Cassie Randolph Upset with Chris Harrison Interview on ‘The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons – Ever!’

“Believe it or not, there is so much more to me than just my past relationship.” Cassie Randolph says her interview with Chris Harrison focused too much on her breakup with Colton Underwood and left out most of their conversation.

Cassie Randolph is not happy with The Bachelor.

Randolph went on The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons – Ever!  Monday night for an interview with host Chris Harrison to catch up on her life post-Bachelor. After the interview aired, Randolph took to her Instagram stories, where she said she made it clear before she went on that she didn’t want to talk about her recent breakup with Colton Underwood. Despite this request, Harrison pushed her to comment on what caused their breakup, and Randolph says most of what they discussed besides Underwood was edited out.  

“We talked about my tattoo, we talked about reminiscing on Trista’s season which was the whole point of going on. We talked about school,” she said. “Believe it or not, there is so much more to me than just my past relationship, and I think that’s why I’m annoyed.”

Even though Randolph never commented on the details of their breakup out of respect for Underwood, she said she still received “nasty messages” after the interview aired. 

“People saying, ‘How rude of you, how disrespectful of you to go and talk all about your relationship and give so many details with Colton not being there,’” she said. “When you watch the interview, I said absolutely nothing. Like absolutely nothing. That’s not what it was about. That’s not what it was supposed to be about.”

The last 2 years I’ve been thrust into a spotlight after living a fairly normal life. Since then, I’ve been trying to learn how to navigate my life changes while also trying to cling to who I am. I used to think a platform would give me a voice, but in many ways a platform takes your voice. For someone like me it’s been paralyzing. I can overthink everything. It takes really thick skin to navigate constant drama, fake articles, nasty DMs & comments or rumors started by people who feel entitled to your personal life. It takes incredible mental strength to shrug off strangers who regularly criticize your character based on conclusions they drew while watching an edited tv show (I could say so much here). It can feel like an uphill battle. Sometimes I want to just say what I want & forget my sensitive side that strives to do the “right thing”, be calm & rational, be kind, think of others first etc.. I feel like saying: ok all you mother ffers hating on me for my breakup-please stop. It’s been an awful few months for ME trying to go thru it. I’m STILL going thru it. It’s hard enough w/out your know-it-all comments. You literally know nothing so go away. One minute I feel my rant above & the next I feel selfish thinking about myself when there are truly critical issues in the world right now: BLM, Covid, toxic politics, matters of life and death; social injustice. Kinda puts personal problems in perspective. Hence, the reason I decided (against advice) to cancel contracts & delete IG for 30 days. The break, tho short, was amazing. What did I do? I read a LOT, got a tattoo, caught up with friends, attended 2 protests, finished 60 HOURS OF SIMUCASE, re-evaluated my dreams and goals, went surfing, dyed my own hair, played my guitar, got out my sewing machine…lived in the moment. Life is short. We all have struggles to figure out. All we can do is the best we know in the moment so when we reflect, we don’t feel regret. Always be learning, always be growing. Ok, I’m done. A bit all over the place, but I’m forcing myself not to overthink. Thx to the majority of u who’ve been kind & sent concerned messages. It means more than u know ❤️ ily all (minus the trolls)

In the interview, Randolph said that quarantine and Underwood’s experience with Covid-19 weren’t reasons for their breakup, though she didn’t disclose what specifically was behind the decision to end their relationship. 

“If anything, that whole experience of going through him having Covid and being with my family kind of made us closer,” she told Harrison. “I don’t really want to go into detail about anything. I kind of want to respect him in that way too and not talk about it.”

Randolph also told Harrison she has no regrets from her experience on The Bachelor.

“No regrets at all,” she said. “I think for me the biggest thing that I’ve learned through everything though has been to be confident.”
