"How many guys have you done things with?" the anonymous person asked.

"Let me vent for a second," Underwood started. "Questions like this are inappropriate. I understand you might know me from 'The Bachelor', where I shared a lot about my personal life. I have set boundaries, and I'm respecting myself in a way that will lead me to a healthier life."

He added: "I never asked to be labeled as the virgin bachelor and have people feel the security to ask me questions about my sex life. It just happened, and during that time, I thought I had no other choice but to just go with it, or the network would be mad. I know differently now."
