“Jai has a huge crush on James,” but the two, although friends, are not dating.
Queer Eye for the Straight Guy‘s Jai Rodriguez and Boy Meets Boy‘s James Getzlaff are not, in fact, an item, as The New York Daily News’ gossip team reported last week. A source tells TV Guide, “Jai has a huge crush on James, but they’re just friends. Besides, James has a boyfriend.” That boyfriend is Universal Pictures publicist Mark Markline. James is also “good friends” (mmm hmm) with The Amazing Race 4‘s Reichen Lehmkuhl; Reichen says they “played on the same beach volleyball team since before any of this TV stuff happened.”
