The Bachelor's Colton Underwood under fire for forcing Cassie Randolph to go on date when she was throwing up
The former bachelor revealed this piece of information in his recently published memoir and said he found it cute that Cassie had puke all over her
Colton Underwood came under fire from fans after he revealed that he chose to go on a dinner date with Cassie Randolph despite her being sick with the stomach flu while on 'The Bachelor' Season 23.
The former bachelor recently published his memoir titled "The First Time: Finding Myself and Looking for Love on Reality TV". The book that was published on March 31, 2020, addresses a number of topics that include his time at 'The Bachelor', his complicated feelings toward the franchise, his sexuality, his mental health and much more.
Fans were quick to get their hands on his book. It didn't take them long before they were almost done with the book, especially now with all the time at hand, thanks to the lockdown. One fan who was almost done with 3/4 of the book, took to Reddit and highlighted one particular portion where Colton spoke about his dinner date with Cassie in Thailand.
Taking to Reddit, the fans revealed though they enjoyed his book so far but there was one part that bothered the most. It happened to be about Colton and Cassie's one-on-one dinner date in Thailand during their time on 'The Bachelor'.
In the book, Colton had mentioned about how the producers revealed they might have to cancel the date because Cassie was sick and vomiting. To which, Colton replied (a direct quote from the book), "F**k it. Please let her know that I’m sorry she’s sick but I’m still kissing her."
He then continued to talk about how they went through with the dinner. He revealed that Cassie was sick, shivering and had to keep running out to throw up. He added that Cassie had vomit on her dress, in her hair, and how he thought it was 'cute'.
In the thread, the fan mentioned, "He says that she had been looking forward to their time together and didn’t want to give it up, which I can understand. However, to me it seems cruel to make her sit through that dinner and watch her shiver and repeatedly run to vomit (while never going to help her or hold her hair or rub her back, mind) and to describe the vomit in her hair and on her clothes and think it’s cute. I just feel like he should’ve been a considerate human and canceled the dinner despite her disappointment."
It didn't take long for fans on Reddit to read the thread and share their thoughts on Colton's reveal. Disgusted with his behavior, fans affirmed he did not respect the fact that Cassie was sick. Some fans also called him gross, claiming they couldn't expect anything more from Colton, comparing to the time he called period underwear gross.
"If this really happened Colton is gross. Poor Cassie. If this happened to me I'd peace out even sooner," a fan shared. Another fan wrote, "That is bizarre. If the girl is sick don’t make her get dressed up. Go visit her or see if you can reschedule dinner (I realize the latter may not be possible due to the schedule)."
"Colton was clearly not respecting that she was feeling ill. It was definitely bad on his part and he should have waited until she felt better to go through with the date," a fan said. While another added, "You could tell something was off during their dinner and talk portion of the date. I'm sure watching it back now, with this knowledge, it would explain why it felt off. Editors probably pieced together a string of scenes between her getting sick, to create the 'talk'."
"That's kind of scary tbh. Poor Cassie it must have been awful to be that sick so far from home and everything being recorded on camera," a fan shared. Adding to that another said, "Tbh I don't expect much more from Colton 'Period underwears are gross' Underwood."
"I think that shows his lack of relationship experience and experience with women in general. I would hope he's changed a lot of those views after being with Cassie and living with her for over a year," a fan wrote. Another added, "Yep, me too. I have been neutral on him, usually think everyone is being a tad too harsh about him... but this is gross and seems mean. Poor Cassie!"
"Poor girl, that’s disgusting," a fan wrote.
