We Now Know Why Colton Jumped The Fence On "The Bachelor" And It Was Actually Juicy AF

The most dramatic moment in Bachelor history...but for real tho.

Posted on March 4, 2019, at 10:22 p.m. ET

If you've been following Colton Underwood's journey for ~love~ on The Bachelor this season, you know the reason fans keep tuning in is for one reason, and one reason ONLY.

The only reason I’m watching this damn show at this point is for @colton to jump a fence. JUMP THE GD FENCE COLTON. #TheBachelor

Is anyone else extremely excited for @colton to FINALLY jump over the fence/gate tonight on the @BachelorABC???? Because I know I am!!! This episode is the only reason I watched this season. #LetsBeHonest

I swear the only reason I’m even still watching The Bachelor is to see Colton jump that damn fence #TheBachelor

If you're lost, here's an explainer. Way back at the first episode of the season, The Bachelor teased a scene where Colton storms off in a rage, hops a fence, and has to be chased down by producers.

This moment will go down in Bachelor history. #TheBachelor

Fans couldn't wait for the drama, and to see what could cause him to do such a thing. And every week, with no fence hop in sight, the anticipation kept building.

#thebachelor COLTON you better jump the fence today

Me...still waiting for Colton to jump over the fence. #TheBachelor

People got so frustrated, someone even made a Twitter account solely to announce when the jump would happen.

Nah. Why do I let myself get so excited each week? #TheBachelor

However, ABC promised fans that Monday night's episode would finally be the night he jumps.

STOP EVERYTHING. This is the night. We promise. #TheBachelor jumps the fence at 8|7c on ABC!

And SPOILER ALERT: He did!

And it was JUICY. After frontrunner contestant Cassie Randolph told him she wasn't sure if she was ready for marriage, Colton begged her to stay.

However, she decided to leave. Cassie told Colton she "wanted to do the best for [him]," and told him to find someone who was completely in love with him. She said she was worried she couldn't get to the place he wanted them to be in their relationship.

This enraged Colton so much that he...you guessed it...stormed off the show and 👏🏻jumped 👏🏻that 👏🏻fence.

HE HAS JUMPED THE FENCE!!! REPEAT! HE HAS FINALLY JUMPED THE FENCE #TheBachelor

His whereabouts are unknown.

And all the hype...actually...delivered?

It was beautiful.

I WAS NOT LET DOWN THIS FENCE JUMPING SITUATION IS EVERYTHING Chris Harrison trying to open the gate... Just magical #TheBachelor

After years of lies, Chris Harrison's promises came true.

The fact that the fence jump turned out to be part of the season's most important moment and not some throwaway part is something we should all cherish forever. The stars aligned. #TheBachelor
