Age is nothing but a number when it comes to competing on The Bachelor!
It’s no secret Colton Underwood is just 26 years old, which is a tad young when it comes to being the leading man, but he has a few older women who are definitely interested in him.
On last night’s episode of The Bachelor, the former football star got to spend quality time with 31-year-old Elyse.
The pair got close while on a group date, which included playing a game of football.
“You killed it. That was so sexy. You went up there and I was like, ‘Okay. All right!’” Colton told Elyse.
“Hearing you talk about your 20s and what you learned, it was fun. You took like, this attitude and this sexiness — now you’re changing it up and going [for someone] a little younger. I’m all for it.”
Though she’s only a few years older than Colton, Elyse does consider herself to be a cougar.
“We have the cougar den. Colton’s cougars! All the 27 and ups are [staying] in the same room,” Elyse said.
“Oh really? What room is that?” Colton asked.
Elyse added, “We’ll put a sign up for you.”
Despite the age gap — which really isn’t that much, if you ask us — neither Colton nor Elyse feel it’s that big of a deal.
“Age doesn’t define anything,” Colton added.
“As much as I was making a joke about the age thing, you can be 22 and life may have dealt you a lot of cards, or be 31 and gone through things, or had it really easy,” Elyse shared.
“It totally changes where you’re at in your life.”
