Lauren Burnham: Jenna Cooper is NOT a Cheater!!

Last month, the Bachelor in Paradise finale was marred by a cheating scandal. Jenna Cooper and Jordan Kimball won ... and then all hell broke loose.

Alleged texts say that Jenna was cheating, but she swears that she's a victim of fraud -- and says she can prove it.

Now, she's being defended by none other than Bachelor Winner Lauren Burnham.

Burnham on a Boat!

So, remember how Bekah Martinez told the world that most of the women from The Bachelor had still kept in touch?

Well, several women from Arie's season, including Lauren Burnham, Jaqueline Turmbull, and Sienne Flemming, got together for a slumber party.

(Yes, these women had all dated Arie, yes, Lauren is his fiancee, and yes, Arie was apparently also there)

One of Arie's exes who was present was Jenna Cooper, who was eliminated in week 6 of the season.

These women are friends, so the gathering makes sense -- except to fans who think that Jenna is some sort of snake in the grass.

Jenna Cooper on IG stories party time

A fan commented on Instagram, writing: "Anyone else think it's so shady that they're all hanging out with Jenna?"

The comment concludes: "after she proved how terrible of a human she is?"

If you're wondering wait, when did she "prove" she's terrible? ... you are not alone.

"No spewing hate here, love," Lauren Burnham replied to the fan's comment.

"There are two sides to every story," Lauren reminds the commenter.

"And," Lauren says. "The only evidence I know of backs the fact that Jenna did not do what she's being accused of."

Lauren Burnham Defends Jenna Cooper on IG

"What's the evidence?" a curious fan demands to know.

Lauren clearly has a healthy set of boundaries (for a Bachelor star, anyway), because she doesn't cough up the goods.

"That's for her to release," Lauren replies.

She is absolutely correct -- we'll get into what that evidence may be in just a moment.

"It should be happening very soon," Lauren teases.

A lot of fans would be very happy to see solid proof instead of relying upon speculation.

Burnham, Lauren

Lauren reminds fans that she is not exactly the type to just decide who is innocent and who is guilty all willy-nilly.

"I am not one to jump on the bandwagon and take a side without solid evidence," Lauren affirms.

"I can tell you that her story is very compelling," Lauren adds. "And she has professional proof."

She then offers a worde of warning for fans who leapt to conclusions when this alleged cheating scandal first broke.

Lauren suggests: "I would just advise not to be so quick to publicly state opinions without knowing the whole story."

Jordan and Jenna

Jenna was accused of cheating after text messages were published which purportedly showed that Jenna was cheating on Jordan Kimball.

Those same texts indicated that she was planning on dumping him, which would have been humiliating after his Bachelor in Paradise proposal.

However, Jenna has insisted that, though the texts emulate her writing style, she didn't write them.

She has also taken the extra step of hiring an attorney in her quest to clear her name.

Jenna put her phone through a forensic program to prove that she has never sent any texts of the sort.

(Such a program would capture even deleted text messages)

Jenna Cooper is Sad

It is probably that forensic analysis to which Lauren is referring.

However, there may be more. Jenna's own attorneys have expressed the belief that Jordan himself may have fabricated the texts.

It is possible that this theory, expressed in a private email to him that Jordan then made public, was intended as a negotiating tactic or a bluff.

But it is also possible that Jenna's attorneys have uncovered further evidence -- of Jenna's innocence or even of Jordan's alleged guilt.

If Lauren is right, Jenna may air at least some of her evidence soon.

Cristy Caserta, Former Bachelor Suitor, Dead at 38

Cristy Caserta, a woman who vied for the heart of Brad Womack on The Bachelor Season 15, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday after suffering an apparent seizure.

She was 38 years old.

Cristy Caserta

According to law enforcement officials, per TMZ, Caserta was attending a class at a school in Sunrise, Florida when she suddenly fell forward at the desk where she was sitting.

Her alarmed classmates quickly dialed 911.

Tragically, however, Caserta went into cardiac arrest as the paramedics arrived and administered CPR.

She was transported to nearby Westside Regional Medical Center ... where they continued efforts to save her, but it was too late. She was pronounced dead not long after her arrival.

The police have said they don't suspect foul play and that no drugs were found in Caserta's system.

An autopsy will be performed Friday to determine the official cause of death.

This is what the Sunrise Police Department in Florida said about Caserta, who worked as an attorney:

“The students around her noticed her coffee fell to the ground and thought maybe she fell asleep, but she was unresponsive when they approached her.

"They called 911, and Fire Rescue showed up and started CPR and she was still unresponsive."

