Bachelors Cliff & JJ Won't Let Gay Rumors Keep Them Apart

JJ and cliff bacheloretteIn a house full of men, all vying for one woman's heart on reality TV, there's one question that always seems to pop up: Someone has to be gay, right? In the case of season 11 of The Bachelorette, a new promo made it seem like not one but two of Kaitlyn Bristowe's suitors are -- and may have even fallen for one another during the season.


Now, TMZ is reporting what they've learned about the so-called "Brokeback Bachelor" moment, involving Clint and JJ

According to the gossip site, Clint and JJ are both 100 percent straight. And the promo was just edited to make their genuine bromance look like more to, well, get people talking. Obviously! 

Kind of lame, right? That's all they've got to whet our appetites? Eye roll.

Good to know that, according to TMZ's sources, both guys were in on the "Brokeback" spin and "just think it's funny." They gave producers soundbites to run with and are loving hard on all the attention from social media, enjoying that they need to "think of funny things to write back to people on Twitter." Yep.

Clint seems like kind of a softspoken sweetie who's happy to have the spotlight, but given JJ's faux cocky act and desperate need for attention, who would be surprised that they're having a blast extending their 15 minutes? And ABC's loving every second.

How do you feel about ABC acting like these guys took their bromance to the next level?
