Looks like The Bachelorette has been caught in the act yet again. Just a few days after TVgasm revealed to the world that potential suitor Fabrice is gay, we bring news of yet another oversight in casting. Jerry, the dreamy stud who literally swept bachelorette Jen Schefft off her feet, is a reality veteran. You see, while Jerry’s bio claims he’s an art gallery director, fans of The Real World: Back to New York might be more familiar with his OTHER job — that of a doorman at one Harry Winston’s. Yes, Jerry is the famous doorman who seduced the lovestruck Lori for a multi-episode arc, only to act like she had five heads after she finally had the nerve to ask him on a date (suddenly he was “engaged”). I suppose I should have realized Jerry’s reality whore tendencies after I walked past Harry Winston’s two years ago and he was eagerly taking photos with adolescent girls.
Nevertheless, this ranks as yet another blow to Jen Schefft who has now been saddled with a gay man and a recycled reality star. And let’s not mention the Joe Millionaire-ish explanation Jerry’s gonna have to give when he tries to pass off the Harry Winston storefront as an “art gallery”.
Thanks to the sharp eyes who tipped us off. If anyone has any pictures of Jerry at his Harry Winston post, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
