Watch: Colton Underwood Kissing New Beau at Hawaiian Resort Used in 'White Lotus'

Wednesday September 1, 2021

The Four Seasons in Maui has received a lot of attention lately for having been the setting for HBO's breakout hit "The White Lotus" for six weeks this summer. In the show a group of well-to-do mostly white Americans visit the resort for one week for a luxe vacation with plenty of drama.

This week the retreat — the Four Seasons, not the White Lotus — is back in the news due to one of its guests: Colton Underwood, the former "Bachelor" star who came out with much media attention last April in a splashy "Good Morning America" interview. And he's at the resort, TMZ reports, with a "mystery man," whom the site identifies as "Colton's new beau is Jordan C. Brown."

While paparazzi has caught the two cuddling and kissing on the beach, there is no doubt a film crew on hand to capture Underwood romance for his upcoming Netflix reality show. On the show he is being mentored by out Olympian and social influencer Gus Kenworthy (though is not known is Kenworthy is in Hawaii). Earlier this summer, Underwood joined Kenworthy on a trip to Ptown, and they shared a pic together with a group of friends. Brown was also on the trip, but was not photographed with Underwood.

"Jordan is very involved in politics, having worked on John Kerry's presidential campaign in 2004 and also advising on Barack Obama's campaigns in both 2008 and 2012 ... helping fundraise. He also worked on Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign," adds TMZ.

In an Instagram pic he posed with Pete and Chasten Buttigieg.

"Jordan C. Brown is a seasoned political strategist working at the intersection of politics, technology, and entertainment to drive progressive social change," writes his LinkedIn profile. "As the founder of One Blue Hill he partners with high-profile celebrities, business leaders, and elected officials to achieve innovative advocacy and philanthropic goals."

His LinkedIn profile also mentioned that he is a California native who lives in Los Angeles with his partner Paul, their two children, four chickens, and one dog.

"Brown shares his daughters with his ex-partner Paul Rusconi, who is a painter. There are still traces of their relationship on Brown's Instagram, such as a February 2020 post that reads, 'Well this is fun. @sophiabush on the cover of @elledecor and I think I spy a painting by my [love] @rusconistudios. Congratulations to you both,'" writes US Weekly.

In January 2018, he shared a black-and-white shot of himself kissing the curator, along with the caption, "Happy Anniversary you Dreamboat."
