Colton Underwood Says That Being “The Bachelor” Was His Attempt At “Self-Conversion Therapy”

March 9, 2022 / Posted by:

Colton Underwood made history as the first lead of The Bachelor to come out as a big ol’ homosexual after the show ended. Colton ended up picking a winner, Cassie Randolph, and that ended with her taking out a restraining order against him for stalking her. Colton starred in a Netflix reality show about his coming out and is now engaged to political strategist Jordan C. Brown. While on Watch What Happens Live! this week, Colton told Andy Cohen that he doesn’t want to get a prenup with Jordan (smart if he’s the poorer one). Also during that episode, Colton revealed that he saw The Bachelor as a form of conversion therapy. I mean… it definitely is the straightest thing I can think of.

While on WWHL with Danielle Olivera from Bravo’s Summer House, Andy got to poking at Colton about his coming out journey. Colton admits to Andy that he used to download and delete Grindr but the majority of his homo urges were experienced through the Explore page of his Instagram, which Colton says was his way to “look without being caught.” Wendy Williams just stares out her window. Colton says that while he was definitely peeking at some male hotties online, he was still doing everything else he could to be straight. via HuffPo

“All of the cover-ups and praying, and trying self-conversion therapy on myself by becoming The Bachelor, I pretty much tried everything to be straight, and it didn’t work,” he explained. “I just love being gay now.”

Here’s Colton talking about embracing his gayness now:

Because of all the messiness that happens on The Bachelor, I’m surprised the show doesn’t act as conversion therapy for most of the people on it. And by that I mean, converting them into anti-humanity and anti-marriage activists who would rather die alone than suffer through a reality show and enter into a PR marriage.
