Jai says “I didn’t realize I was going to have to always be gay” on Queer Eye

Jai Rodriguez, the useless member of the Fab Five, has previously been spotted with women. He’s also, however, been linked to Rocco DiSpirito.

Last week, The New York Daily News’ Rush and Molloy ran into Jai, he confirmed his bisexuality–and expressed confusion over the nature of the series he stars in. He said, “I like girls, too. When I signed on to the show I didn’t realize I was going to have to always be gay.”

That makes sense; “Queer Eye” is a pretty ambiguous title.
