Andi Dorfman addresses why she sent Chris Soules home

One of the big shockers on Monday night’s episode of The Bachelorette was Andi Dorfman’s rejection of 32-year-old farmer Chris Soules before the Fantasy Suites. Andi addressed the difficult situation in her PEOPLE blog.

“I was really excited to get to this Caribbean island and start the week of dating, but I have to admit that my excitement was met with some serious reservations. I couldn’t help but remember how this week went for me last season” she begins.

“As excited as I was to spend quality, private time with my final guys, I was also nervous that they were going to be different behind closed doors.”

Andi obviously had feelings for Josh and Nick but she seemed quite reserved with Chris. And Andi has had a very tough time maintaining a poker face all season. So she breaks into tears knowing she has to dump Chris:

“I don’t think it’s fair to make you sit here for days and wait for a rose ceremony” … “I just think I’d rather be honest with you and tell you that I’m trying and I’m trying but it’s not there…Every part of me feels that I’m an idiot for not being able to reciprocate [your love]. Because look at you. Look at the type of person you are…My head and heart don’t match up.”

Chris is absolutely devastated and claims that he didn’t see this coming. “I just had my heart broken and I put everything out there,” …. “I’m just sad, disappointed. I do have some questions as to what the hell just happened.”

This is what Andi said about why she chose to “forgo” the Fantasy Suite and eliminate Chris Soules.

“My last date was with Chris. Ever since Chris revealed himself as the secret admirer, our relationship had really picked up momentum. I was bowled over by how amazing his hometown date was, and I remember leaving Iowa on Cloud Nine. Coming into this week in the Dominican, I needed to figure out if I really saw a future with Chris – without his wonderful, loving family back in Iowa.  This date was definitely the most crucial of the week.”

“We had a great time (horse) riding and we enjoyed a picnic in the countryside, but the highlight had to be another round of my new favorite game, Ghost in the Graveyard. Despite the fact that we were having fun, I could tell something was missing with our relationship. I left that date with my head spinning.”

“Coming into that evening, I didn’t know what to do….. I have to say that when it comes to last season, I honestly wished Juan Pablo let me go before we went into the fantasy suite. It was a huge step in the relationship and I made a promise to myself that if I didn’t see that potential with one of my guys, I wouldn’t allow myself to go into the fantasy suite with them.”

“The more I talked to Chris, the more I realized our connection wasn’t there. We talked a lot about whether or not I could see myself living in Iowa, but that wasn’t fair. The truth was that Iowa wasn’t the hurdle, our foundation was. I honestly didn’t feel like I had a built a solid enough of a foundation with Chris.”

“I didn’t have the same feelings for Chris as I had with Nick and Josh, so even though it was so difficult, I wanted to be honest with Chris…. I decided it wasn’t right to spend the night with Chris in the fantasy suite and it wasn’t fair to make him wait for the rose ceremony.”

“What it really came down to though were those intangibles like chemistry, a potential future and most of all, love. Unfortunately, I did not see those things with Chris and I had to make the toughest decision of my journey.”

Well it definitely was one of the most emotional exits in Bachelorette history, but don’t feel too bad for Chris, it looks like he may be the star of The Bachelor 2015!
