‘The Bachelorette’ recap: Is Nick a villain or misunderstood hero?

This week, “The Bachelorette” visited Belgium, and Andi Dorfman picked her final four suitors, which means she’ll next travel to their hometowns to meet their families, but is there a villain among them?

‘Bachelorette’ episode six: Andi wants the whole truth and nothing but the truth

Andi chose the three men ranked by our users as the season’s frontrunnersJosh, Marcus, and Nick – and gave the fourth rose to farmer Chris, leaving Brian and Dylan out in the cold. And I do mean cold – poor Brian could hear the four remaining men laughing with Andi while he was outside giving his tearful exit interview.

But is Nick on the show “for the right reasons”? That was the question on the minds of all of his rivals. The conflict came to a head after the group date, where Nick received the week’s only early rose, securing himself a spot in the final four and winning him more alone-time with Andi. When he returned to the hotel, the other men accused him of being insincere and caring more about strategy than about Andi.

What they didn’t know was that before the group date, Nick, pretending to be Andi’s husband, sneaked into her hotel to make sure he got a private audience with her. Andi was impressed by a man willing to break the rules to spend more time with her, but did his stunt further reinforce his rivals’ accusations? Is it understandable that he would avoid friendships with the other men vying for Andi’s affections, or do they see him for who he really is?

If Nick really is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, time is running out for Andi to realize it.

  1. I think they have to create a villain every year. And they really had to stretch this season. I don’t think Nick has done anything that bad. Every season has the person who “isn’t there to make friends”. They have to stir up drama somehow. What hotel believes a stranger and just gives them someone’s room key? Not real.

  2. I think there is a good chance Nick is telling the truth. In season 7 he asked the guys to give him an example of something he has done and they couldn’t, they just kept saying he seemed focused on strategy without any reasoning. I think they might just feel threatened that he has the strongest connection with Andi. I think when you find someone right for you, you know it right away. That has been my experience at least, it has always been work to make a relationship go well for me but when I met my current bf it was instant connection and it has been two years and we are still so happy. I think if you have to try too hard it is probably not right and it seems like Nick and Andi just click.
