Why do people think they are related?

The main reason why some people might think that Blake Jenner and Bruce Jenner are related is because they share the same last name, which is not very common. However, this is just a coincidence, and there is no evidence that they have any family ties. Another possible reason is that they both have been involved in the entertainment industry, and have appeared in some similar projects. For example, Blake Jenner starred in Glee, a show that featured musical numbers and performances, while Bruce Jenner appeared in Can’t Stop the Music, a movie that was based on the disco group Village People. However, these are also just superficial similarities, and do not imply any relation. In fact, Blake Jenner and Bruce Jenner have never met or worked together, and have very different backgrounds and careers. Therefore, it is safe to say that they are not related at all, and that the rumors are false.
