ANDI SWEEPS THE FINAL THREE MEN TO THE TROPICAL PARADISE OF THE

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, BUT HER ASTONISHING CHOICE ALTERS HER

QUEST TO FIND LOVE, ON ABC’S “THE BACHELORETTE” 



“Episode 1009” – Romantic adventures await Andi and the final three men – Chris, Josh and Nick – as they travel to the beautiful island of the Dominican Republic. There is electricity and passion in the air during these sand and surf excursions as Andi continues to explore what her future would be like with these potential partners. She will spend special intimate time with each of the final guys and there are possible invitations to spend the night in a “fantasy suite.” Will Andi see another side to these bachelors? However, she makes a stunning decision that changes the direction of her journey to find love, on “The Bachelorette,” MONDAY, JULY 14 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

 

Andi and Nick take a helicopter ride to an uninhabited beach on Saona Island. As they romp in the crystal blue water, it’s undeniable that there is physical chemistry between them. But is there something more going on with this somewhat complicated man than he has let on? Later at a romantic seaside dinner, Nick finds a creative way of recapping their relationship and finally lets Andi know how he feels about her. But does that necessarily mean a trip to the “fantasy suite?”

 

Andi and Josh spend the day touring Santo Domingo, mingling with locals and playing a pickup baseball game with some children, which gives her a glimpse into what their future could be like. Later, Josh shares his innermost thoughts with Andi. Is he too good to be true? Can she really trust him with her heart? Andi feels herself falling for Josh, but even as he reiterates his love for her, her self-sabotaging habits might prevent her from offering him a card to the “fantasy suite.” Will she abandon her distrust and open up to the opportunity for love?

 

On the last date of the week, Andi meets Chris for a wonderful day of horseback riding in the country. The conversation is playful and flirtatious as usual, but she must figure out if her relationship with Chris is on the same level as her other two suitors. They meet for a hot, sensual oceanfront dinner and Chris bares his soul to Andi. This is exactly what Andi needed to hear – or is it?

 

The Bachelorette has traced a different path to love with each of these three men. Andi might be sure about what she wants for her future, but she is still very nervous of the unknown as she moves into this rose ceremony. Her remaining two contenders toast to meeting Andi’s family as their adventure continues in the Dominican Republic. Will her fairytale have a happy ending or is she headed for heartbreak?

 

The three remaining men are:

 

Chris, 32, a farmer from Arlington, IA

Josh M., 29, a former professional baseball player from Atlanta, GA

Nick V., 33, a software sales executive from Chicago, IL
