Washington D.C.: American TV personality Colton Underwood and actor-singer Lucy Hale are the latest to spark dating rumours between a Bachelor Nation member and a Hollywood star.
According to Page Six, in a photo obtained by TMZ, the former ‘Bachelor’ star Underwood and the ‘Pretty Little Liars’ actor were spotted on a hike together at the Paseo Miramar Trail in Los Angeles on Wednesday (local time).
In 2018, the 31-year-old actor Hale told People magazine that she thought Underwood would be “beautiful to watch” on his ABC dating show.
“He’s wholesome,” she said. “He’s a good guy it seems.”
In January 2019, Underwood became ‘The Bachelor’. At the end of his season, he did not get engaged but was in a relationship with finalist Cassie Randolph. The couple called it quits in May.
Underwood said on his Instagram, “Its been a crazy few months, to say the least, Cass and I have been doing a lot of self-reflecting. Sometimes people are just meant to be friends – and that’s okay.”
The split appeared to be amicable until Randolph appeared on an episode of ‘The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons Ever’ and dodged a few questions about their break-up.
Randolph said during the virtual chat, “It’s kind of a sensitive subject because we’re still going through it, and I’m still pretty emotional for both of us. We haven’t really talked about it publicly yet and I don’t know if either of us is ready, but I will say it’s been really hard.”
Representatives for Hale and Underwood did not immediately return to the outlet’s request for comment.