As mentioned above, Caserta was featured on Womack's second season as The Bachelor.

She was sent home during the first week.

Stephen Carbone, the blogger behind the Bachelor spoilers site Reality Steve, paid tribute to Caserta on Thursday night, writing:

Brad W.

“Sick to my stomach to see that Cristy Caserta from Brad Womack’s 2nd season has suddenly passed away.

"Cristy was always there to give me legal advice in the past. I’m at a loss after seeing people post on her FB. Just spoke a couple weeks ago. RIP my friend.�

In January, Caserta started a job working as a corporate lawyer for a healthcare staffing agency in Sunrise.

She had worked as a lawyer at a different company during her time on The Bachelor and was granted leave to appear on the series.

Womack, who previously anchored The Bachelor Season 11 in 2007, is pictured above.

He ended up proposing to Emily Maynard, but they broke up a few months after the finale.

Neither Brad nor anyone associated with the show has commented yet on Caserta's death.

May she rest in peace.

Colton Underwood: A Manipulative Creep Who Wants Fame, Not Love?

A couple of previous leading men have warned that Colton Underwood will hate being the Bachelor. It's a harder job than it seems.

But the The Bachelor Spoilers that we're hearing about Colton's season is painting a different picture.

It sounds like Colton is much shadier than anyone had ever imagined.

Colton Confessional

Speaking to HollywoodLife, a source says that the wide-eyed virgin Colton Underwood is a fame-hungry manipulator.

"Colton's smart," the insider says.

As proof, they point to his actions since he joined the Bachelor Fam.

"All his moves were well calculated," the source claims.

"After getting eliminated on The Bachelorette," the insider points out. "He joined Tia in Bachelor in Paradise."

Colton Underwood and Tia Booth: No Hard Feelings

Going from one to the next is just part of the gig for a lot of stars, but it's the timing of Colton's moves that is raising eyebrows.

"And then," the source narrates, Colton "broke up with her"

The insider points out that Colton did that "just in time to get his own show."

That's a pretty serious accusations -- since Tia is a real person with real feelings.

"It’s no wonder she doesn’t feel like he’s ready [for a serious relationship]," the source concludes.

Tia is not Colton's only ex with concerns about him. But this next piece of info is a bit of a spoiler.

Annie Reardon

Annie Reardon is one of the women competing for Colton's heart. 

She even got to meet him early, in an appearance on Ellen. That's a promising start, right?

On October 2, Reality Steve revealed that Annie had been home for a week.

What's more, she apparently -- if we're to take her at her word -- chose to come home rather than continue competing for Colton.

Reality Steve revealed a Snapchat that appeared to show Annie dragging Colton.

"When you dump the Bachelor bc he's weird as s--t," her allegedcaption began.

The caption continued: "And are headed back to normal, happy life without psycho people."

Colton

We are intensely curious to find out what transpired to send Annie running home to her seven dogs.

But Annie isn't alone in thinking that Colton may not be the best leading man ever.

It wasn't so long ago that Dean Unglert looks like a solid candidate to be an unusually young Bachelor.

Dean blew his goodwill in a disastrous Bachelor in Paradise love triangle.

And though he redeemed himself on The Bachelor: Winter Games, he's no longer the apple of the Bachelor Nation's eye.

Dean Unglert and Lion Cub

Deanie Babies warns that Colton Underwood will be the worst Bachelor ever.

It's not that Dean is trying to be mean.

But Colton has a history of appearing to be wildly indecisive.

Being the leading man this show is literally just making decisions. It's hell if you can't make choices and stick to them.

That said, if Colton is a shrewd calculator rather than being truly indecisive, maybe Dean has him pegged all wrong.

Colton Underwood with a Pen

While we're talking about Colton as a reality star, we should also talk about Colton as a boyfriend.

He may be hot, but if you read between the lines of ex-girlfriend Aly Raisman's book, he may lack inner beauty.

Olympic champion Aly wrote a tell-all book that mentions her dating an unnamed football player.

She describes this guy having her fly out to watch him play, and then says that he was only interested in hearing people on the radio discuss him after his game.

He allegedly became irritable when she assumed that he was joking.

Without actually name-dropping him, it sounds like Aly accused Colton of being a selfish jerk.

Colton Underwood Picture

The idea that he just wanted to hear his name on the radio really blends with the rest of this picture that is forming.

Annie was very vague in her snap, but the source that spoke to HollywoodLife was not.

It could be that Colton is self-obsessed and putting on a puppy-like facade to milk the Bachelor Nation for fame and attention.

