have a similar situation. Pictures of Jessie, Big Brother’s young body building behemoth, have surfaced on the internet and they are chock full of gay overtones. One report has a source saying that Jessie is indeed a homosexual, but he hasn’t come out of the closet just yet. This is all speculation, but it once again reinforces the state of the times: these days, skeletons rarely remain closeted.
Here’s the story. A few pictures of Jesse posing nude and in racy positions were found. Then, a website called Gay Socialites cited a source that had these three telling quotes:
“He isn’t ready for his parents, or the public, to know [that he is gay].”
“Jessie isn’t actually open with his sexuality, but he doesn’t hide it too well either.”
“We just don’t talk about it.”
Anonymous gossip sources like this are hardly reliable. It could be true, it may not be, we don’t know. We probably won’t know unless Jessie specifically addresses it. However, these pictures by themselves mean nothing. Body builders have always posed for racy pictures. Go back to guys like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone – their early career pictures are just as questionable as Jessie’s.
Jessie is currently nominated for eviction on Big Brother 10, though he appears to be the favorite to survive at this point. Big Brother’s live eviction episode can be seen on Thursday at 8pm ET/PT.
