From former football player and star of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette comes a fascinating and eye-opening behind-the-scenes look at his drama-filled season on the hit reality show.

Before Colton Underwood captured the hearts of millions on The Bachelor, he was a goofy, socially awkward, overweight adolescent who succeeded on the football field while struggling with personal insecurities off it. An All American gridiron hero, he was also a complex, sometimes confused, soft-hearted romantic wondering how these contradictions fit together. Old-fashioned and out of step with the swipe right dating culture of today, he was saving the most intimate part of life for the love of his life. If only he could find her…

Now, in The First Time, Colton opens up about how he came to find himself and true love at the same time via the Bachelor franchise. Unencumbered by cameras and commercial breaks, he delivers a surprisingly raw, endearing, and seriously juicy account of his journey through The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise, and The Bachelor, along with what has happened with him and Cassie Randolph since his season wrapped. He opens up about being dumped by Becca, his secret dalliance with Tia, what it was like to be the world’s most famous virgin, his behind-the-scenes conflicts with production, and how his on-camera responsibilities as the Bachelor nearly destroyed him after he knew he had already fallen in love with Cassie.

A memoir for Bachelor Nation and anyone who believes in the magic of love, The First Time carries a simple but powerful message: It’s okay to laugh and cry and occasionally jump over a fence, if it means coming one step closer to the right person.


  • I'm a straight 45 year old married dude and even I want to give Colton a rose now.

    Just when you thought Colton was the contestant with the most integrity, you will think even more of him with this book. He makes you want to be a better person with his honesty and vulnerability. Now I'm going to go give my wife a big kiss (but even I know not to use her toothbrush, Colton!).
  • I’m a new fan for life!

    This book was nothing short of entertaining. It doesn’t feel as if Colton is purposely trying to tell a good story but because he’s so honest and real a good story automatically came from his words. Colton is so normal and pleasant. I relate to you in so many ways. You now have a fan for life Colton!
  • Thanks for being so real

    I hate reading, but love everything Bachelor Franchise related. This was so refreshing to read and I loved the insight of what actually happens behind scenes. It was so nice to read about a true love story.
  • Great authentic storytelling

    Colton has a great sense of self and voice that made this tell-all a quick and compelling read. I got through this book in 3 hours and was left wanting more.

    Easy read
  • Couldn’t put it down

    If you are a Bachelor fan you should definitely read it! I am a fan and watched Colton’s time on the shows. I really enjoyed his season and how he took matters into his own hands and made the show work for him and Cassie, so I was interested to read his book and hear more about how they fell in love. It was an interesting read for any Bachelor enthusiast with plenty of peeks behind the curtain and details about the show and how it works. The writing was not incredible but it was easy to read, flowed nicely and was packed with information, and was hard to put down. I appreciated the insight he gave into his life and reasoning behind his actions on the shows, but I loved that it didn’t read like a self help book. It was more like reading a long journal entry, which was much more enjoyable to me. I wish him and Cassie the best!

    By Victoria Majeske
    One of the best books I have read in a while. I watched Colton’s season of the bachelor and it was definitely my favorite season. I loved learning more about Colton and gaining so much more respect for him. Reading about his The Bachelor experience was also super cool. 10/10 recommend.
