"It’s crazy what a tailor and some confidence can do for a person."

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 telling The 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
