The Bachelorette: Aly Raisman's Ex-Boyfriend Is Competing, and He's Already Stealing Hearts
The Bachelorette just started, but fans are already picking favourites. You know, the ones with the most interesting job titles, the cutest dimples (I'm lookin' at you, Joe, the grocery store owner), and even ones that surprisingly have famous ex-girlfriends. The moment Colton Underwood stepped out of the limo and into Becca Kufrin's arms, he left us scratching our heads trying to figure out why he looks so familiar . . . and it's not because we saw him in our dreams. It turns out the 26-year-old football player used to date Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman.
After being set up on a double date by fellow gymnast Shawn Johnson and her hubby, who was Colton's teammate at the time, Aly and Colton hit it off, making their romance red carpet official in December 2016. The two were by each others' sides for many events, and he was even her date at the 2017 Golden Globes. But People reports they broke up cordially in June 2017 due to their busy work schedules.
Now, Colton is ready to find love again, and he even secured a rose from Becca during the first episode. In a preview for this season, he tells Becca that he is a virgin and is not waiting for marriage, but waiting for the right person. Read on to see how Twitter reacted to Colton, and if it turns out he's not engaged to Becca at the end of this season, well . . . I'm single and more than willing to accept his rose.