But it's also definitely possible that people are on their guard after Arie's season, and a little too eager to spot a wolf in sheep's clothing.

We may have to wait and see to find out what kind of man Colton really is.

Corinne Olympios: Colton Underwood is LYING About Being a Virgin!

Back in June, Bachelor Villain (or perhaps misunderstood Bachelor Hero?) Corinne Olympios lamented that The Bachelorette totally sucks now.

Well, it sounds like she's not feeling super optimistic about The Bachelor, either, with Colton Underwood as the leading man.

Not only does she think that someone else would be better, but she doesn't buy Colton's claim to be a virgin for a second.

Corinne Olympios Poses on Instagram

On Wednesday, September 26, Corinne Olympios did an interview on the Domenick Nati Show.

And she has some doubts about the indecisive jock whom ABC has selected as the next Bachelor.

"I just have some insincere feelings I get from him," Corinne explains.

"So, we’ll see how that pans out," Corinne says before explaining what she thinks is so insincere about him.

"I do think that [his virginity] was a lie," Corinne admits. "I don’t know why, but I just don’t buy it."

Colton Underwood Works Out Shirtless

Corinne isn't convinced that Colton is completely honest, but she shares who her pick for the Bachelor would have been.

"I liked Blake a lot," she shares. "I totally thought it should have been Blake."

Blake Horstmann is a very popular dude.

That said, Corinne says that she totally understands why the producers settled on Colton.

"But, you know, I think Colton was a crowd favorite," Corinne acknowledges. "And that’s really what they’re interested in."

Blake Horstmann

Corinne also has some advice for Colton -- or for anyone else who might fill those shoes.

"Don’t let the fame get to your head," Corinne advises.

She would know -- she's been in the orbits of a lot of men from the Bachelor franchise.

Corinne shares: "I don’t like guys that get cocky after that."

Honestly, who does?

Corinne Olympios, Kiss

Colton's virginity could change a lot about this upcoming season of The Bachelor.

But, as he recently explained to Ellen, it won't be as awkward as people make it out to be.

"You could do more in the fantasy suites than just have sex," Colton points out.

A lot of Bachelor couples use the fantasy suites to speak without a camera for the first time. That can be important.

Or, as Colton suggests: "I mean, we could play board games, we could hang out."

Colton Underwood with a Pen

We don't necessarily suggest that Colton play a board game. He and those final candidates to become his fiancee should really get to know one another.

Though many would be horrified at the idea of becoming engaged to someone without having sex first, we're not saying that sex is mandatory.

Instead, he and the women can talk one-on-one without cameras or judgment. That could really help him to make a decision.

And, quite frankly, it could help the women decide if they want to accept his potential proposal.

After a while, they might decide that they, too, don't think that he's being entirely honest.

Dean Unglert: Colton Underwood Will Be the Worst Bachelor EVER!

Dean Unglert is best known for having made a self-admitted a$$ out of himself on Bachelor on Paradise.

But the ABC personality is here with a dire warning for anyone who is excited about Colton Underwood as the network's next Bachelor...

Dean Unglert Snapshot

... and that warning is this:

Underwood is about to make a major a$$ out of the show in general!

In a manner of speaking, that is.

"I love Colton, don't get me wrong, but [he's] not my Bachelor," Unglert told Entertainment Tonight at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Festival at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, adding:

"He's a very nice person... He's well-intentioned. He is beautiful."

Alright! Great!

So... what is Unglert's objection to Underwood being named The Bachelor?

"I just think it's going to be a dumpster fire."

Oh. Okay then.

Colton

Underwood finished in third place on the most recent season The Bachelorette.

He is famously a virgin, although not for religious reasons. Colton has simple said on numerous occasions that he's waiting for the right person with whom he wants to knock boots for the first time.

Specifically, what is Unglert's beef with Underwood?

He's a little young. He's younger than me," Unglert explained to ET, expounding as follows:

"He might be more advanced in his life than I am, but I don't necessarily see him marrying the woman that he chooses... I don't think he knows exactly what he wants."

This may be true, of course.

But it's unclear why Dean would say this about Colton.

Colton Underwood on GMA

If anything, Underwood appears to be taking the whole idea of finding the right woman as seriously as anyone can.

The guy hasn't even had sex yet because he wants to be sure!

Unglert himself was once a frontrunner for The Bachelor... until he got himself involved in an intense and explosive love triangle on Bachelor in Paradise Season 4.

And he at least says here that he would not any better as a Bachelor than he predicts Underwood will be.

