Colton Underwood has his hands full this season on The Bachelor 2019, especially when it comes to rumors surrounding two of the front-runner contestants – Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Cassie Randolph. Previously on the show, a contestant named Katie Morton told Underwood that she heard Randolph and Miller-Keyes talking about being the next star of The Bachelorette. For those unfamiliar, generally, one of the front-runners from The Bachelor ends up the star of the next season of The Bachelorette.
Cast member Tayshia Adams tells Underwood more about the rumors, saying that Randolph and Miller-Keyes supposedly aren’t ready to be engaged to Underwood at the end of his Bachelor journey. Over the course of the season, Underwood has admitted to the camera that this has been one of his fears – that he could pick someone who isn’t ready for the commitment. Adams also said that Miller-Keyes and Randolph had been chatting in excitement about the parties they’re going to go to and people they will meet once this journey has ended. Adams said she felt that Morton and other contestants who have warned Underwood, were talking specifically about Randolph and Miller-Keyes.
Now, before we get into some MAJOR SPOILERS, this is your SPOILER WARNING. Do NOT continue reading if you do NOT want to know whether or not one of these women gets engaged to Underwood on season 23 of The Bachelor.
So, now let’s get into the details on each woman …
Neither of them are engaged to Colton Underwood, but one of them is the reported winner, according to Reality Steve. Cassie Randolph is reported to be the winner, but she reportedly got cold feet and didn’t want to get engaged. Underwood was said to be head over heels for her and left the show to be with her despite her not wanting the full commitment. Reality Steve’s update on what happened was, “Colton came back to the states and ‘chased’ Cassie down, they filmed something in Southern California where he shows up and tells her they don’t need to be engaged and he wants to date her. She agrees and that’s where we are right now.” So, when it comes to not being ready for an engagement, perhaps the rumors were true?
Miller-Keyes is reportedly eliminated after the hometown dates.
Prior to filming The Bachelor this season, Underwood spoke to Entertainment Weeklyand said that one of his biggest hesitations about being the star of The Bachelor was that it might not work out in the end. Underwood revealed, “This is an environment that is built for the success of a relationship, and if I get to the end of this and I’m in love and I get down on one knee and it doesn’t get reciprocated, that’s gonna be hard. That’d be the hardest thing. That’s my greatest fear in all of this.” Clearly, Underwood didn’t let this fear get in his way when he decided to go with Randolph.
Contestant Kirpa Sudick told Tayshia Adams that she did the right thing when she revealed information about Randolph and Miller-Keyes to Underwood. Sudick also opened up to Underwood on this issue.
