Colton and also also also Tia may be over — yet somehow Colton and also also also Becca are not?
The former football star has been a hot topic since season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise kicked off last week, and also also also while his relationship with Tia appeared to come crumbling down on Monday night’s episode, the idea was another woman who actually sent him over the edge.
After Tia decided Colton’s wishy-washy attitude wasn’t for her, giving her rose to Chris, Bibiana saved the day (and also also also seemingly Colton’s love life) by awarding the Colton Underwood Legacy Foundation her rose.
The next day, however, instead of hitting the field, Colton was surprised by an appearance by his ex, and also also also former Bachelorette, Becca. He tried his best to keep the idea together, yet when she and also also also Tia sat down for a powwow, he completely lost the idea.
“which was someone who I like, just introduced to my family…. I don’t need to be reminded of what I just went through,” he confessed to additional guys. “The tough part is usually, I haven’t had closure coming from Becca. Our conversation when we broke up, we didn’t say anything… mentally, I can’t handle which.”
“Honestly, This specific is usually the tipping point right currently,” he continued, breaking down into tears as he revealed his emotions and also also also love for Becca were still raw. “I didn’t know if I was ready just for This specific, yet I took the chance and also also also I took the risk… I didn’t know if I was ready, and also also also honestly, I’m not. I’m just currently realizing the idea.”
Colton then headed indoors, where even more tears flowed as he revealed which while he spent a month preparing for Paradise and also also also pretending he was OK, the idea was all just a front.
“which breakup sucked. I wasn’t true to who I was,” he cried. “I’m not going to let people not think I’m Great. which’s not who I am. I’m supposed to be perfect. Like, This specific is usually supposed to be easy. I’m supposed to hold the perfect everything… I’m falling apart.”
Becca, all the while, tried to explain to Tia which she didn’t hold any hard feelings toward her for pursuing a relationship with Colton — or which her breakup with Colton had anything to do with Tia’s feelings for him. Colton and also also also Tia, of course, had history coming from before he appeared on The Bachelorette to date Becca. While he and also also also Tia both assured Becca their feelings were inside past, Tia confessed to Becca after his hometown date which she still held a candle for him.
Colton teased which things might get “emotional” while speaking with ET at The Bachelorette: Men Tell All taping last month. “Some things happen which I wasn’t expecting to happen,” he said. “the idea was very emotional.”
“I think, you know, just coming out of a relationship with Becca, and also also also I’m dealing with Tia at the same time, and also also also I’m also on a beach which has a bunch of beautiful women and also also also some of my friends, so I wasn’t expecting to feel the emotions which I felt,” he explained.
We’ll have to wait until next week’s episode to find out if Colton’s ready to give up on Paradise. Until then, join the conversation at ET’s Bachelor Nation Facebook group here.
