We first got to know Colton Underwood on Becca Kufrin's season of "The Bachelorette." Colton fell in love with Becca, but it was revealed during the season that Colton had dated Becca's friend Tia prior to the filming of The "Bachelorette." Becca broke things off with Colton- she claimed that Tia has nothing to do with it- and a few weeks later chose Garrett as her Bachelor. Becca and Garrett are still together.
Colton went on Bachelor In Paradise, where he actually became part of a couple with Tia. But alas, the relationship did not last, and both went home (separately) in week five.
So now Colton is going to be "The Bachelor." ABC recently released this preview of Colton's season. So much drama, so many tears... and I'm so ready for January 7th!
