‘The Bachelor’: When Will Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph Get Married?
Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph broke tradition when they chose to continue dating without an engagement after The Bachelor. Of course, given the nature of the ABC reality series, fans are always anticipating the next big step for the couple — whether that means a breakup or marriage. So when will The Bachelor‘s Underwood and Randolph get married? Here’s what we know so far so fans can stop pressuring the pair on Instagram.
Are Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph still together after ‘The Bachelor’?
As Bachelor Nation drew near Christmas 2019, everyone grew increasingly suspicious of Randolph and Underwood’s relationship status. On Dec. 11, Underwood posted a holiday photo featuring his two dogs. But, as the portrait didn’t include Randolph, fans wondered whether Underwood and Randolph are still together.
Meanwhile, during an Instagram Stories Q&A, the former bachelor revealed he wasn’t spending Christmas with Randolph.
“We are both going home for the holidays,” Underwood wrote, per SheKnows. “I’ll be in Denver. She will be in NoCal.”
Nevertheless, it seems both Underwood and Randolph are still together, as they’ve continuously shown support for one another on Instagram, even though they’re separated by distance for the holiday.
On Dec. 19, Underwood posted a fun video of Randolph in a Christmas onesie, lip-syncing to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” Then on Dec. 25, Randolph playfully shared a clip of Underwood — dressed as Buddy the Elf — to wish her followers a Merry Christmas.
“I hope this finds you and blesses your feed today,” Randolph wrote.

Following The Bachelor finale in March 2019, Underwood admitted he and Randolph experienced “a lot of pressure” to rush into an engagement for the sake of the franchise, according to People. However, Underwood and Randolph stuck to their beliefs, choosing to go at their own pace. And while Underwood hasn’t proposed, he still plans to in the future.
“She doesn’t have a ring on her finger yet. But she will, one day,” Underwood said in August.
Then in September, Randolph gave US Weekly an update on her relationship with Underwood.
“Me and him are 100 percent on the same page,” she said. “So, when you hear things out there, when people are saying, ‘They’re not on the same page.’ I’m like, ‘You’re not in this relationship!’ We actually are. We’re really good. We’re in a good spot.”
It also appears Underwood and Randolph are still taking things slow towards the back half of the year. And during an interview with Hollywood Life in November, Underwood explained why he hasn’t moved in with Randolph.
“We travel so much, so we’re always around each other and together,” Underwood said. “It’s good, right now, for our relationship, to not be there yet, you know? We’re taking things step by step. We’ll get there, though. We’re taking out time to make it all work out and be right for both of us.”

On Dec. 20, a fan asked the former bachelor when he will propose to Randolph. And Underwood made it clear his engagement to Randolph will be on his own terms — away from the pressures from the ABC reality series.
“After I buy a ring,” Underwood said, per People. “I never actually got a ring. But when the time is right, I’ll buy a nice ring with no strings on it.”
