Who Is Tia From The Bachelorette? 5 Things You Need to Know

Week 2 of Becca K's Bachelorette was certainly a doozy. In the June 4 episode, viewers discovered that Colton Underwood, who is currently pursuing Becca, was previously involved with Tia Booth. But, what's the big deal? Who is Tia from The Bachelorette? Well, Becca definitely thinks that Colton's Involvement is a little sketchy. And for good reason.

As it turns out, your query is wrong. It shouldn't be who is Tia from The Bachelorette. It should be who is Tia from The Bachelor. Yes, it turns out Tia Booth is actually from Arie Luyendyk Jr's season of The Bachelor, making it to the top 4. However, this means that Tia was a contestant with Becca last season. This was also revealed during last week's episode.

"Prior to coming on the show, I had a relationship with Tia from last season," Colton revealed.

Of course, if you're a member of #BachelorNation, you already knew that Tia was part of the season 22 of The Bachelor. So, what else do we need to know about Tia? Also, how does Tia and Colton's relationship affect Colton's chances with Becca on The Bachelorette season 14? We already know that Tia is coming for some extra drama during this week on episode 4. Stay tuned and keep reading. Here's everything you need to know about Tia Booth.

Now, for the juicy stuff. What the history behind Tia and Colton? The pair apparently had a fling, but it seems like it wasn't a big deal, especially after Colton was selected to be on The Bachelorette.

In an interview with People, Booth revealed how the two got together.

"We started talking before my season started airing,” Booth said. “Colton was in the casting process for The Bachelorette, and he followed me on Instagram. I DM’d him first and within a few days he told me he had applied to be on The Bachelorette. But he hadn’t gotten the final call so we thought, we get along well, we might as well just keep talking and doing whatever this is. The whole time I kept thinking, ‘What are the odds that he would get on the show?’"

But, does this mean that Colton cheated on Becca? No. The flame between Colton and Tia was cut short because Colton was selected for a show.

According to Booth, "Things came to a halt" once he found out.

“I knew he needed to do what he needed to do," Booth added.

So, there you have it. A clean break. But, we'll see how this story unfolds tonight.

3. Tia Remains Close Friends with Becca

It definitely looks like Tia is the type to put her friends first, both keeping a connection with Becca after The Bachelor and putting her relationship with Colton on the backburner so that he could pursue Becca on The Bachelorette.

“I just wanted to make sure they would give each other a chance,” Tia told People. “I didn’t want Becca to see our friendship as the most important thing and not give him that chance.”

And it seems like Tia is still close with Becca. Despite reports that Tia was "furious" that Becca was chosen as this year's Bachelorette rather than her, Tia has chosen to show nothing but support for her fellow contestant.

"This girl right here is the real deal," Booth wrote on her Instagram. "I can honestly say that Becca is one of the best people on this planet. Her heart&soul are so pure, and she truly sees the best in everyone @bkoof, you make me want to be the best version of myself. I am rooting for you so hard, and can’t wait for America to fall in love with your beautiful self (if they haven’t already) I love you so much, and am so blessed to call you a best friend."
