The mystery man Colton was kissing has been identified as Jordan C. Brown.
His new flame is not a stranger to public figures. Based on his Instagram account, Jordan is a familiar face among celebrities having pictured with Olivia Munn, Sophia Bush, Olivia Wilde, and many others.
The Bachelor star’s new man also has an established and impressive career in politics having worked on presidential campaigns for Barack Obama both in 2018 and 2012, John Kerry in 2004 as well as Hillary Clinton in 2016.
As previously reported by Radar, the reality star broke the news about his sexuality during a pre-taped interview with Good Morning America.
The former football player sat down with GMA host Robin Roberts to confess his truth.
“Ive ran from myself for a long time. Ive hated myself for a long time,” he said. “And I’m gay. And I came to terms with that earlier this year and have been processing it. And the next step in all of this was sort of letting people know.”
But shortly after his coming out interview, Colton claimed the confession came after he was threatened for his sexuality to be exposed. He disclosed in an interview that he received an anonymous email from someone claiming to have taken nude photos of him when he secretly visited a gay spa in Los Angeles last year.
“I, at one point, during my rock bottom and spiral, was getting blackmailed. Nobody knows I was blackmailed,” he told the publication.
Within the same month of his appearance on GMA, he was photographed on a lunch date with a mystery man in the Silver Lake. Colton was seen having his arms crossed atop the table while chatting and laughing with his companion shortly after he claimed he wasn't in a rush for dating.
Radar later confirmed the man was “just a friend, nothing romantic.”
Although, it seems like the 29-year-old TV personality has since decided to make progress in his dating life after meeting Jordan.
