Cassie Randolph and Colton Underwood celebrate their one-year anniversary

Randolph and Underwood don’t count the show’s finale as their anniversary, though. They say their anniversary is November 14 because on that day last year Randolph and Underwood got the chance to cook a meal together, without any cameras, while they were still filming The Bachelor in Spain.

“One year ago today they put the cameras down and we cooked our first meal together in Mallorca, Spain. I knew then that loving you was going to be easy, but I couldn’t have imagined this,” Underwood wrote in his Instagram caption dedicated to Randolph for their anniversary.

Bachelor Nation was anxiously awaiting romantic photos and videos of the lovebirds’ vacation because Underwood had been teasing a “surprise” for Randolph leading up to their trip. While the couple posted plenty of Cassie/Colton content, there appeared to be someone else involved in their romantic getaway: Randolph’s sister, Michelle.

When Cassie posted photos from her trip on Instagram, fans would ask the reality star why Michelle was there.

Cassie Randolph explains why Michelle went on her anniversary trip with Colton Underwood

Recently, Cassie did an Instagram Q&A on her stories and a fan, once again, asked the question: “Why did your sister go on your 1 year anniversary with Colton trip [?]”

“Ok, I can see how this might have seemed a little strange, but it was actually the sweetest thing. Over the past year, Colton and I have travelled a lot together. Even though my sister and I share an apartment, we don’t get to hangout a ton because of our schedules. And when we do, it’s often very quick. [Michelle] had been in Europe for a month and [Colton] knew how much I missed her. It just so happened that he was able to surprise me with bringing her along on our next trip (which also just so happened to be over our year)!” Randolph explained.

She continued: “We all love hanging out and had a blast together :) Def wish [Gregg Sulkin] could have joined, but that didn’t work out! One of the things I love about Colton is he is super easygoing and has a “the more the merrier” attitude which makes things a lot of fun.”

It’s clear that Underwood always has Cassie’s best interest at heart. He knew she was missing Michelle so he invited her along. It’s as simple as that.
