The Next ABC Bachelor Has Been Chosen!


It’s been a long wait, but ABC finally released who the season 23 bachelor will be. On Tuesday’s episode of Good Morning America, the franchise announced that the next bachelor will be…Colton Underwood!

“I’m very excited. Third time is the charm. That’s what they say, right? That’s what I’m hoping for,” Underwood said.

Bachelor nation is not too thrilled about the franchise’s decision to choose Underwood. Numerous fans were rooting for Blake or Jason and say they will not be watching this season.

Throughout Bachelor in Paradise, it was clear that Underwood was not over Becca, and he just ended things with Tia on Monday night’s episode. Why would the franchise choose Underwood to be the next bachelor when it seems like he is still confused?

Which Fan Favorite Will Become the Next Bachelor?

When Michael Strahan asked if Tia will make an appearance on The Bachelor, Underwood stated, “We are finally on the same page, for the first time in our relationship, and we are just good friends.”

Underwood talked about his experience on the show, “That’s one thing that I took pride in on both seasons, is just being true to who I am. I think it took all of that to get to where I am now and know who I am as a person and know what I want in a life partner.”
