Poor Cassie Randolph may be taking some serious heat after dumping Colton Underwood, but she has at least one high-profile fan ahead of the Bachelor finale! Actor Gregg Sulkin, who just so happens to be dating Cassie’s sister Michelle Randolph, took to Instagram to share his support for the stunning 23-year-old.
“It’s incredible to see your journey of growth this season and discovery, all whilst eyeballs have been on you at all times, which is not easy in the slightest,” he wrote after Cassie sent herself home, despite Colton professing his love for her. “I know [Michelle] is insanely proud of you and so am I. You’ve been a class act. As always.”
We’re sure Gregg has been a really great resource for Cassie as she gets used to her newfound fame, as he has been acting for years and shared a very publicly scrutinized relationship with Bella Thorne up until a couple of years ago. But now, he seems super committed to Michelle, who is also a budding actress in her own right.
While Cassie has been getting support from her friends and family, she’s also been getting a lot of hate. And not all of it is from fans of the show! Former Bachelor Ben Higgins even threw some shade, saying, “I think she should have done something different with Colton. It’s very clear that she was not into him.”
“As much as she maybe felt the pressure to still be there and just still try to make this work — you know, you have a lot of people counting on you and watching — I think all she wanted to tell him was, ‘You’re a great guy, you’ve proven to be a great guy, but I’m just not that into you and as a result, I need to leave,’” he continued. “But instead, it felt like she was kind of dancing around the subject, going, ‘This is too fast, this isn’t right for me, I just don’t know.’ She knew.” At least she’ll always have her friends and family backing her!
