Talk about a glow up!

It’s no secret that Bachelor hunk Colton Underwood is a total dreamboat, but the former NFL star wants fans to know he didn’t always look this way. 

On Wednesday, the 27-year-old reality star took to Instagram to share a throwback photo of himself that appears to be from a high school prom alongside a pic of himself today. 

“It’s crazy what a tailor and some confidence can do for a person,” he captioned the impressive transformation. 

Underwood has been candid about his humble roots, recently tellingThe LadyGang podcast that he was called the “ugly duckling” in high school because he transformed into a good looking guy over the course of his senior year. 

"I had curly hair, braces, pimples, you talk about going through puberty and the worst things that go with it, I had it, for sure,” Underwood said. "And then I had a bottom retainer so my lisp was really bad. I still have a minor one when I get really excited.”

These days Underwood has no problem getting the ladies. Watch the clip below for more on his season of The Bachelor
