Gasp! Colton Underwood Returned Cassie Randolph’s Engagement Ring
Just when we thought there was a Bachelor engagement in our near future (cough, Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph, cough), the couple went where no successful pairing has gone before and returned their Neil Lane engagement ring.
It all started last month when the couple appeared on an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! At the end of the segment, the late-night host surprised them with a double halo engagement ring from Lane for whenever the time is right. *Hint, hint*
Since then, the 23-year-old speech pathologist wore a “Mrs. Underwood” jersey and temporarily vacated her hometown of Huntington Beach, California, so she could be closer to her 26-year-old boyfriend. Still, no engagement.
So, why hasn’t Underwood gotten down on one knee? According to this brand-new teaser for E!’s new show Ladygang, there’s a reason for the stalled proposal: Underwood returned the ring.
“I was told that I could trade it in,” he says in the clip. “I didn’t order it!”
Of course, there’s a good excuse for the returned purchase gift. Underwood goes on to explain that he’s hoping to trade it for something that Randolph will like more, adding, “Cass wants a gold, simple band, with an oval-cut [stone].”
The former NFL player met Randolph on season 23 of The Bachelor. Although she originally broke up with him, that all changed when Underwood sent home the remaining women—Hannah G. and Tayshia—and asked Randolph to be his girlfriend.
On the bright side, at least the engagement conversation is on the table.
