Andi Dorfman’s journey on “The Bachelorette” is coming to an end. The season finale and final rose ceremony will air on ABC on Monday, July 28, at 8 p.m. EDT. So, which contestant will Andi pick – Nick or Josh? The decision won’t be easy for the 26-year-old Atlanta beauty.
After Chris’s early departure during the “Fantasy Suite” episode, Andi will introduce Nick and Josh to her family. The meeting is an important test for both the men because family means so much to them – but will Andi’s family approve of the pair?
Nick will be the first bachelor up, and the 33-year-old software sales executive is set on asking Andi’s father a big question … if he has permission to marry his daughter. But things won’t go too smoothly for the confident contestant. While he talked a big game throughout the entire competition, he’ll become tongue-tied “when he faces his potential in-laws.”
Josh will follow Nick, but he too won’t have an easy time. The synopsis teases that the 29-year-old’s “quick wit and easygoing charm” may “raise a red flag rather than win over Andi’s family.” Andi’s father will recognize the former professional baseball player as his daughter’s type – however he knows that she never settles down with that “type.” It’ll be up to Josh to win them over and prove that he’s ready to take that next step with Andi.
Besides the meet the parents date, Andi will have one last date alone with Josh and Nick. With Josh at her side, the pair will explore the coast of the Dominican Republic from a sailboat. But their fun and flirty day will take a serious turn that evening when “questions arise about the possibility of spending life together.” Josh will give Andi a “heartfelt gift” … but will that be enough to convince her that he’s the one?
Andi and Nick will “go off-roading and wind up at a secret lagoon for a private swim” on their final date. And while Andi and Josh’s evening was serious, she’ll have a slightly different experience with Nick. According to the synopsis, “their passion heats up as the couple realizes their chemistry is undeniable.” Like Josh, Nick will give Andi a gift that “sums up their relationship and his true intentions.” But will that be enough to sway Andi’s feelings?
“The final days of Andi’s journey are filled with questions,” the press release for the final rose warns “fans of “The Bachelorette.” “Then, in a surprising, explosive ending, Andi must do the hardest thing she has ever done. Will her trip of self-discovery end in an engagement or is she headed for heartbreak?”
Watch the drama unfold on “The Bachelorette” when the season finale airs on ABC on Monday, July 28, at 8 p.m. EDT. Stay tuned at 10 p.m. EDT to watch “The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose” special.” Viewers can look forward to seeing Andi sit down with host Chris Harrison – live – to discuss the final two men in the competition and what happened in those final days in the Dominican Republic.
