“It’s no surprise to me that people are going to view the Fantasy Suites as this big week for me,” Colton told People, who revealed on Becca Kufrin's season on The Bachelorette that he is a virgin. “People are probably going to put a lot of pressure on it… but for me, it was more about the private moments."
