Now, as he competes on Dancing With the Stars season 32, everyone’s wondering: Is Harry Jowsey gay? We’ll explore the latest updates on his life, so keep reading to find out.
Is Harry Jowsey Gay?
No, Harry Jowsey is not gay. The 26-year-old star has found himself at the center of speculation regarding his sexual orientation, with some mistakenly assuming he is gay.
This misunderstanding can be traced back to a couple of incidents. Firstly, Harry openly discussed his encounter with transgender YouTube star Nikita Dragun during an appearance on the BFFs podcast.
He candidly revealed that they had gotten ‘pretty drunk’ and spent a night together. He emphasized that, to him, it was akin to hooking up with any other woman, as he sees trans women as women, and he didn’t consider it a significant event.
Harry admitted he had not anticipated the news of their encounter going public. Another factor contributing to the confusion is an unfortunate incident in 2021 when Harry Jowsey used an anti-gay slur directed at James Charles.
However, it’s important to note that recent shirtless dancing TikTok videos, which may have fueled these rumors, should not overshadow the fact that Harry has exclusively dated women in the past, providing strong evidence that his sexual orientation is indeed straight.
Who Is Harry Jowsey Dating?
Harry Jowsey is not dating anyone at the moment. Amid swirling rumors of a romantic connection between Harry Jowsey and his DWTS choreographer, Rylee Arnold, the duo seems to be keeping their cards close to their chests.
Following their sizzling Latin night performance, Entertainment Tonight didn’t miss the chance to ask the burning question about their relationship status.
Harry, at 26, slyly replied, “We just enjoy hanging out and we love each other, so it’s been great.” Rylee, the 18-year-old dancing sensation, chimed in with an agreeing “Yes” before Harry added that they were intentionally leaving an air of mystery around them.
As fans rally behind them and show their support for the potential couple, Rylee expressed her appreciation, saying:
“I love it, and it’s so fun. We can definitely use the support and the votes. We just love everybody that’s supporting us, and we’re having so much fun together.”
Harry, in high spirits, mentioned how he had a blast during their week two performance. He admitted, “Last week, I was freaking out. I was nervous, my legs were shaking, but she just made me feel comfortable and excited… She is the best.”
Adding a layer of intrigue to the mix, the day after their candid interview, Harry and Rylee were spotted holding hands at Tate McRae’s Los Angeles concert, fueling the speculation further.
Despite the sparks flying, it seems they’re committed to keeping the mystery alive in their partnership.
Who Has Harry Jowsey Dated?
Harry Jowsey was dating Francesca Farago in 2020. After filming Too Hot to Handle in April 2019, the reality star and Francesca kept dating until calling it quits that summer.
The following February, they made the decision to give their romance another go, but distance and internet drama caused them to break up for good in June 2020. In June 2021, he told Us Weekly,
“I can tell you now [until] forever [that] I’ll never be put in a relationship or put myself in that situation again.”
Georgia Hassarati, a former contender from THTH season 3, and The Floor Is Lava were their most recent romantic partners.
June 2022 saw the beginning of the couple’s romance, just after Georgia and her ex-boyfriend Dom Gabriel broke up following their April Perfect Match victory.
Harry and Georgia had a relationship that was intermittent, ending in a temporary breakup in the fall of 2022 and then sparking up again. In April 2023, the Netflix stars called it quits for good. Harry then said Georgia “kind” of cheated on him.
“I think when they start to take a fancy for other guys while you’re in a relationship,” he stated in an interview with the “Call Her Daddy” podcast on July 19. “You actually have a boyfriend. You shouldn’t be, like, bouncing on that guy.”
Georgia has now refuted the claims of cheating several times and charged Harry with being the one who cheated on her.
