Colton Underwood Breaks Up with Tia Booth on 'Bachelor in Paradise'

ICYMI, Underwood first appeared on Becca Kufrin's season of The Bachelorette in spring 2018, where he poignantly confessed he was a virgin.

Season 23 of The Bachelor will debut at midseason on ABC, while Bachelor in Paradise's fifth season wraps Tuesday, Sept. 11, at 8/7c.

He said: 'I'm very excited. "So, I made up a lot of lies, and I hid it and I was ashamed of it".

On Tuesday, ABC announced that the star of the next season of The Bachelor will be Colton Underwood, a virginal 26-year-old former National Football League player who came in fourth on Becca Kufrin's season of The Bachelorette and then got entangled in a very unpopular storyline on Bachelor in Paradise where Tia Booth tried in vain to force him to fall in love with her for most of the season.

"Third time is the charm".

Following their split, Colton took to Instagram with nothing but kind words for his ex. "Thank you for teaching me even more about myself, and most importantly, for your friendship that I know will continue far beyond Paradise", Colton wrote.

One of the most seemingly solid couples on "Bachelor in Paradise" is falling apart.

One person said: 'I really hope the only reason ABC didn't choose Jason Tartick as the next Bachelor is because he already found someone and not because they thought we'd all want to see Colton be indecisive for another 2 months'.

"That's what I'm looking for ... being engaged and then getting married shortly after that", Underwood said, per People.

Tia also confirmed via Twitter that she would not be a contestant on Colton's season of The Bachelor. He got media attention when he revealed he was a virgin and had previously dated gymnast Aly Raisman.

When he came clean to Tia about his feelings, they had a very emotional break up, with both deciding to leave Paradise in the aftermath.