"I imagine Colton's season going the same way mine would [have], where he wants to do right by everyone and wants no one to hate him and that's going to just go ahead and bite him right ahead in the butt," Unglert said in this interview.

"I'd be a horrible Bachelor for the same reasons Colton would be horrible and will be horrible."

Dean Unglert in Paradise

Fair enough.

Unglert concludes by offering up better options he thinks ABC should have gone with for its next Bachelor.

"It should've been Jason, it should've been Blake, it should've been Ben, maybe Nick again. It could've been Peter," he says.

Do you agree?

Or are you actually looking forward to Colton Underwood as The Bachelor, especially that REALLY awkward fantasy suite episode?

Nick Viall and Ben Higgins: Colton Underwood Will Hate Being The Bachelor!

In early September, Colton Underwood was confirmed as the next Bachelor, and everyone has an opinion on it. He's a polarizing choice.

Former Bachelors Ben Higgins and Nick Viall are weighing in on the pick in a new interview.

They're concerned for Colton and say that this experience will "eat him alive."

As you'll see in the video that we've included, Ben and Nick spoke to Entertainment Tonight.

"I think we're going to see him struggle," Ben predicts.

Ben continues: "I think it's going to be a very authentic journey of, like, struggling, success, failure, lot of tears."

Colton is an emotionally expressive person, and he experienced a lot of heartache. That isn't his problem, though, but Ben has an idea of what is.

"The problem is," Ben assesses. "He's pretty indecisive."

Nick Viall also weighs in.

"I was surprised by the choice," Nick admits. "But I also think, kind of to Ben's point, I mean I get why they picked him."

"Colton, by his own admission, has mentioned that he's got a very limited dating life," Nick says.

He'll clarify his meaning in a moment -- because he definitely doesn't mean that as a jab at Colton.

"I'll be interested to see how that kind of plays out in the season," Nick says.

"I'm not specifically talking about his virginity and things like that," Nick emphasizes.

Colton Underwood's virginity is a game-changer for the franchise, and could really change parts of the show's dynamic.

Nick isn't focused on that, "but just dating in general," he says.

Colton's relative inexperience with dating and rejection could really make things different.

"And to Ben's point," Nick continues. "He does have to be decisive."

"It's very difficult to be the Bachelor and go through that process," Nick explains.

"It's that much more difficult post filming to try to, you know, protect that relationship," Nick shares. "And kind of go through some of the trials and tribulations that kind of come with the show."

Nick repeats: "It'll be curious to see how Colton handles that with limited dating experience in general."

"Everybody takes it very seriously, in terms of their desire to hopefully meet someone and fall in love, because there's a lot of pressure that comes from [being] the Bachelor," Nick adds.

"You feel that pressure going through the process," Nick says. "And that part can eat you alive."

"It destroyed me,” Ben admits about his role on The Bachelor and what followed.

“I was always on edge, I was always waiting for something to erupt and occur that caused havoc in the house," Ben explains. "And I just didn't allow myself to be kind of, like, at peace."

His relationship with Lauren Bushnell famously fell apart. A huge factor was nonstop scrutiny by cameras that followed them even after they became engaged.

"I hope he's able to do that," Ben says. "But it is emotionally taxing."

Nick Viall seems to agree with Ben's take on the experience and process.

"I've never been the same," Nick says.

"I never will be the same," Ben affirms.

Well ... if you wanted to be the Bachelor before this interview, we imagine that you may have second thoughts.

We'll all find out together exactly how well Colton does.

These Bachelor Contestants Just Left the Show… for Each Other!

We're very sorry, Chris Harrison.

But we're calling you out already.

The next time you say that viewers are in for THE MOST DRAMATIC ROSE CEREMONY IN BACHELOR HISTORY, you will be lying.

vietnam contestants

Yes, we can say this with authority right now.

Because THE MOST DRAMATIC ROSE CEREMONY IN BACHELOR HISTORY has already happened.

The Vietnamese version of this long-running hit reality series has gone viral across the entire universe because a pair of contestants - Minh Thu and Truc Nhu - recently decided they did not want to pursue a relationship with star Nguyen Quoc Trung.

Why?

Because they had already found love... with each other!

“I went into this competition to find love,� Thu said to Trung during the aforementioned, mind-boggling, stunning rose ceremony.

She then explained/teased: “I’ve found that love for myself, but it isn’t with you. It’s with someone else.�

And it was someone else Trung knew well.

