EXCLUSIVE! Pictures from Andi’s Hometown Date Yesterday

Every season is a different animal for me. I kinda never know what to expect going in to each season, but I know at some point, I’ll get the spoilers. Usually they are pretty detailed. Obviously there are things in the past where I gave you spoilers that were never even shown, and sometimes stuff happens that I don’t know about. But for the most part, when I release my episode-by-episode spoilers, my main goal is to tell you who went on every date, what they did, who got the group date roses, who got eliminated and how. So basically you’ll have an outline for the season in terms of every episode. And then I sprinkle in stuff I hear about drama, cliques, fights, and any other behind the scenes stuff I’m told. What I post is what I know. Some is more than what actually gets shown, and some stuff that gets shown I don’t know about. But every once in a while I get stuff that even I shake my head at. As I’ve always said in regards to my spoilers, people just like sharing stuff with me. Must be my overwhelmingly charming personality. Gotta be it. Anyway, received these last night so I figured I’d share with you. Nick’s parents live in Waukesha, WI and that’s where dinner was after Andi & Nick had drinks at the Lakefront Brewery in Milwaukee. Here are pictures from last night’s dinner at the Viall house along with some notes…

Love the side pony in this one. Very 80′s of her…

Hometown1

The side pony again. Can’t get enough of it…

Hometown6

Yeah, this totally seems like you can have a normal conversation with a potential ex future sister-in-law…

Hometown2

You think all of Nick’s sisters (remember, he’s the 2nd oldest of 11 siblings) are on their phones fangirling to all their friends, “O…M…G!!!! Andi is on our couch!!!!” (Clarification: These aren’t his sisters in this pic. These are producers. But seeing them on their phone made me think of his sisters possibly fangirling)

Hometown3

Nom nom nom nom nom……Hey, save a plate for me. I’m starving.

Hometown4

This looks like the conversation with the family member who’s like, “Yeah, I think this show is crap and I don’t buy it.” (This is the same sister who is in pic #2).

Hometown5

The blonde one sure is a tall drink of water…

Hometown7

Peek-a-booooooo….I seeeeeeeeeee youuuuuuuuuu

Hometown8

A few notes about this hometown date…

-Nick was once engaged but broke it off because the relationship wasn’t working. Andi had a three year relationship in her past that she broke off for the same reasons and that’s what they’ve bonded over.
-Apparently Nick is an emotional guy and cried earlier in the day after seeing a friend. Sounds like before they met the parents, Nick saw a friend somewhere and cried when leaving his house.
-Yes, the sister in pics #2 and #4 is the one who is skeptical of the show. Andi did her best to convince her it’s legit. Not sure if it worked.
-There were over 10 people on this date
-Production sure does a great job with security around the house, don’t they? Bhahahahahahahahahaha

So there you go. Just wanted to share what I learned from Nick’s hometown. I believe Friday’s hometown is Chris’ in Iowa, Josh’s is Sunday in Tampa, and Marcus’ will be Tuesday here in Dallas. Hey, maybe I can go scope that one out or have a camera implanted in Marcus’ living room without them even noticing. I’m sneaky like that.

  1. Sceptical siblings are always interesting to watch. (Not Dez’s brother Nate though.) And I definitely prefer to see dates that take place in the actual family home rather than some rented or borrowed venue. It’s fun to record the show, then re-watch, pausing it to check out the momentos, photos and decorating. Yeah, I’m nosey. *LOL*

  2. Good points on the zzzzzzzzzz’s. At least with Huan Pah-blow, we knew we were getting a train wreck that we would easily be able to mock….. and JP delivered the goods in that respect, far more than I thought he would. But Andi…. I don’t see her creating a train wreck…. and I don’t see her as super attractive or desirable. She’s a lawyer, for God’s sake. Who cares? I’m not sure what will drive the interest in this season. I guess The Bachelor will think of something to string us along, they’re good at that. But I don’t see any compelling reason to watch, other than, just to watch to see what happens.

    I openly cheered for the JP train wreck, and really looked forward to it…. but truth be told, his lack of being able to speak …. not just his English, but the fact that he just never said anything …. made it quite boring. The complete meltdown in the last two episodes with Andi & Clare, and then Pah-blow himself in the WTA and ATFR was entertaining, but the rest of the season was a snoozer. Without the likely potential for a good meltdown, I’m just not sure what this season has to offer. We’re all done with the “finding love” concept, right? So, it’s all about the drama and meltdowns & mocking the contestants through the RS website comments, right? Where’s that stuff going to come from this season?

  3. Saw Andi’s hometown date with Josh today in Tampa. The producer in the pictures wearing the gray hoodie was there and told us we weren’t allowed to take pictures and the people that took the photos of the WI hometown got in trouble? We didn’t know if that was true or not or if they were just trying to get us to not take pictures. Or maybe they did because the photos were inside the house, I don’t know. We were just on the public street watching the outdoor activities but they obviously didn’t want us there. One of the production crew told another guy who arrived just before Josh and Andi told him not to talk to us.

    Anyway, it was interesting to watch an actual filming in progress. We saw them arrive and enter the house as the family all cheered when the door opened. They didn’t really acknowledge the filming crew much outside. Josh kept rubbing her back and kissed her once. Two of the production crew stood in front of our car trying to block our view but we could still see. Once they went inside we didn’t stay around much longer because we figured it might be hours before they came back out front. Good times.
