FAITH & FAME: Bachelor’s Colton Underwood Gets Vocal About Faith

Written by: Meagan Lynn – December 30th, 2019 6:43am PT

While Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette is credited for carving out a space for spiritual conversations to take place on the franchise, she isn’t the only show lead focused on her faith.

Former Bachelor Colton Underwood took to Instagram Sunday to share some of his faith journey with his two million followers.

“Something that I have found over the last few years is that you can have time with God whenever you want. Today I’m spending time with him while flying at 30,000 feet and I wanted to share with you a reading from Jesus Calling that hit me hard,” he wrote, sharing a quote from the devotional. 

Underwood has always been vocal about his relationship with God, and was critical of The Bachelor producers for not including more of those conversations in the show.

“One thing that isn’t shown this episode or enough was every home I was in we talked about our faith! Very special,” he wrote on Twitter of his hometown visits during his season.

Underwood is still dating Cassie Randolph from his season of the show, and US Weekly reported in May that their relationship is “rooted in faith.” While they’re not engaged yet, Underwood teased buying a ring “when the time is right” earlier this month. 

While Bachelor Nation patiently awaits its next engagement announcement (and Peter Weber’s upcoming season), fans can keep up with their favorite franchise stars by following AfterBuzz’s “Bachelor News Daily” on Instagram TV and YouTube.
