Eric Hill Impresses Andi Dorfman On First Date — He Is A True Gentleman
Andi selected Eric to go on her first date on The Bachelorette on May 26. Their romantic outing was so touching, but emotional to watch, as Eric was killed in a paragliding accident after the season wrapped filming.
However, it was so great to see Eric doing what he loves the most — outdoor adventure, plus being a loving family man!
The smitten duo headed to the beach, and Eric was so surprised when a helicopter whisked the two away off the California coast and headed to the snowy mountains. The two snowboarded together with pro coach Louie Vito (see his touching tweet below), helping Andi through the slopes.
But viewers really got to see how amazing Eric was when him and Andi sat together in a cabin, having an emotional heart-to-heart. Eric told Andi about his scary time in Syria when he had a near-death experience, as a reporter, and also talked about how important marriage and kids is to him. It was tragic to see him speak about his future desires, but it was so lovely to witness Eric’s amazing personality. He really was an incredible guy!
