If you were a big fan of last season’s “The Bachelorette” and “Bachelor in Paradise,” you are in luck. Colton Underwood jumped from the ‘Bachelorette’ to the ‘Bachelor in Paradise,’ and now onto our next Bachelor. He is 26 years old and is a former pro football player. Colton was born in Indianapolis and grew up in the small town of Washington, Illinois. He has seven siblings and divorced parents that have both been remarried.

When Colton first came in on season 14 of “The Bachelorette,” all of Bachelor Nation fell in love for his good looks, love for dogs, and vulnerability

He played professionally until an injury ended that career. It isn’t all about the looks, after football Colton dedicated himself to helping children fight cystic fibrosis. He started his own charity called the Legacy Foundation because his 6 year old cousin Harper, was diagnosed with the disease at birth. The charity started in 2015 and they’ve already raised over $100,000 through cash donations, to benefit those living with Cystic Fibrosis.

When he’s not helping the charity he’s spending time with family and with his dog sniper. Colton also enjoys hiking through the Colorado Rockies or driving with the windows down listening to country music.

Fun fact about Colton that you might not have known is that he dated the famous Olympic gymnast and speaker, Aly Raisman back in December 2016.

In the episode of “The Bachelorette: Men Tell All,” Colton told the audience he was a virgin and Bachelor Nation went crazy. Colton’s reasoning for never falling in love was that he had always been too busy with his football career, he could never settle down anywhere

Will Colton ever find the right woman to spend his life with? Find out on season 23 of “The Bachelor” in January 2019.
