Oh how we love gay listicles. We love them even more when they include bachelors from gay Atlanta. But does Out know something we don’t about Don Lemon, the Atlanta-based gay CNN anchor who was not all that long ago talking about babies and marriage with his partner?
He is among a handful of Atlanta guys included in Out’s third annual “100 Most Eligible Bachelors,” which was released on Wednesday. There’s Lemon, Coca-Cola executive Jonathan Mildenhall and entertainment blogger Arjan Timmermans, who lived in Atlanta for years before jetting off to L.A., in the mix of the others from around the globe.
Lemon and Timmermans even swapped some tweets at the Grammys on Sunday.

But it’s the inclusion of Lemon in the Out list that’s left us scratching our head. Lemon favors a muscled gladiator, doesn’t chase the chubs, is used to being a lust object, gets embarrassed over his vibrators and has rumored romances with celebs. But he’s always come home to partner Ben Tinker and the love shack they share in Virginia-Highland.
Or so we thought.
Lemon joins a long list of hotties in the Out feature. Several have been among our faves in the Morning Fix. We’re talking about you Eliad Cohen, Yigit Pura and Ji Wallace. Others are of note for their expertise—Tim Gunn (fashion), Davey Wavey (fitness and abs) and Fredrik Eklund (porn).
