AceShowbiz - It's just days before season 23 of ABC's "The Bachelor premieres on January 7. To further hype the new season, new Bachelor Colton Underwood is teasing that his season will end in such an "unexpected" way.
The former football player tells The Hollywood Reporter that the upcoming season will feature him doing something unprecedented which definitely leaves the viewers shocked. "I did things differently. I sort of change the game in a unique way," he shares.
"I think it's going to be unexpected for some people, but it's also something that people are going to have an interest in and really find out more toward the end," he goes on explaining. "I don't want to ruin or spoil too much. But I'm really looking forward to this being the best season ever."
During the interview, Colton also talks about how and why he's on board with ABC using his virginity as the marketing of his season of the dating show. "I don't mind making light of it and having fun with it -- I can roll with the punches," he admits. "I'm used to locker room banter, and I can have fun with that side of things. Of course night one was maybe over the top, but it was also nice to have those jokes and be able to laugh and smile. That first night can be nerve-wracking and overwhelming, so moments like that have allowed me to stay loose and in the moment."
"Obviously, people are invested in that now because that's sort of been my story and what people know me for," he adds. However, he shares that he's hoping people will acknowledge him as someone who's "more than just being a virgin" after the season wraps up.
"I think people are going to have a better understanding not only of who I am, but the whole picture in regards to my virginity," he quips. "I will say this also: I pushed the production of this show just as much as they pushed me and allowed me to grow as a human being. I gave them a run for their money -- quite literally -- and I think they made me a better person. I hope at the end of this they can think that I made them better as well."
"The Bachelor" returns for season 23 on Monday, January 7 at 8 P.M. ET on ABC.
