While “Bachelor” star Colton Underwood has opened up about his sexuality, his ex-girlfriend Cassie Randolph is on vacation in Mexico.
Underwood came out as gay in an interview with “Good Morning America” on Wednesday. The former “Bachelor” frontman revealed he finally came to terms with his true sexual orientation “earlier this year” and had to take the time to process it.
He also issued a public apology to Randolph, to whom he offered his last rose during season 23 of “The Bachelor.”

“It’s hard for me to express exactly what my emotions were going through this relationship with her, because I obviously had an internal struggle going on,” said Underwood, 29. “I would just say I’m sorry from the bottom of my heart. I’m sorry for the pain and emotional stress I have caused.”
Randolph has yet to comment directly on Underwood’s bombshell interview, but she has expressed her thanks to her fans in social media posts.

“Thanks everyone for all the kind comments and messages. It means so much,” Randolph, 25, wrote in an Instagram story Friday, according to Deadline.
Randolph’s time-limited post also indicated that she would take a week’s hiatus from her YouTube channel.
Although fans will have to wait to hear from Randolph, the Season 23 winner posted two Instagram photos on her main feed, which show her vacationing in Cozumel.

Unlike many other “Bachelor” stars, Underwood and Randolph did not get engaged in their 2019 season finale. The couple eventually broke up in May 2020, and for a while, Randolph received a restraining order against Underwood following his “disturbing behavior.”
The temporary restraining order was lifted in November after the two men reached a “private deal.”
