The Bachelorette 10 - Andi

The “Bachelorette” Andi Episode 7 Recap Including Tabloid News, Deleted Scenes, & #YOPO

We are getting to that point in the season where it’s down to the final four guys, and the tabloids will start ramping up their coverage digging up whatever dirt they can. Take today’s story for example on Chris where they report he’s been arrested 13 times. Granted, none of these arrests are remotely anything the average person would give two sh**s about, but since it’s a tabloid, they have to make it known. Kinda like how they embellished Kat getting written up back in college for underage drinking when she wasn’t even drinking. I mean, read that story. Exactly what “criminal” behavior did Chris have in any of those so-called arrests. He lives in Bumblef**k, Iowa. What else is there to do other than drink, have sex, and run into a little trouble on occasion? Whoa, he went 8 miles and hour over the speed limit in a 55 mph zone? Lock him up! This is so ridiculous and silly, yet they treat it like it’s some major headline. Please. Tell me when one of these guys gets on a plane and gives away the ending to the whole season. That’s when…oh wait, never mind.

Not sure what’s a more ridiculous story, those 13 “arrests” Chris had, or the one that ran last week about Andi being pregnant. In case you didn’t see the cover of “In Touch” last week, here it was:


The funny part about all of it is how many people it actually fooled. Do you know how many people emailed or tweeted this story at me to ask if it’s true? More than you think. However, as is the case every season, the headline is misleading. If you actually read the story part of it, nowhere in there does it say the words “Andi is pregnant.” It just alludes to it, and talks about how she had two overnight dates, and what if she got pregnant and it wasn’t from the guy she chose. They’re just looking for a reaction and they succeeded. But yeah, Andi’s not pregnant. Not only because the story never says that she is, but Andi even addressed it on Twitter. So we can move on from that nonsense now.

“Bachelor in Paradise” wrapped up last week. I will have your episode-by-episode spoilers shortly. One thing I tweeted about this weekend that you can keep your eye out for is you’ll start to see a lot of the contestants from the show start hashtagging their tweets with #YOPO. What’s that you ask? It stands for “You Only Paradise Once.” I guess that’s their thing. Deal with it because you’re gonna see it a lot come August.

Wanna see a video of Jef Holm drunk hanging out with a 21 year old? I never thought you’d ask (he appears at the 5:20 mark)

This was posted on her account from Saturday night. So apparently Blair Fowler is a YouTube Beauty Guru. Her main channel is juicystar07. Her and her sister Elle make their living off creating videos about makeup. They have “written” two books and design cell phone covers with Cellairis. They are from Tennessee but moved to LA when they got Youtube famous (I had a reader tell me this). Congrats to them. So my question is, what is she doing hanging around Jef Holm late at night drunk in a cab then a hot tub? Hey, she’s 21. Right up his alley.

In news that isn’t really news but someone thought it was, Drew Kenney and Amy Long are now officially a couple. Wow, that’s so great. I was hoping to hear that announcement someday. After all the sleepless nights I was having wondering about those two, I’m glad they finally decided to make sure they ran to an outlet to tell them. Amy lasted two episodes on Juan Pablo’s season, but is more known for banging Brooks down in Florida for a few days this past New Year’s Eve when he came to visit her and they double dated with Alexis Morgado and Michael Garofola. Pictures were posted on this site shortly thereafter. Man, Drew really seems to enjoy taking Brooks’ seconds, doesn’t he? Good luck you two. You’ll need it.

For those wondering how they were going to handle Eric Hill’s death on the show, Chris Harrison addressed it today in his blog and said you’ll see all of it. Just a quick reminder of the timeline and how it happened with the show:

Sunday, April 20th: Eric in a paragliding accident in Utah; Josh Murray’s hometown date.
Tuesday, April 22nd: Eric’s accident first made public by the news; Marcus Grodd’s hometown date in Dallas.
Wednesday, April 23rd: Eric officially pronounced dead; day of the hometown date rose ceremony.

So the quick clip we saw during the preview last night show’s Chris telling everyone that Eric has died. That was obviously during the day on April 23rd before they all got dressed and ready for the rose ceremony. I’m glad we’re going to see it all. Impossible for them to have left that out. Of course everyone wants to see Andi and the guy’s reaction to what happened. One of the few smart decisions this show has made.

