Bachelor’s Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph Split

Another Bachelor Nation couple has called it quits. Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph announced their split on Friday, May 29.

“It’s been a crazy few months to say the least, Cass and I have been doing a lot of self-reflecting,” the 28-year-old former Bachelor wrote alongside a photo of the pair via Instagram. “Sometimes people are just meant to be friends – and that’s okay. We both have grown immensely and been through so much together – so this isn’t the end of our story, it’s the start of a whole new chapter for us.”

Randolph, 25, commented two red heart emojis. The grad student subsequently shared her own tribute to their relationship.

“First off, I want to say this is one of the hardest things I have had to share as neither one of us is quite ready to talk about it yet,” Randolph wrote. “However, because our relationship is such a public one, our silence on the matter has been speaking for us. Colton and I have broken up, but have decided to remain a part of each others lives. With all that we have gone through, we have a special bond that will always be there. I love Colton very much and have an enormous amount of respect for him. We have both learned and grown so much these past couple years, and will always have each others back. Always.”

Underwood and Randolph met while filming season 23 of The Bachelor. The twosome sparked split speculation after he left her family home in Huntington, Beach, California, earlier this month. The former football player lived with Randolph’s family while recovering from COVID-19 in March.
