Colton Underwood Tries to Leave ‘The Bachelor’ in the Dramatic First Season 23 Trailer
It’s going to be a dramatic season for Colton Underwood. In the first trailer for season 23 of The Bachelor, we see the former NFL star crying, admitting he’s scared, and frustratedly trying to leave the show.
The trailer starts off with all of the women who will be vying for Underwood’s affection — three of whom Underwood has already met — watching him rinse off in an outdoor beach shower. “Colton looks so hot, I plan on rubbing oil all over his body,” one contestant says. Another screams, “He is literally like a chiseled god to me.”
From there, Underwood is shown speaking with host Chris Harrison about a personal detail that looks to be a big part of the season — his virginity. “I am a virgin,” Underwood says. “But that’s just a small part of who I am. I’m here to fall in love, so hopefully, by the end of this, I’m down on one knee.” The topic comes up again as many of the contestants bring up Underwood’s virginity in their confessionals.
Of course, it wouldn’t be The Bachelor without tears, and the trailer shows a lot of them. At one point, Underwood says through sobs that he’s scared and tired of being rejected, as we hear one contestant’s voiceover saying that she can’t accept a proposal. By the end of the trailer, the former NFL player is ready to be “done” with the show. He even jumps over a fence in order to get away from the cameras as Harrison calls after him.
Watch all the drama go down for yourself when The Bachelor season 23 premieres on Monday, January 7, 2019, on ABC.
