Colton Underwood Is Completely Unrecognizable in Epic Throwback Pic

Just because he dated 30 women at the same time doesn’t mean Colton Underwood was always a hunky bachelor.

Yesterday, the 26-year-old star posted a side-by-side photo on Instagram that is putting Jennifer Garner’s ten-year challenge to shame. The pic features teenage Underwood wearing an oversize suit at what appears to be prom alongside a current photo of The Bachelor star, and damn, puberty hit him hard.

He captioned the post, “It’s crazy what a tailor and some confidence can do for a person.”

Underwood first stole America’s heart when he appeared on Becca Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette. After gaining recognition for candidly admitting that he’s a virgin, he starred on Bachelor in Paradise, where he infamously dumped Tia before becoming the next Bachelor.

Of course, this season has been jam-packed with drama. Not only is Underwood dealing with the battle of the beauty queens (cough, Hannah B. and Caelynn, cough), but he’s also getting to know another contestant named Demi, who doesn’t know when to stop.

Although next week’s episode of The Bachelor teases an intimacy altercation between Underwood and Elyse, Chris Harrison previously revealed the 26-year-old’s “v-card is still intact”…at least for now.

On the bright side, at least he didn’t peak in high school. The Bachelor returns to ABC next Monday, February 4, at 8 p.m.
