The “Bachelorette” Andi Episode 9 Recap Including Your “Men Tell All” Spoilers

Men Tell All Spoilers

Even though these shows are always two hours, there’s never really a ton of content to them. You know what to expect pretty much. Although there were a couple things this time around we haven’t seen before, contrived as they may have been. Nothing is organic in these shows.

-In Chris Harrison’s blog today he mentions a “surprise” right off the top of the show. This is when Ashley and JP come out. I’m not sure exactly how they present it to the audience since Ashley & JP have already announced the sex of their baby publicly (a boy), but they do an ultrasound on stage. Yes, a real ultrasound. With the technician and the jelly on her belly and everything. JP actually cries during this. Ummmm, ok. I have to see this play out before I decide if this is completely unnecessary or just the stupidest thing they’ve ever pulled. We know they’re having a boy. They know they’re having a boy. Exactly why do they have an ultrasound done? I don’t get it. They made a little joke when the first picture of the ultrasound had Chris Harrison’s face on it. Hilarious. Side splitting laughter I tell ya’.

-Sarah Herron, Michelle Money, Graham Bunn, and Chris Bukowski (of course he was there) were in the audience to promote “Bachelor in Paradise” and are given a shout out during filming, but not interviewed. Although when the guys were out on stage, Chris Harrison introduced Chris Bukowski and Andi’s guys admitted they had no idea he had tried to get on the show until they watched the first episode (or read the spoiler a month in advance).

-When all the guys came out on stage, they were all wearing scarves that production had given them. Chris Harrison told them to take them off immediately. So they played up the running joke of the season which was, well, scarves.

-The guys who were there were every guy from episode 2 til last night. In case you forgot: Pat Jagodzinski, JJ O’Brien, Marquel Martin, Tasos Hernandez, Bradley Wisk, Brian Osborne, Dylan Petitt, Marcus Grodd, Brett Melnick, Andrew Poole, Chris Soules, Ron Worrell, Carl King, Cody Sattler, Nick Sutter and Craig Muhlbauer. Josh and Nick were not there obviously.

-Funny story about golfer Nick Sutter. He now has a full head of hair. They spent time talking about it and he admitted to having surgery before “Bachelorette” started filming, but the hair didn’t start sprouting until afterwards. Damn. That Miracle Grow actually works?

-The three guys brought up in the hot seat during the show were Marquel, Marcus, and Chris.

Marquel’s hot seat focused mainly on his race. Chris Harrison kept going back to the Josh/JJ/Andrew confrontation about what Andrew allegedly said about him and Ron at the first night rose ceremony. They actually showed the clip of when’s Ron’s name is announced and Andrew leaned into to JJ, but it was inaudible. Marquel also talked about how he was put into the friend zone right away. He even asked Andi later if his race had anything to do with it and she said no. She said he never kissed her. Marquel said he never tried to. Marquel also gave out cookies to the audience.

Andrew still denied that’s what he said. Said that the accusations have really affected his personal life. He accused JJ of stirring up trouble in front of the cameras and a few of the guys agreed that JJ handled it poorly. They didn’t side with Andrew but JJ got attacked pretty bad. Chris Harrison asked if Marquel still believed that Andrew said it. Marquel said that JJ is his boy and he has to believe JJ. Andrew got defensive but in the end kinda apologized to Marquel for the misunderstanding.

Then again what does JJ care? Yesterday he was hanging out in LA pretending to be receiving mouth love from Lucy. Bizarre.

Marcus’ time on the hot seat was apparently pretty short. Talked about how fast he opened up to Andi and that if he was on Paradise, could he see himself falling in love again. Total foreshadowing.

Chris’ hot seat they talked about how Andi said it was her favorite hometown and how America fell in love with the farmer. Then they staged a “mini date” as some woman from the audience pretended to interrupt Chris Harrison talking to Chris, so they brought her on stage so she could ask farmer Chris a question. Something about does he think he can find love in Iowa.

-When Andi came out, Chris Harrison had the envelope with all the guys from the lie detector group date and read the answers. He named the guys who didn’t lie (Chris and Brian), Marcus lied about sleeping with less than 20 women, Dylan lied about liking brunettes more than blondes, and Josh had two lies. Chris Harrison asked if they wanted to hear Josh’s lies even though he wasn’t there to defend himself. Brian jumped to Josh’s defense saying Andi shouldn’t do it and that Josh is a man of integrity, it wouldn’t be right, blah blah blah. Audience wanted Chris to read Josh’s lies but Andi said no.

-There were bloopers. One of Andi using nasal spray. Another one was of Andi filming an ITM and she hears someone peeing, flushing the toilet, then washing their hands.

-Obviously no announcement was made on the next “Bachelor” because we’re still two months away from filming beginning. I know some of you freaked out last Thursday when the picture of Nick with producer Bennett Graebner surfaced of them filming in Milwaukee. I don’t know why Nick was in Milwaukee filming last week, nor do I know why he was seen in LA this past weekend. Here’s what I can tell you though:

1. Nick was not visiting with Andi because she’s engaged to Josh and has seen him numerous times over the past two months in a safehouse in Atlanta the show has rented for them, and the weekend they spent in Mexico together while “Bachelor in Paradise” was filming.
2. Nick is not the next “Bachelor.”

