Did anyone else feel total secondhand embarrassment for Bachelorette Andi Dorfman during last night’s “After the Final Rose” post-finale special? When the poor dear was forced to sit down with her (frankly, super clingy) ex Nick Viall and he called her out for sleeping with him then dumping him, we pretty much wanted to throw ourselves out the window, so imagine how she felt! But the bigger question: Did Andi’s actual final pick and current fiancé Josh Murray know this fact already, or did dude find out in that very moment?
The funny thing about The Bachelor and Bachelorette franchises is that, although each season there’s an episode dedicated to the “Fantasy Suites,” show contestants, leads, and even the producers themselves usually keep the S-E-X talk to a minimum. Maybe it’s because this is a network show on primetime, or perhaps, even in 2014, we’re still all a little prudish, but very rarely will they come right out and say anything other than “we got to spend quality private time together” etcetera, etcetera.
That was the case again with Andi, who took both Nick and Josh into her hotel room, away from the prying eyes of the cameras (and America). Though the 27-year-old chose to leave something to the imagination and didn’t say anything about what happened in those rooms, Nick wasn’t going to keep up with such discretion.
In the “ATFR” awkward turtle to end all awkward turtles, the man scorned prompted Andi with this little tidbit: “If you weren’t in love with me, why did you make love with me?” Woof. The Bachelorette was clearly pissed and appropriately taken aback, but imagine what Josh was thinking backstage! He came out just moments later to shout his love to the rooftops, but we had to wonder if he was fuming on the inside.
That being said, after watching the couple’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! later in the night, we don’t think this was the first time Josh learned that Andi had slept with someone else. When he was asked about whether the two watched the show together, the former baller dished:
“I really don’t need to know about that stuff. And to be honest, she’s very honest with me about everything, too. She’s very open about what she did with the guys.” Sounds like this Atlanta lawyer had briefed her man! (Pun intended.)
Needless to say, we probably will never know how much Josh knew about Nick and Andi’s relationship beforehand. But at least the lines of communication seem to be open and hey, you got the girl, Joshy!
Do you think Josh just found out about Andi and Nick, or do you think she told him about it beforehand? Sound off in the comments below.
