It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for! On the Monday, March 11, episode of The Bachelor, Colton Underwood finally revealed his relationship status. After a messy breakup, the former football player, 27, is dating — not engaged to — Cassie Randolph. Scroll through the gallery below to see their epic journey.
The blonde beauty made quite the entrance when she presented the handsome hunk with a box full of butterflies. “I have so many butterflies,” she said. “Literally, I have so many butterflies.” Colton even put one of the winged creatures in his jacket pocket!
“I just want you to trust me,” Cassie told her dad during her hometown date. “I think you need more than a couple of random dates to fall in love with someone,” he said in his confessional. Cassie’s father did not feel comfortable giving Colton his blessing.
Colton told Cassie that her father did not give him his blessing to propose, and the California beauty was a bit shocked to hear that new bit of information. “I know they want the best for me,” she said about her family. “The fact that they’re not 100 percent sold on Colton and I together kind of freaks me out. It makes me confused if he’s the right person.”
Cassie’s dad, Matt, came to Europe to give his daughter some advice after hometowns. “You seemed conflicted,” he said, referring to her not wanting to get engaged. “I just wish I had more time,” she tearfully told her father. “I don’t want it to be over with him, but it scares me that at the end it’s accepting a proposal, that’s huge. But I’m not ready for it to be over.”
Before her fantasy suite date with Colton, she confessed that she was going to send herself home. “Today was perfect, and I love you so much,” she said. “After today, I’m not like, in love. I don’t know why after today I’m not … I feel like I’m having doubts about it.”
Cassie was surprised when Colton showed up, but he revealed that he needed to tell her something important. “I am asking for a second chance to take it day by day and figure it out,” the handsome hunk said. “This is crazy, this is really crazy. I can’t believe you did that,” she told him. Then, Colton asked her if she would join him in Spain so that she could meet his parents. Fortunately, she said yes!
After some serious conversations, Cassie explained her greatest fear in all of this. “I dated someone in college and he had planned out when he was going to propose to me and then it got pretty controlling,” she said. “You have to change everything for this one person. I know it’s not true, but it’s just something that is so ingrained in me.”
After the duo went to dinner, they decided to give the fantasy suite another shot. Cassie also told Colton she’s “all in.” “I am excited to se where our relationship can go,” he dished. “I have always said I am waiting to be in love with someone, the right person, and I hope that person is Cassie. If the moment is right and if it’s right for us to take the next step in our relationship, then it could happen tonight.”
So, did Colton and Cassie do the deed? “Last night was absolutely incredible, and I feel like a new man,” he said. “We did what was best for our relationship and we grew as a couple. We had a great time last night.” After many ups and downs, Colton revealed that he and Cassie are finally on the same page! “I can’t wait to wake up to her over and over again,” he dished.
The lovebirds made their first debut as a couple and they looked happier than ever! “We’re in love. We’re super in love,” she exclaimed. “We still have a lot of room to grow in our relationship right now, so we’re enjoying dating right now,” Colton said. Colton revealed that he moved to Los Angeles to be near Cassie, but the two will be traveling in the upcoming year, and they’re so excited. Congrats, you two!
