So, we’re all adults here, right? Which means we can talk freely about what happens behind closed doors on the The Bachelor and Bachelorette’s Fantasy Suite overnight dates — namely, that the lucky couples have long talks about the meaning of life, quiz each other on their Trivial Pursuit knowledge, and read sonnets aloud until dawn. Riiiiigggghhhht.
During Andi Dorfman’s overnight date with Josh Murray, things may have gotten a little less PG thanks to an aphrodisiac Josh bought from a local street vendor. We see the baller buying the concoction, called Mama Juana, during the episode, but what we didn’t see was Andi and Josh partaking of the liquid love potion right before they entered their private suite. ABC posted the deleted scene after the fact and it’s pretty cute, and — in our opinion — pretty telling of what’s to come.
In the scene, Josh says “it’s supposed to make you feel good” and then the duo do shots of the drink that’s “got a little kick” to it. Then they giggle like school girls dipping into their dad’s liquor cabinet.
If you ask Wikipedia, the most reliable source on the planet, Mama Juana is a drink native to the Dominican Republic and is made by tossing some red wine, rum, and honey into a bottle and letting it soak in mystery herbs and tree bark for a bit. Mmmmm, mmmmm, nothing says “let’s get it on” like tree bark. In the scene, Andi seems to have trouble, um, swallowing, even though the drink is supposed to taste as harmless as port wine.
Here’s hoping the purchase was money well spent for Josh! Watch the clip below then tell us in the comments what you think of Josh’s love potion strategy:
