She shared a picture of her with Colton, seemingly from the weekend they spent together before he did Becca Kufrin's Bachelorette season. I think part of me wanted this to work so bad.

In a confessional, Colton said, "She's one of the best people I know". "It took all of that to get to where I'm at now and know who I am as a person and know what I want in a life partner". That season was the most shocking one so far.

Colton didn't need much time, apparently, as he'll soon be dating somewhere around 30 different women when the new season of The Bachelor begins.

Nick in the Morning readers were teased last week about how Colton Underwood might be the new star of ABC's "The Bachelor". He also isn't the only virgin to compete on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette. Towards the end of his tenure with the Raiders, Underwood made headlines because of his confirmed relationship with gold-medal Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman. After getting eliminated in fourth place, he went on to participate in Season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise and struck up a relationship with former Bachelor contestant Tia Booth, whom he had briefly dated in the weeks before meeting Kufrin.

Liverpool have started this season by winning all four matches, momentarily leaving them at the top of the Premier League table. We're not always going to have the best performances but we'll take the result every day of the week.

The entire timeline of the relationship is still a bit murky, but by the time of their breakup on episode 8, Tia revealed that she had known Colton for six months.

But even putting that all those criticisms aside (justice for Wills Reid!), we have to wonder if the 26-year-old is even ready to pick a potential wife. Underwood added that he couldn't wait to see what the future holds for her and he joked about catching up again at some point over a hot dog dinner.

'Post-football, Colton has dedicated himself to helping children fighting Cystic Fibrosis.