And the ratings are in from last night. They’re up about 500k viewers from last week, and .1 in the 18-49 demo. However, the most embarrassing thing is this show is drawing more than “24,” which has been excellent this season. I will now go flying out of my window, Margot Al Harazi style.

    Love Blair..been watching her videos for years. Was very surprised to see Jef in her vlog. Doesn’t seem like someone she would hang with. I’m sure she’ll appreciate you posting her video. More views, more $$ and subscribers.

    Nick seems like he’s getting the Michelle Money edit. The overly competitive, in it to win it only, edit. Basically you have three losers with no game on a group date with Nick, who definitely has game. He brings it, the others don’t. Nick wins. What did they expect? Even they admit, he’s beating them. But, even worse, Brian, Dylan and Chris honestly do nothing to help themselves. They’re irrelevant. So, who’s fault is that? The rest just comes off as jealousy and very un-manly jealously too.

    Now, is Nick arrogant? Playing the game? Annoying? Sure, he is. But it’s a TV program setup as a competition. What’s he supposed to do, act like the “boring 3” and just sit and let it all happen? If I was Brian, Dylan or Chris, I’d be taking a lesson and amping up my game. Otherwise, the beatings just continue. The lesson for guys as we get older is this…. if you don’t want to keep getting your butt kicked (in anything), get better. Whining because someone else is better, at whatever, isn’t going to get you anywhere in life.

    I also would love a copy of Courtney’s book and will definitely return it to the owner. My local library won’t be getting it, and I was really embarrassed requesting it!

    And is it me or is Steve obsessed with the Cheetos thing? So Nick ate some on the plane, is it that hilarious? I’m obviously completely missing what is so funny about it.

  8. c104

    July 1, 2014 at 11:47 AM

    Vessel, yeah, Steve’s totally worn that one out. Guess he must have a product deal with them. Every time he mentions them in his blog, kachink.

    So Chris got arrested for driving 5 miles over the speed limit? I’m dying laughing right now ????.Idc i still love Chris.

    I feel like RS doesn’t even make an effort to be funny anymore. I get that the spoilers are his bread and butter, but he used to make me laugh so hard I cried. Now it is just two dozen references to cheetos or something equivalent. C’mon, dude!

  11. anonime

    July 1, 2014 at 12:05 PM

    I even had too ask what’s up w the cheetos. not funny, give it a rest . Nick doesn’t bother me like he does everyone else. I find him amusing.

  12. purplesunsets

    July 1, 2014 at 12:06 PM

    Ha I feel old I got that WWF reference to that wrestler. Funny that one too.

    I’m on the fence with the Nick thing. Like it could be producer edit bad edit also there could be more truth to it. He could be everyone’s bff outside now with social media and the shout out s every now and then #teamnick. But like RS said the Bach world on social media who knows.
    Sure he is a go getter confident whatnot you snooze you loose right? This season definitely drama between the guys clique wise.

    Is there anyway to see the deleted scenes if you’re outside the US? Been curious on those.. Personally love Cheese Puffs better but I still find the Cheetos jokes funny at this point.

  13. purplesunsets

    July 1, 2014 at 12:15 PM

    Also it feels odd that the tweets, shout outs, defense of self by nick and his “team” preempted this episode explosion well as the villain edits came. Yes I stalked the dates of the tweets it doesn’t add up. Did like they know he was getting a bad edit or had an idea? Seemed so.

  14. ashleigh11

    July 1, 2014 at 12:24 PM

    My favourite moment last night was when Andi and Nick were playing This or That and she turned it around and asked him “Big or Small?” Might as well get the facts before committing to the Fantasy Suite. *high five, girl!*

  15. angelfish

    July 1, 2014 at 12:49 PM

    I don’t mind the Cheetos commentary. And I LOVE the reference to Jake Ryan, as I’m a huge John Hughes fan. Poor “Jake” never did much after that.

    I still like Chris, but the DUI and other alcohol-related infractions definitely paint a negative picture. No matter how far out of your sleepy town you live, mixing alcohol with your drive is stupid and dangerous. But also according to the article, Chris has kept himself in check for a few years, so apparently he’s wised up.

