Colton Underwood kissed a boy and he liked it.
The former pro football player and season 23 lead of ABC's reality dating series The Bachelor was snapped smooching political strategist Jordan C. Brown at the Four Seasons resort in Maui recently. TMZ obtained exclusive photos of the relaxed couple, wearing little more than swimsuits, sunscreen, and a smile, sunning themselves in side-by-side lounge chairs on the beach before leaning in for a quick kiss.
A source told Page Six the pair are a couple and revealed the two were far more intimate at the beachfront luxury resort.
“They were all over each other at the resort,” the source said.
It’s unclear how long the pair have been an item, but Underwood and Brown both visited Provincetown earlier this year when Underwood was spotted hanging out with Olympian Gus Kenworthy, who Brown is also friends with. (Underwood and Kenworthy are reportedly working on a new reality show together.)
Brown is a well-connected political fundraiser, having worked with multiple Democratic presidential campaigns, including Hillary Clinton’s and both Barack Obama’s campaigns.
Underwood famously came out as gay in an interview in April.
“For me, I've run from myself for a long time, I've hated myself for a long time and...I’m gay,” the former NFL player told Good Morning America. “I came to terms with that earlier this year and have been processing all of that. The next step in all of that is been letting people know.”
Not long after he came out, it was revealed that Underwood had been signed to star in his own unscripted reality show on Netflix, with Olympian Gus Kenworthy serving as his “gay guide” periodically.
Underwood also revealed in May that pictures taken of him naked at a gay spa had been used to blackmail him.
“I’ll just say it,” Underwood told Variety. “I, at one point, during my rock bottom and spiral, was getting blackmailed. Nobody knows I was blackmailed.”
More recently, Underwood showed off a rougher, edgier side to him in a new photo series where he donned leather and cigars and showed off his famously hairy chest.
So far, both Underwood and Brown have been mum about their relationship.
