The Bachelorette 10 - Andi

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

We are getting down to the nitty gritty. We’re almost there. Coming down the final stretch. Heading home. And any other cliche you can possibly think of. Included in this week’s recap are the Nick videos I posted the day the first episode aired. Since we are now officially down to the final two, I just wanted to either refresh your memory on exactly what Nick said two days after the final rose ceremony ended, or for some of you who’ve asked over Twitter and email, giving you a chance to see them for the first time. Not sure how if you follow this site you hadn’t seen those videos yet since they’ve been up for two months now, but apparently some of you hadn’t. Probably why you never understood any of the Cheetos references. Regardless, those videos are up along with being transcribed. Also, on the last page of today’s post are your “Men Tell All” spoilers. Usually a very formulaic show, but they did do a couple things this season they hadn’t done before, including one “surprise” (as Chris Harrison referred to) that still has me scratching my head. I need to see this play out to understand why this was done.

Marcus had his conference call with the media last week after getting eliminated and basically said a whole bunch of nothing. However, the funniest part of his interview is that the awful site actually took his answers at face value, and since he said he hasn’t been doing much since he got back, they took that to mean he’s not engaged to Lacy. Wow. Are these people that stupid? Did they honestly think he was gonna say in the interview, “Oh yeah, after I left the show, I went and did ‘Bachelor in Paradise,’ I met a great girl, and now we’re engaged.” Idiots. Marcus wasn’t even “officially” confirmed by ABC as being on “Bachelor in Paradise” until today. Nice reporting, Rumor Fix. Your credibility takes a shot with every story you post. Marcus and Lacy got engaged at the end of “Bachelor in Paradise.” Everyone will see that in a couple months.

Hey everyone, Renee Oteri is pregnant! Whoa, wait a minute. You mean the girl that got home from filming Juan Pablo’s season in the first week of November, reconnected with an ex sometime there after, got engaged the last week of February then had a shotgun wedding with no family members there on March 21st is now announcing less than 4 months later she’s a little over 3 months pregnant? Man, if I didn’t know any better…you get the point. Called this when she went off and got married three weeks after getting engaged. Can see right through this one.

Ratings are in and the “Bachelorette” dipped a tad from last week. What’s most embarrassing is that it still outdrew the season finale of “24,” which was excellent. Everyone should be embarrassed of themselves that they care more about Nick’s fairy tale books than Jack Bauer samurai swording a dude’s head off. You will never be forgiven. And as Jack so eloquently put it last night, “Your entire world will come apart and you’ll never see it coming.” That’s how I feel about the 6.64 million people who watched the “Bachelorette” last night. I hope Jack Bauer finds you. I’m excluded from that because, well, it’s my job and I have to watch.

Don’t forget in less than 2 weeks now (13 days to be exact), I’ll be in Armonk, NY at Fortina’s for a finale viewing party. Already over 60 people confirmed to be there, and we’re still taking more. A portion of the tickets purchased will go towards in honor of Eric Hill. If you haven’t purchased a ticket yet, or just want to donate, head over to this link and do so before July 28th. Thanks to everyone who’s coming out that night and looking forward to meeting everyone.

    Did they do a tribute to Eric at the MTA?

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

    Hi Steve,

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

    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…

    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).

    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?

  7. bigfatwoman

    July 15, 2014 at 4:54 PM

    ***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.

    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.

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

    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*

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

  15. vessel

    July 16, 2014 at 11:28 AM

    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!

  16. Dianne

    July 16, 2014 at 11:47 AM

    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!

  17. strick432

    July 16, 2014 at 12:20 PM

    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.

  18. jazzmine

    July 16, 2014 at 1:14 PM

    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

  19. angelfish

    July 16, 2014 at 1:32 PM

    @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.

    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.

    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!

  22. vessel

    July 16, 2014 at 3:54 PM

    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.

    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.

  24. meredith27

    July 16, 2014 at 5:42 PM

    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.

  25. Athena

    July 17, 2014 at 7:16 AM

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

  26. karynr

    July 17, 2014 at 8:26 AM

    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.

    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.’

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

  29. aprilmay18

    July 21, 2014 at 9:32 PM

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