“I’m super proud and excited for her,” Colton exclusively told E! News at the Pickle! For Purpose Celebrity Pickleball Tournament, a Sept. 30 fundraiser in support of The Colton Underwood Legacy Foundation’s efforts to provide mental health resources for student athletes. “I’m just extremely proud of anybody from that franchise or any of the TV and reality world that gets to live their truth.”
“I know it’s challenging going through a show like that with just the pressures of America rooting for a relationship without being in it,” he continued, adding that it’s “really important” for queer people to be visible in the world.
