Not only did The Bachelorette’s Andi Dorfman wait until the very last moment to choose Josh Murray, but she was leaning toward another guy until the very end! The gorgeous district attorney’s switcheroo caused a last-second scramble.
Host Chris Harrison and the producers, who thought Andi would choose the other finalist, Nick Viall, were caught totally of-guard. “Andi had deep feelings for both Josh and Nick, and she initially chose Nick to win,” says a source close to the production. “But just minutes before she was set to tape, she had a change of heart and picked Josh instead.”
The two finalists were no surprise to viewers. All season, it was clear that Andi, 27, had the most chemistry with Josh, 29, and Nick, 33. She dug both guys, but each had a strike against him. Nick, a sales executive, showed an arrogant side that made enemies of the other contestants. “A few of the guys warned Andi that Nick was shady,” says the source. “But she was fooled by his charm.”
And Josh is a former pro baseball player, which made Andi hesitate, since she’d dated jocks before and been burned. “But she knew in her gut that Josh was the one,” says the source. “She’ll never admit that she initially chose Nick.”
