Colton is a 26-year-old former professional football player from Denver, CO, whom Becca found herself immediately attracted to.

Colton is easy on the eyes and has a great smile, but Becca also felt connected to Colton right away because of his personality and admirable life goals.

However, Colton and Becca had to overcome a big hurdle, the fact he dated her close friend Tia Booth from Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season of The Bachelor -- a relationship that initially made Becca feel sick to her stomach.

But after Tia assured Becca that Colton is a great guy and very little happened between them because the timing was off when they met, Becca decided to continue pursuing a romance with Colton. And now, Colton appears to be a frontrunner for Becca's heart.

Until we can watch more of Becca and Colton's love story unfold on The Bachelorette's fourteenth season, let's learn more about him.
