When Andi Dorfman made it to the final 3 on last season of The Bachelor, the fantasy suite turned into a nightmare (because Juan Pablo Galavis was THE WORST). So when it came to be that time on her season of The Bachelorette, she knew she had to take it very seriously.
And with that in mind, she sent 32-year-old Iowan farmer Chris Soules home before they even made it to the fantasy suite.
Even as their last date in the Dominican Republic began, Andi expressed reservations about her relationship with Chris. Could she move to Iowa? What would she do there? Did they have as deep of a connection as the ones she shared with Josh Murray and Nick Viall?
Turns out the answer was no. While Andi told Chris he was the perfect man "on paper," unfortunately "I guess my head and heart don't match up."
"I just don't see a foundation with us, and that's the honest truth of it," she said.
A wounded Chris didn't need her apologies. "You can't control your feelings," he said before he was driven away. (Well, they say time heals all wounds. So would being the next Bachelor.)
We'll find out more about Andi's decision in next week's "Men Tell All" episode. Chris definitely wants to learn more. "I had my heart broken and put everything out there," he said in the car. "I do have some questions about what the hell just happened."
The easiest explanation might be the most hurtful one: Andi simply had more feelings for Josh and Nick.
So, who's it gonna be: Josh or Nick?
On her overnight dates with Josh and Nick, neither man seems to have the edge over the other. Both professed their love for her, and she called them "total packages" who would make great husbands and fathers. To host Chris Harrison, Andi explained that they're mirrors of each other — Josh is goofy and fun, while Nick is serious and passionate.
Nick has been a frontrunner since the beginning (he got the first impression rose, remember?), but Josh lives nearly in her backyard. Location, location, location!
We'd give a slight (very slight) edge to Josh, only because of that and because they talked in-depth about their views of parenthood. Meanwhile, Andi clearly enjoys making out with Nick, but their conversations are less future-oriented.
She'll choose one of them in two weeks. We have a feeling this season won't end with a non-engagement like Juan Pablo's.
The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
