Colton Underwood has had a tumultuous journey searching for love on and off of The Bachelor, but it seems like he might finally be on the right path with his new boyfriend Jordan C. Brown. Initially, Colton was searching for a woman’s hand in marriage as he starred on several seasons within The Bachelor franchise, but now he is finally living his truth. From his career in politics and entertainment to his relationship with the openly gay Bachelor star, here’s everything to know about the newest candidate for Colton’s last rose, Jordan.
Jordan was born on December 3, 1982. This means that Jordan is 38 years old and he has a Sagittarius Sun sign. Jordan’s birthday means that there is a nine-year age gap between the new Bachelor couple, as Colton is 29 years old. Jordan is based in Los Angeles, California. According to his LinkedIn account, Jordan has been living in California for some time. In 2000, Jordan attended Stanford University, where he studied English and Political Science. Jordan graduated from Stanford in 2004 with a Bachelor of Arts degree and immediately jumpstarted his career in politics. In June 2004, Jordan moved to Portland, Oregon, where he worked as a Field Organizer for John Kerry’s Presidential campaign. Although John Kerry lost in the 2004 Presidential election, that was only the beginning of Jordan’s career.
Jordan has an impressive resumé working with key figures in American politics. For instance, Jordan was a political advisor on President Barack Obama’s 2008 and 2012 Presidential campaigns. He also worked with Hillary Clinton during her 2016 run for President. Jordan has continued to work with prominent figures in the Democratic party and regularly attends the Democratic National Convention. Although he has accomplished amazing feats in the world of politics, Jordan’s career spans beyond elections. Jordan has worked with charitable organizations over the years including the Cancer Schmancer Movement, Summer Series, and XPRIZE Foundation. In 2016, Jordan worked as the Vice President of Social Impact at SB Projects, an entertainment and media company founded by Taylor Swift’s adversary Scooter Braun. In January 2020, Jordan founded his own political strategy agency, One Blue Hill. Jordan writes that the purpose of One Blue Hill is to “achieve innovative advocacy and philanthropy goals.”
In addition to working hard, Jordan’s social media indicates that he’s no stranger to having a good time. Jordan’s Instagram account, @jordancbrown_, has accumulated 5,111 followers with whom Jordan has shared over 1,100 posts. Jordan’s Instagram feed demonstrates that he has plenty of famous friends including Olivia Wilde, Justin Bieber, and former Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg. Jordan’s Instagram also reveals that the political advisor and entrepreneur is a musician as well. Jordan is featured on Ben Harper and Soweto Gospel Choir’s cover of Coldplay’s “Fix You”. And, of course, Jordan made room for the beloved Bachelor star Colton in his hectic life. According to E!, Jordan got cozy with his new boyfriend Colton on their “beachy trip in Maui at the Four Seasons Hotel.” Even though their friendship can be traced back to June, it’s unclear when Jordan’s friendship with Colton moved to the next level.
Colton is a prominent reality star that needs an accomplished and ambitious significant other to keep up with his high-profile life. From his work in politics to his A-list set of besties, Jordan is more than qualified to stand beside Colton. Although Colton wasn’t able to find his lifelong partner on The Bachelor, hopefully, his relationship with Jordan can make up for his disappointing TV experience.
