I found him to be quite masculine and attractive in that "can do" sort of way. His familiarity with oven cleaning connotes great husband material, and he seems kind to the elderly!
I'm actually surprised that anyone would question the sexual orientation of Mike Rowe!
He was the ONLY straight male ever to hawk faux floral arrangements on QVC.
The context of his answers shows some evasion. My vote - very highg probability he's gay.
You forgot: "He's British so who can tell?"
P.S. Gaydar is an interactive process. It's not the same as guessing based on mannerisms. Anyone can do that.
Celebrity crush Emma Watson? Most teenage boys go for a more ridiculous overtly trampy woman, and he picks Emma Watson?
He only said Emma Watson because all the guys in his class had crushes on her. Gay.
Voyager 1 has just left the heliosphere beyond Pluto and he still pings it's gaydar.
The key is Emma Watson. Safe, prematurely maternal, sexless, a total hag. For me, it was Sandra Bullock. I actually had a poster of her on my wall as a teen (instead of Pam Anderson like all my friends).
Michael Jackson would have bought him things, and taken him on trips (up until he was 14).
