We’re inching closer to the end of Colton Underwood‘s journey to find love on The Bachelor. Last we saw, he made his epic jump over the fence that had Chris Harrison and the rest of the crew chasing him through the Portuguese wilderness. During the March 11 episode, he also said a few shocking goodbyes to contestants we love. Keep scrolling for the dramatic recap of the night one finale!
“I’ve been through enough knowing that I’m enough. All of it makes me stronger, so I’m OK … Every time I put myself out there I get f—king rejected,” Colton tearily told Chris before saying that he wanted to quit.
The next day, the two franchise studs had a long conversation about the events of the night before. “Every time something good happens to me it’s always followed by something bad,” the former football player confessed. He also added about Cassie’s dramatic exit, “I knew she was leaving … that was the peak of knowing how much she meant to me.”
The first stop on the breakup train was unfortunately Tayshia. “You’re incredible and I just owe you the respect and honestly like we’ve been with each other this entire time,” Colton began. “I knew that I was falling for you, but, in my heart, I know I can’t love two people. My heart is with somebody else. I love Cassie.”
Tayshia and Colton crossed paths for the first time during the finale live show. “To be honest with you, it hurt,” Tayshia reflected to the reality host about their split. “I don’t think anybody really wants to hear that. Especially when I feel like … I opened up about everything, I went outside my comfort zone in the hopes of having an amazing foundation of a relationship with Colton and I.”
She finally got to ask Colton what was missing from their relationship when they sat down together. He admitted that his heart was closed off because it already belonged to Cassie. That seemed to be the closure that the reality beauty needed. They ended on good terms and Tayshia says she loves the woman she’s become from the experience.
As rough as his end with Tayshia was, we were not prepared for Hannah G. “You’ve been my rock through all of this,” Colton started to explain to the blonde beauty. “You’ve been someone who’s always picked me up. In the hardest times, you’ve helped me get through all of that.”
Hannah was shocked and said she felt “blindsided.” She also added that she couldn’t imagine another relationship being as strong as theirs. After watching the season, fans kind of thought the same thing.
There’s more to come! “I’m willing to do anything and everything because that’s how much I love Cassie,” Colton said ready to fight for his girl. The episode ended with him knocking on her hotel door to ask for a second chance. Will she give him a second chance? We’ll find out soon during part two on March 12.
