Shane Jenek is in a "love triangle" with Andrew Brady and his alter-ego Courtney Act.
The "Celebrity Big Brother" winner has admitted he's fallen in love with the "Apprentice" contestant - who he met in the famous house last month - but there's nothing he can do about it because he knows the businessman only fancies him when he's in drag.
Speaking to The Sun Online, Shane said: "It's not an unrequited relationship, I've been in relationships with straight guys - well friends who I've been in love with and they haven't loved me back that way, and it was damaging to my own psyche.
"I've come through the other side and understand that dynamic now... I understand that he's very handsome and wonderful we have this friendship that was forged in the peculiar environment and we just get on so well. I don't think my love is unrequited with Andrew, I think we both feel the same way about each other but he's just not attracted to male bodied people. It's like a love triangle, because he likes Courtney and I love him."
And, even if Andrew was attracted to him, Shane doesn't think they'd ever get into a relationship because their friendship is so strong and he wouldn't want to ruin that.
He said: "I see Andrew and I as a friendship and I don't think we would be boyfriends even if he was attracted to me. I just value our friendship so much; it brings me joy."
The pair spent over a month with each other in the "CBB" house but will now separate as Shane is returning to the US, while Andrew continues to live his life in the UK.
But, the help him cope with the separation, Andrew gave Shane a teddy bear.
He explained: "I slept with it [the teddy bear called Brady] last night and woke up with it in my arm, and it sounds pathetic but it was actually so pacifying."
