After both Josh and Nick met Andi’s parents, she had a huge decision to make — and we were all on the edge of our seats to see who she would pick: the gorgeous, brooding Josh or the underdog, sweet guy, Nick!
Andi Dorfman, 27, narrowed it down to two gorgeous men for the big Bachelorette finale on July 28, and it was completley full of emotional (of course). Both men may have won over Andi’s dad, Hy Dorfman, but the real test was who would win Andi’s heart — and if they would propose. So, what went down? Not to worry, I’m breaking it all down for you right here.
Andi’s Men Meet The Parents
Of course we all remembered Andi’s dad from Juan Pablo‘s season, because he wasn’t a fan. However, Andi’s mom was all about her final two. Nick Viall, 33, won her over by telling her he loved Andi (over and over again), which made her tear up. So when he pulled his nerves together to talk to her dad, Hy was actually really impressed.
It wasn’t the same for Josh Murray, 29, — her parents were a little caught off guard because he is her type, and her mom even said he was “chaotic!” Ouch. Sure his nerves came off awkward, but once he settled in, they fell for him just like Andi. Hy gave him his blessing as well!
Overall, he was easier to impress than Andi was!
Josh & Nick Get Their Final Dates
As you can guess, Andi and Josh spent a lot of their final fate making out. It was actually super romantic on a boat — flash back to their first one-on-one date. Also, they totally had a Pacey and Joey jumping off the boat moment, and then went snorkeling! How cute!
Unfortunately, after the date, Andi goes back to her “is-this-too-good-to-be-true” state of mind. BUT she has to remember his amazing gift! He gave her a letter with — wait for it — her very own baseball card with her own statistics. Pretty sure the only thing Josh loves more than baseball is Andi, so that totally fits.
Next up is Andi’s final date with Nick. They go offroading to a lagoon for a picnic, followed by a romantic dip in the water! It was definitely a sweet moment, and Andi said that she felt “sexy” when with Nick. After the date, she heads over to his place for (yet another) cozy, couch date featuring a rambling Nick.
However, his gift one-ups Josh’s baseball card. He went back to the beach where he first told Andi he loved her and made a necklace out of the shells. Swoon! Not to worry, he also walked her through his dream weekday schedule with her which involved “makeout-ish” time.
On the morning of Andi’s engagement, we got a slo-mo look at both men, shirtless, opening their curtains — a scene that could be next to “Bachelorette” in the dictionary. It was time for Neil Lane to stop by the final two’s rooms so the men could pick out that ring, but we only saw him stop at Josh’s. When Nick opened the door, he found Andi!
Andi came in to talk and we’ve got to say, we have to give her so much credit for being honest with him. She told him when she woke up that morning, something didn’t feel right. He had told her during their date before, that last time he was planning to propose, he woke up that morning feeling like something wasn’t right — and now it was happening to him.
Nick was definitely broken-hearted, and wanted answers. “Is this more about us or is it about someone else?” he asked her, to which she shrugged her shoulders and apologized. He kept going, telling her he kind of wishes she wouldn’t have said or done certain things — like when he said “I love you,” and she said she wished she could say something back.
So, that was that — Nick was out of the game. The walk to the door was definitely awkward. He opened the door for Andi with one hand and gave her a half-hug with the other, before packing his things and leaving a rainy Dominican Republic. Heart. Break.
Will Andi Get Engaged?
So, that left Josh — who came up in a sleek blue suit and had a killer speech ready. He told Andi he gave up his “one true love,” baseball and that she was the answer to all of his prayers and the woman of his dreams.
Andi admitted to Josh that she was scared of him and the relationship they had — something she has said all along. “I’ve loved you since the moment that I laid eyes on you. I am madly in love with you. You’re it, you’re the one,” she said. Once I stopped jumping up and down from excitement, I sat back down to watch Josh pop the question — and she said yes!
The rest of the episode was filled with Andi and Josh going back and forth to argue over who loved who more. Many may have felt some nausea with the amount of kissing and staring there was, but we’ve got to say, that’s one of the HOTTEST Bachelorette COUPLES EVER. Do you agree, HollywoodLifers?
