Spoiler alert! People shouldn't feel too bad for Marcus Grodd, who was sent home on the latest episode of "The Bachelorette" after his hometown date. On Tuesday, July 8, Wetpaint Entertainment reported that Marcus is actually already engaged.

After Andi Dorfman let him go, he went on to compete in the spin-off "Bachelor in Paradise," which replaces the old spin-off "Bachelor Pad." While on the competition, he apparently fell for Lacy Faddoul. If that name sounds familiar, it's because Lacy competed for Juan Pablo Galavis' affections on "The Bachelor." Unlike Marcus, 26-year-old Lacy didn't even make it half way through her competition - she was eliminated in the premiere episode. For those who need a refresher, Lacy is a real estate broker as well as an owner of elderly care facilities.

Apparently, both Marcus and Lacy got quite far on the spin-off as Marcus proposed to her in the finale. Those who watched Marcus go for Andi probably aren't too surprised at the quick engagement. After all, it was Marcus who was the first guy, by several weeks, to use the big "L" word during one of their dates.

Despite having sent Marcus home, Andi thinks highly of him. She wrote on her recap for People Magazine that she believes that Marcus will make an incredible husband and father. She revealed that she left her hometown date with him feeling as if he could give her the world. So why didn't she choose him? She explained that she knew that she just "didn't have that great love with him." She added that sending him home was the toughest decision she had to make up to that point.

Marcus Grodd certainly doesn't seem to have any hard feelings about having lost Andi Dorfman. Prior to the airing of the hometown dates, he tweeted a photo of him with Andi in Brussels. If it's really true that he's now engaged to Lacy Faddoul, everything seems to have worked out in the end for him, as it did for Juan Pablo Galavis.
