Former Attitude cover star Gus has been navigating life as a gay public figure ever since winning the silver medal in Men's slopestyle at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

"I’ve hated myself for a long time"

In his interview with GMA's Robin Roberts yesterday, Underwood said: "I’ve run from myself for a long time and I’ve hated myself for a long time, and I'm gay."

The star added: "Obviously this year’s 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.

"[...] I came to terms with that earlier this year and have been processing it."

Colton first appeared as a contestant on The Bachelor in 2018. He was then the lead the following year, naming contestant Cassie Randolph as the winner with no proposal.

Attitude has approached Colton, Gus, and Netflix for comment.
