This is awkward! On the upcoming episode of The Bachelorette on Monday, June 11, contestant Colton Underwood will reunite with his ex Tia Booth, who was on Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season of The Bachelor last year alongside Becca Kufrin.
Tia will be joined by former contestants Caroline Lunny, Bekah Martinez, Seinne Fleming, and Kendall Long for a spa date with Becca, but, there wouldn't be any drama if Colton and Tia didn't run into each other during the episode. "I dated Tia," Colton explains in his confessional. "This is a little more than I expected."
What's even more uncomfortable is Tia's confession to Becca considering Colton has proclaimed to be a virgin. "We kissed," she shared. Becca tearfully responded, "I'm just done."
During Season 22 of The Bachelor, Colton had his eyes on Tia, and clearly expressed his feelings for her via social media. While we don't know exactly what happened between the two of them, we have a feeling they slid into each other's DMs. But according to Reality Steve, he “ghosted” Tia when he got the opportunity to be on reality TV.
Colton opened up about his past relationship with Tia during last week's episode. "I’m really nervous about tonight. Becca and I are going to have our first big conversation. There’s something that Becca doesn’t know about me that I need her to know. And it’s something that has been worrying me since the moment I stepped out of the limo on Night 1," he said. "So like, the thing that I’m going to have the conversation tonight about, is — prior to coming on the show — I had a relationship with Tia, from last season. Tia and Becca are good friends. And it is something that needs to be addressed."

Luckily for Colton, it seems Becca ends up being ok with their past relationship. "Yeah, they did have a past, so that’s something Tia and I had conversations about," she told Entertainment Tonight in a previous interview. “They dated. I don’t know how serious it was, but you’ll see all of that unfold throughout the season as well." We can't wait to watch the drama unfold next week!
