‘NSync band member Lance Bass has revealed he’s gay in People magazine, and has surprised precisely no one as his sexual orientation is the worst-kept secret of the year.

Lance also admits in People that he’s dating divorced Amazing Race star Reichen Lehmkuhl, with whom he has a “very stable” relationship. Both have been frequently seen together, and have even been photographed wearing each others’ clothes.

Long before he met Reichen, Lance flirted with reality TV. He almost went into space for a reality show and was approached about a celebrity edition of Survivor. He also once slammed Making the Band group O-Town.
