Ever since Underwood’s season finale, the rocky beginning of his relationship with Cassie Randolph, fans and members of Bachelor Nation alike have weighed in on the couple’s every move.

Today, Underwood and Randolph seem happy together and say they’re in a good place. But the criticism and scrutiny still get to them occasionally.

A couple weeks ago, Randolph shared a lengthy Instagram post about the struggles that come along with being in a very public romantic relationship.

“Being in such a public relationship comes with its own set of added issues to manage. Our every move together is analyzed and every word is dissected. At times it can feel like our relationship status isn’t just a matter of our own happiness, but other people’s happiness too. Strangers (most well meaning, thank you!) are so wrapped up in our relationship’s success or failure that this can create an unhealthy pressure and at times it’s caused me to question the reliability of my own feelings,” wrote Randolph.

Sydney Lotuaco was the first to say Underwood was the worst kiss she’d ever had. 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 did indeed agree.

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