Watch: Colton Underwood Recaps "The Bachelor" Premiere

You may have had your thoughts about how the Bachelor premiere went down last night, but Colton Underwood doesn't really seem to care. 

For one, there's Catherine. Where viewers saw a crazy woman who gave away her dog then obliviously interrupted other convos a total of three times for a total of four different "too short" conversations with Colton, Colton saw a woman who was just proving her intentions. 

"Honestly, even in the moment and even watching it, I'm like, all right, she's letting it be known that she's here for me, and she's going to do whatever she needs to do to get time with me," Colton told E! News' Erin Lim. "I actually respected it."

Colton also knows how we all feel about the virginity jokes, of which there were many last night. 

"Right now, it's old," he says, but he promises it will get better. "Hang in there with us. We have a couple more episodes where they're going to still poke fun at it, but I think people are going to get a lot of answers." 

Not only will we find out who Colton is as a person aside from being a football-playing, dog-loving virgin, but we'll also finally find out if he's now happy, in love, and maybe even engaged. Until that airs, he's not saying a word.

"I like secrets," he says. "I want everybody to feel what I felt and go through it with me and experience it with me firsthand. I don't want it to be leaked or people to have an idea of which way it's going to because that's how it was for me, sort of like this windy road of navigating my feelings and growing as a human being."
