‘No one wanted this’: Viewers slam Colton Underwood as the next ‘Bachelor’

She shared a picture of her with Colton, seemingly from the weekend they spent together before he did Becca Kufrin's Bachelorette season.

'I think it's to look for someone that fits into your life after the show.

Colton Underwood shared a photo on Instagram showing him with Tia Booth during their hot dog party on Bachelor in Paradise.

One of the big issues for Underwood, which endeared him to many fans, was his virginity and staying true to that part of himself. He added, "I want someone to spend the rest of my life with". The upcoming season of The Bachelor will kickoff sometime in early 2019.

On Tuesday's episode of Good Morning America, ABC announced that Underwood is the show's newest leading man.

Colton Underwood, a former National Football League player, awkwardly revealed to Becca Kufrin in the recently concluded season of The Bachelorette that he has never had sex before. He went on Bachelor in Paradise, where he had a bumpy journey that was mainly consumed by drama with Tia and their on-off relationship.

The 26-year-old was then eliminated from the show, clearly heartbroken by not being able to continue things with Becca.

The entire timeline of the relationship is still a bit murky, but by the time of their breakup on episode 8, Tia revealed that she had known Colton for six months. But I woke up one morning and realized that a future wasn't there.

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.
