The big news of the day?

Former The Bachelor star Colton Underwood came out as gay.

Underwood, who was the problematic titular bachelor in 2019's season of the hit series, came out publicly in an interview with Good Morning America's Robin Roberts. The former reality star previously drew backlash over stories he stalked and harassed a woman from the show, Cassie Randolph.

As for his more recent headlines, someone may have predicted it beforehand...

Out gay star Billy Eichner (Difficult People, Billy On The Street) met Underwood during The Bachelor.

"Maybe you're the first gay bachelor and we don't even know!" said Eichner on set, to which Underwood stammered a response and then cut himself off rather quickly.

Eichner acknowledged the gift of prophecy on his Twitter.

And the rest of the internet certainly reacted to it as well.




Underwood's coming out was reportedly a difficult one for him.

While struggling to accept his sexuality, he had thoughts of suicide.

"There was a moment in L.A. that I woke up and I didn't think I was going to wake up. I didn't have the intentions of waking up. And I did. And for me, I think that was my wake-up call of, 'This is your life. Take back control'."




As for dating, Underwood says he's not there yet.

"I still haven't had an emotional connection with a man. I've never allowed myself to, and it's never been, sort of, in my cards to let myself get there. And I want to more than anything. I'm looking for someone who can push me and challenge me in all the great ways."



Eichner may have predicted this bit of the future, but Underwood's journey is just beginning.

Billy dropped a second prediction in response to the news.



Congratulations to Colton Underwood on coming out, and congratulations to Billy Eichner for becoming the new gay oracle.
