Former NFL player turned "Bachelor" Colton Underwood says he would literally hide from his teammates in the locker room during his football playing days because he was terrified he would get turned on and be outed as gay.

Colton opened up about being in the closet throughout his athletic career in an interview, claiming he went through extreme measures to make sure no one knew about his sexuality.

He said, “I wouldn't shower after practice because I was afraid of getting turned on in the locker room or in the shower. I never really was attracted to anybody who I played with, or coaches. So, it's sort of silly to even say that. But, I wanted to avoid any chance of being outed, so I would not shower with the rest of the team.”

Colton would change clothes in a corner or in a bathroom stall or just leave the locker room entirely.

He said, “There was just a lot of things that I sort of did differently than other players because I felt like I had to, because I didn't want questions to start being asked.”

Now, Colton is openly gay and dating political strategist Jordan C. Brown, who he went Instagram official with earlier this month.
