With Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor fast approaching, I can’t stop thinking about whether his journey to find love will end in an engagement or (more likely) an engagement followed by a breakup.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for the 26-year-old virgin finding “the one,” but I’ve invested in far too many Bachelor Nation relationships to delude myself into thinking that the odds are in his favor. While some were expected breakups—like Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi or Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell—others shook me to the core (dramatic, I know)—like Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell or Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth. (Too soon?)
So, is Underwood destined for failure? If not, then what are his chances of being the exception to the rule? Here’s what he’s up against.
