Guys, I'm not sure if you've heard, but Colton Underwood
is - *pauses to look over both shoulders for Chris Harrison
* - a virgin. That's right. He's a big macho football player who's also a virgin. Can you believe?!
Ok, Ok - do I actually think Colton, 26, admitting he's never had sex before while appearing on national TV during his stint on Becca Kufrin's season of The Bachelorette
is something to freak out about? No. In fact, I feel quite the opposite, even if it felt a little like a last-minute ploy to bond with Becca so she'd keep him in the competition. Emotionally manipulative? Maybe. But brave nonetheless? Fine, sure.
I don't think I need to explain all the gender norms associated with being a former football player in the NFL that makes his being a virgin - especially one who's had a number of high-profile relationships - so notable.
