The Bachelor and Bachelorette couples can't be seen in public together until after the finale airs
Every season, the Bachelor and Bachelorette couples are forced to keep their relationship under wraps until the finale airs, and as a result, they’ve come up with some pretty creative disguises over the years —and Cassie Randolph is no exception.
After Colton Underwood‘s season concluded Tuesday, she revealed a hilarious photo of herself wearing a black bob and sunglasses while en route to meet up with the former football player.
“So happy @cassierandolph doesn’t have to transform herself into EDNA MODE before sneaking around w/ @coltonunderwood anymore,” wrote her friend Saige Neyda Davis, who originally posted the side-by-side of Randolph, 23, and the animated character from The Incredibles.
“OH. MY. GOSH. AHAH,” Randolph wrote while reposting the image on her Instagram Story.
The couple, while not engaged (yet), are basking in the glow of their newly public relationship.
“We’re so excited to be out in public and not have to hide anymore,” Underwood, 27, tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “I’m so in love, and I’m ready for everyone to know it.”
Adds Randolph, “We can finally be outwardly happy, and not have to keep this big secret.”

Underwood has even moved from Denver to Los Angeles to be closer to Randolph in West Hollywood.
“Our goal is to buy a house in Huntington Beach in the next year, but we probably won’t move in together until we’re engaged or married,” says Underwood. “As much as I want her to live with me, it’s a big step and something we both take very seriously.”

As for when he’ll be getting down on one knee?
“She doesn’t have a ring on her finger yet,” he says. “But she will, one day.”
“We definitely talk about our future engagement,” adds Randolph, a speech pathologist. “We’re both excited to get to that point.”
