Well, it’s finally here. Can’t say I ever thought Colton Underwood would be on the podcast, but he is today for podcast #195. And I’m glad he is. It’s a loooong discussion (over 2 hrs), that goes in chronological order of his appearances in the franchise. From Becca’s season, to BIP 5, to his “Bachelor” season, then post-show – we cover it all. I’ve had many criticisms of Colton over the years, and he addressed all of them, which is all I ask for in a guest. Colton is definitely a lightning rod in the franchise as people definitely feel strongly one way or the other about him. I don’t expect people who already don’t like him to do a 180 after this podcast. However, if you actually listen to all 2 hours and not skim through or just care about tea spilling, if you take the time to listen to every question I ask and every answer he gives, I can’t see how anyone who absolutely did not like him coming in, doesn’t at least see a side to him that maybe you were unaware of. I know I did. He’s a straight up guy, didn’t dodge any questions, and even fills us in on some stuff that I’m guessing a lot of you didn’t know. It’s a fascinating conversation really that I hope you all enjoy. As always, if you’d like to respond to the interview, please include Colton’s Twitter handle (@colton) in your replies. Thanks again to Colton for coming on. Enjoy everyone and let me know what you think…

(SPOILERS) I briefly start out by talking about this past Tuesday’s column which has mini spoilers. Then Colton joins me and we go through his journey with the franchise in chronological order. We start with his time on Becca’s season, then “Bachelor in Paradise” season 5, his season of the “Bachelor, and everything that’s happened with him post-show. Tons of good stories, some tea, and Colton addresses every criticism I had about him over the last couple years. A lot to cover in this interesting, insightful, and at times revealing podcast that goes a little over 2 hrs long. It’s one you don’t want to miss.

Colton was very brave to go on Steve’s podcast. This is the first podcast that has made headlines that I know of. Kudos to Colton and Steve for their honesty. Very interesting interview. I hope Colton doesn’t suffer anymore from this franchise.

Excellent interview and thanks to Colton for being SO open and detailed. Colton answered every single question. Not just with yes or no, but with detailed explanations of what he was thinking or feeling. Colton is way too honest and genuine for this franchise, but that is exactly why he was such a great bachelor! I always really liked Colton, but now have an even greater respect and appreciation for him, and what he and Tia and Cassie and the others went through. And great job RealitySteve, you covered all the hot questions and more. Interesting and informative interview, absolutely recommended!
