The Bachelor Fans Are Not Happy About the Selection of Colton Underwood

Becca let the contestant go after her good friend Tia Booth revealed that she had feelings for Colton, whom she dated before his stint on "The Bachelorette". Underwood later addressed the breakup in an Instagram post, thanking Booth for "teaching me even more about myself, and most importantly, for your friendship that I know will continue far beyond Paradise". I hold a lot of value in it and I hold it to a high standard.

Tia and Colton wound up getting together on "Bachelor in Paradise". Third time's the charm hopefully.

Speaking about announcing he is still a virgin on Becca's season of The Bachelorette, he said: 'I think that's the one thing I took pride in, just being true to who I am.

On Tuesday, ABC announced that the star of the next season of The Bachelor will be Colton Underwood, a virginal 26-year-old former National Football League player who came in fourth on Becca Kufrin's season of The Bachelorette and then got entangled in a very unpopular storyline on Bachelor in Paradise where Tia Booth tried in vain to force him to fall in love with her for most of the season. "That's what I'm hoping for!"

Justice Department lawyers have previously said Rosenstein is aware of the scope and activities of Mueller's investigation. Some Republicans in Congress who have defended Sessions have made room for the president's intense criticisms.

Underwood, 26, dated Needham native and Olympic gold medal gymnast Aly Raisman during parts of 2016 and 2017 before joining the cast of the most recent season of ABC's "The Bachelorette".

Minutes after the announcement was made, fans of the show took to social media to complain about the pick for 2019, with many believing runner up Blake Horstmann deserved to be the next Bachelor, while others who had been campaigning for Jason Tartick tweeting their objections. And though Colton is clearly having second thoughts about dating Tia, that sentiment does not appear to be requited.

Congratulations to Colton, or better yet, good luck.

Are you looking forward to Underwood's turn as the Bachelor?
