Colton Underwood, who previously appeared on Becca Kufrin's cycle of "The Bachelorette" and most recently on "Bachelor in Paradise", is the next lucky man looking for love on the long-running reality series.

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.

"I'm very excited", Underwood told host Michael Strahan.

Cape Town - American broadcast network ABC have announced that 26-year-old virgin, Colton Underwood will be the next star of The Bachelor.




Announced this morning on Good Morning America, the man who had been rumored for weeks to take the role, Colton, will begin is journey in dating 25 women to find his ideal one. I think part of me wanted this to work so bad. He was sent home and came into this summer's Bachelor in Paradise still wounded and conflicted about commitment.

Underwood first appeared on Season 14 of The Bachelorette, where he competed for Becca Kufrin's heart (and notably revealed to her that he is still a virgin). I wasn't true to who I was, and I feel like people think I'm less of a man because of that. Subsequently, an "After the Final Rose" episode was tacked onto the season to allow viewers-and the show's contestants-to process their feelings, and an Internet firestorm erupted.

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

Underwood, a former National Football League player, also previously dated Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman before appearing on "The Bachelorette". "That's what I'm hoping for!" Tia didn't waste any time congratulating Colton!