Upon making her admission, a clearly emotional Thu walked over to Nhu and gave her a long hug, much to the total and complete surprise of the other contestants.

vietnamese contestants

“Come home with me,� Thu said more than once to Nhu, who later approached Trung and said the following:

“I’m sorry. I really wanted to get to know you because you’re someone who made me feel special and I haven’t felt that way in a long time.�

The Bachelor was taken aback, according to those who watched this episode (it's still sitting on our DVR), but managed to respond:

"I want to ask: If you decide this, would you feel regretful? This doesn’t change my decision. I’m not going to give this rose to anyone else. You only get one chance in this life, and you need to take it. Only you, not anyone else.

"I want to let you know that I think you’ll have regret if you continue with what you are about to say.�

she is sorry

This plea, however, fell on deaf ears.

Or, to be more accurate perhaps, it fell on a heart that already been captured by a fellow contestant.

“I know you’ll find someone who really loves you, who understands you, who knows how to take care of you, who can look at you from afar and know how you’re feeling,� she told him.

“I’m sorry."

rose for you

The two women then walked out of the ceremony together.

UPDATE: Wait!

The Asian news website NextShark now reports that Nhu chose to come back to the show after another conversation with Trung.

She reportedly said: “I’ve changed my mind to accept this rose and continue this journey.�

Okay, well. That certainly makes this story a tad bit less interesting.

But it doesn't change the drama of the rose ceremony itself!

Bekah Martinez: Accidentally Pregnant with First Child!

Attention, Bachelor Nation:

Bekah Martinez has a very important announcement to make.

And also a very cute, precious, exciting and special announcement to make.

Bekah Martinez Instagram Picture

In case this opening, or the headline above, didn't make it obvious enough, the announcement is this:

MARTINEZ IS PREGNANT!

The 23-year old former Bachelor suitor confirmed the developing fetus inside her womb in an interview with PureWow, admitting to the outlet that she and boyfriend Grayston Leonard were not planning a pregnancy.

But certain things happen when you have sex without any protection and here they are now.

“I was in disbelief and thought, ‘Is this really happening?’" Martinez confessed in a moment of honesty, saying she learned she's expecting a child just three months into her relationship.

She continued:

“I immediately called Grayston and then went across the street to the Dollar Tree and bought two more pregnancy tests. They, of course, were both positive.”

Bekah Martinez is Pregnant!

Martinez revealed to the world that she was dating Leonard in July, amidst speculation that she was schedule to appear on season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise.

She entered the spotlight earlier this year by becaming one of the youngest contestants to compete on the ABC dating series when she vied for Arie Luyendyk Jr. 's heart during season 22.

Then, in one of the strangest things to ever happen in human history, we learned that Martinez was reported missing while she was on the program because her mother had no clue where she was when she went off to film.

Bekah's mom then watched her daughter on The Bachelor and was like, oh, good, she's safe.

But back to the pregnancy;

“I’ve just come to such a point of accepting it and embracing it and being excited and telling people and all that,” Martinez says in a YouTube video, reiterating:

“I was just in such a state of shock when I found out.”

Bekah Martinez, Boyfriend

The reality TV, who is due in January of 2019, told PureWow that she thinks “pregnancy is better than Bachelor in Paradise," adding a joke as follows:

"Although I’m probably equally as sweaty, exhausted, nauseous, stressed out and emotional, at least I don’t have to worry about finding a man. I already have that one covered."

And what does that man think of the news?

"As it’s gone further, almost every day becomes happier for me,” he says.

“She’s got a little bump now. Her belly button’s starting to push out. It’s like all of these things make it really fun and real. It’s this transforming moment from ‘If I have to, I’ll do it. I’ll be a good dad."

Bekah, who is very good looking, as you can see down below, says she was never certain about love or marriage or relationship.

She has struggled at times with what she wants in that aspect of her life.

Bekah Martinez Shows Some Skin

When it comes to kids, however?

"It’s the one thing that I’ve known with certainty for so long. I’ve gone back and forth on the idea of marriage and relationships, but I’ve always felt sure that I want to be a mom."

Not a wife?

Bekah is in no rush to make anything official, saying;

"It's a horrible idea for us to consider with all of the hormones and the stress we're experiencing. The last thing we need is to consider another commitment on top of what we're already going through...

"Regardless, we're bound together by sharing this little life."

Amanda Stanton Arrested for Domestic Violence: See the Sultry Mug Shot!

Amanda Stanton was arrested very early morning in Las Vegas on a battery domestic violence charge.

Her sort of sultry and likely quite intoxicated mug shot, along with details from the incident, are below...

