Cassie Randolph Revealed Why She Really Did ‘The Bachelor’ Interview
Cassie Randolph has been getting a lot of flack since she and Colton Underwood called it quits, especially after her interview on The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons — Ever! After meeting on Underwood’s season of The Bachelor, the pair opted to give a relationship a try. Though they didn’t leave the show engaged, Underwood was able to convince Randolph to take him back after she quit the show. The two dated for 1.5 years until they announced, via Instagram, that they had called it quits in late May 2020.
The pair seemed to have a mutually respectful breakup in the eyes of the public. Both said kind things about each other and announced that they would be moving forward as friends. But, things seem to have changed in recent days. On Monday, July 6, 2020, Randolph’s interview on The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons — Ever! aired and many people took offense. Though Randolph stated that she wasn’t comfortable discussing any aspect of her relationship with Underwood, she still received tons of hate for going on the show.
Cassie Randolph claps back at fans who judge her for her recent ‘Bachelor’ interview
“If you are an honorable person, you wouldn’t accept interviews to ruin a guy whose only mistake was falling for you. If you are desperate for money, you can find other ways that don’t harm or lead to speculation about Colton. Cali girls are so greedy! 💸💰” one critic wrote in Randolph’s comments after learning about the interview.
Tired of people passing judgment, Randolph chose to respond to the critic who was bashing her for her decision. “You obviously didn’t even watch the interview, as I highly respected Colton throughout. You should probably channel your energy into something more fulfilling instead of talking shit on things you know nothing about. Hope you have a better day. Sorry you’re full of bitterness,” Randolph declared.
Colton Underwood takes subtle shots at his ex-girlfriend
But, critics weren’t the only ones who seemed less than impressed by Randoplph’s decision to go on TV and conduct an interview. Underwood seemed to also take a subtle jab at his ex. “When our relationship ended we agreed to handle things as privately as possible as we attempted to navigate our new relationship as friends. I chose to do that since we were living in this interim period, but obviously a lot changed this week,” Underwood wrote, seemingly in reference to Randolph’s interview.
Clearly, Randolph’s interview caused plenty of drama, despite the fact that she refused to discuss her relationship. Her decision left even some supporters of the Huntington Beach native questioning why even chose to give the interview in the first place. Since she is known for her relationship with Underwood, it was pretty obvious that the topic was going to come up whether she dodged questions or not. On, July 9, 2020, Randolph took to her Instagram story to answer that question for fans.
Randolph explains why she did the GOAT interview
“If you’re wondering why I did the Bachelor GOAT interview, it’s because I respect the fact that Bachelor brought me the platform that I have. I don’t want to make enemies with, or turn my back on the franchise. I have no regrets, gained a great boyfriend and a healthy 1 1/2 year relationship, incredible and unique opportunities, and I platform that I intend to use for good. I want to show appreciation. I didn’t see any harm in doing the interview, as I wasn’t going to dish out details about our relationship to them,” Randolph shared.
Now that Randolph has justified her decisions, perhaps people will stop flooding her page with hate. But, seeing as many people have nothing but time on their hands these days, we highly doubt it will come to a complete halt anytime soon.
