Well across the pond in the US there has been a very different reaction to this year’s Bachelor announcement.
US television network ABC yesterday revealed retired NFL player Colton Underwood as the season 23 rose distributor, and America has officially lost it.
Well, mainly because it’s his third time on the show.
Underwood first appeared on Season 14 of America’s The Bachelorette, where he famously opened up to Becca Kufrin about being a virgin.
The 26-year-old left the show in the final four and went on to appear on Season 5 of The Bachelor in Paradise, which is currently running in the US. He was eliminated on Monday night after a brief romance with contestant Tia Booth.
During his time on both Bachelor instalments he was very outspoken about the fact that he’s a virgin, and the fact that he’s never had sex, because – yes – he’s a virgin.
He told Good Morning America that he's "ready to settle down" after lucking out twice in the franchise and said he's "looking forward to being engaged and getting married shortly after that". We bet.
A source from US television network ABC said the 'Virgin Bachelor' who loves puppies was the "safest pick" because he "screams wholesome, middle America".