Amanda Stanton Shines

According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, the 28-year-old former Bachelor suitor and Bachelor in Paradise contestant was taken into custody around 3:15 a.m. due to an alleged altercation between her and her boyfriend, Bobby Jacobs.

Insiders tell TMZ that Stanton was drinking late into the night as part of a co-ed bachelorette party.

The gathering, which included Jacobs, ended up in a hotel room after the group had been out and about for hours beforehand.

Law enforcement tell the aforementioned celebrity gossip website that security arrived at the room at one point in response to a noise complaint.

Amanda Stanton Mug Shot

Jacobs was reportedly talking to a guard when Stanton (who was far from sober) attempted to intervene and shoved her boyfriend in the process.

This is why the security guard called the police.

Stanton was charged with misdemeanor domestic violence and was released later on Monday.

Sources say, however, that she and Jacobs are still together and on perfectly fine terms.

Amanda Stanton, Boyfriend

They both think someone slipped something into Amanda's drink, which prompted her to act in this unusually violent manner.

Stanton has not yet commented on what transpired, but she did share photos on Instagram over the weekend from the Vegas adventure, writing at one point:

"All 3 of us have had Bachelorette parties but only one of us is actually getting married… #pregamingpavlis."

The veteran ABC personality - who appeared on season 20 of The Bachelor and seasons 3 and 4 of Bachelor in Paradise - was in Sin City for a bachelorette party with friends, including fellow Bachelor contestant Lauren Bushnell.

Amanda Stanton Swimsuit

The mother of two actually agreed to marry Josh Murray at one point, only for that romance to end in December of 2016.

She also briefly dated Bachelor in Paradise Season 4 star Robby Hayes, and was mentioned on the program just last night after Hayes made a surprise appearance on Season 5.

Almost immediately, a male contestant warned the women on the island that Hayes had supposedly cheated in Stanton, an allegation he has denied.

As an actress, Stanton has appeared in The Cheetah Girls 2 and Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh.

As a love interest of Jacobs, she started dating her current beau after he slid into her direct messages, saying the following to Us Weekly two months ago:

"We don’t really have a great story."

"I wish we had a more exciting story. We were saying that we should just say we met at the dog park or something...

"I guess it’s pretty normal these days. It just is funny to say."

UPDATE: Stanton has now spoken out on the arrest.

The Bachelor Will Do Fantasy Suites Differently for Virgin Colton Underwood!

The Bachelor Nation knows that Colton Underwood is the next Bachelor, and fans have some questions and concerns.

Chris Harrison has come forward to address at least some of those worries. He promises that fans will have a good time.

He shares how the show plans to tackle Colton's virginity -- and how this season's Fantasy Suites will be very special.

Colton Confessional

At the New York premiere of A Simple Favor on Monday. September, 10, Chris Harrison told Entertainment Tonight about why they picked Colton.

"No matter what we say, if we said Jason, if we said Blake, it doesn't matter," Chris admits. "There's going to be backlash, that's the way social media works these days."

In case you're wondering why so many celebs keep saying problematic stuff, it's that exact attitude and an inability to distinguish between trolls and actual feedback.

"Colton's going to be good TV, and that is the reason we chose him," Chris explains bluntly. 

That sounds very honest.

Colton Underwood Works Out Shirtless

Chris then cracks a joke that will honestly sell more viewers on Colton than anything else: "He probably won't have his shirt on after night one, so it's going to be a good season."

Chris does admit that the fans aren't sure if Colton is ready for marriage.

And, as Chris says, "that's the whole point of the show."

Looking for candidates for marriage is the whole point of The Bachelor franchise. Finding out if Colton is ready for it is the point of this season, we guess.

"Maybe at the end of it, he's not, and it's a complete disaster," Chris says. "That's the way it goes, that's life"

Chris does address that the Fantasy Suite is going to be a little more intriguing since Colton has never banged before.

"Well, this year, because I know he's the Bachelor, I brought in props," Chris jokes.

His joke continues: "So there's going to be a big presentation of what happens in the fantasy suite [with] 3D models."

That sounds painfully awkward. Fortunately, to make sure that we know (we hope) that this is a joke, Chris continues.

"It really gets interesting," Chris says. "And I'm going to bring my son in as well, who is a teenager, so I can knock out the talk."

If you haven't had the talk with your teen yet, they already got it from their friends. But, again, Chris is joking. We hope.

Chris does take a slightly more serious tone as he discusses the implications of Colton Underwood's virginity.

"No, but it's part of the storyline, the fact that Colton's a virgin, clearly," Chris affirms.

"How will the women react to that?" Chris asks rhetorically. "How is he going to handle that?"