  16. rob22

    July 1, 2014 at 12:50 PM

    Chris seems like he was quite the hell raiser in college…. it didn’t seem like he was a quick learner either. No surprise there. Still, remind me to never have a beer and drive 40 mph in a 35 mph zone next time I’m in bumf**k Iowa.

  17. rob22

    July 1, 2014 at 12:53 PM

    My question about Chris being The Bachelor is less around his hell raising college years, and more around his personality-less 30s years. Stupid looks only carry you so far, unless you’re Will Ferrell.

  18. meredith27

    July 1, 2014 at 1:23 PM

    I think if Andi had picked Nick they would have edited differently and Josh would come out looking like the villain ….I’m just starting to realize from reading spoilers and watching how much editing controls how people are perceived …I guess if you truly do no wrong they can’t make you into a villain but maybe not. So…for me it makes it all so fake and not worth watching really.
    It’s really annoying reading andi’s blog …as if she can share anything real …waste of time !!!!!

  19. mariet

    July 1, 2014 at 3:43 PM

    @oyoung1117– Totally agree. I do LOVE the spoilers, but that’s it. The recaps of Sharleen Joynt, Kristen Baldwin (EW), and Lincee Ray (I Hate Green Beans) are much more entertaining.

  20. newmoonmg

    July 1, 2014 at 3:56 PM

    After having read Courtney Robertson’s book I am now more convinced than ever that Nick is getting a bad edit, as I am sure she did. She was the first to admit she wasn’t the chummiest of people, but some of her “cracks” were made in a joking playful manner and the edit did not reflect that. So while Nick is not my fav, I am sure he is not THAT bad or aloof.

  21. ksrsfan

    July 1, 2014 at 4:17 PM

    Nick gives me the creeps. I do not find him attractive AT ALL! So I don’t care if he is getting a bad edit, he is freaky.

    Okay, I will admit that I don’t live in the city, but what is up with the guys and the scarves???? I have never seen a guy wear a scarf like that in real life, and last night 3 of the guys were wearing them when they got to Belgium. Now, it did take me a while to appreciate a guy wearing a pink shirt, but I don’t think I will ever like that scarf look. Kinda emasculating, no?

    I am interested in reading Courtney’s book, just to learn more of the antics the producers play trying to make this show entertaining. Too bad we will likely never see a former contestant do a real “tell-all”. I love to hear the dirt about this show! Thanks Steve for all the info in and insight you bring us. Definitely much more entertaining!

  22. bigfatwoman

    July 1, 2014 at 4:25 PM

    The Cheetos references are in the same tired category as the “I got this spoiler right, but people are going to doubt it” drone that never seems to end. We got it dude.

    Teeny tiny Jef Holm looks pretty pathetic in that video. He really thinks he is something.

    Nick is clearly getting the bad edit but I also find him to have such a squirrel-y vibe that he comes off as more teacher’s pet than sexy assertive man. He does nothing for me sexually…..unless I wanted to screw Eddie Haskell….then maybe.

    Andi is fine but she bores me and takes herself way too seriously. She tweeted something last week to the tune of “I find it ironic reading the tweets and blogs that bite the very hand that fed them.” Really girl? Gimme a break. Get over yourself. You better make sure you have clean hands before you point fingers.

  23. lcs85

    July 1, 2014 at 4:25 PM

    I thought Nick said he watched ALL the previous seasons of the Bachelorette before coming on the show. Did he say he only watched last season? I was picturing Nick binge watching the show for 4 straight days.

    @ksrsfan People wear scarves when its cold out. I don’t see whats emasculating about not wanting to be cold.

  24. lcs85

    July 1, 2014 at 4:32 PM

    Forgot to add…

    What was up with Coach and Dylan’s outfits on the group date? Its the last date before hometown dates, I would think they would want to make a good impression. A zip up hoodie and whatever that was Coach was wearing made them both look like they left straight from the gym to go on this date. Not surprised that they are the two that didn’t get roses…

  25. karynr

    July 1, 2014 at 4:35 PM

    I don’t find Nick creepy, but also don’t find him attractive.

    vessel…I asked my library too, but wasn’t embarrassed at all. I think it’s funny. Plus, I’m in Scottsdale where Courtney is from, so I’m sure I’m not the first person who’s asked.

