On Good Morning America this morning it was announced that the new Bachelor would be Colton Underwood.
Fans are far from happy about Colton holding the title of Bachelor and they have been ruthlessly dragging the show. Listen, fans saw it coming from a mile away. Colton was going to predictably become the next white man who is seemingly perfect, but can’t for some strange reason, find the girl of his dreams. And to boot, he’s a virgin who is waiting for the right person.
The retired football player was introduced to the world on Becca Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette. The 26-year-old blonde Midwestern boy fell in love with Becca, but not without some drama along the way. He dated former Bachelor contestant Tia Booth before coming on the show. He slid into her DMs and then before you know it, was whisked away to film The Bachelorette.
Fans assumed Colton tried to hit Tia up before the season believing she was going to be the Bachelorette. This way he’d have a leg up on the competition and have a better chance of winning it all and Tia’s heart. But then Arie Luyendyk’s season ended the way it ended – I will seriously not rehash it – and Becca became the leading lady.
The Tia and Colton drama has been played on and off camera and it’s exhausting.
Colton got sent home and then ended up on the trash island floating in the ocean of the Bachelor franchise that is Bachelor in Paradise. Unluckily for us, Tia was also at Paradise. The couple was on again and off again so many times that it doesn’t really matter, fans have become numb to it all. They officially called it quits and now Colton is ready to get serious and date a few dozen girls at once.
Don’t worry Tia will not be on Colton’s season, but the chances of us hearing her name a thousand times an episode is high.
After two straight seasons of Colton, what’s a third?
Fans were hoping and praying that the franchise would choose Wills, Blake, Jason or Grocery Store Joe from Becca’s season. Let’s be real, Blake and Jason are the only viable candidates out of the fan favorites. Joe was voted out the first episode of Becca’s season and they would never dedicate a whole season to him and Wills is African-American, so he’s automatically not going to become the Bachelor.
Hardly anyone was vouching for Colton to become Bachelor, but here we are.
What do you think about Colton becoming Bachelor?
