The “Bachelorette” Andi’s Final Four Breakdown & Who is She Engaged To?

Busy day yesterday. Andi’s guys’ bios were posted by ABC, Harper Collins sent me a copy of Courtney Robertson’s book (that I read through in 4 hrs), and I’m still sorting through information I received on Sunday in regards to this season (more on that later). So we are back into busy season now. Once the season starts up next Monday, it’s back to 2-3 columns a week, plus the live video chat every Thursday night. And for those that asked at the end of last season, Olivia and Nicholas will be appearing on the Thursday, May 29th video chat since I’ll be out in California for my birthday that weekend. Nicholas currently has no front teeth anymore so enjoy that. Also, I will be returning tomorrow with another column that covers the first episode of the season (assuming it gets released online today) and I will give my thoughts on all 25 guys bio pictures, answers, etc. Amazing what some of these guys answered to the questions asked of them. Really? You did know that millions of people would be reading these, right? Whatever the case, look for that tomorrow. This weekend I will get to writing my review for Courtney’s book which I’ll post for you next week. Is it gonna win any Pulitzer’s? No. But that was never the point. If you like this show, if you watch this show, and you enjoy the gossip and everything that goes with it, Courtney’s book is a quick, easy read that you’ll definitely learn stuff from that you didn’t know.

Chris Harrison gave his mini-rundown of the season in an interview he gave to USA Today, and already he’s lying. The whole thing about Chris Bukowski is complete BS. He’s trying to sell you on that nobody knew Chris was showing up, and that couldn’t be further from the truth. Even the new promo that ran during DWTS last night is already making the audience think that no one on set had any clue Chris was arriving and he just shows up out of nowhere to get on the show. Total crap. He spoke with producers beforehand, this was all planned out, and he was flown out there on the show’s dime. Andi didn’t know he was coming because they didn’t tell her. But plenty of others knew because they were the ones who arranged it. Already off to another great start on the “Bachelorette!”

After the bios were released yesterday, a quick Google search easily identified 2 of the 3 guys I didn’t have last names for yet, so here are their profiles:

So the only guy whose last name I don’t have yet is Emil. I Google searched for about 5 minutes, couldn’t find anything, so I stopped and went back to Courtney’s book. He’s a first night eliminatee, so it’s not something I want to spend too much time on. Someone else want to search him out and let me know, be my guest. He’s pretty insignificant to the season, but it’d be nice to have all 25 guys first and last names. UPDATE: It’s Emil Schaffroth.

  1. No surprise on the result. What’s the purpose of watching this season, again? I’m not an Andi fan, but I don’t think she’s going to douche it up like JP-Blow. Will there be some asshats on the show to keep it somewhat interesting? Well, someone will get the bad edit, whether they deserve it, or not. It’s hard to imagine the ratings holding up on this dog of a season.

  2. 29 year old with a Degree in Mechanical Engineering, byt working as a bartender on a ski resort= loser. Max age for jagging off like this is about 25. After that, whenever the parents are asked what you’re doing these days, they fake a heart attack.

  3. The only thing I might find interesting about Courtney Robertson’s book are her thoughts about Ben Flatdick. I’m going to guess she completely throws him under the bus and claims to have never had any genuine feelings for him…..in fact, I find it improbable that she feels much of anything since I find her to be about as deep as a puddle.

    I wish all the best for Andi. I think she’s a tough broad, but probably a decent person. We’ll see how she plays out as the lead. I’m just relieved to not have to sit through another season of Juan Pablo-esque behavior.

    I don’t give her relationship any better chance of succeeding with Josh because of their proximity to each other. In the unique case of starting a relationship after this show, I think there are pros and cons to having distance vs. living in the same town.

  4. Sad reading the bio of Eric. Looks like a LOT of the guys are into snow sports, surfing and the beach. Kinda hard to do those in Georgia, but then most of them like to travel a lot too….*LOL*

    I definitely think Josh M is the best looking of the bunch, but Emil the helicopter pilot is seriously tasty looking too. Unfortunate he’s booted the first night. I would have enjoyed the eye candy.

  5. I thought she’d go for the millionaire once she found out about his $ – otherwise thought it would be Josh.
    I hope they show what happened with her and Eric – no sympathy for a guy that brutally bludgeons a screaming pig to death to impress a village and posts the video on his website. ahole

  6. Probably the same people that gave all of the various “Real Housewives” their innumerable book deals. There are scads of them, along with crap churned out by other reality show has-beens.

