Gabe Saporta is a Jewish/Uruguayan-American singer and frontman of the bands Cobra Starship and Midtown. He is married to Erin Fetherston. His father is Diego Saporta. He does not put the toilet seat down after using the bathroom. [1]

He appears frequently as a character in Bandom fanfic.

Shipping

Notably, Gabe is most often paired with members of other bands, rather than his own bandmembers, likely because as a character in fanfic he is more popular than the bands he has been in.[2][3] On the AO3, the most popular Gabe ship is Gabe/William aka Gabilliam with 520 fanworks as of June 2016.[4] Other AO3 Gabe ships include Gabe Saporta/Pete Wentz, Gabe Saporta/Mikey Way, Gabe Saporta/Patrick Stump, and Victoria Asher/Gabe Saporta. There are also a few fanworks about the canon pairing Gabe Saporta/Erin Fetherston.

  3. December 2007 anonmeme complaint: "I love Gabe Saporta. That being said, I really wish bandom would realize that 'hey, there's actually four other people in cobra starship! let's include them!' As much as I love Gabe, I love the other Cobras too. Where's all the Nate, Ryland, Alex, and Victoria love guys?" Unpopular bandom opinions ahoy!: untappedbeauty, Archived version
