Consult with an asylum attorney and make sure that you have enough time left on your visa
status to ensure your stay after being denied. Injury attorneys are lawyers
that actually work to relieve the stress of the hard time
by recovering compensation for the injury. In order to know about personal injuries claims it
is important to know about the legality of the claim
and the ways in which the compensation is paid to the injured party.

He was too good for her. Think about her job … she is always right! She cannot admit that he was right. That is not in her nature.

First of all…Doesn’t every woman want to be adored.? :) …. I can’t fault Andi for that. It’s just that her “hissy fits” makes her look like a spoiled brat.

I have only watched this season to see Eric Hill. I saw Andi’s exit scene with Juan Pablo and I thought he had dodged a deadly legal eagle. I did not watch most of Juan’s season and did not even remember Andi from the earlier episodes that I had seen. It would have been nice to see Eric in the final two. It seems like the outcome of the season will be a success for Andi. She had the best group of men to select from compared to other Bachelorette seasons. She seems to be playing the game to keep all the men wondering where they stand. If Eric had not confronted her, he probably could have easily made it to a hometown visit.

Andi is not sincere when she’s talking about Eric. He was unique and the more handsome guy in the group. Rest in peace.

How do you know she’s not sincere? Does she owe the final rose to someone who’s good-looking and adventurous, when he’s not necessarily the one she cares most about. Does she owe him praise when he was a controlling, confrontational jerk who had no more right to her time or to make demands on her than any of the others.

Is the a contest for most unique and good-looking? I thought otherwise. While it’s not realistic, the premise of the show is that they are all looking for real love and a life partner. He wasn’t the one. The show is the bachelorette, not the bachelor.

Controlling, confrontation jerk? I know anonymous people online can be truly evil, but this might be one of the worst comments I’ve seen about a recently deceased person who had done so much for others. Suck it, BJ! You’ll get yours.

She did nothing illegal, she was just emotional. Big deal. After watching their date, I never really saw a match–about as much as I saw her with JJ. He seemed kind of spacey to me actually. But, maybe she felt like she was actually being generous by keeping certain ones around that would seem to appreciate the travelling and the adventure, as friends. The worst part of Monday night was the rollercoaster ride of self-righteous, judgmental people digitally throwing rocks at and stoning this poor girl. The punishment does not at all meet the crime. I hope the people commenting are never in the same position–wonder if any of them could handle it with such grace as she seems to be.

Maybe Andi should sit back now and realize that Eric’s frustrations with her were probably very similar to her frustrations with Juan-Pablo. Maybe he too was ‘tired’ and trying to make everyone happy, ‘acting’ like he was more into her than he was and walking around with an ‘ees ok’ poker face. Yet in both cases she felt ‘in the right’ to fly off the handle into high-maintenance hysterics… poor Andi… being a reality-TV starlet is so difficult.

I haven’t been a fan of hers from the beginning but this last episode really sealed the deal. Unless the guy is falling all over himself to tell her how gorgeous, perfect, package-deal she is, she has her back up and is instantly ready for tears and rage and then to send him packing. Talk about an overblown reaction to a guy who was trying to have a calm, rational discussion on trying to find a meaningful connection, which he’d clearly seen glimpses of in their first date.

Some people have said this is a ‘guy vs girl’ way of seeing things, but nope – I’m a female, a feminist, and I have to call it like I see it. I hate theatrics and people who can’t listen and communicate effectively. Andi needs to brush up on her skill-sets in both areas and calm down.

I agree 100%! Andi is fake and arrogant constantly with a grumpy face. Eric was absolutely spot on when he confronted her and explained that he was in fact open and didn’t get anything back except for the poker face. Andi got back exactly what she deserved – she thought she would become a national sweetheart after bashing Juan Pablo and talking garbage about him – unfortunately it doesn’t work like that. Viewers aren’t stupid. As for the episode – I actually think that 10 minutes of talk about Eric at the end was terrible – fake, disingenuous and just plain terrible. I feel bad that Eric’s family had to hear that. Typical rose ceremony would have been much less painful to watch.

