Former participants from The Bachelor and Bachelorette have to stick up for one another, right?!
Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky is defending current Bachelor Colton Underwood after some fans said they weren’t happy about the 27-year-old being the leading man this season.
“A lot of people are kind of hating on Colton. I feel bad for him. He’s a person, give him a break,” she told Life & Style.
“It’s so crazy — you would never meet someone and say mean things to their face, right? So, you realize he sees these things and he is a human being with feelings. Be nice to the poor guy!”
It’s true — some fans were not very kind about Colton on social media and even started the hashtag, #NotMyBachelor.
“If you ever wanted to see what a yawn looked like in physical form. #TheBachelor #NotMyBachelor,” one fan tweeted back in September alongside a picture of Colton.
“Let me explain something to @ABCNetwork The bachelor/bachelorette/BIP is one of the one things that I look forward to watching,” another person wrote.
“But when you shove people like Colton in my face and expect me to embrace him as new #TheBachelor you make me want 2 stay in bed and cry #notmybachelor.”
One more person said, “First you don’t choose Peter and now you don’t choose Jason?? Whhyyyyyyyyy?!? @BachelorABC #NotMyBachelor #JasonforBachelor.”
Though some people aren’t into him, Ali is rooting for the former NFL star. Not to mention, she hopes he doesn’t succumb to pressure from the producers.
“I mean, he said some things like ‘I could lose my virginity on this [show].’ I am like, ‘Come on, Colton,’” she said.
“Don’t let them pull you into the whole thing but you know, in a way, he has to play a game and he’s going to.”
