Colton Underwood made big headlines during his time as The Bachelor for being a virgin. He has now been with Cassie Randolph for over a year and is revealing if that is still the case. Colton has a new book coming out at the end of March giving all the details about his life and journey to find love. Be sure to check that out, but in the meantime, let’s find out more about what is or isn’t going on with Cassie.
Colton addresses if he is still a virgin
People addressed the question and here’s Colton’s answer. First of all, Colton is very ready for people to move on and not worry about his virginity. Who can blame him? And, he’s not the first Bachelor star who has had virginity follow them around. Ashley Iaconetti also got tons of attention for her abstinence choices.
So is Colton a virgin? He says, “If you have a sex life, you typically never talk about it. People can take that however they want to at this point. But I’m respecting my values, and also the values of Cassie, my family and her family. We’re happy together. And people can assume whatever they want.”
Colton went on to say, “I don’t want to be known as the virgin for the rest of my life. There is so much more to me. And I let my story be controlled for too long. Now, I’m all about taking ownership.”
His time on The Bachelor
Colton started his time with The Bachelor franchise during Becca Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette. This was when fans first learned about Colton’s virginity. He then went on Bachelor in Paradise before being named the lead Bachelor.
Colton says, “My virginity became my identity on the show. I dealt with it, and I laughed at [the jokes], but I’m a lot more sensitive than people think. I could laugh things off, but it was also like, ‘Let’s keep this about finding love and not about getting me laid.’”
He goes on to say, “It was a constant battle of ‘I signed up for a TV show, and I’ll put on a TV show,’ but it was also starting to wear on me.” He revealed that sleeping in the same bedroom as contestant Tayshia Adams made him feel dirty. Colton said, “And I got to a point where I was like, ‘I can’t do this.’”
Of course everyone knows how his story ended on the show. He chased after Cassie Randolph and the two are still together, happy and in love. Colton said, “Everything happens for a reason. Cassie and I are happy and that’s all that matters.”
