ABC announces new Bachelor

(ABC) – Who is the next Bachelor? Tuesday, Good Morning America made it official: Colton Underwood is the next Bachelor 2019.

Underwood burst onto the scene during season 14 of The Bachelorette, and his good looks, love for dogs and vulnerability charmed not only Bachelorette Becca Kufrin, but all of Bachelor Nation. This former NFL player made a play for Becca’s heart but was sadly sent home after professing he had fallen in love.

Now, Underwood is back and ready to capture hearts across America yet again when he returns for another shot at love as the new Bachelor as the star of the 23rd season of ABC’s hit romance reality series The Bachelor, returning to ABC in January 2019.

When Underwood showed up to the beaches of Mexico this summer on Bachelor in Paradise, he was hopeful. While he may not have found love, he didn’t leave empty-handed. He found closure with former flame Becca Kufrin; clarity with Bachelor Nation favorite Tia Booth; and above all, an unwavering desire to find the woman of his dreams. After a summer of growth and a new perspective on what he is looking for, he is more than ready for this next chapter.

Underwood was born in Indianapolis and grew up in the small town of Washington, Illinois. He is part of a loving, blended family with his seven siblings, father and stepmother, and mother and stepfather. It was his close relationship to his family that sparked his idea to start the Legacy Foundation, a charity for cystic fibrosis, something that his 6-year-old cousin Harper was diagnosed with as a baby.