So there. Do with that what you will. I guess those still doubting will officially get their answer on July 28th, but this has been a formality since May 9th. Sorry Nick fans. Don’t know what else to tell ya’ other than breathe. Everything will be ok.

  1. Why do the producers feature past people like Ashley/JP and Sean/Catherine? They are irrelevant and NO ONE CARES about them anymore.

  2. Hi Steve,

    I’m curious… did they do a tribute to Eric during the Men Tell All?

    M~

  3. If you have a question for Steve, you need to email him and he will answer it on Thursday. He does not answer questions from the comments, which he claims not to read. Yeah, right…

  4. My favorite couple, JP and Ashley had an ultrasound on tv??? Really guys? No!!!!!

    I think Andi’s bikini padding was simply a case of too much nipple for tv.

    I searched out Josh’s twitter account last night and found his recently posted shirtless, posed and flexed picture of him “playing with his dog.” I’m sorry….that kind of egotistical display of actually having someone take a picture while you pretend you’re in the middle of something (while shirtless and flexed) is just so gross to me.

    I’ve been reading Sharleen Joynt’s blog and while I find it entertaining, she really prides herself on being “different” and they “didn’t know what to do with me…..” so naturally she has affection for Josh who is also a “panda” like her.

    Listen Sharleen, you went on the show. ‘Nuff said.

    I am in love with Chris the farmer. What a good and decent midwestern man (he seems to be).

  5. I’m thinking the whole ultrasound thing is going to announce that Ashley and JP are having twins. Why else would they do something so tacky?

  6. ***CORRECTION…..I meant Sharleen has affection for Nick — a deep, tortured, intellectual, misunderstood, not always liked, portrayed unfairly, worldly, cultured, spiritual, different type of contestant….just like her.

  7. So JJ must have taken quite a beating during the Men Tell All. There are no photos of JJ with the other guys posted (at least from what I searched) on his own Twitter or Instagram. None of the other guys’ Twitter or Instagram accounts photos of MTA celebrations include JJ either.

  8. @mariet If Reality Steve never reads the messages posted here, then I might as well find some other message board to read and post.

  9. Steve does read emails that are sent to him, but he’s maintained for years that he doesn’t read these postings. Whether he does or not, this area has always just been for the readers to discuss things amongst themselves.

    He’s said that in his column about as many times as he’s answered why the driveways are wet…*LOL*

  10. Many claim they don’t read the posts to their blogs. But they ALL do. Nonetheless, RS will keep up this little charade, for whatever reason. So, don’t expect an answer. And if you post on a blog to get an answer from the blogger, well, I don’t know what to say. I’ve seen bloggers occasionally respond to posts, but it’s pretty uncommon. I mean, this isn’t Facebook.

  11. realdeal..Steve claims he doesn’t read the messages here, but he does have someone who does. So..if anything “interesting” pops up, it’s reported back to Steve and he’ll investigate. If you have questions, and want answers from him..send him an e-mail, and he will reply. Easy-peasy!

  12. @bigfatwoman – “I searched out Josh’s twitter account last night and found his recently posted shirtless, posed and flexed picture of him “playing with his dog.” I’m sorry….that kind of egotistical display of actually having someone take a picture while you pretend you’re in the middle of something (while shirtless and flexed) is just so gross to me.”

    I agree. Gross!! And did anyone else notice Josh walking with Chris H. to the rose ceremony this week? Looks like his big chest and arms are weighting him down, he looked hunched over or crooked or something. Sorry ladies, but I find him unattractive and gross.

  13. Just a thought what if Nick’s producer visit pic was staged? To distract or make ppl speculate? Also I was thinking he could film a segment for ATFR and decide he didn’t want to go live? Is that even possible no idea.

    Can I just say Andi’s ex was uh nowhere near these guys in terms of looks from this season? Far cry from her F4. Just saying.

  14. Realdeal, YOU may not care about past contestants but there are tons and tons of Bachelor/ette fans out there who do. If no one cared about them once their seasons ended these people wouldn’t have the tens of thousands of social media followers that they have. For myself if I never see Sean and Catherine again that’ll be just fine by me, but I actually like seeing Ashley and JP.

    Someone needs to keep me from reading the millions of jackass comments on Facebook criticizing Andi for sending Chris home. What the heck is wrong with people? It could not have been more obvious that those two had zero chemistry, and that Iowa farm life was not for city girl Andi. The woman is gracious enough to send him home BEFORE the overnight (unlike most past leads including goldenboy Sean), not put him through the rose ceremony, and yet she is completely attacked on social media. It’s mind boggling and I wish I could understand people!

  15. Right on, vessel! I too like to see Ashley and JP, although, I’m not sure if I like the idea of her having an ultrasound on national TV..that’s really kind of tacky, but hey, to each their own I suppose. You know, realdeal, you made a very good point saying you should perhaps find another message board. I personally think that might be best. You’re pretty negative about how this one works, so..see ya!

  16. I don’t like Josh, either. He’s greasy and smarmy looking. I like Nick much better. And Chris even better. I don’t care for Andi, though, either. But I always watch.

