Let’s Meet the Women: Colton Underwood’s Contestants Revealed

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at FSU chapter.

Third time’s the charm is all we can hope for in this upcoming season of The Bachelor. With Colton Underwood having starred in Becca Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette and the last season of The Bachelor in Paradise without finding love, this is his last opportunity to do so within the reality TV world. If you don’t remember how Colton looks, think of what it would look like if a Ken doll’s good looks met a pro football player’s charm. Oh, and he shook things up by announcing he was a virgin. Then he shook things up again by announcing he had a thing with prior the Bachelor contestant, Tia Booth, before he went onto Becca’s season. Basically, these women should be prepared for anything because Colton knows a thing or two about plot twists.

After seeing all of these women, I have so many questions. Do the Miss North Carolina and Miss Alabama bachelorettes know each other? Is there drama there? Why are so many people from California? Also, is everyone on this show 23?  Is being Cinderella considered a job in Texas? Why is Heather’s occupation “Never Been Kissed?” Also, can Alex D. tell me more about what being a sloth entails? It’s sure to be a good season with all of these options. I have a good feeling about this season, especially about Cassie and Hannah G. Because Sydney, Annie and Katie had the opportunity to meet Colton on the Ellen DeGeneres show prior to The Bachelor, don’t count them out.


Season 23 airs on Monday, Jan. 7 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
