'The Bachelor' Finale: Colton Underwood Makes Franchise History as He Goes From Three Women to Zero

So... what happened after Colton hopped the fence?

Well, that's one way to kick off a finale! 

Colton Underwood's Bachelor journey aired night one of its two-part finale on Monday night. Fans were left with a cliffhanger last week, as the 27-year-old former football player hopped a fence into the Portuguese darkness, after admitting he was in love with Cassie, who had just dumped him. 

We found out exactly what happened after Colton's escape on Monday night, and ET was live blogging along the way, with our Lauren Zima going live with Roses and Rose directly after the episode. 

Colton, who was already our first virgin Bachelor, again made franchise history on Monday, as he became the first person to go from three women left to a big old ZERO! However, after breaking things off with Tayshia and Hannah G., fans quickly found out that Colton had plans to get Cassie back. The episode ended with him knocking on her door. 

"Cassie left me, but I still love her," he told the camera -- after she had just revealed how she's looking forward to him moving on. "I don't want to leave here without her." 

While speaking with ET at the "Women Tell All" special, host Chris Harrison said that Colton "didn't come back" to the show after his fence jump on his own. "He gave himself up in a way that we found him," he explained. 

"We called back to Los Angeles... and we woke up other executive producers and executives and said, 'This is what's happening. What do we do?' and they said, 'At some point, you're gonna have to call the authorities,'" Chris recalled. "Luckily as we were about [to call the cops], someone's walkie talkie clips."

"That's where we pick up next week with the finale," he added. "You'll see us chase him down."

Find out how everything played out below. 

Colton's journey will continue with night two of the Bachelor finale on Tuesday, March 12, airing at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. Join ET's Bachelor Nation Facebook group here.
