Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph broke up after ‘The Bachelor’

In May 2020, Underwood and Randolph announced their breakup to Bachelor Nation. Neither party revealed the cause for the split. Though Underwood and Randolph shared they would remain friends.

“Its been a crazy few months to say the least,” Underwood wrote on Instagram. “Cass and I have been doing a lot of self-reflecting. Sometimes people are just meant to be friends – and that’s okay.”

He continued, “We both have grown immensely and been through so much together – so this isn’t the end of our story, it’s the start of a whole new chapter for us.”

Then in her own Instagram post, Randolph wrote, “Colton and I have broken up, but have decided to remain a part of each others lives. With all that we have gone through, we have a special bond that will always be there. I love Colton very much and have an enormous amount of respect for him.”

A few months after Underwood and Randolph’s split, the former bachelor was spotted with Hale. TMZ reported Underwood and Hale were going on “casual hike dates” together. Us Weekly also claimed the two were “hanging out and casually dating in a non-traditional way due to the pandemic.”

But amid the rumors, Hale revealed she was single during an interview with Entertainment Tonight

“I feel more single than ever, but it’s fine,” she said in July 2020. “I feel the only way I’m gonna date someone next is if they make my life better because I’m so happy right now having my own routine.”

That said, Hale indicated she was still open to dating. Though it might take some time. 

“I’m on a dating site now and I still never met up with any of them because I’m too nervous,” she said.

Meanwhile, Underwood answered a few questions about his dating life during the Chat4Good panel on Aug. 11. And once again, the 28-year-old pointed out his relationship status is single.

“I would consider myself single right now. I’m happily single,” Underwood said, per Us Weekly. “My next relationship I’m already in and that’s with myself. I’ve decided that I want to spend my energy and focus on all my attention on myself, which I’m actually weirdly loving. It sounds so crazy [and] so weird.”

Underwood also revealed he is looking for a partner who compliments his lifestyle. 

“I don’t want to say my exes weren’t this. But I just want somebody who complements and fits into my life seamlessly,” he said. “I don’t want to feel like it has to be forced or set up or feel like we have to compromise too much.”