    You know how they used the On the Wings of Love song for Jake’s season? I think they should use the Green Acres theme song for Chris’s.

  26. ugasara13

    July 1, 2014 at 6:52 PM

    As a UGA grad, I thank you for the added SEC football commentary in this weeks recap. Also – wonder if Josh’s little brother beating LSU last season comes up?

  27. grimmace1997

    July 1, 2014 at 8:04 PM

    Chris pulled Andi aside to kiss her and she says “he just planted one on me… GO farmer”…wonder who scripted that….

  28. freeasabird

    July 1, 2014 at 8:39 PM

    Re: Scarfs – Chris H. (I think, as it was a retweet) said it was really cold and production had to go out and buy a bunch of scarves and other cold weather gear.

    I find Nick cute in an Eddie Haskell way. (Thanks BFW!)

    Green Acres – yes, karynr – perfect song!

    I am not looking forward to Chris’ season. I don’t care how rich he is 😉 His suits always look too small. I find nothing attractive about him. Being 40 miles from the nearest “real” town (Waterloo, Iowa) does not appeal to me. I’m suburban born and raised and hated visiting my cousins that lived on a farm. My sister loved it. So, different strokes.

    I wish it was Marcus as the next Bachelor. He’d be easier on my eyes. Brian is probably the best of this bunch as far as being genuine but could not carry the show. Dylan? Nah, I hate sad back stories.

    I watched the video chat live last Thursday. I liked how quick Steve was with the answers. It seemed to me as if half the people there had never read his column.

    I feel that Nick’s plan was to make it to the final four and hopefully be the next Bachelor. Too bad, Cheeto dude, that didn’t work out for ya’. I think more and more contestants have that in mind as each season goes on. Ali started it, Kacie B tried it, by coming back on Ben’s season and I forget who else I felt about in that way.

  29. purplesunsets

    July 2, 2014 at 2:25 AM

    I think I have to agree with @freeasabird it seems Nick had a strategy going in whether to play the game, win Andi, or be popular off it etc not certain. But I think he knew he could get bad edits on this show and seeing his damage control online before add up.

    Hands down best part of the episode is the end credits. Brian and the pickle. That was funny.

  30. karynr

    July 2, 2014 at 6:08 AM

    I’m pretty neutral on Chris being the new Bachelor. I can’t decide if I find him good looking or not. All I keep thinking is, if he drinks or eats too much, he’s going to end up with three chins. His face looks puffy to me, and with age it will only get worse.

    I think Marcus is the best looking of the bunch. I thought Dylan was good looking, but between the greasy ponytail and not washing his hands, I no longer find him as attractive.

  31. rob22

    July 2, 2014 at 6:12 AM

    Let’s imagine the possible entertaining scenarios for Chris’ season. (Really, Chris? Doh!)

    Yes, the Green Acres theme holds not only for the song, but for wooing city girls to come live in East Podunk, Iowa. The girls discover that the winter weather hovers around zero in Iowa with a constant 25 mph wind to spice things up. Watch as Tierra returns and proclaims her love for waking up at 5:00 a.m. and cleaning up pig sh*t. Well, Green Acres was really popular….. in the 60s. Ummmm…. no.

    OK, scenario 2. Chris gets to choose from 25 Daisy Duke wanna bes. Most girls are graduates of the University of Florida & own only jeans shorts & tank tops (regional joke for those not from the south). Emily shows up unannounced dressed in a plaid shirt, denim mini skirt and a Caterpillar baseball cap trying to get Chris to go on a hay ride with her. Hmmmm. The Dukes of Hazzard was really popular….. in the 80s. No.

    Scenario 3 – IDK. I guess they’ll have to come up with something. Chris’ “personality” sure isn’t going to carry the day. I guess they could get him a 12 pack at the QuickTrip, put him behind the wheel of a vintage GTO & tell him to go real fast & avoid the cops. Then follow the action from a helicopter. It could happen.

  32. texan

    July 2, 2014 at 6:29 AM

    I think Nick is actually the most attractive and the only one of the entire batch of guys I would’ve had any interest in.