  7. BFW: you’re right. The only thing Courtney could possibly have to offer a “publisher” (term used very loosely) is the willingness to push everyone she knows off the subway platform. Ben Flatdick is perfectly made to be thrown under the bus. In fact, in Webster’s Popular Phrases, next to the phrase “Thrown under the bus”, there is a pic of Flatdick’s size 6 penny loafers & shaved legs peering out from the #9 at the corner of Polk and Castro.

  8. FYI, Josh & Andi do NOT live in the same town. Josh lives in Athens & Andi lives in Atlanta. They are an hour and a half apart. Still close enough to make it work, though.

  9. Also, there are PLENTY of small towns between Athens & Atlanta where they can meet up & people would never know. She is one lucky girl…he is GORGEOUS! I’ve lusted over him during many games. lol! He has a great family, too. Hopefully they work out.

  10. I clicked on the link for the bios, and my gosh, Cody looks like Sean Lowe’s long lost steroid pumped gay twin brother.

  11. Wait. Didn’t she have the most ALONE time w Nick.. and barely any ALONE time w Josh until the very end?
    Am I missing something?

    So, they’ve spent a total of maybe 72 hours together?
    Congrats!

  12. It was so obvious that she would pick Josh and I didn’t even need RS’s spoiler. She was probably star struck when she met him because of his brother. It will never last. He can do a lot better than Andi. He was playing to “win.” She has an unattractive body and an abrasive personality. I see a guy like this going for an Emily type. His brother’s girlfriend is super hot – he ain’t gonna settle for Andi!

  13. Wow…It will never last??? How do you know? Do you know either of them? and SHE was star struck? They are both a catch. Haters unite, right? Everyone has something mean to say. He was playing to win??? That’s what you think of the kind of human being he is? You have no clue! She is NOT unattractive and because she stood up for herself with an a-hole like JP, she’s abrasive? I applaud her! AND I wish them both a lifetime of love and happiness! I can’t stand all the negative, miserable and unsupportive people who post.

  14. LJ: I agree with you completely. Atlanta is a Dawg Crazy universe. When I heard that Aaron Murray’s brother was on the show and found out that Andi’s Dad was a huge GA Bulldog fan, it was over in my mind…. and I made comments to that effect several RS blogs ago. Whether it will last, or not, is to be determined. But, I agree it’s unlikely. Josh Murray has his pick of thousands of girls far more attractive and far less abrasive than Andi (she’s a lawyer, remember, not a cheerleader). The only shot they have together is if Andi is going to pick up her legal career & put together a pretty nice lifestyle for the two of them. If Josh can sit by the pool and play golf most days, he might sign up for the ride. Otherwise, not happening.

  15. jacquibk: I’d agree with you on Andi, but the “Andi moment” with JP-Blow was a complete producer fabrication. I’m sure she was upset with him, many of the girls were, but that facial that she delivered was completely scripted. Entertaining, yes, but not spontaneous in any sense of the word. It’s also true that some Bachelorette couples have, in fact, gotten married. So, hold out hope. It could happen. We’ll have to assess Josh and Andi more. But, typically guys are into it for the ride, some booty and the chance to be on TV. Andi is in it for the fame & future career potential, largely. I say this because there was never any chemistry between her and JP, yet she hung out and faked it right into the final four. Why? She wanted the Bachelorette gig badly. Very few are really in it for “the right reasons”. If it happens to work out, then it’s pure luck, because few are there to find their soulmates. There are some who are there find a spouse, but I don’t see Andi in that way. She’s looking to gain notriety and launch her career. Josh, I don’t know, but the odds are that he’s not in it for Andi. He’s got a (locally, at least) famous brother. So, take his name, sprinkle in a little TV exposure & the sky’s the limit. He completely gets that unless he’s a total moron… and I doubt that he’s that, at all.

