The Bachelor star Colton Underwood appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The former NFL player, who played for the Oakland Raiders and the L.A. Chargers, shared his reaction to being named the newest bachelor.

Colton Underwood seems serious about his commitment to finding love. In the video below, he had this to say about love and The Bachelor:

“I’m so ready, I’m so excited, to not only, you know, meet my fiance, my wife, but to the mother of my children and somebody who I want to spend the rest of my life with.”

Colton Underwood has been searching for true love for a while now. Beginning with his appearance on The Bachelorette and continuing with his stint on Bachelor in Paradise, he persisted in his search for the woman he would want to marry. Colton wants to stay abstinent until he finds that perfect partner.

When Ellen mentioned the fantasy suites in The Bachelor’s mansion, Colton insisted that “We could play board games. We could hang out.”

Colton claimed that he was ready for his new search as the star of The Bachelor, so Ellen helped him search for his soulmate in a game called “Know or Go.” Three bachelorettes competed for a chance to greet Colton with an anxiety-inducing drop as the penalty for incorrect answers.

The new season of The Bachelor airs January 2019.
