Colton Underwood opens up about his sexuality and past relationships on reality television.

The Bachelor alum — who came out as gay in 2021 — explained why he labels himself “75% gay” in a recent conversation with ex Hannah Brown, as they discussed when she began questioning Underwood’s sexuality and how his husband Jordan C. Brown could I don’t believe the viewers didn’t get it.

“I still identify as gay, but on the spectrum, I’d say I’m 75% gay,” Underwood, 31, shared with Brown, 28, on Wednesday’s episode of her Better tomorrow podcast.

He explained that “there’s still an attraction, an appreciation and an emotional connection that I can still have with women, but I don’t want to pursue that.”

“It’s not my life partner,” Underwood continued. “My partner in life is Jordan, a man, and that’s what I’ve always wanted, but I’ve never felt comfortable saying it and I honestly didn’t even know it was like that until I realized it and really understood it.”

“But if I had to break it down into percentages, more or less, that’s about where it is,” he noted of his sexual identity. “It might be confusing for some people, but I think that’s where the male and female energies change, the sliding scale and it changes — I think that’s the easiest way to explain my sexuality,”

Brown — who dated Underwood as a contestant on his season Bachelor in 2019 — then questioned whether he’s “ever truly been in love with a woman” now that he’s married and can look back on his journey toward understanding and coming to terms with his sexuality.
