Bachelor Nation is rooting for Colton Underwood!
The 26-year-old’s season started last night — Monday, January 7 — and a lot of his Bachelor and Bachelorette pals sent him support on social media.
Blake Horstmann, who is one of Colton’s best friends and also competed on Becca Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette, wrote a sweet post on Instagram.
“So it begins…Good luck to this smiley, devilishly handsome, fence jumping man that I’m lucky enough to call a friend. Can’t wait to watch it all unfold,” he wrote.
Jason Tartick, who is also one of Colton’s good pals, sent his congratulations to Colton as well.
“Feels like yesterday we were holding our breath for 2 hours watching The Bachelorette premier…onto the next one, big day for the kid on Monday!” he wrote.
“@coltonunderwood you may need to substitute that water for wine this time!”
Former Bachelor star Ben Higgins also shared a photo from his time on the show, writing, “From software salesman to professional football player the @bachelorabc is def upgrading their bachelor this season.”
He continued, “Wishing you the best @coltonunderwood. And also, it’s still cool to look back this picture with the best host on television @chrisbharrison.”
Sean Lowe, who has been compared to Colton a lot in recent weeks, tweeted, “Good luck with the circus that starts tonight @colton! Have fun with it because it’s all pretend anyway and it will in no way affect your future.”
Calia Quinn, who competed on Ben Higgins’ season of The Bachelor, reflected on her time on the show.
“It’s been three years, but I still gather with girlfriends to watch the premiere. Can’t believe Colton’s ladies will be stepping out of the limo tonight!!”
Colton also shared his own post on Instagram, writing, “Today is the day! The premiere of The Bachelor airs tonight and I can’t wait for you all to experience what I did. Love isn’t always pretty, clear or easy…I learned that on The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise and I’m so grateful for those opportunities to grow as a person.”
He continued, “Tonight, you will meet 30 incredible women & start following our crazy ride. You all are in for a great season… one that taught me many things. See you all tonight!”
