'The Bachelor' season 23: Fans have had it with Colton Underwood, want the show's makers to rethink their decision
After first making an appearance on 'The Bachelorette' and 'The Bachelor in Paradise' Colton Underwood has made his way into 'The Bachelor' and viewers are not liking it.
'The Bachelor' season 23 is all set to begin on January 7, 2019. While there are viewers and fans who are waiting to see who this season's bachelor Colton Underwood will finally end up with, there is hate going around amongst the reality dating series viewers as well.
After first making an appearance on 'The Bachelorette' and 'The Bachelor in Paradise' Underwood has made his way into 'The Bachelor' and viewers are not liking it. They claim that the series is just wasting their time by making him this season's bachelor, while there are so many other better bachelors out there. One of the main reasons for this division between fans is due to the NFL player's high and low relationship with 'The Bachelorette' alum Tia Booth. The duo also appeared on 'The Bachelor in Paradise' and was seen leaving the paradise separately during the fifth week.
Claiming that he used Booth and broke her heart, fans are not ready to watch this season just because Underwood is in it. "Huge Mistake! They put him on BIP just to break Tia’s heart when HE KNEW he was the next Bachelor,This franchise has become a joke! Not the Trista and Ryan Show! Get All New people,keep it real,back to Reality!" wrote one fan. While another fan added. "I just don’t hate myself enough to watch this season. I dislike your lead if I see him for more than 5 minutes."
Not watching. It was quite pathetic how producers groomed him to be the bachelor after he dated someone on the show off camera, then dated someone else on a different season, then goes on Paradise to date previous girl to look better to viewers.

With barely a month left for the series to premiere, the fans comments don't seem to be doing too well on 'The Bachelor's' social media page. Fans just cannot digest the fact that the lead is Underwood. "I reallly hope your ratings plummet and you learn your lesson and find an actual good lead for either the bachelor or bachelorette. Have not seen a good lead since @kaitlynbristowe ! I vote @VanessaGrimaldi or @tiarachel91 #noonelikescolton," said one fan. "I hope y'all know this will be the season with the lowest ratings cause y'all been screwing us over for too long now. #StillNotOverIt," said another fan. If fans and viewers continue to project such hate towards this season, the series might have the lowest ratings that they have never had before.
For this year's Bachelor drinking game you take a shot whenever Colton cries or anytime the word "virgin" is said. #alcoholpoisoninginthefirsttenminutes— Brandon Tietz (@brandontietz) December 11, 2018
Noting that Underwood has had a meltdown in pressurizing situations in previous seasons, fans are also not a big fan of that. They claim that he still does not know what he wants. "Are we going to have a cry fest from this boy..he doesn’t know what he wants especially under pressure," wrote a fan. Adding to that another fan commented, "He doesn't know who he is. He won't until mid/late 30's. I think we can all predict this one."
My @BachelorABC viewing group of 25 friends disbanded bcuz there was no interest when Arie was named the Bachelor. And there’s still no interest w/Colton😕. Everyone was so excited when we all thought it was going to be Jason, but again there’s no interest so no viewing parties.— AllieB (@NJgirl108) December 15, 2018
