As Andi Dorfman’s final two men, Josh Murray and Nick Viall, get ready to meet her dad, Hy Dorfman, on tonight’s Bachelorette Season 10 finale, it’s likely they’re more than the normal amount of nervous one gets before meeting potential in laws. After all, this is Hy, the guy who told Juan Pablo Galavis he wasn’t good enough for Andi during The Bachelor Season 18’s Hometown Dates. Ouch. No one wants that amount of shade on national television.


Thankfully, Josh and Nick have someone to turn to for help in knowing how to navigate Hy’s, um, tactics — Marquel Martin. Though it was never shown, in the season premiere, Hy stopped by Bachelor Mansion and intimidated the pants off spoke to some of Andi’s men, including stylish hunk Marquel, in an encounter that didn’t exactly go swimmingly.

In the deleted scene, Marquel and fellow contestants Eric Hill and Brian Osborne “enjoy” a quiet moment with Papa Dorf, until that moment turns a wee bit awkward. Marquel tries to compliment Hy’s parenting by complimenting Andi, but Hy isn’t having it and instead refers to the Cookie Monster as a “suck up.” Cue Marquel fans everywhere reaching for their Hy Dorfman voodoo dolls.

After that, both Hy and Marquel try and laugh the moment off, but it’s pretty cringeworthy, ending only when Andi comes to escort her dad out of the house (smart move).

So what lesson should Josh and Nick take from Marquel’s awkward encounter? Don’t try to go the kiss-ass route with this papa bear — he’s going to see right through that!
