COLTON Underwood is the first former Bachelor contestant to openly come out as gay.
Colton’s six part Netflix documentary focusing on his life as a gay man will premiere on December 3, 2021.
Is Colton Underwood single?
Brown is reportedly 38-years-old and has worked on many high profile political campaigns like Barack Obama’s 2008 and 2012 campaign and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.
The former Bachelor star seemed to be engrossed in his phone as he enjoyed being out and proud with his pals including Olympian Gus, 29.
TMZ reported Gus will star alongside him in his Netflix series.
Some fans have ripped Colton and say the TV star “does not deserve a platform in any way” as a result of his “dangerous behavior” towards his ex Cassie Randolph.
Organizers have now kicked up a “Cancel Colton Underwood’s Netflix Documentary” petition.
When did Colton Underwood announce he was gay?
Colton came out to the world as gay in a candid TV interview on Good Morning American on April 14, 2021.
He began: “This year has been a lot for a lot of people. It’s probably made a lot of people look in the mirror and confront what they were running from.
“For me, I’ve run from myself for a long time, and I’ve hated myself for a long time. I’m gay. And I came to terms with that earlier this year. The next step in all of this was letting people know. I’m still nervous, it’s been a journey for sure.”
He told Robin that he’s now the “happiest and healthiest” he’s ever been in his life after overcoming a bout of depression.
At one point, he claimed he would’ve rather died than admitted that he was gay.
When asked if he had ever harmed himself, Colton replied: “There was a moment in LA that I woke up where I didn’t think I was going to wake up. I didn’t have the intentions of waking up , and I think for me, that was my wake-up call of ‘this is your life, take back control.’
“Looking beyond that, even just suicidal thoughts, driving my car close to a cliff and thinking ‘if I drive my car off this cliff it’s not that big of a deal…'”
“I don’t feel that anymore,” he declared.
Colton previously opened up about questioning his sexuality in his memoir The First Time, but denied that he was gay.
What did Cassie Randolph say about Colton Underwood coming out?
Cassie Randolph thanked her fans for “all of the kind comments” after Colton “blindsided” her coming out as gay.
Cassie, 25, took to her Instagram Stories and wrote: “Thank you everyone for the kind comments and messages. It means so much.
“And yes, some of you are asking about my YouTube for this week. I decided to take the week off, but will have one again next week!!”
During his time on the ABC dating competition show, Colton fell head over heels for Cassie Randolph.
The pair dated for 18 months after the season finale of The Bachelor season 23, though eventually called it quits in May 2020.
Following news of their split, a source told People that the two had different priorities and ultimately knew they weren’t going to work.
While the split was originally believed to be amicable, things got messy when Cassie, 25, filed a restraining order against Colton.
Back in September, Cassie accused Colton of “stalking” and “tracking her car.”
She was granted a temporary restraining order that forced Colton to stay at least 100 yards away from her, in addition to her car, home, workplace, and school.
She would later drop the restraining order.
