'The Bachelor': Colton Underwood is looking for love again. "Third time’s the charm" he says
Fans are excited to see this former NFL player's journey to finding love after exploring possible futures with Becca Kufrin and Tia Booth.
The virgin NFL player Colton Underwood is getting another chance at love, thanks to ABC’s ‘The Bachelor.’ One of the most popular contestants of season 14 of ‘The Bachelorette,’ Colton was announced to be the next ‘Bachelor’ in the upcoming season 23 during Tuesday’s episode of 'Good Morning America.'
One of his bigger storylines on the reality show was that he used to date former 'Bachelor' contestant and then ‘Bachelorette’ Becca Kufrin’s friend, Tia Booth. In response to the criticism that he was still not over Tia during the time, he told PEOPLE in July, “I was completely focused on and invested in Becca. I didn’t have any feelings for Tia. We had moved on. I wouldn’t have gone on the show if I hadn’t.”
The duo, however, did end up rekindling their romance during the current season of ‘Bachelor in Paradise,’ but broke up on Tuesday’s episode. All in all, the fan favorite experienced quite the growth over the summer, finding closure with Becca and Tia. He had expressed his willingness to go all in to find the woman of his dreams while shooting in the beaches of Mexico.
Along with his openness and his honesty, it is also his charity that made him beloved among fans. He founded the Legacy Foundation, a charity for cystic fibrosis, in honor of his 6-year-old cousin Harper, who was diagnosed with the condition as a baby. He also has two rescue dogs and a whole lot of love to share with his potential partner.
Fans are looking forward to his journey.
