'The Bachelor' Season 23 episode 9 review: Colton Underwood finally jumps fence and fans can't get over the moment
Fans were extremely excited for Monday's episode especially after the series revealed the long-awaited emotional fence jumping scene was to happen
When 'The Bachelor' season 23 aired its ninth episode Monday, fans and viewers were left in shock. Sticking to its claims of being the most dramatic season ever, we witnessed a genuine heartbreak moment for Colton Underwood. Before the episode could air, fans were extremely excited for Monday's episode especially after the series revealed the long-awaited emotional fence jumping scene was to happen. But what they didn't know is how dramatic it would be.
Picking up after the rose ceremony that ended last week, when the episode started, we saw Underwood pull Chris Harrison to a side and have a chat with him. He revealed he had taken a sex-education course and now knows what to expect in the fantasy suite and that he is prepared to finally lose his virginity.
Later, the remaining three women and Underwood headed to Portugal all excited. The first date in Portugal went to Tayshia Adams. Underwood invited her to the fantasy suite but nothing happened. The two revealed they had a good conversation. Underwood told Adams he isn't in love with her. Things began to unravel when Underwood began to talk to Cassie Randolph about his feelings for her, while Randolph received a surprise visit from her father.
Clear in her mind that she does not feel the same way, Randolph decided to break the news to him just before an invitation to the fantasy suite came up. The news of Randolph wanting to leave, came as a shock to Underwood who clearly was heartbroken. Even though he tried to make her stay, Randolph had made her decision.
After she left, Underwood ripped his mic off and walked away. Even though Harrison and the camera crew ran behind Underwood, he was not stopping this finally led to the emotional fence jump, that the show had been teasing since the inception of the season. Underwood ran, and in one fell swoop, leaped over the fence. By the time the producers were able to open the fence, Underwood was missing. This left fans and viewers in utter shock. Because they did not expect the scene to be so heartbreaking and real.
After watching Underwood make that jump, some fans consoled him on social media saying he should never beg a woman. "@colton You should never [have] had to beg a woman to be in love with you. It’s very clear [Cassie] had an alternative motive when she came on the show. Her goal was to be sweet and innocent to try and win #BachelorNation over but her true colors shined," wrote a fan.

While another added that any girl would love to hear what Underwood told Randolph and she missed her chance. "Do you know how many women in this world would kill to have a man say those things to them & to have remained a virgin ... Cassie, you are stupid. I can’t even!"
Meanwhile, some fans said this is karma, because Underwood let Caelynn Keyes go even though she truly loved him. "Last week he sent a girl home who loved him...he lead her [on] that he was falling in love with her ...karma. The chick that left tonight was smart to want the kind of love her parents have. She has a great Father who cares for her happiness," said a fan.
When the next episode airs, we will get to see the team catch up with Underwood and see what happens further. 'The Bachelor' season 23 airs every Monday on ABC. Check your local listings for more information.
