Colton Underwood decided to stay with Cassie Randolph at the end of his season of The Bachelor, despite her breaking up with him at the end of the season and her not wanting to get engaged. During the show, he had a rough time getting Cassie’s family to accept him. However, it looks as though that may be changing now.
‘The Bachelor’ Alumni Bonds with Family
According to People, Colton Underwood has been hanging out with Cassie’s family now that The Bachelor is over. More than anybody, he got to bond with Cassie’s dad. This is very good since on TV all fans got to see was Cassie’s dad shutting Colton down when he said he wanted to be with Cassie.
Cassie’s dad originally made it pretty clear that he wasn’t too sure about Colton.
“I could tell Colton was being affectionate with Cassie. I don’t know if that’s what he does with all the girls he goes out with. We don’t know him. He seemed like a … guy,” he said on an episode of The Bachelor.
Colton didn’t let that get to him too much as he still chose Cassie as the one he wants to spend all of his time with.
“Looking back, I understand where he was coming from,” Colton told People about Cassie’ father. “It’s like, ‘I’ve only met you for 30 minutes and had a conversation, you seem like a great guy, but I love my daughter and I know who my daughter is.’ Of course, I wanted to hear a yes, but the fact that he stood true to himself showed me all I needed to know about him as a man. I have a lot of respect for him,” he said.
Both Cassie and Colton joked that this was the hometown that everyone didn’t get to see. They both posted the experience on Instagram and the family looks pretty happy together.
Colton Relates to Cassie’s Dad
