So remember how we found out a while ago that Bachelor in Paradise producers were reportedly angling for a finale proposal? Things didn’t work out with Chris Bukowski and Elise Mosca, but apparently they found another Bachelorette alum to get down on one knee on-camera: Andi Dorfman dumpee, Marcus Grodd!
We already told you that Marcus and Juan Pablo Galavis’s former contestant Lacy Faddoul were one of the two successful couples at the end of the show — along with Cody Sattler and Michelle Money. But it looks like it was Andi’s fourth place finisher who beat his fellow Season 10-er to the chase, with Reality Steve reporting on July 8 that Marcus and Lacy got engaged in the BiP finale. Further supporting those reports, Us Weekly's own sources confirmed the engagement on July 24. Guess the Dorf wasn’t that hard to get over in the end — even if he made it seem that way during July 21's "Men Tell All" special.
The rest of the details on this speedy betrothal are still unknown, but we have to admit we’re not that shocked to hear it was Marcus. The 26-year-old was the first of Andi’s guys to drop the L-bomb — by a clear mile, actually. So not only was he pretty open with his feelings, he certainly seemed ready for a serious commitment. Looks like he found that in nurse Lacy, also 26, who was eliminated far too early on Bachelor 18 — like first episode early.
More details as they come, but an early congrats to these two pretty young people. May they get their own ABC-funded wedding and join the ranks of other franchise mainstays like Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici, and Jason Mesnick and Molly Mesnick — or at least Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried, who aren’t yet married but are still going strong.
