Bankrupt Atlanta millionaire Todd Chrisley is OK with becoming “a gay pop icon.” But he's not gay. Unless you watch the premiere of his new reality show, which quip by sassy quip will convince you otherwise.

Chrisley admits that persistent gay rumors swirl around him, despite an 18-year-marriage and five kids. Celebrating his 40th birthday with an Elton John concert didn't help. But he swore off coming out during Tuesday's premiere of “Chrisley Knows Best,” his new USA reality show.

He tells People:

“There's no coming out,” says the Atlanta millionaire, who's been married to wife Julie for 18 years and has five children. “What you see is what you get. I am what I am. Other people's opinions of me are just not my business.”

But the supercut above of his gayest moments from the show's first two episodes – pageant queens, Martha Stewart, fashion and more – demonstrate that Chrisley's daughter Lindsie may be on to something.

Later, Chrisley says his eldest daughter, Lindsay, told him to be ready to become a gay pop icon.

“I said, 'Lindsie, I'd rather be a gay pop icon than I would a redneck … I'm 45. I really don't care what your opinion of me is. The fact that you are thinking about I'm doing in my bedroom at 45 is exciting to me.”
