Fans are convinced Colton Underwood was talking about Aly Raisman to Becca in the 'Bachelorette'
The Bachelorette has had men who have opened up about their past relationships with Becca Kufrin but one could not miss what Colton Underwood had to say. Colton became one of the most talked about men in the show and it was all thanks to his ex, Aly Raisman who is a famous gymnast.
In the episode, we see, after Colton and Becca return from their dates, they sit together to talk about their past. Colton reveals that he has been in love only once. Fans grew curious if he was speaking about his relationship with Aly on his one on one date with Becca. Aly and Colton two started dating since the 2016 VMAs but it wasn't until December that they made it public.
Their love story was unlike any other as the two started talking to each other online and Colton decided to ask her to become his girlfriend during a video question and answer session, as reported by Romper. Ever since they made their relationship public, the two did not miss a chance of being spotted together. Unfortunately, Colton and Aly's relationship did not last. The pair broke up in August 2017.
In an interview with the Lincoln Journal Star, Colton came forward and explained the reason behind their split. One of the reasons for this had been distance. "We’re taking a break right now," he told the Star. "We’re still good friends and talk, but all that travel had been a nightmare." At the same time, he hinted that media had also played a part in their breakup. "It put a lot of pressure on us, sure, but we had fun with it. A lot of fun date nights," he said. "Those six months were great."
However, fans are convinced that in the latest episode of The Bachelorette, Colton might have revealed something more than he has said in his previous interviews. "I said 'I love you' in the beginning, very quick, and I didn't get it back," he said presumably about ex Aly. "And I've only been in love once, so it was hard for me because you don't feel like you're enough. Or you feel like you're missing something."
Even though there is no confirmation that he had been talking about Aly, most of the fans are presuming it is about her as he was in a relationship with her right after college and it fits well with the details he mentions to Becca. He continued to give more details about the breakup. "She broke up with me. I think that's sort of why, for me, being in love has confusion and pain associated with it. I don't want you to think just because I've only been in love once that it's in any way a bad thing," he said.
He continued, "For me, the word love, to me, means so much just because it's only happened once and I hold it so high that I don't just throw it out there. And I don't use even falling in love lightly and I want you to know that." Colton added that he did not seem to be on the same page with his ex unlike how Becca and he are. Fans were quick to comment on this with one writing "Gymnastics Twitter about to come for Colton after he threw Aly Raisman under the bus #TheBachelerotte," while another added, "Soooo are we all pretending Colton’s not talking about Aly Raisman? #TheBachelorette."
