Coy about belated Fantasy Suite date with Cassie Randolph
The Fantasy Suite dates are a rite of passage for any relationship heading toward an engagement on the ABC dating show. After Cassie agreed to give Colton another chance, they did get a Fantasy Suite date.
As viewers know, the Fantasy Suite is off-limits for cameras. It’s a time for the lead and the contestant to “get to know each other better,” including sleeping together if they choose.
Rarely are the intimate details known about what happened in the Fantasy Suite. In fact, Colton Underwood dedicated a whole chapter in his memoir, The First Time: Finding Myself and Looking for Love on Reality TV to the date. But according to Page Six, he only wrote “None of your business” in that chapter.
In one-on-one interviews after the fact, Underwood implied that he was intimate with Cassie Randolph.
The two dated for almost two years after the show, including living together during quarantine.
Why Colton Underwood is glad he didn’t lose virginity on The Bachelor
Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph publicly had a ‘mutual’ break-up in early 2020. However, things between them hit a sour note a few months later when Randolph filed a restraining order against Underwood. In the accompanying police report, she accused her former beau of stalking her. The restraining order was dropped two months later.
In April of 2021, the former Bachelor announced on Good Morning America that he’s gay. He’s currently promoting his Netflix docuseries Coming Out Colton. The show follows him as he navigates coming out to his family and friends. Furthermore, he addresses his break-up with Cassie.
One of the women vying for his affection on Season 23, Onyeka Ehie, appears in the Netflix series. E! Online reports that the two have a deep discussion over why he sent Ehie home. According to the outlet, Underwood confesses to being “intimidated” by her.
The former pro football player also admits to feeling relieved that he didn’t have Fantasy Suite dates with all of final three women, as typical on the franchise.
He expresses gratitude that he didn’t lose his virginity on the show. It was a line he didn’t want to cross.
“I knew I was attracted to men but I felt like if I lose my virginity in the fantasy suite, is it going to please me enough to keep me wanting to be straight?” – Colton Underwood, Coming Out Colton.
