Colton Underwood Reveals Why He’s a Virgin on ‘The Bachelor’ Premiere: Watch Our Recap

Did you know Colton Underwood is a virgin? If you didn’t — somehow — the message came through loud and clear during The Bachelor premiere.

“It was a conscious decision at first then I really started diving deep into my professional football career and my personal life took a backseat,” the NFL star, 26, explained in the Monday, January 7, episode. “It’s not like I’m going to lose it on a one-night stand … it’s just very important to me.”
