The Bachelorette 10 - Andi

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

-Andi and Josh’s 1-on-1 date is up next. Since Andi needs to be reassured the guys like her so frequently, this is where she’s at with Josh. She doesn’t know. Andi: “The other guys are more open and progressing more and tell me how they’re feeling…deep down he could be the one that breaks my heart.” Yes, this is called a storyline. Even if you don’t read the spoilers, everyone can clearly see this whole season that Andi is in to Josh. And she was from pretty early on. But no relationship in the history of this show has ever gone smoothly from episode 1 to the final episode, because they have a story to tell. And all stories have conflict. So Andi’s conflict with Josh, whether made up or not (at least for TV’s sake), is “the other guys are opening up more than him so maybe he doesn’t really like me.” This was fed to Andi in every ITM she filmed, and they made sure that on this date, his lack of communication was in the forefront. They have to put doubt in the audience’s mind about everyone, and this is no different. And oh yeah, throw in a geese parade so we can see geese walk in a straight line while a dudes play the bagpipes. What, you couldn’t have Andi & Josh feeding them breadcrumbs? What other purpose to geese serve other than being able to say “Aflac?”

-Andi and Josh sit down for some sandwiches and for all those people who inevitably ask me every single season, “Why don’t they ever show the contestants eating,” two things: 1) They just did last night 2) Now you know why they rarely do. Josh trying to talk to Andi with a bite of a sandwich in his mouth really doesn’t make good television. Andi: “Are you good at being vulnerable?” Oh boy, here we go again. Tell me you like me. TELL ME, TELL ME, TELL ME!!!! Josh: “This is tough…blah blah blah…” Andi: “I wish Josh would be more open with his feelings.” And I wish you’d shut your pie hole about this. Maybe cuz he’s been on two dates with you total he doesn’t feel like calling you his future wife just yet. Maybe since he probably doesn’t even know your middle name yet, he’d rather not tell the world on national television he loves you. And maybe, just maybe, he’ll always harbor a little ill will towards you since you went to LSU and he’s a UGA grad. That’s going to make for some interesting Saturday’s come this fall. Granted, I’ll take Les Miles over Mark Richt any day of the week and twice on Saturdays, but I wonder if these two will speak to each other on LSU/UGA day. However, I just looked at this season’s schedule, and this is a year they don’t play each other. Hmmm…maybe Josh and Andi can actually make it after all? Ha ha

-For the night portion of their date, they have dinner and Andi grills Josh some more trying to find out if he actually likes her more than a grade school crush. I think at this point Andi should just send him a note that says, “Do you like me” which a box to check “yes” or “no.” Seems more appropriate at this time. And in return, Josh should send Andi a questionnaire that says if she were to ever do it, who would it be with? I just wanna see if she writes down “Jake Ryan.” Sorry. Momentary mental lapse there. But imagine if she did, and one of the other guys randomly got a hold of the questionnaire. If Nick did, he’d probably scratch out Jake Ryan’s name and put “Nick Viall.” Back to our regularly scheduled program. Where were we? Oh yeah. Andi brow beating Josh into telling her he likes her. Josh: “I want you to myself…don’t like you talking to other guys.” They bring up both living in Atlanta and Andi says, “Is it too good to be true?…It makes me wonder…does he not feel it?” Man, talk about fishing for compliments. It’s never ending with this chick. I think that’s where some people think the spoiler is wrong, just because it’s too easy these two are together given their proximity to each other. You’re over thinking it. It’s the exact reason why Andi would pick him. Most of these relationships don’t work out because not only do you barely know the person, but you immediately start out in a long distance relationship that you have to keep private from the time filming ends, til the time the finale airs. For the “Bachelor” that’s 3 ½ months, for “Bachelorette” it’s a little less than 2 months. So yeah, having someone you know you won’t have to uproot your life for is probably a huge factor. Certainly was for Andi.

-Josh: “This is very serious…I am falling in love with you…It’s very important.” Everyone, starts the bells and whistles and get the parade marching, Josh just told Andi what she’s been pulling teeth to get out of him all episode. Everything is right in the world again. We may now continue on. Josh says he’s falling in love with Andi, and now she got her wish. Now it doesn’t matter that that mute Marcus told her since she doesn’t care about him. Or that Nick overdoes it by telling her every chance she can get. Not a big deal to her since the guy she wanted to make sure liked her has just told her he’s falling in love with her. It’s going to be one hell of a night in the fantasy suite. I think they should have a fireworks show going on outside their bedroom just to commemorate the moment. But in the meantime, lets play out these last few episodes pretending that she doesn’t want to bear Josh’s children right here right now. You know, some people still live in fantasy land and think it’s not Josh. Oh well. You can only lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink. Or whatever that saying is. To show their love, Josh and Andi get a “private” concert by American Young. Although, it wasn’t all that private with some local Belgians joining in too. I’m sure they didn’t have a clue what was going on which makes it that much more funny.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
