The 2014 season of “The Bachelorette” concludes Monday, July 28. Fans of the ABC reality show can look forward to a three-hour event in which Andi Dorfman, the 26-year-old district attorney from Atlanta, will choose the man of her dreams. But who will win the competition? It’s a close race between Nick V. and Josh M.
Nick V. has been a frontrunner on “The Bachelorette” since the limo arrivals on the first night. Andi was immediately charmed by the shy 33-year-old software sales executive, and gifted him with the coveted first impression rose. That rose gave Nick V. the confidence he needed to stand tall against the other contestants and pursue the bachelorette -- no matter whose toes he stepped on along the way.
In episode 3, Nick V. landed his first one-on-one date with Andi, a romantic bike ride through Santa Barbara that ended at Lizard’s Mouth, a beautiful hiking destination. It was while they hiked to the peak that Nick V. opened up about his past relationships, admitted to crushing on the bachelorette, and shared his first kiss with the gorgeous brunette. Nick V. may have secured his spot during the rose ceremony during that date, but he wanted to make sure Andi knew how much the journey on “The Bachelorette” meant to him. That night the contestant sent a bouquet of roses to his lady love, which interrupted the brief alone time that Eric had managed to snag with Andi. That was only the beginning of Nick’s romance with Andi -- and trouble with the other men.
Like Nick V., Josh M. proved to have a strong connection with Andi from the start of the season of “The Bachelorette.” On leaving the limo, Andi readily admitted to the cameras that the 29-year-old former pro baseball player was hot and totally her type. However, that didn’t necessarily mean Josh had the competition in the bag. Andi had been burned in the past by the “athlete type” and made Josh work to earn her trust.
He did just that from the first few episodes, not only landing a steamy kiss in episode 3 but also securing the group date rose. While they took a step back in episode 6 due to Josh’s uneasiness with the lie detector test, the pair pushed forward in episode 7 with their romantic one-on-one date in Belgium.
Nick V. and Josh M. will go head-to-head for Andi’s heart in the season finale of “The Bachelorette” July 28. Both men will meet Andi’s family and get a chance to prove to them that they’re the one who holds the key to her happiness. But it’ll be up to the bachelorette in the end. Andi will have one final date with each man, which will push her into making the biggest decision of her life. Will Andi choose Nick V., a man with whom she shares passion? Or will she choose Josh M., a man who is undeniably her “type?” Take the poll below to cast your vote!
