Colton Underwood walked away from being The Bachelor at one point during the season, but don’t worry, he came back!
During Monday night’s season premiere, the promo at the end teased the 26-year-old walking away from the show.
It was an emotional moment for Colton, and he opened up to Entertainment Tonight about what he was feeling.
“I was gone for a while. In that moment, and the feelings I was feeling, I left the show. I needed time to myself,” he spilled.
“In the moment I was gone, there was no Bachelor.”
Though he wouldn’t reveal what actually happened leading up to that moment, he is excited for fans to see it all go down.
“I don’t want to say anything and have it taken out of context. I want you guys to be on the roller coaster with me… it’s just a roller coaster of emotions,” he said.
“Chris Harrison finds me… you’ll see how that convo went. There’s just a lot of emotions that go into finding love, obviously. But there’s a lot of emotions that went into filming the show, too.”
He continued, “It was a conversation, not only with Chris but, you know, with myself, just really coming to terms with, ‘Hey, this is happening right now. This is how I have to deal with it, and this is how we’re going to get through.’”
Despite the moment looking like a total breakdown, Colton promises he just needed some time for himself.
“As much as it looks like a breakdown, you’re having these internal breakthroughs. This is what’s going on right now, and this is how we’re going to have to get through it, and this is how I’m going to have to process it, and like I said, in that moment, I just needed to be by myself,” he said.
“There was nobody on the other side of that fence, so I needed to get out and just get gone.”
