Despite still having two other women — Hannah Godwin and Tayshia Adam — in the running to win his heart, Colton, 27, put everything out on the line when he realized Cassie, 23, was leaving the show on the March 4 episode.
As Bachelor Nation fans know, Cassie's father, Matt Randolph, was the only one of the four fathers to not give Colton approval to marry his daughter when he asked during hometown dates.
Producers flew Cassie's dad to Portugal so that he could explain his concerns to his daughter. It was during this meeting that the 23-year-old realized she is not in love with the former pro athlete.
Shortly after this realization, Cassie and Colton had a heartbreaking conversation, which ultimately led to their breakup. "I was shocked,” Colton told People. “I had no idea it was coming.”
“It was right back into the trap of loving somebody who wasn’t quite there with me,” the ABC personality said, referencing his time on Becca Kufrin's season of The Bachelorette in 2018. “It was very hard for me to hear.”
Despite those traumatic events, Colton looks happy and in love during the Women Tell All installment which airs on Tuesday, March 5 at 8pm ET on ABC.
In a preview for the conclusion of the show, fans saw both Tayshia and Hannah crying. Also, the 27-year-old was spotted hanging out with actor Gregg Sulkin in public on March 2, who happens to be Cassie's sister Michelle Randolph's boyfriend, which left many people wondering if he'd found a way to reconcile with the one who broke his heart.
“You’ll see a very important conversation I have with Chris Harrison and with my dad that plays an important role moving forward,” Colton said to People. “It’s definitely emotional.”
