The newest Bachelor is out of the bag, and ABC has selected Colton Underwood for season 23. The news was announced during Underwood’s September 4 appearance on Good Morning America.
“I’m very excited,” Underwood said. “Third time’s the charm, that’s what they say. That’s what I’m hoping for.”
The former pro-football player turned philanthropist, 26, was first introduced to Bachelor Nation on Becca Kufrin’s season, where he came in third place. He later appeared on Bachelor in Paradise, but his relationship there with Tia Booth fizzled.
Bachelor season 23 will premiere in January 2019.
