Colton Underwood is opening up about his elimination after the hometown dates, which occurred right after Tia Booth admitted to Becca Kufrin she still had feelings for him.
“I was actually blindsided. I was not expecting that at all. I thought, ‘I’m glad the Tia thing is in the past’ because I thought it was in the past,” Colton tells Ben Higgins and Ashley Iaconetti’s podcast later on Monday.
“After we left that spa date, all three of us spent time talking to one another and we got it all out there and we were all one the same page and moving forward with it, so it was a little shocking when I heard she came back to talk to Becca.”
“I don’t know if we can completely say my future with Becca was ended 100 percent on Tia. I’m sure that was a heavy portion of why my future with Becca was ended, so yeah, of course I was sad,” he continues. “I was disappointed, I was frustrated, I was pissed off. I had every emotion going through me at that time and I didn’t know how to process it. I was speechless. I had nothing to say because I was so caught off guard.”
Season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise with Colton and Tia premieres on August 7th.
