'The Bachelor' season 23: Although he has his lows, Colton Underwood might not be the worst bachelor yet
In less than a month, Colton Underwood will be surrounded by around 30 ladies fighting for his love and attention on season 23 of 'The Bachelor'
'The Bachelor' season 23 is all set to begin on January 7, 2019. This season's bachelor is NFL player Colton Underwood. He made his first appearance on 'The Bachelorette' and 'The Bachelor in Paradise'. Now Underwood has made his way into 'The Bachelor'. Though he has made his appearance on other Bachelor series, there is one well-known fact that makes the 26-year-old Underwood stand out. And that is, he is still a virgin.
In less than a month, Underwood will be surrounded by around 30 ladies fighting for his love and attention. And when the news of Underwood being the next bachelor was revealed, there was a lot of hate going around claiming that he was the worst bachelor ever and that the series was just wasting their time by making him season 23's bachelor, while there are other better bachelors out there.

But if you compare Underwood to some of the previous season's bachelors, it will come to people's realization that Underwood might not be the worst bachelor in the series's history yet. Though his emotional character and his low relationship with 'The Bachelorette' alum Tia Booth is among the main reasons he has a lot of hate from the reality dating series viewers, there is a lot more to him that people are not seeing and missing out.
Underwood is a person who is very open and honest. Apart from that, he also has a very big heart and is quite a charitable guy. Underwood is also the founder of the Legacy Foundation. The foundation is a charity for cystic fibrosis and was created in honor of Harper, his six-year-old cousin. She was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis as an infant.
Underwood is also an animal lover, especially dogs. He also has two rescue dogs. Though his V-Card might be another reason for some to hate him, he does not like it to be his main focus.
Underwood might not be the worst bachelor yet, just because he is a virgin. Him still having his cherry un-popped at the age of 26 will just increase his viewer rating because everyone is waiting for the season to air so they can see if he will ever lose his virginity. Another reason that makes him likable is that he is ready to endure any amount of virginity jokes and that makes Underwood extra adorable. His emotional character will also help him connect better with the girls which will make this season a better watch.
With all this said and done, another proof that Underwood might not be the worst bachelor yet is because it is definitely going to be hard to beat season nine's bachelor Lorenzo Borghese.
Borghese is an Italian-American businessman and during his season, ABC took the series to Rome. The city is all about romance, and the season was supposed to be full of it. But it was boring and nothing like a fairytale everyone assumed it would be. Compared to all the other season bachelors, this was by far one among the worst.

This just assures viewers of season 23 that Underwood will be much better and will definitely kindle a lot of romance with the girls. By the end of the season, almost everyone would have changed their bad opinion on Underwood.
'The Bachelor' season 23 airs January 7, 2019, on ABC. Check your local listings for more information.
