Katie Couric's long-awaited, and equally as teased, interview with Manti Te'o aired this afternoon. Couric was not shy about addressing one of the most popular hypotheses about Te'o: "One of the theories, many theories, Manti, making the rounds is somehow you created this whole scenario to cover up your sexual orientation," Katie Couric begins. "Are you gay?"

"No. Far from it. Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar from it."

You're the gay one, Katie. I'm not gay. I love chicks. The way they smell, how they get, um, you know. You're the gay one!
