The breakup of course lead to one of the best Bachelor moments of all time — Underwood’s infamous fence jump — but it also forced the 27-year-old to move forward following heartbreak.

“You see that, obviously, the story goes on and the show goes on and I think that I had a realization, ‘Life is not fair’ to myself,” he told Us Weekly.

“And I had a very important conversation with Chris [Harrison] about that [is,] … ‘Where do we go from here?’”

“And then having a conversation with my family and my dad really helped put things into perspective,” he explained.

“It was like, ‘You owe this to yourself and you owe this to these women to really explore and see where to go from here.’”
