    This Clip Of Colton Underwood And Billy Eichner Is Going Viral Now That Colton Has Come Out

    "You could be the first gay 'Bachelor.'"

    On Wednesday morning, Bachelor star Colton Underwood came out as a gay man on Good Morning America.

    JUST IN: Former “Bachelor” star @Colton Underwood speaks his truth and comes out to @robinroberts: “I’m gay. And I came to terms with that earlier this year and have been processing it… I’m the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever been in my life.” https://t.co/PoYJUAPBpA

    "Obviously, this year has been a lot for a lot of people, and it's probably made a lot of people look themselves in the mirror and figure out who they are and what they've been running from or what they’ve been putting off in their lives," Colton told Robin Roberts. "And, for me, I've ran from myself for a long time — I've hated myself for a long time."

    "I'm gay, and I came to terms with that earlier this year and have been processing it," he continued. "The next step in all of this was letting people know. I'm still nervous, but yeah, it's been a journey. I'm emotional, but I'm emotional in such a good, happy, positive way."

    When Colton was asking Billy what he looks for in a partner, Billy joked, "I'm gay. I know that's a shock, Colton."

    "That, I think, you should look into," Billy said, with that meaning being gay.

    In all seriousness, Colton coming out is such an amazing act of bravery and will hopefully inspire others to come out (when they're ready!).
