While Brown might not be who you’d expect Underwood to date, fans of the Coming Out Colton docuseries may not be as surprised to see him with a salt-and-pepper stud. During filming for his Netflix show, Underwood confessed to friend Gus Kenworthy that he was looking for “an old soul.”

Now, Underwood is gushing about their relationship. He says, “Jordan has been my rock throughout the last year. He has been supportive, incredible, loving, and kind. I could go on and on for hours.”
