American TV host, singer, and actor Steve Burns is currently single and not gay.
While you might readily remember Burns as the host of the famous preschool television show, ‘Blue’s Clues’, which he hosted for six years from 1996 to 2002, the buzz surrounding his marital status suddenly intensified after he was named one of the most eligible bachelors in the world.
This appointment came from the famous People’s magazine, and the list also included screen heartthrobs Ben Affleck and George Clooney. This became the genesis of the public’s interest in Burns’ love life.
Steve Burns Prefers To Keep His Personal Life Private
Inquiries into the life of the 50-year-old actor didn’t begin today. Unfortunately for the nosy public, Steve has kept his life secret. Information about his romantic life has been downright impossible to access.
Although Steve is active on Instagram with over 301k followers, his posts are rarely about women. A power walk through his Instagram page will reveal that he has a dog that lives with him in his Brooklyn apartment.
Steve Burns is still fully committed to keeping his private life away from the public eye. His Instagram name @steveburnsalive is a testament to the fact that the actor had once been involved in a myriad of questionable rumors. One of the rumors even claimed he had died in an automobile crash. Steve is still alive and well, but that’s about all the information we can garner now.
Is Steve Burns Married To Loonette?
Steve Burns has never been married, and no, he was never married to any woman named Loonette. After the surprise of having his name on the 2001 list of the most eligible bachelors in the world, Steve explained that he began receiving a deluge of messages from women worldwide.
In 2020, rumors surfaced that he was in a relationship with American actress Alyson Court who played Lonette in the show ‘Big Comfystories.’ The stories have since been debunked as there was never any such between them.
Still, the rumors weren’t created from mere hearsay alone. In 2020, Steve Burns posted a picture of him and Alyson together on his Instagram. Alyson also posted the same picture on her Twitter page with the caption: “No biggie, just hanging with my buddy Steve.”
Still, clarifications made by the duo revealed that they were neither dating nor married but were simply platonic friends. Further credence was lent to the explanation after the realization that Alyson herself was not available as she was already married to someone else.
The pair (Alyson and Steve) met each other while working on ‘Blue’s Clues. It was revealed that Steve Burns wrote the Blue’s Clues Halloween episode for Octattack01, and the attack was directed by Alyson Court herself.
Alyson had an explanation for their enviable work chemistry. She admitted to having a great working relationship with Steve, saying they worked so well together because they both “liked to push and play up the comedy.” There isn’t further information about the present state of their friendship.
Steve has remained unfazed despite all the attention from the female populace. As you already know, Steve is still unmarried in 2022 and seems likely to stay that way for a long while.
Is the TV Host Gay?
His monk lifestyle finally gave birth to rumors that he was gay and still hiding in the closet. However, on September 10, 2021, Burns made his first television appearance in over 19 years, and it seems he isn’t gay.
Although we are not sure about this, there is still no evidence proving he is gay or revealing his sexual orientation. Until then, it can only be assumed he is straight and just loves to stay private with his relationships.
Who Has Steve Dated In the Past?
As stated, Steve Burns has seldom been seen with a potential romantic partner in public. The actor once told how he used his status as one of the world’s most eligible bachelors to pick women up.
27-year-old at the time, the actor admitted that he began getting more attention than he’d ever gotten. He even got an invitation from a Playboy model delivered to his Nickelodeon office.
The letter was accompanied by a note containing her phone number, asking him to call and invite her to dinner. Although intensely skeptical about its genuineness, Steve did try the number and fixed the date. According to the actor cum musician, the date started on an awkward note as he stood several inches below the elegant, 6-feet-tall model.
Further awkwardness ensued as the date progressed as the two seemed to have almost nothing in common. Luckily for Steve, he turned things around by gate-crashing a Blue’s Clues-themed birthday party. He immediately wore his costume, transforming into the beloved television character. He not only made the birthday celebrant happy, he finally managed to break the ice between himself and his date.
Upon reaching Steve’s apartment—yes, she agreed to go home with him—she asked him to “sing that song about the mail”, a popular song sung on the Blues Clues show. When Steve thought his date was finally going well, he realized that the entire setup was only a ploy to seduce him into hosting a children’s TV show called ‘The Balloonies.’
Steve politely declined the proposition, but sadly, the relationship with the model couldn’t continue. That was the first and only time the actor had willingly volunteered information about himself to the public. He appears to be single currently, but if there is anything to know about Steve Burns, it’s that he only lets you see what he wants you to see.
