Will the New Bachelor Colton Lose His Virginity? Bet on It

This season's Bachelor series comes with a new twist.  The bachelor, 26-year-old Colton Underwood, is a virgin, and one online gambling site has posted odds that this is about to change.


BetOnline has posted odds that Colton will lose his virginity on the show at -500.  This means that one would have to bet $50 to win $10.  Should he lose his V Card, you'll get back that $50 plus the $10 profit.

"It's like shooting fish in a barrel," noted Payton O'Brien, Senior Editor of the Gambling911.com website.  "Sure the price is steep but this is a given.  Anyone who follows reality shows knows this is easy money."

Underwood is a former American football linebacker. He played college football at Illinois State and was signed by the San Diego Chargers as an undrafted free agent in 2014.

From Vox:

In the trailer, the word “virgin” is mentioned four times in the first 40 seconds. The implication is pretty clear: The main hook for the season will be the question of whether or not Colton will like a girl enough to have sex with her, ideally during the franchise’s notorious “Fantasy Suite” episode, in which the Bachelor/-ette can choose to spend a camera-free night in a ritzy hotel — each night with a different suitor.

Colton is not the first publicly proclaimed virgin collegiate or professional football player.  Russell Wilson and Tim Tebow have also proudly touted the fact that they were virgins.  Wilson is now a dad, and presumably no longer a virgin.
