Prior to the episode's airing, the LGBTQ+ ally opened up about his struggles while navigating love, admitting that he has been single for quite some time.

"We all want to find love…🙈," he began the Instagram message on Monday, December 20. "For the past 5 years, I have been single. I've had some incredible experiences but have never been 100% sure that anyone was the one. Maybe that's me expecting an impossible love story, or perhaps it's just me knowing that patience will lead me to 'my person.'"

"Through my dating trials and tribulations, I've learned a lot, and two things keep me hopeful," he continued. "1. I know I want to connect with someone emotionally, physically, spiritually, and in the right situation (timing is everything.) 2. That I must remain open-minded to love and never close the door on someone I see a potential connection with because of fear of what others might think."

In Tuesday's episode, Jennings — who has been a longtime supporter of his younger sister's transition process — candidly expressed in a conversation with his friend Peppermint that he was hesitant to open up about his first dating experience with a transgender woman due to fears of what others would think.

However, he insisted on Monday that he will continue to live his truth and block out the haters when it comes to his dating journey.

"I will date whomever I want, always be honest about my feelings," he concluded in his message."If there’s a potential spark, I will see where it goes with any woman."
