Until he gets engaged, Colton Underwood's season of The Bachelor isn't truly over. While the show broke tradition this year after contestant Cassie Randolph left the show because she wasn't ready to get engaged and returned for After The Final Rose to reveal that the two are now dating. The whole point was to allow the couple could take things slow, but Underwood is already hinting that engagement isn't far off.
The optics of the final episode were already sus since it was basically Colton not taking Cassie's "no" for an answer. But apparently he's not done chasing, telling Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet of the 54th Academy of Country Music Awards that their engagement is nigh.
“Honestly, if I was a betting man I would say it would happen within the next year,” he told ET. "We’re enjoying it, we’re having fun. I think, right now, at this point in our relationship, we’re...trying to be as normal as possible. But we’ve talked about our engagement and taking the next step in our relationship and [decided to take it] one thing at a time."
After their love was made public, Cassie told the world that Colton showed her "the purest, strongest love that any girl could ask for" on Instagram, and told People that they were going at their own pace.
"Colton never put pressure on me," she explained. “I think that’s why we’re still here today, because we took it at our own pace. We didn’t want to rush something that was going to be forever."
Meanwhile, Colton is checking his watch.
