Jason, 24, has a strong relationship with God, but is hesitant about church. He used to love it, even participating as a pastor’s assistant. Then the rumors started the he’s gay. ”That took a huge toll on me,” says the native of Oxon Hill, Md. ”I’m not as involved as I used to be. The only reason I’m still going is it’s right down the hill from my house and I’m really lazy on Sunday mornings.” These days, Jason’s passion is a bit more focused on modeling and poetry. There’s also the dancing – at Bachelor’s Mill, Fireplace, Omega and Town – even if he hopes you don’t mistake his style for a come-on. ”It’s exotic and erotic. I kind of give people the wrong impression. But if my song is on, you’re going to get it.”