    Chris is so unattractive that I can’t imagine any women seriously swooning over that Haley Joel Osment pinched face. It’s like when they tried to make us believe a bunch of beautiful women could actually be attracted to Ben.

  33. Sunnyside422

    July 2, 2014 at 9:26 AM

    Isn’t it amazing how the Bachelor leads have become so boring and unattractive! And Chris will join the group. He seems nice but exciting or interesting…not. If I signed up for his season and then realized he was the bachelor, I’d bail, no matter how much I wanted TV exposure.

    Nope Nick is not attractive at all. Mumble Mouth doesn’t do it for me. Even though I feel producers have prodded and pointed him into situations that resulted in the scenes we witness with the other men, he just can’t keep that smarmy look off his face. Will be epic when he is sent packing. Wonder if he’ll get all pissy as Ben did when Ashley dumped him!

  34. Athena

    July 2, 2014 at 10:00 AM

    I enjoyed watching Chris in that deleted dancing (?) scene this week. He clearly seemed to be the ringleader of the guys and, unlike the rest of them, he had some moves. I think he may have more personality than we’ve been shown so far. Maybe some of it will be shown on the hometown date. I can’t remember what RS told us about what happens during the date, but I’m picturing he and Andi shooting bluerocks out in a cornfield.

    And Rob, if you bring Emily back, they could go out and shoot guns too – remember how surprisingly good she was at it?

    Then again, maybe Chris isn’t a hunter, and it would be better to have Andi and Emily going out to shoot guns without a guy.

  35. anonime

    July 2, 2014 at 11:17 AM

    I know RS has explained why they keep recycling contestants , usually # 3 , as the lead but I would love to see someone new. Wouldn’t stop me from watching, just the opposite. Chris is a bore. They must’ve seen someone from all their castings who caught their eye as a future lead. I know, winning formula blah blah blah. Anyone else here tired of the recycling & ready for some new leads?

  36. crossedmymind

    July 2, 2014 at 11:29 AM

    Find Nicks personality and looks unattractive-he comes across as way too into himself as opposed to confident or self-assured. Not my type at all. I’m a Raylan Givens kind of gal though married to a man that looks like Kevin Bacon (told as much all the time) but better looking with striking and bigger electric blue eyes.

    Noticed the scarves too. Dudes, women don’t want to share their clothing accessories with their guy. Those weren’t masculine scarves-they were light and fluffy with feminine design patterns-no way they would keep anybody the least bit warmer. If a dude is wearing a winter coat, a masculine scarf is OK.

  37. vessel

    July 2, 2014 at 11:38 AM

    Didn’t Steve say he would be posting the Bachelor in Paradise episode by episode spoilers today (Wednesday)?

  38. freeasabird

    Three part interview with “Coach,” He talks about the final 4. It’s at www dot abc27 dot com / video? clipId = 10325086

    Take out the spaces and add the dots. This is part 3 but there are links to the other 2 videos. He seems like a super guy and is best friends with Nick etc.

    My last link for deleted scenes at abc dot com never showed up 🙁

  39. purplesunsets

    July 2, 2014 at 11:53 PM

    Yowza I just saw the deleted scene from Wetpaint.. That Nick bullseye thing on Josh? Very telling. The dance sequence seemed funny, I think Chris may have personality just not shown as much. Kind of reminds me of Chris Siegfried from Des’ season they didnt show much personality just poetry but turns out from hearing him on Jason and Molly’s podcast quite funny.

    Thanks @freeasasabird for that link I was looking for one. Yeah there seems to be a divide in the house a #teamnick aka brian and jj and the neutral other half. I think I saw on IG on the popular page one time Brian calling Nick his BFF? Sharleen seems to be solid #teamnick from her blog.

  40. LynnMJ

    July 3, 2014 at 9:07 AM

    I guess creepy, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder, cause Nick absolutely creeps me out. When he puts his head down and his eyes look up, he couldn’t look any more smarmy.

  41. serapa

    July 3, 2014 at 12:40 PM

    Late commenter….busy with Canadian long weekend….

    I think Nick is immature, a narcissist and fake. I agree with the guys on this one.

    Chris will be a boring bachelor…yawn…heehaw…

    I also think that Josh is a very good match for Andi. No one else see this? They are great together. I think these two have a really good chance.
