The Bachelor’s Colton Underwood has come out as gay, revealing “I’ve ran from myself for a long time.”

The 29-year-old, who appeared on season 23 of The Bachelor, sat down with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America to address his sexuality.


“I’ve ran from myself for a long time,” Underwood shared. “I’ve hated myself for a long time and I’m gay. I came to terms with that earlier this year and am trying to process it.”

“I’m emotional, but in such a good, happy, positive way,” he revealed. “I’m the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever been in my life.”

Underwood, who revealed in the interview he has “felt different since the age of six,” told GMA viewers he finally felt ready to reveal the news after he got “into a place for me in personal life that was dark and bad.”

Following Underwood’s interview on Good Morning America, The Bachelor issued a statement of support, saying, “We are so inspired by Colton Underwood’s courage to embrace and pursue his authentic self. As firm believers in the power of love, we celebrate Colton’s journey in the LGBTQIA+ community every step of the way.”
