Things are heating up on “The Bachelorette,” in both the romance and drama departments. A special two-night event kicked off on Sunday for the hit ABC reality show, which resulted in the paring down of Andi Dorfman’s dating pool to 13 dreamy guys. However, viewers discovered that not all of the remaining contestants may be there for the right reasons.
Every season has a villain, and episode 3 seemed to unveil Season 10’s bad guy: Andrew. For those unfamiliar with the contestant, Andrew is a 30-year-old social media marketer from Portola Valley, California. While he hasn’t had that much screen time with Andi so far, he caught viewers' attention on Sunday night when he was accused of getting a girl’s number and bragging about it to some of the guys.
The drama began when JJ revealed to the cameras that something had been bothering him. JJ pulled Josh aside and confided in him that Andrew had asked a restaurant hostess for her phone number at the beginning of filming. He said Andrew bragged to the other guys in the limo ride home how he had scored the woman’s number.
JJ and Josh both agreed the move was disrespectful to Andi, and they decided to confront Andrew about it. Needless to say, it didn't go well.
At first, Andrew walked away, telling JJ and Josh that he didn’t want to “engage” in the accusations. However he later resurfaced to tell his side of the story to a growing group of the guys.
“I was handed a phone number on the second or third night we were here,” Andrew told his accusers. He claimed he didn’t brag about it.
And while it seems to be JJ’s word against Andrew’s, Nick V. decided to jump into the conversation. According to Nick V., Andrew not only bragged to the guys in the limo about getting her phone number, he also told the guys he was bunking with the same thing when he got back to the room later that evening.
Despite not getting any one-on-one time with Andi, Andrew chalked up “jealousy” to the attack from JJ and Josh. And the drama will continue at least until episode 4 as the guys didn’t get a chance to talk to Andi about Andrew’s alleged “disrespectful” actions before the episode 3 rose ceremony.
But is Andrew the villain? Or is he being set up by the other contestants?
According to Lucy Aragon, a bachelorette on Juan Pablo’s season of “The Bachelor,” Andrew is not the guy that the ABC show is making him out to be.
Andrew, on the other hand, has kept quiet on Twitter, choosing not to respond to the accusations. Instead, the contestant decided to retweet some of the cruel messages people have posted about him.
