The Bachelor Fans Are Not Happy About the Selection of Colton Underwood

What about Jason? Blake? Grocery Joe? Anyone!

Liam Mathews

On Tuesday, ABC announced that the star of the next season of The Bachelor will be Colton Underwood, a virginal 26-year-old former NFL player who came in fourth on Becca Kufrin's season of The Bachelorette and then got entangled in a very unpopular storyline on Bachelor in Paradise where Tia Booth tried in vain to force him to fall in love with her for most of the season. Watching them bicker and cry for hours on end was tedious and unlikeable television. But for some reason the franchise is all in on Colton, much to the dismay of the fanbase, who is very tired of him. Fans would have preferred other guys from Becca's season like Jason Tartick or Blake Horstmann, and took to Twitter to express their displeasure.

Or they just wanted anyone but Colton.

There was some support for Colton, but it was mostly coming from one person. Look, this is almost the same tweet from two accounts.

Seriously, these were the only positive tweets I could find.

But I'm still going to watch, and you are too. Don't say you won't.

The Bachelor Season 23 will premiere in January.