Yes, but she was probably still going off in a rant to all the guys, so the only thing to do was to cut it out. The producers surely could have come up with a more fitting “tribute”

I completely agree–Eric was an amazing and handsome young man, a free spirit and a great judge of character. What I think some have forgotten is the fact that in Eric’s world explorations, he encounters individuals from various cultures. In my experiences, individuals from other cultures are often unpretentious; they tend to be kind and display a sense of gratitude that isn’t always common here in the states. Thus, it’s possible that her “poker face” was even more jarring, given their first date as well as the types of people he encountered each day.

In either case, I think Andi said it best on one show when she mentioned that she didn’t know what she wanted. She definitely doesn’t like being questioned or challenged and is quick-tempered. I found Eric to be kind and non-confrontational in his approach, and her reaction should have earned her a “Razzie” Award. Remember, too, that unlike many of Andi’s other suitors, Eric lived much of his life in front of the cameras, too, but obviously in a very different, authentic and unscripted manner.

To his family, Eric was a real gem… and we are all better for having ‘known’ him. His uncomfortable exit was completely uncalled for, but very eye-opening for those of us trying to “put a finger” on what was off this season.

As for ending the show with 10 minutes of strained, disingenuous conversation about losing a ‘family member’, I think that karma is coming around for Andi. She loved the attention she received by ‘calling out’ Juan Pablo, confronting him and working to stir more drama than was necessary. But she is no better at handling confrontation or controversy, and perhaps will be a bit more kind and empathetic to her other ‘family member’ that she unceremoniously attacked to earn her 15 minutes.

Thanks for this Bonnie. Eric Hill was an amazing person, someone rare on this earth. He lived a life free of conventions and constraints and was willing to be real.

What I’ve noticed is that Andi prefers to have the “upper hand” in her relationships. I think Eric made her feel uncomfortable because this was a guy that she couldn’t ‘dominate’ like the others. When you look at the guys she’s really connected with, they’re the ones that are less sure of themselves and to whom Andi can feel a bit superior. The way she characterizes this is that those guys are more ‘open’ with her, but the reality is that those guys don’t challenge her the way Eric did–not in the way in which their relationship ended–but in the fact that Eric doesn’t need Andi’s affirmation in the some others do.

Eric, you will be missed. I’m glad I got to see a glimpse of the person you were and it’s had an impact on me no doubt. My condolences to your parents, family and friends.

I have been watching the batchelorette for years. I do not see anything different about Andi than the other women. It is a reality show
Does anyone know exactly how to act when you have cameras following them 24/7? Andi’s position is totally different than the guys. There is more pressure on herself to find the right one and not try to hurt feelings of others
It is unfortunate what happened to Eric. I certainly am devastated and my heart goes out to his family. However that doesn’t make it right for him to be mean to her which I feel he was. Maybe not intentionally but he continued to press the issue until Andi got offended. I certainly would of gotten upset. It all is an unfortunate situation. No one expected Eric to die. Maybe he just should of walked away from the situation. Why was he on the show if he wanted to break a record of traveling to every country. I do not think he was on the show for the right reason . Please people I am the most loving and understandable person. I am very sympathetic to a fault but give Andi a break.

You are 100% spot on. Thanks for this. Eric was a lovely, genuine, true person–to pull out that old tired phrase, probably the only one who was there ‘for the right reasons.’

Agreed. He was a rare one. He reminded me of Brooks, from last bachelorette who left because he just knew it was the right thing to do.

Eric was a dick as scripted now the producers scrambled to figure out the guys tell all.
Andie has the most upside down smile ever and a very low grumbling voice.

She was a melodramatic witch who overdid it as usual, just like she did with JP. In the interview with Chris about Eric’s death, she looked arrogant and mean. She was ridiculous in her word choices, just like the lawyer she is. Nothing is ever her fault. I cannot stand her. His death was a huge loss. She can suck it.

I agree ya‘ll..as she likes to say ya‘ll, I can’t stand it! She sounds stupid! I was hoping she wouldn’t be the next bachelorette and now she is, so as a faithful viewer I am watching. I don’t like her way of handling herself in that situation. As a woman I know that this wouldn’t of pissed me off to that degree! If he would of been shouting then yes..but what a nice beautiful man he seem to be to me. I don’t buy her crocodile tears, and I sure don’t feel sorry for her! Hopefully this will teach her to have more tolerance in taking any criticism about herself from any possible future relationship. Stop thinking that you’re so perfect because you are NOT!!! R.I.P. Eric Hill