That's a good question. And, of course, we already got a taste of that narrative after the episode aired in which Colton confessed to Becca.

"It's something that he's obviously dealt with his entire life," Chris reminds viewers. "And he got emotional about it."

Chris mentions how Colton spoke "about when he was in the NFL and having to fake it."

Actual locker room talk, for Colton, involved pretending that he'd had sexual experiences that he had not.

"So, we are going to deal with that," Chris says. "We'll dive into that."

We're sure that they will.

Colton Underwood and His Dog

So we suppose that Chris Harrison's pitch for Colton's season is: Come for the shirtless eye candy, stay for the virginity drama.

Will it work?

For the network, it's a gamble. Especially if someone comes forward and claims that Colton has been lying about his virgin status.

Fans have already been warned that Colton is a selfish jerk who may be more interested in fame than finding love or marriage.

Some think that, after Arie, the network should have gone with the most trustworthy, non-controversial pick that they could.

Others say that people are simply being unfair to Colton. We'll all find out together.

Aly Raisman Warns Bachelor Nation: Colton Underwood is a D–k!

Right after Labor Day, Colton Underwood was confirmed as the next Bachelor.

Some fans are very excited, but other members of the Bachelor Nation are still a little wary of him.

According to what his ex, famed Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, wrote in her book, this next season of The Bachelor could be worse than Arie's. ...

Colton Underwood and Aly Raisman

While Aly Raisman did not call out Colton by name in her book, FierceRadar Online reports that she describes an unhappy encounter with a man who could only be the next Bachelor.

"A professional athlete I’d been talking to for a while had invited me to visit him and watch one of his games," Aly wrote.

Aly said that she had taken him up on his invitation despite the travel distance because "I figured I could use a distraction."

"Saturday went well," she shared, speaking of the day before the game. "The guy was attentive and fun, and we seemed to be having a good time."

Aly reveals: "But when I met him Sunday after his game, he had turned into a completely different person."

"We were in his car when I made a move to change the radio station," she says.

This, apparently, is when things really went south.

"‘Don’t touch the music,’ he snapped," Aly reports.

"I thought he was joking," Aly explains. "So I continued to reach for the stereo buttons."

"‘I’m not kidding — don’t touch it,’ he said sharply," she narrates.

According to her, this handsome gentleman had some very ugly reasoning for insisting that he control the radio.

She reports that he told her: "‘I just played a game, and you just sat and watched. You haven’t done anything today.'"

"'So we’ re going to listen to this sports radio station,'" she says that he said. "'I want to hear what they say about me.’"

Yikes.

"I sat silently for the rest of the car ride," Aly reveals. "I couldn’t wait to get out."

We can imagine.

"I felt embarrassed," after the incident, Aly admits.

"But," she adds, she felt "also angry that I had traveled to see someone who treated me so disrespectfully."

No one has the right to speak to anyone in the way that she describes. Apparently, the rest of the day didn't really improve upon her experience.

"He was glued to his phone and ignored me as we sat and ate dinner," she reveals.

Phone use is a normal part of life, but if someone flies out to see you for a weekend, maybe be less of a jerk.

"When I left for the airport," Aly shared. "He hardly said good-bye."

Colton Underwood Works Out Shirtless

Speaking of this man -- whom many believe to have been Colton -- reminds us of Raven Gates' words of warning.

"I just don’t think his intentions are good,” Raven told Tia Booth on Bachelor in Paradise.

“First of all, Colton’s past dating history has been the It Girl," Raven reasoned. "You’re the It Girl from your season, and he reached out to you."

"And then he went on Becca’s season, and now he’s back with you," Raven pointed out. "All of his actions have said something different…"

Raven implored Tia: "You have to really see the true person that Colton is."

Colton Underwood and Tia Booth: No Hard Feelings

That's a fair point. People might have a hard time seeing past Colton Underwood's virginity and his smile and his general handsomeness.

Just because a guy's clearly not just out to get in your pants doesn't mean that he doesn't have an agenda.

If Raven is right, then Colton just gravitates towards the most popular girl around and uses her like an accessory to promote himself.

If Aly was really talking about Colton in her book, then it sounds like he has some major entitlement issues and can be a selfish jerk sometimes.

Besides, if the Bachelor Nation is right about Colton not really being a virgin, then he might also be a huge liar.

What are we getting ourselves into with this next season?

Jason Tartick on Colton Underwood as The Bachelor: Is He a Fan?

