'Bachelorette' Star Shamed For His Virginity Defends Himself


Colton Underwood, a 26-year-old retired NFL player and ex-boyfriend of Olympian Aly Raisman, has been in the spotlight on the most recent season of the Bachelorette for being the one out-and-proud virgin on the show, and has gotten quite a bit of flack for it.

During Monday night's “Men tell All” episode, some of the other guys had some particularly nasty comments regarding Underwood’s virginity.

Underwood said that he felt “ashamed” of his virginity as a professional athlete and “made up a lot of lies” to cover up that fact about him, telling "Bachelorette" contestant Becca Kufrin that he just hasn’t found “the right heart.”

He decided to take to social media after the episode aired to share his heartfelt perspective.

"If I have to continue to take cheap shots about my virginity -- which is only a small part of who I am -- so that others like me can feel comfortable & relate -- Bring it on!" Underwood wrote. "My virginity shouldn't have to be defended or used to describe me as a person."

Several users responded to his post with love and support.

Jean Blanc, a fellow contestant who'd told Underwood, "And I mean, Colton, you're acting like a p***y, but you've never been f****d," has since apologized to Colton for his derogatory comments.
