The season premiere of The Bachelor was all about Colton Underwood’s virginity, but it hopefully won’t be a conversation point the entire season!
Though plenty of women made jokes about the 26-year-old’s v-card during the January 7th episode, Colton also took the time to explain why he hasn’t lost it just yet.
“It was a conscious decision at first then I really started diving deep into my professional football career and my personal life took a backseat,” he explained during the episode.
“It’s not like I’m going to lose it on a one-night stand … it’s just very important to me.”
Colton first opened up about his virginity during Becca Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette and it seems like it’s the only thing people can talk about these days.
For those of you who are wondering, the former NFL player revealed to Entertainment Tonight back in December that his virginity pact is not about religion.
“It’s about finding the person that’s for me, and that’s going to, you know, obviously share a very special moment,” he said.
As for the Fantasy Suites, he’s not too concerned about how he’ll handle them.
“We’re gonna cross that bridge when we get there. It’s just all depending on where my feelings are,” he expressed.
“I said I’m waiting for someone that has the right heart. I’m waiting to be madly in love with somebody, so if that happens by the time fantasy suites comes around, so be it.”
While he knows the women will probably have questions regarding his virginity, he is hoping to just live in every moment.
“I’m sure they’re going to have their questions, and I’m willing to answer them. I can’t speak on their behalf, I don’t know what they’re going to ask and how they’re gonna feel about it,” he said.
“But, you know, I’m just going to be present in the moment and enjoy every second I have.”
Do you think Colton will be a virgin by the end of this season?! Let us know your thoughts!
