So former ‘The Bachelor’ star and NFL player, Colton Underwood has been grappling with some major things in his life and has now sat down with Robin Roberts on GMA to reveal to the world that he is GAY!
As you may remember, Colton had a very CHECKERED history on the reality show… Let’s UNWRAP this….
Colton notoriously jumped a gate during filming in the middle of his season and threatened to leave the show, but ultimately decided to return. He wound up choosing Cassie Randolph, though the 2 never got engaged and — as we reported — had a very messy breakup.
In his GMA interview, Colton said he was sorry for how things ended with Cassie, and that he truly loved everything about her, which made things more difficult. He says he remembers thanking God once he was picked as ‘The Bachelor’ because he believed his prayers to be straight had been answered.
Also worth noting — Colton stated in his March 2020 memoir, “The First Time,” his time on “The Bachelor” actually helped him realize he WASN’T gay. He said he questioned his sexuality in his early 20s … the result of being bullied growing up. The bullies said he was gay, and he says he believed it.
SO….. Colton KNEW he was GAY, took all ABC’s money from ‘Bachelor’ for 2 seasons pursuing a woman when he knew he liked men. Seems like DECEIVING the people for the love of money. Oh well… but I’m sure he will get all the praises in the world because he is a moderately attractive, masculine-appearing WHITE male, so… we already know how the spin is going to go.
GOOD for him for living in his TRUTH however.
