The Bachelor's Jake Pavelka told the panel of The View Wednesday that he's not gay, and has all the scoop for for you.

The gay rumors sprouted up after Pavelka's ex Vienna Girardi went on the offensive after their messy break-up following Jake's stint on Dancing with the Stars this spring, saying that the pair went months without "intimacy" -- i.e., sex.

According to Pavelka, his problems with Girardi outside the bedroom all but killed any chemistry they might have had between the sheets.

"There was a lack of intimacy because our problems were so heavy," Pavelka, 32, said on The View. "I can't separate love and intimacy. And apparently, that makes me gay."

When asked point blank if he's homosexual, Pavelka, a Dallas-based airline pilot, replied: "No; one of my best friends is gay. I can't see how someone can look at Vienna and find her not attractive."

Pavelka said that when he knelt "down on one knee to Girardi, he meant it.

"I still believe that you can find love on that show," Pavelka said.

Last week, talk show host George Lopez asked another of Jake's beauties from The Bachelor, Ali Fedotowsky, if she thinks Pavelka is gay.

Fedotowsky said she doesn't believe him to be, adding that "just because he wears really nice turtleneck sweaters, that doesn't mean he's gay."
