Colton ends his relationship with Tia in emotional breakup on 'Bachelor in Paradise'

On Bachelor in Paradise, Colton and Tia’s relationship came to a dramatic end when a tearful Colton broke things off just moments after Tia talked about how strong their relationship was. It appeared, up until that point, to be the strongest relationship on the show, and Colton and Tia seem to genuinely care for each other.

While breaking up, Colton held back tears while saying, “I just know what you deserve, and I can’t give it to you. That’s the worst part of it all.” And during the show, Colton posted a message to Tia on Instagram saying, “Thank you for teaching me even more about myself, and most importantly, for your friendship that I know will continue far beyond Paradise. Don’t settle for anything less than the world, because that’s what you deserve.”

Colton and Tia both immediately left the show. But that might not be the last we see of Colton. The newest Bachelor will be revealed on Good Morning America, and fans have already taken to Twitter to voice their displeasure at the thought of it being Colton. Based on what he said while leaving Paradise, it may be best if Colton doesn’t jump back into the dating pool quite yet.

“I really did give it my all. I really did try,” Colton said. “I don’t deserve her. I’m broken.”
