“Andi’s my wife. She’s just gonna have to wait a couple more days”—Josh Murray
Tonight Bachelorette 27-year-old Fulton, Georgia Assistant District Attorney Andi Dorfman got engaged to 29-year-old Financial Planner Josh Murray (also from Atlanta, Georgia) in the Dominican Republic.
Phew! Another successful Bachelorette journey ends in engagement and a Neil Lane ring!
It was pretty obvious all season that Andi was smitten with 6′-2″, 200 lb ex-pro baseball player Josh Murray. In fact it was pretty obvious all season that she LOVES athletes. In fact, Andi claimed that Josh was a “challenge” for her because he was her type.
When Andi Dorfman first met Josh, she claimed in her ITM, “Josh M. is my type; nailed it, pegged it.”
I knew when I saw Nick Viall meet with Andi’s mom Patti that he was a gonner. Andi’s mom looked crushed by Nick’s profession of undying love for his daughter, because she knew it was not going to end well for him and she was right.
Hy looked all business with Nick…like he was just going through the motions.
By contrast, both looked thrilled when they met with the Josh Murray . I think someone probably gave her family a heads up on the winner. Plus Josh and Hy had matching outfits on which always bodes well.
So tonight Andi had some more one on one time in the Dominican Republic with her beaus. Josh and Andi went for a boat ride. Andi is still freaked out by Josh and worried he is “too good to be true”. So she wants some more reassurance. The Enneagram 1 needs certainty and reassurance and they will begin to perseverate on all the things that could go wrong. Luckily Josh does reassure her….”There’s no changing my feelings.”
“I don’t know what it was about Josh M. but I immediately called him out for not being as shy as he claimed. He’s obviously handsome and has a great smile, but there was something there I needed to figure out.”
Eventually Andi chose the guy “that scared her”, Josh over 33-year-old sales executive Nick Viall. Nick received Andi’s first impression rose, but Josh Murray received her final rose!
Andi cried when she visited Nick Viall to tell him he wasn’t her choice.
Nick claims that he never saw the break-up coming, and told her he woke up that morning feeling confident about them.
“Man, I really thought this was it,” Viall says after getting the boot…. “I really thought she loved me.”
But Andi was confident in her final decision and the final rose ceremony with Josh was amazing!
“Andi you are the answer to all of my prayers you are the answer to my dreams you are the woman I thought never existed in this world. All my worries they just seem to vanish when I’m with you,” Murray said.
Andi responded that she was in love with him and wanted to spend her life with him and have children together.
ABC gets an A+ for making this match! I think these two just might make it!
Will these two make it?
