In case you just arrived on planet Earth today, first of all, welcome. Second of all, there's a man by the name of Colton Underwood who stars in the dating show The Bachelor, and he's a virgin. Although Colton is far from the first virgin we've ever seen on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, that aspect of his life has been seriously amped up this season. As if we could ever forget, ABC reminded us of his virginity approximately 1,000 times during Fantasy Suite week, and the episode was . . . interesting.
Colton's first — and only — overnight date was with Tayshia Adams. The two have broken boundaries together, from bungee jumping to skydiving, regardless of their joint fear of heights. So when it came time to take yet another step together, in the bedroom department, Tayshia seemed ready.
"Intimacy's a really big deal for me. It's something that I only share with someone I truly love, and I am in love with Colton," Tayshia said. When the couple woke up together the next morning, we couldn't help but wonder (OK, we were dying to know) what happened between them. The beaming smiles on their faces might have left viewers thinking one thing, but it was the exact opposite.
It seemed like Tayshia was ready to have sex with Colton, but he wasn't ready for that step with her. "We didn't have, like, the physical intimacy that I wanted," she told the camera the following morning, noting she picked up on how nervous he seemed to be.
Colton admitted to the camera that he was not in love, but falling in love, with Tayshia; however, he couldn't stop thinking about his relationships with Cassie Randolph and Hannah Godwin. It looks like he's sticking to his guns and truly waiting for the right woman.
Up to this date, we know that Colton is still a virgin. And after an unbelievably sad ending to his Fantasy Suite date with Cassie, it might take him a while longer to be comfortable enough to get there.
