After last week's episode saw the 27-year-old former football player hop a fence following his breakup with Cassie Randolph, fans were skeptical that Colton would end the season an engaged man -- or in a relationship at all. However, as viewers saw on Monday night's episode, Colton said goodbye to his remaining two women, Tayshia and Hannah G., and tracked down Cassie in California, to rekindle their romance.
So, where do things stand today? As Colton and Cassie told Chris Harrison on "After the Final Rose," they're happily dating... as the first couple since 2014 (hi, Juan Pablo Galavis!) to skip out on an engagement.
"We're in love!" Colton said.
"It's definitely something we've talked about," Cassie added of getting engaged, as Colton revealed they still have more to talk about before that happens.
"As the weeks progress, it gets more real and more real, and I think not only for me but these women too," he teased. "It's unlike anything else, and it's going to be a crazy one. You guys are in for a wild ride."
"It's going to be unexpected to a lot of people," Underwood told ET of his ending. "So we'll see what I'm shouting at the end off the rooftops, but I hope at the end of it, you can know that I'm happy. So we'll see."
