His Instagram, however, is still active with multiple photos and videos being posted following his Twitter exit. Though he didn’t mention why he left the social platform, many fans took to his replies on his last remaining post to share their thoughts.
“If he says anything to silence the haters they say he complains too much. I can’t anymore. Hope they give the guy a break,” one commenter wrote. “But then you are right this is unfortunately part of the new normal. If we think a person is too good he must be fake. I hope he is happy & stays happy!”
Another added: “He probably deleted all his tweets cause he wanted too. Maybe he’s taking a break.”
The 26-year-old NFL free agent, who was officially named the suitor for season 23 of The Bachelor on September 4, recently spoofed The 40-Year-Old Virgin in a poster for the competition series, referencing his highly publicized celibacy. The promo read: “What does he have to lose?”
Underwood first appeared on Becca Kufrin‘s season of The Bachelorette. He then moved on to Bachelor in Paradise — where he dated Tia Booth — before being named the next Bachelor.
The Bachelor season 23 premieres on ABC Monday, January 7 at 8 p.m. ET.
