Colton Underwood didn't have his love reciprocated on The Bachelorette, but maybe he'll have better luck on Bachelor in Paradise.

Colton, a 26-year-old former professional football player from Illinois who currently resides in Denver, CO, has officially been announced as a fifth-season Bachelor in Paradise contestant.

"Welcome to Paradise, Colton! Someone's waiting for you there," wrote The Bachelorette's Twitter account following his elimination on Monday night's episode starring Becca Kufrin.

Along with the message was a video of Tia Booth, whom Colton briefly dated before Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season of The Bachelor began airing on ABC. Tia and Colton kissed and spent a weekend together, but they called it quits due to bad timing.

As shown on The Bachelorette this week, Tia admitted to Becca that she still had feelings for Colton, and so Becca ousted Colton in fourth place despite meeting his family and learning he was in love with her.

"There are still feelings there, but I don't know if he has them for me," Tia said in the Twitter video.

Bachelor in Paradise's page then retweeted the same post about Colton and Tia, a physical therapist from Arkansas.

"Damn y'all couldn't wait until the limo took me to the airport to announce this?" Colton tweeted last night.

Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone leaked Colton's Bachelor in Paradise participation last month by revealing he was actually spotted on a date with Tia in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, while cameras were rolling.

The couple appeared cuddly with each other during a game of musical chairs, and they allegedly enjoyed a double date with Tia's friend Raven Gates and her boyfriend of one year, Adam Gottschalk

Colton -- who revealed he's a virgin on The Bachelorette and has only been in one serious relationship prior to Becca -- will join Becca's other exes Wills Reid, Chris Randone, Connor Obrochta, David Ravitz, Joe Amabile, John Graham, Jordan Kimball and Nick Spetsas from Season 14 of The Bachelorette in Mexico.

"I will forever cherish my relationships & time on the bachelorette. I learned that's it's okay to be different and to be unapologetically yourself. Thank you Becca for allowing me grow as a person," Colton additionally tweeted on Monday night.

Most of the Paradise cast had already been announced late last month, around the time ABC disclosed the new season will premiere with a two-hour episode on Tuesday, August 7 at 8PM ET/PT.