  16. rob22: He is definitely not a moron, and at 29 years old, he may be in it to find love. And maybe he did. He hadn’t before this time and maybe he had his pick, but he didn’t find her. Finding “the one” is hard for a lot of people. Some NEVER do. I hope for both of them, they did. My issue is with people who are immediately mean, judgmental and hateful. The Murray family are amazing people; honest, loving, kind and generous. And to say that Andi has an unattractive body is mean, too. Just because an unflattering picture was published as she was descending a slope on the beach does not make the totality of her unattractive. I doubt many people walking in that situation would want a picture of themselves published for the whole world to insult. I think she is beautiful. And she stuck it out with JP to give it a proper chance. She probably saw moments with JP that made her think it could work. Thank goodness it didn’t. He wasn’t the right one. People will always be judgmental, but I am not cut that way and it bothers me. The more I see of it, the more I like myself. Regarding the scripted nature of Andi’s delivery, I believe you. I do realize that a majority of the show is scripted, but there have been (quite a few now) couples who have found love and are together making it work and having children and THAT is not scripted. I say, GIVE THEM A CHANCE!!! Life is tough enough without every naysayer being mean. My own father said that about me and my husband…it will never last…and 29 years later and 2 adult kids…well…love is work, and we choose…and everyone else can just have their miserable existence. I’m happy and I hope and pray they will be too!

  17. Jacquibk: nobody on earth is against love. All some are, yes cynically, saying is that most people do not come on this show for love. In Andi’s case, RS was seeing that Andi was being primed and presented throughout JPs season to become The Bachelorette. So, not only was Andi sticking around to win the Bachelorette gig, but JP may have been encouraged/told to keep her around. Cynical? Absolutely. But this is a cynically produced show where the producers engineer scenarios and outcome to drive ratings. So, why would I buy into the “finding your soulmate” story line when the show itself doesn’t believe it?

    There are some who have actually been in it for love…. And the Dancing with the Stars gig and the paid for wedding, and the paid appearances….like Sean and Ashley Hebert. And maybe some purer than that. But nobody can argue that Huan Pah-Blow was one of those people, and I don’t see Andi being one of them either. As for Josh, I guess we’ll have to see. Maybe he’s Sean 2.0. In it for both love and the goodies.

    In the end, what are we at? 3 or 4 weddings out of 30+ seasons? That doesn’t speak to the show being the place people are finding love.

  18. I’m not sure why, maybe I’m just super picky but most of these guys that come on the show just don’t excite me. I like a guy with a few flaws. Not into pumped up chisel faced dudes. Josh- ehh, does nothing for me.

  19. Wow, Jacqui, “The Murray family are amazing people; honest, loving, kind and generous” Are they your next door neighbors or something? Relax – I think you’re a little too invested here!

  20. Jacqui – word of advise..be careful what you say on this site. There are a lot of haters that will have nothing good to say, no matter what you say, or how you put it. And you’re making it overly obvious that Josh is either your son, or a very close relation. Trust me..if you don’t want to read the negative responses, best to keep a lot to yourself :)

  21. Jacqui-I have to agree with Dianne. If you know Josh/his family personally it’s in your best interest to stay away from this site and its comments section as people don’t hold back judgment here. You’ll just end up frustrated and upset, I would guess.

    And I gotta disagree about Andi ever having one iota of genuine feeling/interest in Juan Pablo. I think she did the show to become the bachelorette and played it the best way she could to snare the gig. I have no issues with that, it had to be someone and of all his women I would have wanted to see her as bachelorette the most. Juan Pablo probably was an as$hole and she was fed up and gave him some of the honesty he kept yakking about wanting. To me that wasn’t “abrasive” that was her being human and self assured and refusing to just take his crap, beso his ass, and slink home quietly. Yeah a lot of that was rehearsed, no doubt, but she still got a big bravo out of me for it, but to each his/her own. Like Steve always says, they will never cast a lead who is universally liked.

  22. @Jacqui, well, at least you admit to being invested! LOL I just like watching the train wreck that is The Bachelor/ette and making fun of the contestants!

  23. Andi, if you are reading this or HY, if you are reading this….CONGRATULATIONS! I really hope it works out for you Andi. You guys look well matched and from equal type families….a lot in common.

    Just because Josh is a good looking guy, there will be a lot of haters saying he’s just in it for fame…blah blah blah.

    Well, I take into account Reality Steve’s opinion, b/c I know he gets his info from reliable sources and he genuinely thinks you guys have a good chance over the long haul.

    Good luck and enjoy the ride! I have been married for 8 years…together for 13 and 2 kids…we’ve had our ups and downs, but man is it a great life!!! It’s extremely rewarding to wake up and know your life has so much meaning and that you are the most important person in 3 people’s lives. xxx

  24. Who wins??? I am lost ! Never read the winners name! Did I miss something?

  25. Yes, gcast you missed something. George Clooney wins, he gets to marry a wonderfully smart lawyer.

    Read the damn column.
