Colton Underwood's reflective, new Netflix reality series is almost here, and the streamer just released the first trailer to give viewers a look at what we can expect to see — which includes the 29-year-old confronting his demons.
As previously reported, out, Olympic freeskier Gus Kenworthy is seen throughout the trailer of the docuseries acting as sort of a gay guide/big brother to Underwood, giving sage advice and offering lots of words of wisdom to the former Bachelor star who publicly came out as gay earlier this year in a tell-all interview with Good Morning America's Robin Roberts.
"I didn't want to be gay," Underwood says at the beginning of the over two-minute-long first look. "The main voices in my head were just telling me, 'You'll get through this, you'll get through this, you'll get through this.'"
Though the show looks like it's going to portray Underwood in a more positive light, from the looks of the trailer, it is not going to completely absolve him from some of the controversies he has courted in the past, including the drama regarding him and his ex-girlfriend Cassie Randolph.
At one point in the clip, the controversy behind the restraining order Underwood's ex and fellow Bachelor co-star Randolph filed against him after he allegedly stalked her gets addressed, with his own father Scott putting him on blast and calling out his past behavior.
"Cassie filed a restraining order against you," Scott tells Colton. "You went off the rails."
"What you put her through was bullsh*t," another friend of Underwood's tells him elsewhere in the trailer.
Underwood first appeared as a contestant on the 14th season of ABC's popular reality dating competition The Bachelorette in 2018 and later appeared on of Bachelor in Paradise before leading The Bachelor’s season 23 in 2019. He was famously marketed as the “virgin Bachelor” and did not propose to Cassie Randolph even after giving her his final rose. Their relationship took a decidedly nasty and public turn when Randolph accused Underwood of stalking her, and she later filed a restraining order against him in 2020, although she eventually dropped the order.
From the looks of it, the show is going to be an emotional rollercoaster for all involved. Will you be watching?
Coming Out Colton premieres Friday, December 3 on Netflix.
