Former ‘Bachelor’ Colton Underwood has a Secret Show in the Works
Colton Underwood is no stranger to TV. He first appeared in The Bachelor franchise as a contestant on Becca Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette. He was portrayed as: Handsome Virgin, and he rode that wave right into Bachelor In Paradise the following summer.
On BIP, Underwood struck up a romance with Tia Booth, who made it clear during Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette, that she was into him. But try as he might, Underwood just couldn’t “get there” with Booth, so the two parted ways before the season ended.
Then, Underwood starred in his biggest role yet: The Bachelor. Still, he was marketed as the good-guy virgin with a back full of muscles. To say he had a dramatic season would be an understatement.
Underwood had his sights set on contestant Cassie Randolph from early on in his season. But just before they entered the fantasy suite together, Randolph told Underwood that she was going home. She told him that she loved him but that she wasn’t in love with him.
And so, the famous fence-jump was born. Underwood hopped an eight-foot fence to escape into the night in an effort to clear his head after the woman he wanted to end up with dumped him.
Eventually, he returned to try and win her back.
Today, Randolph and Underwood are, seemingly, very happy together.
Colton Underwood’s mysterious new show
After such a dramatic time on The Bachelorette, Bachelor In Paradise, and The Bachelor, it’s a bit of a surprise that Underwood would want to return to TV so soon. But according to Cosmopolitan, such is the case.
“I really want my own show,” he told the publication before revealing what very little he could give away about his latest venture.
Apparently, he’s been building up to this new project for quite some time. And he hints that he’s going to have some sort of host role this time around.
“Even before I went on The Bachelor, I’ve been going into hosting and broadcasting,” he said.
Underwood also says he’s going to be on the production side of things for this project. He says when he was on The Bachelor, he was super interested in production, saying he, “probably more than anyone, asked a lot of questions. But I loved finding and seeing how it worked.”
He also told the publication that the show is not going to be a reality show.
When will this mystery show premier? Underwood says sometime in 2020.
