Colton Underwood is not stopping
In a recently published podcast interview with expert Bachelor Nation Reality Steve, 28-year-old former pro footballer details his “failure” with reality TV exclusivity, going so far as to say that the producers took the “advantage” and “abused” his ex-girlfriend Cassie Randolph during its July presentation at a The greatest seasons ever special episode. But before revealing exactly why he is “not in a good place” with the franchise, Colton revealed how much his mental health suffered as a result of the show.
Recalling an incident in February 2019 in which a female fan allegedly buried him at a charity event, Colton said: “I just remember feeling so helpless and like such a piece of meat. That to me was a point big turn in my mental health, like, ‘Wow, I have no clue about who I am right now.’ And it got very bad. It got dark. “
Things only got worse for Colton when he finished production on his season Bachelor and came face to face with the “size” of his sudden star. During a trip to Las Vegas with Jason Tartick and Blake Horstmann, Colton said he attended a concert where fans were dealing with him.
From this point on, Colton said he began to experience social anxiety while in public. “I had so much anxiety and so much depression that I was like, for most of my season [airing], I was quite treated. I will not lie. “I was taking medication for anxiety and depression throughout the season,” he shared.
