He may have also tried to date "Bachelor" contestant Tia Booth.

The newest season of The Bachelorette premiered last night, and one of the contestants was revealed to have a very famous ex. 

Colton Underwood, 26, mentioned to Bachelorette Becca Kufrin that he had been in one other serious relationship prior to coming on the show. Twitter was quick to remember that this serious relationship was with none other than Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman. 

The two first met when Raisman, 24, went on a double date in August 2016. She and the former Raiders tight end were introduced through mutual friends. 

The couple made their relationship official five months later when they walked the red carpet together at the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year Ceremony in New York. 

“He’s just a very thoughtful person,” Raisman previously told PEOPLE of Underwood.

In June 2017, Underwood revealed that they had broken up because of their busy work schedules and said the pressure from the attention they gained online was a lot to handle, but they "had fun with it."

“We’re taking a break right now. We’re still good friends and talk, but all that travel had been a nightmare,” he said. "It ended fine. We’re in a good place.”

However, Raisman reportedly wrote about Underwood in her book, Fierce: How Competing for Myself Changed Everything. She recalled a time when he was "mean and rude" to her. 

"'You haven't done anything today. So we're going to listen to this sports radio station. I want to hear what they say about me.' I sat silently for the rest of the car ride. I couldn't wait to get out. I felt embarrassed, but also angry that I had traveled to see someone who treated me so disrespectfully," she wrote.

Underwood was also supposedly DMing Bachelor contestant Tia Booth, who was one Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season with Kufrin.

A fan wrote on Reddit that Bachelor In Paradise couple Raven Gates and Adam Gottschalk claimed that "a guy on Becca's season was DMing Tia." 

"We don’t know if it’s Colton [Underwood]," the user wrote. "But Colton expressed his interest in Tia several times on Twitter and they are following each other on Instagram so people speculated Colton is the guy they were talking about.”

During this season of the show, Underwood reveals to Kufrin that he's a virgin during their one-on-one date. He said he was "ashamed" and "made up lies" because he didn't want anyone to know the truth. 

Neither Raisman, Booth or Underwood have confirmed or denied the rumors.