  17. Bigfatwoman — agree about Ashley and JP and the ultrasound. They’re my favorite couple and I’m hoping it won’t come off as tacky as it sounds. AND….. I can think of many things I”d like to do with Chris on that tractor. mmmmmm

  18. @strick432 So if you don’t like Andi, and you DO like Nick, then you should be happy that Josh & Andi are together, right?

    Because you wouldn’t want somebody you like (Nick) to be with somebody you don’t like (Andi).

    Is that it?

    I also like seeing happy young couples like Ashley & Jp…..Levelheaded, mature and accomplished. It definitely shows that anything is possible from these shows.

  19. I actually really like Nick! I thought he and Andi had a real genuine intellectual and physical connection and I am really bummed that she chose big, dumb Josh instead of smart, awkward Nick.

    I adore Chris, but at the same time, I am so glad Andi was kind enough to send him packing because it is so clear that they are not right for each other. Chris will be the perfect Bachelor next season, he is humble, genuine, sweet and doesn’t have a dishonest or narcissistic bone in his body. And I really think he will find a nice farm girl to settle down with and end up really happy from this whole process.

    In that second youtube vid that RS posted, when Nick said “it’s actually happened once….ummmm, it was the guy with the girl. The guy changed his mind. They’re actually (inaudible) and now they’re still married.” I think it is clear he was talking about Molly and Jason, and was alluding to the fact that Andi might possibly change her mind when she starts a relationship with Josh and realises she should have chosen Nick, which is exactly what Jason Mesnick did.

  20. I can’t believe all the negativity towards Andi! I happen to think she’s one of their better choices. IMO she’s very bright and has some depth, unlike some past leads. I also think the men were a little better this time around too. I’m thoroughly enjoying Andi’s season! I am just amazed at the terribly mean comments about everything from who she chooses to keep to the shape of her mouth.

    It cracks me up every season when people get angry because a favorite is sent home, like it’s their decision, and not a highly personal choice only the Bach can make!

    They sure were reaching for a villain edit this season. Nick might be a little quirky, but he’s certainly no Wes or Bentley!

  21. Karynr that is exactly what I was saying, and I totally agree! The amount of bashing Andi is getting is unreal, and imo totally undeserved. I like her a lot, and I find her season the most entertaining since Ashley’s. I need to stop reading her twitter, instagraam, and Facebook comments because frankly the stupid, childish comments make me kind of sick. Why do people think they know what is best for her? From watching a heavily edited TV show? Are people in her head? It truly boggles my mind that I see her send someone home, even if it is someone I really like, and I always think “well she knows what’s best and she has to live with the guy, not me, so I’m sure this was the right decision” and then read people’s comments I realize I am in the minority! I swear this show sucks any rational thinking right out of people’s brains. EX: “Andi you as$hole, you just made the biggest mistake of your life and I am now boycotting this show!” WHAT??? and yeah all the criticism of her mouth shape is ridiculous.

  22. Nick reminds me of someone who would be on Jersey Shore. Spray tan, big muscles, meat head brain. That’s Josh. Maybe an intelligent, well read guy would threaten Andi. I guess she likes dumb, superficial jocks and their superficial, plastic families.

  23. I noticed Josh’s tweet with him playing with his dog too. Someone commented that they didn’t understand why he was showcasing his body if he was engaged. The person’s comment was sort of on the rude side and I noticed only moments later it was GONE and only nice comments were left. I guess he’s a little sensitive.

  24. kaynyr and vessel: Two ladies after my own heart. Thank you. We may be in the minority, but at least we’re not alone.

  25. Vessel and Athena, sometimes when I read the mean comments I fell very well-adjusted and happily non-judgmental compared to a lot of these people! Not to mention the level of ignorance in a lot of the comments! Andi doesn’t have control over the shape or movements of her mouth…..Andi doesn’t make the major decisions on much of anything on the show……Why should Andi keep or send someone home because you in the audience think she’s making a wrong decision? Gues what….it’s her choice, not yours….and last but not least, why do so many people have a problem with a strong, spirited woman who is so much more entertaining than most of the past leads? I don’t read Andi’s twitter or Facebook, or anyone elses for that matter (except friends and family), but do read all the comments on Jen Frase, Sharleen, I Hate Green Beans, Kristen Baldwin and a couple others, and the hate makes me think there are a lot of mean people out there who like to take pot shots from behind their computer. I find that somewhat cowardly. I wonder if that why there’s such a bullying problem, most recently with young people on social media? A lot of the people making these mean comments probably pass along this terrible practice to their kids, who then go on to bully others. I find that mean and ignorant, which I see a lot of on the boards this season.

  26. Basic grammar, RS. You might need to hire a proof-reader.

    ‘Someone might want to tell him it’s ok to where pants that extend down past your ankles.’

    ‘Even though their isn’t a resort in America that uses actual keys anymore, we still feel the need to pretend like this key opens up the door to your love palace tonight.’

  27. RS, do you have any idea where the location of the engagement takes place in the DR?

  28. Am i the only one wondering if he stole those pants from Andi? Seriously…..wow…..
