Underwood Recently Came Out
On April 14, Underwood was on “Good Morning America” with Robin Roberts, and he officially came out as gay, opening up about how he struggled with his sexual identity and accepting who he was for a long time.
He told Roberts; “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 had first disclosed his sexuality to his publicist, a year before the exclusive interview with Roberts. He noted to Variety that the confession was prompted out of fear.
He alleged that he was getting blackmailed by an anonymous person with nude photos him at a spa known for servicing a gay clientele, and had to turn to his publicist about the situation.
He Experimented With Men Before ‘The Bachelor’
In May, Underwood then revealed that he had experimented sexually with men before he joined the reality show, “The Bachelor” where several women vied for his love, and where he infamously jumped over a fence to get together with Cassie Randolph, who won the season and dated him until May, 2020.
He opened up to Variety, telling the outlet; “I was the Virgin Bachelor, but I did experiment with men before being on The Bachelorette. I mean ‘hookups’, not sex. I did not have sex with a man prior to the show.”
He also revealed during the “Good Morning America” discussion that he had never allowed himself to create any emotional connection with men.
He stated that “it has never been, sort of, in my cards to let myself get there, and that is something I want to more than anything.., I’m just looking for someone who can push and challenge me in all the right and great ways”
The Future For Underwood & Brown
We’re all cheesing over the new cute couple, and waiting for more of that tanned, cute PDA.
With Underwood’s upcoming Netflix show about his adjustment to life as a gay public figure on the backdrop of his past as “The Bachelor,” supporters might see more of Brown and maybe even a feature on the show.
Underwood went through a great deal to be where he is today, doing the things he wants and how he wants them. We wish him the best in this new love phase.
