* Former MySpace girl and MTV star Tila Tequila has flip-flopped on her sexual orientation a few times. She initially described herself as heterosexual during her early MySpace days, and then included a surprise announcement during the first episode of her MTV dating show ''A Shot at Love'' that she was bisexual and the show would feature male and female contestants. After the show ended she stated MTV pressured her to select male contestants, and that, "I finally realized that Iím lesbian. Not bisexual. I love women." She dated women exclusively for several years, and was engaged to heiress Casey Johnson. By 2013 she was back to dating men and gave birth to her first child. Around that time her primary occupation seemed to become spouting on social media about her pro-Nazi views and condemning the LGBT community.

* Gamzee in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' was unique amongst the shipping-obsessed trolls to have shown no romantic or sexual attraction to anyone of any kind, even the trolls's platonic romances. Later on, a flashback showed Gamzee [[HoYay suggesting that he and Tavros make out]]. Due to [[spoiler:Tavros being dead and Gamzee being [[AxCrazy murderously crazy]]]], it remains to be seen if this will be brought up again. Less of a case than most since trolls are a culture where [[EveryoneIsBi most individuals are bi/pan]], and gender seems to have no physical impact on reproduction.

Later on, a flashback showed Gamzee [[HoYay suggesting that he and Tavros make out]]. Due Trolls in ''Homestuck'' are all bisexual due to [[spoiler:Tavros being dead the fact that biological sex doesn't influence their reproduction, but since he'd only ever shown interest in Tavros and Gamzee being [[AxCrazy murderously crazy]]]], platonic interest in other male trolls, many fans revised their suggestion to assume that he was gay (similar to the lesbian troll, Kanaya). Then it remains became a huge shock when he was revealed to be seen if this will be brought up again. Less of in a case than most since trolls are a culture where [[EveryoneIsBi most individuals are bi/pan]], and gender seems to have no physical impact on reproduction.DestructiveRomance with Terezi.

* In Todd's first appearance in ''WesternAnimation/BoJackHorseman'' he's implied to have had a tragic romance with a Mexican gangster named Gabriella, and in his second episode he's Skyping in his underpants to his Japanese 'girlfriend'. When he uses the machine from ''Series/FamilyMatters'' that turned Steve Urkel into Stefan Urquelle, he becomes a smooth ladies' man. By Season 3 he'd rather play with his old girlfriend in a laundry basket and pretend to be ghosts instead of sleeping with her, and comes out as [[{{Asexuality}} asexual]] at the end of the season.

* Dono, ex Donna, Vorrutyer in the Literature/VorkosiganSaga probably belongs here. There is no mention of any lesbian tendencies being displayed as Donna, but after his EasySexChange, Dono shows interest only in mating with women, and is engaged or about-to-be by the end of ACivilCampaign.

* Obsidian, a DCComics {{superhero}}, is in the modern age written as an openly gay character despite having dated women in the past and having poor luck with them. He's had a lot more success after coming out, having a steady boyfriend in Damon, assistant to Kate Spencer (a.k.a. Comicbook/{{Manhunter}}).

* Depending on how you see it, Fiona on ''Series/{{Degrassi}}'', who just came out, may be this. On one hand, she was never shown to have interest in girls and had a boyfriend; on the other hand there was some LesYay between her and Holly J and she was seen to have flawed relationships with men.

In the end his lover feels regret and offers to turn him back, but Michael decides that he's happier as he is.]]

It turns out that River was in fact quite het, and instead was simply drunk and having a slight mental episode, and the entire incident was foreshadowing [[spoiler: the introduction of John Garis/Echo, an agent of the Academy who she was lured into a relationship with in order to keep her mentally stable and to not commit suicide.]] ....ItMakesSenseInContext.

* In her book ''Commencement,'' J. Courtney Sullivan avoids the more obvious choice of using StrawFeminist April for this, making her (reluctantly) heterosexual - and gives the coming-out story to the least likely member of her FourGirlEnsemble: [[spoiler:Bree, the SouthernBelle who arrives at Smith with plans to marry her high school boyfriend - before she meets [[ClosetKey Lara]].]] Subverted to some degree in that she has difficulty identifying as lesbian/bi and sees Lara as a case of IfItsYouItsOkay.

%%* [[spoiler: Haddie Braverman]] on ''{{Parenthood}}''.
* Hunter from the US version of ''Series/QueerAsFolk''. Since he entered the show as a prostitute and then showed a particular interest in Brian when they first met, everyone assumes that he's gay. Until he falls in love with a girl and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny comes out as straight]] to his foster parents.
* Bev from ''{{Roseanne}}'' is revealed as a lesbian near the end of the series, in order to provide irony with her being a conservative prude. Prior to her coming out episode, she had a husband and a boyfriend, the latter of whom she seemed very interested in.
