Relationships

Aly Raisman

Colton dated the gymnast, Aly Raisman in 2016. They began seeing each other after they met in Los Angeles. They were set up to meet each other by their mutual friends, Andrew East, and Shawn Johnson set.

Their relationship came to an end because of their tight training schedule and traveling for competitions and things like these.  However, It seems they are on good terms and still talk often. The couple broke up in 2017.

Raisman has had much better luck in her career than Underwood. At the 2016 Olympics in Brazil, she won one gold medal in the team event, and two won silver medals in the individual all-around and for floor exercise.

 

The Bachelorette

Colton was a participant on the 14th season of The Bachelorette. The Bachelorette is an American reality TV show that aires on ABC. The show is actually a spin-off of The Bachelor. The 14th season featured Becca Kufrin, a 28-year-old publicist from Minnesota.

In January 2018, before being picked for The Bachelorette, Colton had a short relationship with the 22nd season of The Bachelor participant, Tia Booth. Kufrin was informed of the tie early in the season, but after Colton got a hometown date, Tia Booth came back, telling Kufrin that she still has feelings. After that Colton was eliminated.

A funny thing is that during the visit to Underwood’s hometown, he told Becca that she was the first girl in his life that he has brought home. This was later proven to be a big lie. Fans found some old pictures of Colton’s ex-girlfriend, Aly Raisman, at his residence with his parents. All of these happened at the 7th week of the show.

Rest of The Show

At 7th week, Underwood reveals to Kufrin that he is a virgin. Kufrin leaves the dinner briefly to gather her thoughts and come to a decision. In the end, Underwood receives the rose.

After Underwood revealed his virginity, Wendy Williams said on her show that: “I don’t trust people that have never had a smoke, a drink, and I don’t trust people that have never had sex.”

She got criticism from some fans, saying her comment was humiliating and virgin-shaming, which was not ok definitely. Colton didn’t stay silent. He responded on Twitter by saying “Don’t trust a virgin, but you’ll trust your 3 baby daddies who cheat on you every weekend.” of course this comment received some criticism too. Fans of the show believed that Colton’s tweet had some racist and slut-shaming suggestions.

He has spoken openly about having held his virginity, and how appearing on The Bachelorette encouraged him to discuss it.

The Bachelor & Cassie Randolph

On September 2018, ABC network stated that Colton Underwood would the bachelor in the 23rd season of the show (The Bachelor). The decision got mixed reactions. Some fans said they would have fancied Blake Horstmann or Jason Tartick.

For those of you who don’t know how The Bachelor works, the show spins around a single bachelor. He starts dating and spending time with twenty-something of girls to finally select a wife among them.

Cassie Randolph was a competitor in Colton’s The bachelor. During the show’s premiere, Chris Harrison, host of the show, said she is sweet and low key, there’s a chance she could get “lost in the fray” on the show.

Since the beginning, Colton seemed to be very fond of Cassie. They had an exclusive date on an exotic island in Thailand and spent an entire day together alone, in the middle of the ocean.

Rest of His Story

On week 9, Underwood and his Top 3 picks were in Portugal. He was going to lose his virginity. Before his date with Cassie, he said:

“I feel my whole life has been leading to tonight because I love Cassie. I want to be with Cassie. My heart is complete when I hang out with Cassie,” he said with certainty going to the date.

Before the date, Cassie had started to have doubts about marriage. Even her father flew out to Portugal.

Cassie decided to leave the show, and when she revealed the news to Underwood, he was utterly heartbroken. “I don’t care if you’re about to leave, I’m not going to stop fighting for you,” Underwood said to Cassie.

After that, Colton ripped off his mice and jumped a fence to avoid the camera crew.

After that, Colton ends things with Hannah G. and Tayshia (other two of top three picks) to try and win Cassie back. He went back to her hometown of Huntington Beach, California.

Reports suggest that Underwood told Randolph he just wants to date her and they don’t need to get engaged. The couple didn’t end up engaged at the end of the show, but they’re still happily together.
