According to Variety, former Bachelor winner Cassie Randolph declined an invitation to feature in her ex-boyfriend Colton Underwood’s upcoming Netflix program.
Coming Out Colton, a new documentary series about Underwood accepting his life as a part of the LGBTQ community, reportedly offered Randolph pay to appear on the show. However, the ex-reality star was rejected.
According to Variety sources, the plan would have been for the previous couple to get down for a face-to-face chat about Underwood’s orientation and the errors he made after the couple split up.
Randolph and Underwood first met on the 23rd season of ABC’s The Bachelor and started dating in 2019.
The couple divorced in May 2020. Randolph later got a restraining order against Underwood, stating that he pursued her, sent disturbing text messages, and planted a monitoring device beneath her car.
Randolph eventually rescinded the protection order and ended the police inquiry.
During the storm’s thick, Underwood appeared on Good Morning America and revealed that he was homosexual. Some wondered whether the former football star exploited his sexuality to divert attention away from his previous actions.
The revelation of his Netflix program prompted a Change.org petition urging the streaming service to reject the series due to stalking claims.
Randolph and Underwood have yet to respond to this article. According to Variety, Randolph has no desire to be connected with Underwood.
Coming Out Colton, which premieres today on Netflix, depicts Underwood’s opening to friends and family, including his father.
“This sounds bad, but the day I received the restraining order on me, I realized things had to happen,” Underwood confesses to his dad in the series.
“I was so wedded to my typical life and a heterosexual relationship,” he says. “I did not want to let this go since I did not want to deal with it.”
Coming Out Colton premieres on Netflix on Friday, December 3rd.
