One of ChicagoPride.com’s more popular slideshows is “2004 Hotties” a retrospective of buff, brawny men, taken by photographer David Ouano at various events and nightclubs over the past year. One of the pictures taken at Sound-Bar during a gay-friendly event is of a cute, smiling, shirtless man that’s titled “Fabrice of Paris”. But even before this picture was discovered, accusations were flying around the Internet. It all began when the Reality T.V. Show Web site, TVGasm.com posted an email sent to the site that said, “one of the new suitors (fabrice) is gay, and an actor – I went on a few dates with him a while ago. plus now he has a boyfriend.” That opened a flood gate of Google geeks searching the Internet for proof to support the accusation.
In addition to the photo posted on ChicagoPride.com, realitytvworld.com is reporting that Fabrice has personal profiles on bigmuscle.com and friendster.com.
Chicago Sun-Times and E!online.com. ChicagoPride.com and "the photo" received mentions in People Magazine and US Weekly.
In the mean-time, check out Fabrice’s photo and see what all the fuss is about.
"The Bachelorette" airs on Monday nights at 8:00pm on ABC.
