The former football player and self-confessed virgin appeared on the show on Tuesday September 4 to talk about the upcoming gig following a tearful breakup with Tia Booth on the spin-off Bachelor in Paradise.

"I'm very excited", Underwood, 26, told People. Third time's the charm hopefully. He added, "I want someone to spend the rest of my life with".

When Tia asked if he could say that he tried, Colton said, "I could look at you 100% certain and say that".

As for the new season, Underwood is just looking forward to what the future has in store for him.

Tia also confirmed via Twitter that she would not be a contestant on Colton's season of The Bachelor.

Another called Colton "an opportunist" and many more said they would not be tuning into the new season in January. "I just know what you deserve and I can't give it to you".

The Bachelor in Paradise star also told Tia not to settle for anything less than the world, saying that's what she deserved.

We are attempting to obtain reaction this morning from Washingtonians who knew Underwood back in the day, before he started dating Olympic gold-medal gymnast Aly Raisman.

The Indiana native made it all the way to hometown dates, with Becca seemingly excited about where their relationship could go.

Colton Underwood, who previously appeared on Becca Kufrin's cycle of "The Bachelorette" and most recently on "Bachelor in Paradise", is the next lucky man looking for love on the long-running reality series.

"Thank you for teaching me even more about myself, and most importantly, for your friendship that I know will continue far beyond 'Paradise, '" Underwood captioned a photo of himself and Booth on Instagram following Monday's episode of "Paradise".
