Pulling up in an vintage automobile, “The Bachelorette” contestant Andrew Spencer launched himself in a British accent, saying that he “traveled all the way across the pond” to see Katie Thurston, who he mentioned seemed “absolutely exquisite.”
But earlier than lengthy, the gig was up: Andrew is a bogus Brit.
The 26-year-old really 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 attraction her. (It might have labored a bit: He was the primary 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, proscribing worldwide flights as a result of coronavirus pandemic.
To play together with the gag, Katie gave a toast in a British accent, insisting that Andrew seemed “dashing” and thanking him for coming on the present. The two giggled as they sipped their drinks and the faux-British boy appeared to be off to an excellent begin.
Thanks to his actual attraction — and, one way or the other, his faux accent — Andrew got a rose on the first night. And rumor has it — in keeping with “The Bachelor” skilled Reality Steve, anyway — that he will get a couple of extra, and even makes it to Katie’s final four.
In the trailer for the season, we see Katie chasing after Andrew and leaping into his arms for an emotional second, together with her voice-over saying “I’m losing you. I’m losing my mind here.”
Fans can solely speculate as to what’s taking place in that second, however from Andrew’s bio we do know that Andrew and Katie look like an excellent match. He “can’t wait to get married and hopes to have five kids one day” and values the significance of communication in a relationship.
He additionally already has a bit perception into how the present and the “Bachelor” franchise works, as his cousin is Clay Harbor, who was within the 14th season of “The Bachelorette” and the sixth of “Bachelor in Paradise.”
But what we do learn about Andrew’s ending doesn’t give us an excessive amount of hope that he scores the ultimate rose.
After filming, he returned to Austria, the place he advised AFI, “Football is my first love, it’s something that’s always going to have a special place in my heart. Being able to come back here and breathe football air, it’s been like coming back home, almost relaxing. It’s my safe haven, my Zen.”
