Colton Underwood won’t be handing out that V-card anytime soon — at least according to his ex, Tia Booth.

Booth, 27, who dated Underwood briefly before he went on the franchise and then again on Bachelor in Paradise last summer, recently opened up about the current Bachelor’s much talked-about virginity.

“No, I don’t think he does [lose his virginity on the show],” she told Entertainment Tonight at the Los Angeles premiere of Isn’t It Romantic on Monday, quipping, “Because I think he’s gonna wait for f—ing ever!”

Booth said she hasn’t been watching Underwood’s season, but she’s been keeping up with the highlights on Twitter.

“He makes out a lot. They don’t talk a lot on dates, they just make out a lot,” she joked. “[But] I think it’s gonna end well, I really do.”

As for who he might end up with? Booth said while she’s kept in touch with her ex, he’s been “pretty tight-lipped” about how his season ends. And after jokingly predicting his final pick will be “blonde, early twenties,” Booth said she does think Underwood ends up in a committed relationship.

“I do [think he’ll end up with someone],” she said. “I don’t think he’d do this whole thing if he wasn’t serious about it. … I think he’s serious about this and he really did it to find a wife.”

Sitting down with PEOPLE recently, Underwood said he never intended for his virginity to become such a talking point.

“I had no plans to share that I was a virgin,” he said. “It was something in the moment with Becca. It was important for her to know. I didn’t think it was going to be a big deal but obviously, a lot of people latched onto that.”

And though he’s “grateful” for the support and fan reactions he received after he opened up, Underwood was quick to point out that being a virgin is only a “small part of who I am.”

“It’s a decision I consciously made, but it’s just something that makes me into who I am,” he said. “There is a stigma around athletes and I think the more that us as humans can do to break those, the better.”

The Bachelor airs Mondays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.
