‘Bachelor In Paradise’: Sydney Lotuaco Thinks Colton Underwood’s Kissing Lacked Passion Because He Was A Virgin

Colton Underwood got mercilessly called out for being a bad kisser on an episode of Bachelor In Paradise this season.

A group of contestants were sitting around the fire when they started discussing their worst kisses.

After Kristina Schulman described an anonymous bad kisser, Sydney Lotuaco jumped in to bring up a member of Bachelor Nation everyone knew: Colton Underwood.

When Tayshia Adams entered the conversation the group asked if she agreed with Lotuaco.

“This is awkward. I was not gonna lie,” she replied before confirming that she agreed with the rest of the group.

“But he got better toward the end of the season,” she added, saying that she taught him as best she could.

Why Sydney Lotuaco thinks her kisses with Colton Underwood lacked passion

Lotuaco was recently interviewed on Ben Higgins and Ashley Iaconetti’s podcast, Almost Famous, where she surmised that perhaps Underwood’s Bachelor kisses weren’t passionate because he lacked sexual experience.

“Not to, like, kiss and tell but to, like, kiss and tell. I just think Colton, one, he was a virgin, which is, like, we were all fine with that,” she said. “I just don’t think there was a lot of passion behind the kisses he was giving us.”

But the former NBA dancer agreed that it could also be possible that her kisses with Underwood lacked passion because he didn’t see a long-term future with her.

“I mean, he didn’t like us, so that could’ve been why those kisses weren’t that passionate,” she said. “They weren’t messy. They were clean cut, not really passionate kisses. So that could’ve been a lot of really different elements.” 

Lotuaco will say that Underwood consistently had good breath, though.

“I will say that Colton has very good breath,” she said. “There’s a lot of things that go into it. I think, ultimately, Colton and I just weren’t a match, and it came across in our kisses. Not to harp on him anymore. It wasn’t for me. It’s fine.”

Demi Burnett also came to Underwood’s defense.

“I thought coco was a good kisser,” she wrote on Twitter in response to another tweet about Underwood’s kissing abilities.

“Same. Still do and I guess that’s all that matters,” Randolph replied to Burnett’s tweet.
