Are You Ready For The New Season Of 'The Bachelor' To Kick Off January 7th?

 

So, we know that 26-year-old Colton Underwood is going to be taking the lead role as America's Bachelor come January 7th! He's a virgin - which ABC is making sure we don't forget, peep that 40-Year-Old Virgin poster they put Colton on.

But, here are some things you may not know...Colton runs a very successful non-profit. He was named after Indianapolis Colts. He previous dated Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman. He has a dog named Sniper.

He was kind of a controversial choice because a lot of people thought he was BS, didn't really feel like his story made sense. So, Chris Harrison explained, "He was just brutally honest about it [being a virgin] and I have to give him a lot of credit, because that's not an easy thing to do knowing that millions of people are going to be dissecting it and talking about it."

Chris added that Colton is really excited for fans to get past the virgin joke. I have to say I am too, as a huge Bachelor Nation fan. I can't wait to see more of Colton, other than just "Colton the virgin." 

The season premiere on ABC January 7th @ 8pm. Put it in your calendars now!
