The Bachelor creator on picking Colton Underwood: "He looks the part, he’s an all-American kid ...The virginity thing is interesting"
Mike Fleiss says the potential of Colton losing his virginity "creates added stakes for this season. When we sat with all the guys that we were considering, Colton just seemed like a star. When you’re in the room with him, you’re like, that’s a big personality, a big presence. He just won us over. And he has grown from the time he was on Bachelorette. I think the Bachelor in Paradise experience did add to his maturity." As for Blake Horstmann and Jason Tartick not getting the job after lobbying for it, Fleiss says: "Yeah, which isn’t necessarily a good thing, you know?" ALSO: Arie Lyuendyk Jr. tells "a**hole" Jef Holm to "pay up" after Jef tweeted on New Year's Day last year he'd give $5,000 to charity if Arie "lasts 1 year with anyone."
