Week after week, millions of people tune into The Bachelor to watch Colton Underwood fall in love. His season has been quite unique, with the finale episode airing Tuesday night (March 12), yet there are no women left.

This season has been one of the most emotional in franchise history, with Colton even jumping a nine-foot fence to escape filming for a while and even quitting the show!

While he has made headlines because of the drama that has unfolded on the show, a lot of people have been talking about his last name and the fact that he shares it with one of country’s biggest superstars, Carrie Underwood.

Since Colton’s rise to fame being a contestant on The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise, and now The Bachelor, people have wondered if he is Carrie’s cousin, or even her brother!

Thanks to a response to a Bachelor video, we now know the truth.

The Bachelor tweeted a video with the caption, “[The Bachelor finale] may leave you ugly crying, but that’s okay because you can’t cry pretty” and included a montage of women – and Colton – crying throughout the season to the tune of “Cry Pretty.”

At the end of the video, it promoted Carrie’s upcoming Cry Pretty Tour and she responded to the tweet by saying she had “#NoRelation” to Colton.

Colton himself tweeted Carrie back, using some of her own “Before He Cheats” lyrics.

Many people reacted to her tweet, despite now knowing Carrie and Colton aren’t related. Check out some of our favorites below!
