The Bachelorette franchise is synonymous with drama. On Monday's episode of the Bachelorette, we learn that a contestant on Becca's season of the Bachelorette has a secret that he's been waiting to tell her.
The person that we're talking about is Colton Underwood. Yes, he's the same contestant that we wrote about last week, who's... let's face it.. incredibly dreamy.
On Monday's episode, Colton had a secret brewing that he needed to reveal to Becca. Colton's secret was that he had previously dated someone that was formerly on the Bachelor... and she's also friends with Becca.
Colton dated Tia Booth. Yes, Tia Booth from Arie's boring season of the Bachelor. Yes, Tia Booth, the one that stood up for Becca on The Women Tell All special from last season of The Bachelor. Yes, Colton Underwood dated gorgeous southern belle, Tia.
Tia was a frontrunner on last season of The Bachelor and we can definitely see why. She's smart, successful and beautiful beyond words.
Colton admits that before he applied for the show, he dated Tia in January 2018. He says that they spent "one weekend together" and nothing more came out of it.
It's obvious that Becca was shaken by the surprising secret. Becca responded to Colton by saying, "I don't know how I feel about it. It makes me feel sick." She continues, "I'm very attracted to you. It's a tricky situation. It puts me in a very strange position."
Now, Becca's wondering what we're all wondering... Did Colton apply for the show in hopes that Tia would be the Bachelorette? Is he really here for her?
In her private interviews, Becca expresses that she's worried about the trust between them and if he's really here for her or if he had hoped for Tia all along. This is also the second "celebrity" that Colton has dated recently. It definitely makes us question his intentions.
At the end of the episode, Becca decides to give Colton a rose, keeping him around for another week.
In the preview for next week, Becca brings Tia and some of her other friends from The Bachelor to surprise the guys. It looks like Colton will have to address the Tia situation head-on during next week's episode.
