Former NFL player and Bachelor star Colton Underwood came out as gay on Wednesday morning during an interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America. At the time he appeared on the show he wasn't sure if he was into men or women.
Underwood thought he was straight and dated the winner of the show Cassie Randolph as well as former Olympian Aly Raisman for a period of time. It turns out he's not and he apologized to Randolph during the interview.
From Good Morning America:
"I've ran from myself for a long time. I've hated myself for a long time," Underwood told Roberts in a pre-taped chat. "And I'm gay. And I came to terms with that earlier this year and have been processing it. And the next step in all of this was sort of letting people know."
"I'm still nervous, but yeah," he continued. "It's been a journey for sure."

Good for him. Sometimes it takes awhile for people to figure out who they are. Maybe he'll end up doing a gay version of "The Bachelor."
