Former Bachelor star Colton Underwood thinks fans are in for a good season with Hannah Brown taking the lead as the newest Bachelorette. The former football player found his happy ending with Cassie Randolph and he’s excited about his ex having the opportunity to find hers. The Alabama native is taking the wheel of season 15 and the reality couple is here for it.

“I think it’s gonna be a fantastic season,” the 27-year-old gushed to guest host Mila Kunis on April 11 during The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “She is like unapologetically herself, she has no filter. And that makes for good TV and falling in love. I’m very excited.” One thing fans absolutely love about the former beauty queen is how genuine she came off as a contestant. It’s great to hear that she’ll bring that to the table during the new season.

Colton was joined by his girlfriend on the show, who gave an equally diplomatic answer. “I’m so excited to watch her, I think she’s gonna do great,” the Huntington Beach native, 23, divulged.

It’s great to see Bachelor Nation supporting each other but it would’ve been nice to get a little more tea from the young couple. Sigh.

At the beginning of the interview, Colton dished that he and Cassie were wrapping up the crazy press tour that ensued after the show’s finale. They love being a ~regular~ couple, so we’re sure they’re excited to get back to their day-to-day lives. The blonde beauty recently made the move to Los Angeles to be “closer to Colton.”

However, they’re taking things one step at a time. The grad student lives with her sister, Michelle Randolph, because the reality duo decided to wait before sharing a key. “Colton and Cassie have made the mutual decision that the timing just isn’t right to live together at the moment,” a source exclusively told Life & Style. “They’re waiting to see if their feelings continue to grow to marriage-level commitment. She really does want to see if it will work for them 100 percent, and in order to do that, she realizes she needs to take it at a normal pace.”

They seem absolutely smitten with each other so we’re sure it’s only a matter of time.
