It appears that the romantic ties between people of the same trade are not going anywhere anytime soon. However, for Colton Underwood and Aly Raisman, it may be the end of the road for their fairytale relationship.
But first, a little backstory on the duo.
Colton Underwood and Aly Raisman
Colton Underwood, born January 26, 1992, is an American football player who plays in the tight end position. His career obviously hasn’t been everything – or anything – like the way he envisioned it. He has only been involved in offseason and practice squads throughout his professional career.
He was brought on by the San Diego Chargers on May 10, 2014, as an undrafted free agent. This position lasted barely three months as he was waived on August 30 of the same year. A little over a week later, it felt like he had been given a new lease on his career when he was signed to the practice squad of the Philadelphia Eagles.
The San Diego Chargers came back for him on September 23, 2014. Underwood was taken back and signed to the team’s practice squad. He put pen to paper on a future contract on December 29, 2014, only to be waived on September 5th of the following year. He was put on injured reserve a day later and four days later, he was waived from injured reserve. Oakland Raiders took him off the Eagles’ hands on December 1, 2015, and signed him to their practice squad. He was let go by the Oakland team on August 29, 2016.
Aly Raisman has had much better luck in her career than Colton. She was born on May 25, 1994, in Needham, Massachusetts. Perhaps, it helps that she was born to a gymnast mom, Lynn Raisman. Her mom’s athletic history and Aly’s adoration of the 1996 Summer Olympics gold-medal-winning U.S. women’s team – Magnificent Seven – started on this part really early, at two years old.
She has competed professionally in a myriad of Olympic competitions since 2009. She has been in the American Classic, U.S. Classic, National Championship and a lot more. She has also competed in a host of Olympic competitions on the world stage and has medals to show for it.
Aly won two gold medals and one bronze for the team, floor, and balance beam competitions respectively, at the 2012 Olympics. In the next edition of the Olympic games, she also bagged a gold medal and silvers for the team and all-around events respectively. She was also a part of the gold-winning American teams of the 2011 and 2015 World Championships.
Aly Raisman and Colin Underwood met – at least virtually – after her strides in the 2016 Olympics. Colin had reached out to her via a video with an offer for a double date with his teammate, Andrew East and former Olympian, Shawn Johnson. It was just meant to be a date but a few months later they confirmed to already suspecting fans that it was more than just that. They were officially dating, they were seen together both online and at red carpet events including the Golden Globes.
The spilt happened in 2017 after which Colton confirmed during a phone interview that they were taking a break from each other. He cited their rigorous training schedule and travelling as the main reason for the split but says that they are in a good place and still talk often. Their fans continue to hope that they’ll get back together.
Meanwhile, Aly has been busy these days lending her voice and rage to the trial of famous Olympic doctor Larry Nassar, the prominent doctor who pleaded guilty to sexually abusing young gymnasts who were under his care.
Among the list of victims are Olympic medalists Simon Biles, McKayla Maroney, Gabby Douglas and Aly Raisman herself. Retired gymnasts like Shawn Johnson also came out to support the girls and express their deep disgust for USA Gymnastics and USOC for not dealing with this issue the moment it became public more than a year ago.
Colton Underwood and Aly Raisman have no child together. It seems their budding romance didn’t have enough time to blossom into something more lasting.
Salary and Net Worth
Colton Underwood And Aly Raisman may not have a joint net worth since they are not officially married. For all of Aly’s athletic endeavors since 2009, she should be sitting on a pretty pile of money. This is especially true when her numerous Olympic medals are factored into the equation. Latest reports suggest that her net worth is $2 million.
On Colin’s part, football isn’t all that he does for a living. He owns a restaurant called the 4th & Goal Grill in Washington, Illinois. Underwood opened the sports bar in August of 2016. He also has a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging youths to engage in athletics. The Legacy Foundation, as it is called, is also dedicated to supporting people living with Cystic Fibrosis while providing resources for research on the ailment. He has a net worth of $1.1 million.
