BYE BYE, VIR­GIN BACH­E­LOR?

Colton Un­der­wood talks to Us about sea­son 23 — and whether he can now shed his fa­mous nick­name

US Weekly - - REALITY BOMBSHELL - BY EMILY LON­GERETTA

This sea­son’s Bach­e­lor knows a thing or two about play­ing coy — es­pe­cially when it comes to his vir­gin­ity. “I think a lot of peo­ple maybe mis­un­der­stood it or still don’t un­der­stand why

I’m a vir­gin. I think those an­swers might come out this sea­son,” Colton Un­der­wood tells Us.

Ex­cept that the an­swer every­body’s re­ally look­ing for now that film­ing has wrapped isn’t why he’s a vir­gin but if he’s still one.

“Ob­vi­ously, if I an­swered that ques­tion, I would be spoil­ing the rest of the sea­son, and I wouldn’t want to do that for you,” the 26-year-old NFL player cheek­ily says. But he does pro­vide this clue: “I al­ways said from the be­gin­ning,

I’m wait­ing for the right heart and some­body I can share the rest of my life with to share that mo­ment with.”

Even though Colton’s V-card was at the cen­ter of all the show’s pro­mo­tional ma­te­ri­als lead­ing up to the sea­son, he tells Us that his big­gest frus­tra­tion while film­ing was that very topic: “I’m a hu­man be­ing. We’re all hu­man be­ings, we all have parts of our life that make us into unique in­di­vid­u­als. That just hap­pens to be a small part of my life.”

Colton won’t re­veal whether he ul­ti­mately got down on one knee at the end of the sea­son, but he does say that this is “the hap­pi­est [I’ve] ever been,” sim­ply be­cause he found him­self dur­ing the jour­ney: “I’m not per­fect but I have a sense of who I am and what I want to be­come. I might not have it all fig­ured out, I might not have all the an­swers, but at least I have a sense of what I want out of life.” Which means we’ll have to tune in to find out the an­swer to our ques­tion!

“This sea­son wasn’t the eas­i­est for me,” Colton tells Us. “It got re­ally hard, and re­ally pushed me. It al­lowed itme to grow.”
