Former Bachelor Contestant Colton Underwood Comes Out As Gay.

In an interview with Good Morning America‘s Robin Roberts on Wednesday, former football start Colton Underwood — who headlined Season 23 of the ABC “reality” show The Bachelor— confirmed the longstanding rumor.

He is gay.

Underwood’s being a virgin was a plot point The Bachelor seized on. It also fueled rumors that he was gay — which he had previously denied.

Titled “Colton Underwood: In His Own Words,” the former “Bachelor” star opens up to Roberts:

“There is something that you want people to know, so can you tell us what is on your heart that you want to share?” Roberts asks Underwood in the clip.

“Yeah,” he responds as he takes a deep breath. “It’s been a journey, for sure.”

This year’s been a lot for a lot of people and it’s probably made a lot of people look at themselves in the year and figure out who they are,” he shared. “I’ve ran from myself for a long time, I’ve hated myself for a long time. I’m gay. I came to terms with that earlier this year, and the next step in all of this was sort of letting people know. … I’m the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever been in my life. That means the world to me.” Colton Underwood