On Tuesday, Colton Underwood was confirmed as the next Bachelor

Some fans are absolutely thrilled and would love a shot at dating this hunk. Others favored other frontrunners ... frontrunners like Jason Tartick.

Jason is sharing how he really feels about Colton being selected for this coveted role.

Colton Underwood and Jason Tartick

Jason Tartick took to Instagram to reveal his thoughts about Colton becoming the next leading man on The Bachelor.

"To have great friends you have to be a great friend," Jason's post begins.

Jason's post continues: '@coltonunderwood is a class act, generous man, and a hell of friend."

"So happy for you brotha!" Jason declares.

Jason makes his enthusiasm clear, concluding with: "Let the Bachelor Party Planning commence!"

That is not all that Jason had to say on the subject, however.

In an interview with E!, Jason Tartick expresses his thoughts on Colton's big win.

"Colton is like a brother to me," Jason says.

He says that they bonded on The Bachelorette, sharing: "We were in the limo night one and we hit it off."

"He's just a really good guy and we became really good friends," Jason gushes.

"We supported each other through the journey," Jason reveals. "And it's not always the easiest journey."

He says that the two of them forged a powerful friendship and remain close "still to this day."

Jason is over the moon that he gets to watch his buddy try to find love.

"I'm very happy for him and his journey to find happiness," Jason says.

It sounds like he'll be tuning in for sure.

Jason is excited, saying: "I think he's going to do a great job as the Bachelor."

That said, Jason would have loved to be the leading man himself.

"This was an opportunity I would've liked to have had," Jason admits.

He says that he'd leap at the chance "simply because I wasn't sure that it would work the first time around."

"But," he notes. "I did find love in a place I really wasn't certain I could."

The Bachelorette made him realize that this format could lead to real romance. Maybe he'll get his chance to be the leading man ... some day.

Jason sounds almost wistful as he talks about what could have been.

"I was so open to giving The Bachelor an opportunity [for me] to find that person," he admits.

He says: "I thought that it would put me in the best position to find my person, my one."

Well, he's immensely popular, so it sounds like he might get his wish in the future.

If not, we're sure that he has a great chance of finding love off-screen, too.

Especially since he has such a great, healthy attitude about his buddy Colton getting this coveted title. Good for them both, you know?

Colton Underwood Addresses Haters: You Just Don’t Get It…

Colton Underwood has never entered a woman.

But the brand new Bachelor has now entered the world of reality TV show fandom...

... and he's getting a first-hand look at how ugly it can be.

Colton

Earlier this week, ABC confirmed that Underwood would anchor the 23rd installment of this beloved franchise.

The decision was expected, yet it still landed with a giant thud in the eyes of many long-time viewers.

That guy, really?!? many residents of Bachelor Nation said in response.

Words such as "boring" and "vanilla" and "holy Hell, does he lack any ounce of charisma?!?" were thrown around by critics of the move online.

Underwood, it now seems, is aware of the response his selection generated.

This is 2018. He's obviously on the Internet and using social media and is trying to keep perspective on why some folks may be less than enthralled over watching his journey next year.

In the end, he seems to think, they are simply ignorant.

colton clapback

On Thursday morning, Colton Tweeted the following:

People hate what they don’t understand & try to destroy it. Only try to keep yourself clear and don’t allow that destructive force to spoil something that to you is so simple, natural & beautiful.

Was he referring to the criticism that has come his way in the last 48 hours or so? It's very safe to understand.

A lot of people out there are mocking his choice to remain a virgin, with some even thinking he's deep in the sexual closet.

We aren't about to go there of course. We have no idea what Colton's life has really been like and we are not about to judge the way he is choosing to live it.

Colton Underwood on GMA

All we know at the moment is that Underwood is saying all the right things.

That is, all the same things that Bachelors before him have also said.

"That’s what I’m looking forward to the most, is getting engaged and then getting married shortly after that," Underwood told Michael Strahan on Good Morning America this past Tuesday.

He added that he wants to marry a "good, passionate" person -- and it doesn't even matter if she's into sports.

Colton and Becca

Will it matter if she's done the horizonal hula before?

If she's gotten down and dirty in bed?

If she's done the reverse cowgirl or taken it doggy style or plowed more than one guy in a week or something?

We don't think so.

Underwood has given no indication that the sexual proclivities or history of his potential fiancee will play any role in whether or not she can win him over.

Colton also doesn't want to imply that he wouldn't be done for some hand relief or crotch fondling next season.

“Being a virgin doesn’t mean you can’t have a good time,” he has told People Magazine. “It doesn’t mean you can’t be passionate and romantic and sexual still in your relationship.
