Colton Underwood Reacts to Viral 'Bachelor' Clip of Billy Eichner Suggesting He's the 'First Gay Bachelor'

Colton Underwood is reacting to a clip of The Bachelor that went incredibly viral featuring Billy Eichner.

After Colton came out as gay on Wednesday (April 14), fans quickly remembered a moment during his season in 2019 when the comedian showed up to provide advice and banter – with some unintended foreshadowing.

“I’m gay. I know that’s a shock, Colton. And that, I think, you should look into. Maybe you’re the first gay Bachelor and we don’t even know!” Billy joked at that time.

“Congrats @coltonunderwood. If you’re gay, be gay! I’ve been gay forever and I love it!” Billy captioned a clip of that viral moment on his Instagram.

“Love you. Love this (now) and now I love being gay,” Colton replied in the comments, to which Billy responded: “See you at the club, Colton!”

Billy Eichner Instagram comments

Billy Eichner also got candid on Twitter about the experience of coming out in Hollywood.

“Two things. Number one, pop culture now sometimes makes it seem like every 14 year old gay boy is flying out of the closet without a care in the world. Some are. And that’s INCREDIBLE. But many are not. So let’s remember that. AND let’s ALSO honor and praise those in entertainment who came out years – DECADES – before it was embraced and could be used to professional advantage. I don’t mean me – I mean many others, especially those before me – that took real guts. Let’s put some shine on them too,” Billy wrote on Twitter.

Colton also seemingly confirmed this regarding his relationship with ex Cassie Randolph.
