The Bachelor Season 23 - Check Out Who Is The New Suitor

Hollywood Life spoke with Colton just a few weeks before he was named the new Bachelor, and he seemed to be ready for the love challenge.

"I'm very excited", Underwood told Strahan. That season was the most shocking one so far.

Or they just wanted anyone but Colton.

When Colton appeared on Becca Kufrin's season of The Bachelorette, he revealed early on that he was a virgin and claimed he never brought a girl home to meet his parents. After getting eliminated in fourth place, he went on to participate in Season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise and struck up a relationship with former Bachelor contestant Tia Booth, whom he had briefly dated in the weeks before meeting Kufrin.

But fans were quick to take to social media to refute this claim, as the 26-year-old dated USA gymnast Aly Raisman between 2016 and 2017 and pictures of the pair with Colton's family appeared online. Just as Tia had become pretty confident in how well things were going in her renewed relationship with Colton, he decided that he'd felt forced into it and couldn't move forward.

The north London side finished in sixth place in the Premier League table and without a trophy under Arsene Wenger last season. But they managed to get two against Arsenal's defence, which has been terrible all four games so far this season.

Tia will not be a contestant, and this means that all the willing ladies will still have a chance with Colton. And it was a good thing to happen because now I can take what I learned in that relationship and apply it to future relationships.

Underwood, 26, dated Needham native and Olympic gold medal gymnast Aly Raisman during parts of 2016 and 2017 before joining the cast of the most recent season of ABC's "The Bachelorette".

When he came clean to Tia about his feelings, they had a very emotional break up, with both deciding to leave Paradise in the aftermath.

Fans of the hit ABC franchise have seen more tears than smiles from the former football player, though.
