Reality star moves on after harsh split from Cassie Randolph
Less than one year after coming out as gay, Colton Underwood announced that he’s engaged to a man. While many Bachelor Nation fans are happy for the reality star, others can’t forget how Underwood’s relationship with Cassie Randolph ended.
When the contestant eliminated herself on The Bachelor, Colton famously jumped a fence, intending to quit the show. The two reconciled after Underwood begged for a second chance.
While they didn’t get engaged per the show standard, the couple did date for a little under two years. Their breakup originally seemed amicable. However, a few months later, Randolph filed for a restraining order against her ex. Additionally, she filed a police report claiming Underwood stalked her. Among her allegations, she claimed that he put a tracking device on her car.
She dropped the police report and the restraining order shortly afterward, amid rumors of a settlement between the two. Neither has shared specific details of the incident.
Colton Underwood did vaguely address his behavior on his Netflix series Coming Out Colton. The streaming service documented the former Bachelor star coming out to his friends and family.
Underwood will compete on the upcoming CBS show Beyond the Edge.
