Billy Eichner’s Gay Joke About Colton Underwood Doesn’t Age Well – Deadline


Billy Eichner, who had a brief cameo on reality show The Bachelor in 2019 and joked about being gay with Colton Underwood, came out today with support for his friend.

The Eichner Season 23 clip circulated today in the wake of Underwood’s bombshell Good Morning America interview revealing his previously hidden sex preference.

In 2019, the Billy on the Street star, 42, had a brief cameo during one of the group dates on the show. When he later joined Underwood and host Chris Harrison, Eichner joked, “I’m gay. I know that’s a shock, Colton. And that I think you should look into.”

He added, “Maybe you’re the first gay Bachelor and we don’t even know.”

Eichner’s attempt at a joke obviously didn’t age well, and today he praised Underwood’s courage.

“I’m happy for @colton. If you’re gay, be gay! I’ve been gay forever & I love it!” the Lion King actor tweeted. He later posted, “Here’s how Hollywood works: Colton’s gonna get a GLAAD Award before I do.”

Underwood was appreciative of Eichner’s support in his own Instagram post today. “Love you. Love this (now) and now I love being gay,” he replied on the comedian’s clip of him from The Bachelor.

Eichner commented back, “I’m happy for you. See you at the club, Colton!”
