‘The Bachelor’s Colton Underwood Comforts Cassie Randolph After She Was Stung By a Stingray
It’s safe to say The Bachelor‘s Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph will be spending more time indoors. Amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the couple has been practicing social distancing. But when Underwood and Randolph took a quick dip in the ocean, the graduate student was stung by a stingray, which resulted in an unexpected trip to the ER. The Bachelor Nation alums recently shared videos on their respective Instagram accounts to fully explain the situation. And although it was clear Randolph was in pain, Underwood tried his best to keep his girlfriend’s mind off the injury.
Colton Underwood explains what happened to Cassie Randolph
On March 16, Underwood shared a video of Randolph on Instagram. In the clip, the 24-year-old was crying out in pain as Underwood and the Randolph family played a game of UNO. Then in the caption, the former NFL player explained why Randolph was in such distress.
“While we were in isolation yesterday we decided to take a quick trip to the ocean and swim,” Underwood wrote. “It was cut short after a sting ray stung @cassierandolph in the foot. Mother Nature sent us a warning shot to get back inside.”
He continued: “I tried to take her mind off of it by playing UNO (It did not work). Thank you all for your prayers and concerns… after about 5 hours of pain and a weird reaction to the venom.”
Underwood also updated fans on Randolph’s status, and it seems she is going to be fine. “Cass is doing much better,” Underwood wrote. “Stay safe y’all!”

Meanwhile, Randolph addressed the situation on her own Instagram account, delving deeper into the story than Underwood. According to the post, she has been under self-isolation for two days and decided to “play in the waves” on a near-empty beach. Randolph was stung by a stingray, which she described as “SO PAINFUL.”
The Bachelor alum said she knew what to do because her has been stung a few times. However, she had an allergic reaction to the stingray venom. “I spent 5 hours in excruciating pain,” Randolph wrote.
She also added another video of Underwood trying to distract her from the pain after two hours. But in the end, Randolph “ended up in the ER after getting hives and my entire leg was swelling.”
Now Randolph said she is doing fine. “Got medication and my swelling is slowly subsiding,” Randolph wrote. “The most ironic part of all this: the hospital floor had STINGRAY artwork everywhere.”
She continued: “Oh, and to the lifeguard that was announcing (exact words) ‘surfers and swimmers, there are many stingrays out there, you WILL get stung, you WILL be in pain, and your day WILL be ruined’…I will heed your warning next time.”
Randolph signed off the Instagram post by thanking her family and Underwood for taking care of her. She also referenced the 28-year-old’s commentary during their UNO game.
“If there’s an option — I’ve seen it before — people suck out snake venom. I could suck out the stingray venom. Ready? Let’s try it,” Underwood said, obviously joking.
Then in the post, Randolph wrote, “P.s.s. @coltonunderwood thanks for offering to suck the venom out of my foot even though I wanted to kill you in that moment.”
