Colton Underwood Dumps the Final 2
Normally, when a front-runner quits the show near the finish line, the star of the show is broken-hearted but moves on with the remaining contestant or contestants. Not in this case. According to Reality Steve, Underwood breaks up with the final two women. And, while Tayshia Adams already had a great overnight date with Underwood, Hannah Godwin didn’t even get hers yet.
Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph Get Back Together
Reality Steve reported that after Underwood broke it off with the other two women, he was determined to win Randolph back. He reportedly went back to the United States, “chased” her down, and told her that he wanted to be with her. Underwood said he didn’t need to be engaged and that he just wanted to date Randolph. Reality Steve reported that the two are currently dating and still together.
Former Bachelor and Bachelorette Cast Members Appear
In a press release by ABC, it is reported that several former contestants and cast members from past seasons of The Bachelor and Bachelorette will appear tonight. ABC wrote, “Colton appears live on night one, explaining how he was handling this heartbreaking challenge. Past Bachelor favorites Blake Horstmann, Jason Tartick, Ben Higgins and Garrett Yrigoyen, all good friends of Colton, will appear live to discuss the situation and how they think it will end for him.”
Recently, Ben Higgins spoke out against Cassie Randolph, the winner, for the way she rejected Underwood on the show. Higgins told Entertainment Tonight that, “I think she should have did something different with Colton. It’s very clear that she was not into him.” He continued, “As much as she maybe felt the pressure to still be there and just still try to make this work — you know, you have a lot of people counting on you and watching — I think all she wanted to tell him was, ‘You’re a great guy, you’ve proven to be a great guy, but I’m just not that into you and as a result, I need to leave.’ But instead, it felt like she was kind of dancing around the subject, going, ‘This is too fast, this isn’t right for me, I just don’t know.’ She knew.”
