We are only week 3 into this season of The Bachelorette, and already there is a plethora of controversy.
The hottest tea to come out thus far revolves around Becca's friend Tia Booth, and Colton Underwood.
During the last episode, Colton came clean to Becca about his relationship with Tia. Naturally, Becca was skeptical about what she learned, and she kept her guard up around Colton. During last night's episode, Colton and Tia were reunited during Becca's group date excursion. Of course this made Colton and Tia uncomfortable, and you could see the awkwardness between the two of them. Becca kept her eye on Colton during the group date and talked to him some during the evening portion.
Eventually, she was able to let her guard down around Colton. However, viewers wondered how "over" Tia and Colton really were.
It is rumored that Colton probably auditioned for the show because he thought Tia was going to be The Bachelorette. While it's obvious that Colton may have feelings for Becca, seeing Tia's reaction to Colton makes people wonder if she still harbors feelings for him.
Booth has said in interviews that her relationship with Colton wasn't serious and they knew from the get-go that the relationship wouldn't work out. She even went on to say that she respects him.
So, does Colton deserve to be on the show? Sure! Obviously it's awkward to run into an ex, but that doesn't mean that they are still vying for one another.
Readers: Should Becca continue to be skeptical about Colton's intentions? Do you believe he and Tia are completely over? Catch me on Twitter, or let me know in the comments below.
