more Manhunt dirt: Rob is a lesbian, Hunter was working as a model at age 17.
Manhunt is down to three contestants, only two of whom (Rob and Jon) are competing, non-embedded models. And as usual, Andy Towle is all over the Manhunt dirt. Most recently, he posted a link to what is apparently Rob’s Gay.com profile, in which Rob identifies himself as a lesbian. Who knew? A Towleroad commenter notes that despite being updated recently, the profile is inconsistent with the information on Bravo’s show web site. For example, his Gay.com says he’s out to “all but family,” which must mean his family doesn’t get Bravo or have Internet access. Also on Towleroad, Hunter, last week’s evictee, was revealed to have posed for a photographer when he was 17. Back then, he was willing to do “all but nude” photography; later, he clearly held to those standards.
