Aw, we had such high hopes for Brian Osborne in the beginning of his run on Andi Dorfman’s season of The Bachelorette. The high school basketball coach really began standing out in Episode 4 in Connecticut, where he won over both our hearts and the Dorf’s with his adorable dimples and killer half-court shot. But that heat just couldn’t last, and Brian and his argyle sweater were sent packing at the end of June 30’s Episode 7 in Belgium.
So what happened between the 27-year-old’s first sexual tension-filled private moment with Andi and the Brussels Rose Ceremony? For one, there was that awkward cooking date in Marseilles back in the fifth ep, which saw Brian pouting over having to cook his own dinner. The date did recover a bit after with some drinks, but we imagine the baller never fully rebounded (sorry we had to) from that bitter moment.
In his final ep, Brian joined Nick Viall, Chris Soules and Dylan Petitt on a group date at a Brussels monastery — how romantic, right? Not. But props to BriBri, however, as he did take the opportunity to express his emotions to Andi in an out-of-character moment of carpe diem-ness. Alas, it wasn’t enough to keep him around for Hometown Dates.
It’s OK, Brian, we still love you! Though we won’t get to meet his family on-screen, you can head over to his Instagram for plenty of shots with his lookalike little bro. It’s almost the same thing?
The 27-year-old fella hails from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, which is basically the Atlanta of the north (nope, we made that up), so they’ll have tons in common. Or something. We’re sorry, we’re just a bit distracted by his warm smile and gorgeousness, which is totally understandable, since he’s fine.
But like Andi, he’s more than just enviable phenotypes. Brian attended Temple University in Pennsylvania, earning a bachelor’s degree in sports and recreational management. He then took that degree and spun it into a career in sports — but not as a soccer player, Andi, so eees okay.
Reality Steve spills some deets on the hottie who makes it to at least Episode 3 (he was on the Boyz II Men group date), and should stick around for a while, if Andi knows what’s up. Brian’s LinkedIn gives a little more info, listing jobs at Trinity High School, where we’ve heard he’s the assistant boys’ basketball coach, and Red Land High School, where word is he coaches soccer.
Brian’s Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook are currently out of commish, making us pretty sure he’s still around on the show, since contestants aren’t allowed on social media during filming. Athletic, hot, and following his career dreams? Sounds like a real rose getter, er, go getter to us!
What do you think: Is Brian the No. 1 fella for Andi, or should she keep her eye on the ball and pick someone else?
