Warning: Spoilers ahead. Like, a lot of ‘em. You’ve been warned.
Rose Ceremonies are tough enough as it is, with the threat of leaving roseless always on the minds of the be-suited contestants. But you know what’s even more awkward to endure? A 1-on-1 date dismissal. And according to showrunner Robert Mills, one of those bad boys is on the horizon, and it’s coming up soon.
The cryptic tweeter wrote on June 11, “#Bachelorette tease: you will get to see European Creepy Luggage Guy in an upcoming episode.” Now, an average fan might dismiss that as just the words of a weary man who’s run a show for one season past a freckle. But we know better, of course.
The so-called “European Creepy Luggage Guy” in question? Oh, that would be the dude who shows up and ends the dreams of the dismissed men and women of Bachelor Nation. You may remember the ECLG from such moments as the time that Brad McKinzie was brutally rebuffed during the most awkward Desiree Hartsock date of the season (okay, scratch that — it’s a competitive category). Or when Elyse Myers put her heart on the line and Ben Flajnik was like “hard pass. Please leave. Now, thanks.” There have been others, of course, but those ones were pretty rough.
So, who’s the next recipient of the awkward exit award? There are so many possibilities, but only one right answer. Could things between Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray sour on Monday’s Francophilic episode? Nah. Even friend zone dweller Brian Osborne makes it through Episode 5, according to Reality Steve.
In Italy, Andi gets solos with Cody Sattler and a second 1er with Nick Viall. In Brussels on June 30, it’s Marcus Grodd and Josh Murray grabbing their second chances at secret smooches (sorry, Soules!). So, which of these fellas gets the ol’ heave-ho instead of a rose? That would be Sean Bro, Cody Sattler. We’re laughing through the tears, though, because how funny is it that the guy who pushed the limo up the driveway doesn’t even have to carry his own luggage?
What do you think of Cody’s un(rose)ceremonious (literally) exit? Hit the comments and dish!
