It finally happened! For this whole season of The Bachelorette, fans have been waiting for the moment where Colton Underwood reveals to Becca Kufrin that he’s a virgin, and on the July 9 episode that convo finally took place. Despite his very honest demeanor, some fans still aren’t buying that a 26-year-old former NFL star could have never had sex; especially since he dated Olympian Aly Raisman for two whole years! Now, fans are begging Aly to spill the truth.
“I just want a tell-all interview with Aly Raisman on Colton,” wrote one fan. Another agreed, saying, “weekly reminder tweet that I want Queen Aly Raisman to drag Colton and expose him.” “I love how Becca basically just asked Colton, ‘so is Aly Raisman a virgin too?'” said a fan, though of course Becca didn’t mention Aly’s name, and it’s still unclear if she realizes the Olympian was his former flame.
Others think that Becca might be disappointed that she probably can’t ‘try before she buys’, if you catch our drift,. One wrote, “Becca now realizes she will not be having sex with Colton in the fantasy suite and that was def her plan.”

However, Becca herself seemed impressed with Colton’s honesty. Though the editing made it look like she stormed off, she later tweeted to clarfiy. “For the record I think I got up just to go to the bathroom sooooo…” along with a shrugging emoji. She later returns and gushes about him.
“Colton telling me he’s a virgin was unexpected because he hasn’t experienced a ton of life like most people at this part of their lives have,” said Becca. “But it means so much that he was able to open up about something that was so difficult for him. I loved when he said, ‘It’s not a marriage thing for me, it’s a heart thing.’ I appreciate someone who takes that so seriously.”
Colton explained that he’s not waiting for marriage, just the right person. He says he was so focused on sports that he missed out on his personal lifewhen he was younger, and even tried to hide it from his former teammates with locker room talk because he was ashamed. “It really threw me for a loop because it was like, ‘Who am I? Why did I make up lies? Why wasn’t I proud of who I was? Why didn’t I stand up for the man I am?’ And that’s why now it’s important for me to share that with you,” he said.
I’m not happy about the way Colton’s virginity was portrayed on this episode. Like it’s a reason not to further pursue a romantic relationship with someone…
