Pulling up in an vintage automotive, “The Bachelorette” contestant Andrew Spencer launched himself in a British accent, saying that he “traveled all the manner throughout the pond” to see Katie Thurston, who he stated appeared “completely beautiful.”
However earlier than lengthy, the gig was up: Andrew is a bogus Brit.
The 26-year-old truly hails from Chicago and at the moment performs professional soccer in Vienna, Austria.
Andrew was so set on making an impression from the get-go, he used the fake accent to appeal her. (It might have labored a bit of: He was the first to steal Katie away for a one-on-one.)
She confessed that whereas his accent was good, it didn’t idiot her due to journey precautions that had been imposed, limiting worldwide flights because of the coronavirus pandemic.
To play together with the gag, Katie gave a toast in a British accent, insisting that Andrew appeared “dashing” and thanking him for coming on the present. The 2 giggled as they sipped their drinks and the faux-British boy appeared to be off to a very good begin.
Due to his actual appeal — and, one way or the other, his pretend accent — Andrew obtained a rose on the first evening. And rumor has it — in keeping with “The Bachelor” professional Actuality Steve, anyway — that he will get just a few extra, and even makes it to Katie’s remaining 4.
In the trailer for the season, we see Katie chasing after Andrew and leaping into his arms for an emotional second, along with her voice-over saying “I’m dropping you. I’m dropping my thoughts right here.”
Followers can solely speculate as to what’s occurring in that second, however from Andrew’s bio we do know that Andrew and Katie look like a very good match. He “can’t wait to get married and hopes to have 5 youngsters at some point” and values the significance of communication in a relationship.
He additionally already has a bit of perception into how the present and the “Bachelor” franchise works, as his cousin is Clay Harbor, who was in the 14th season of “The Bachelorette” and the sixth of “Bachelor in Paradise.”
However what we do learn about Andrew’s ending doesn’t give us an excessive amount of hope that he scores the remaining rose.
After filming, he returned to Austria, the place he instructed AFI, “Soccer is my past love, it’s one thing that’s at all times going to have a particular place in my coronary heart. With the ability to come again right here and breathe soccer air, it’s been like coming again residence, virtually stress-free. It’s my secure haven, my Zen.”
