ABC has confirmed that former NFL player, Colton Underwood will be the next ‘Bachelor.’ After teasing fans soon after ‘The Bachelorette’ ended, the network gave its proverbial flower to the former NFL player via Twitter a day after Labor Day.

If you recall, the 26-year-old competed on Season 14 of ‘The Bachelorette’ with Becca Kufrin, and the spin-off ‘Bachelor in Paradise.’ Not to mention, his former fling with past contestant Tia Booth who he continued to date throughout, but his much-discussed virginity, proved to be stumbling blocks in their love story.

‘Paradise,’ which aired this summer, reunited Underwood and Booth, before both went their separate ways after he revealed he couldn’t see the relationship going long-term.

“I just wanted us to work so bad, and it’s just not there,” Underwood said on the episode. “You deserve somebody that’s going to be crazy about you every single day.”

Now he is ready to kick off his journey as the new Bachelor and hopefully find love. He appeared on ‘Good Morning America’ to promote the new season with host Michael Strahan and receive advice from former contestants.

Underwood says that he and Booth are really good friends now and finally on the same page. He hopes that the “third time’s a charm” saying holds true for him. He hopes to find love because he is looking forward to “being engaged and then getting married shortly after that.” Regarding his past, he has no regrets.

 “One thing I took pride in on both seasons was being true to who I am,” Underwood said. “It took all of that to get to where I’m at now and know who I am as a person and know what I want in a life partner.”

Even though other fans were rooting for other contestants from Kufrin’s season, like Blake Horstmann and Jason Tartick, to assume the role, he still received love from many fans. He was congratulated on social media by many members from Bachelor Nation, including former Bachelor Nick Viall and his ex, Booth.

We can’t wait to see all the ladies compete for roses from Underwood. Read the full story from the Huffington Post here.
