If you’ve been wondering why Colton Underwood’s face looked so familiar on Monday night’s premiere episode of The Bachelorette, it may be because you’ve seen it next to a famous face before.
While Colton’s distracting appearance (he’s really hot), honorable profession (the retired professional football player runs a non-profit that provides equipment for people living with Cystic Fibrosis), and shocking revelation (he said he's a virgin), were enough to make him a memorable night one Bachelorette contestant, it was his past relationship with Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman that really got Bachelorette Nation's attention.
Once Colton made his Bachelorette debut, fans were quick to connect the dots, taking to Twitter to express their shock about his past relationship.
“COLTON UNDERWOOD DATED ALY RAISMAN BROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO,” one wrote.
“I knew Colton looked familiar,” tweeted another.
While one fan seemed more shocked by the fact that Aly and Colton were no longer together.
“Ummm he used to date Olympian Aly Raisman,” they tweeted. “I thought they were still together until I saw him on there lol."
The former Raiders tight end dated the Olympic gold medalist from December 2016 to June 2017, after asking Aly out on YouTube.

Following their breakup, Colton told The Lincoln Journal Star that there was no bad blood between him and Aly.
“It ended fine. We’re in a good place,” Colton said. “Those six months were great.”
Hopefully, he'll have more than a few great months with Bachelorette Becca Kufrin.
The odds looked like they were in his favor as he led the pack—along with Blake, Griffin and few other not-there-just-for-TV guys—during Monday night's premiere episode, making it through the first rose ceremony.
