Colton Underwood dropped a bombshell on Bachelorette Becca Kufrin on Monday night. What’s the deal between Colton and Tia Booth!?

Becca Kufrin learned something new about contestant Colton Underwood this week and it’s not that he is (supposedly) a virgin. Instead, he tells Becca he had a relationship with Tia Booth before filming for The Bachelorette started.

Although Becca doesn’t send him home during the second episode, there is much more to come… (Spoilers ahead)

Colton’s “relationship” with Tia

Colton tells Becca he was in a relationship — but says it was for 48 hours. That’s not a relationship, Colton.

According to Reality Steve, Tia and Colton were “most definitely seeing each other” before the Bachelor Women Tell All was taped in February. Becca’s season started filming on March. Did they spend more than 48-hours together?

Why didn’t Tia tell Becca? Hmm…

Tia shows up on The Bachelorette

Producers need some serious drama this season, so why not bring Tia on to shake things up?

Tia will make an appearance on the week 3 group date, but it’s still not enough to get Becca to dump Colton.

So, why not bring Tia back again right before the hometown dates rose ceremony? Good idea, producers. Way to bring the drama this season.

If Reality Steve’s spoilers are correct, that will be the last straw for Becca.

She sends Colton home after their hometown date, but he’s not done yet!

Paradise next stop for Tia and Colton, but that’s not all…

Several guys from Becca’s season will be part of the season 5 Bachelor in Paradise cast, including Colton.

And, in a shocking twist, a bunch of Arie’s girls will be there, too.

Yes, that includes Tia Booth.

Will Colton and Tia rekindle their relationship? We won’t find out for sure until spoilers come out about Paradise — filming starts at some point this week.

However, my gut tells me that Colton will break Tia’s heart in Paradise and will end up handing out roses as the 2018 Bachelor. Was this his goal to begin with?

Nick Viall was introduced as The Bachelor after he dumped Jen Saviano on Bachelor in Paradise, so never say never when it comes to Colton.

Stay tuned — it’s going to be a long, dramatic summer!
