He continued, “It’s been kicking my ass, just to put it pretty bluntly,” he said. “The main thing is I can’t even walk up a flight of stairs without being out of breath or go to the bathroom without having to sit down because I’m exhausted.”

The reality star then admits he was not symptomatic until a few days ago, and since he is staying with his girlfriend, Cassie Randolph, and her family -- he has exposed them to the virus.

“I’m doing okay, I’m at Cassie’s family’s house in Huntington [Beach, California], so I’m fortunate to have them. unfortunately, that means we’re all in this together, at this point. So we’ll keep you posted, but we’re in good spirits," Underwood says.

I just want to encourage everybody to stay at home. Stay in your house and do your part and take care of one another.”

The reality star captioned the video with more information about how he contracted the virus and was encouraged he will be ok following the diagnosis.
