When "Bachelorette" Andi Dorfman dumped Dylan Petitt, the tears he shed weren't over her. The Boston Herald reports that Dylan, who appears in the upcoming "Bachelor in Paradise" confessed in an interview that he was heartbroken when he had to leave the show, but it wasn't because he fell in love with Andi.
In fact, the accountant from Boston admitted that he was ready to leave the show, but wasn't all that happy that he had to leave a budding bromance behind. He tells the Herald, "I was upset because I made two of my best friends off that show," namely Chris Soules and Brian Osborne. "They will be my best friends for the rest of my life."
There was very little drama on the show this season and a whole lot of bromancing, something that was really evident on the "Men Tell All" special. Even if the guys weren't all that interested in Andi, traveling with their new best guy friends was probably a good reason to stick around. Of course, some would say that they were not there for the right reasons, but it's hard to imagine anyone falling in love with someone you get to spend about 49 seconds with.
Even if he didn't find love, at least Dylan found friendship on the show. He also went on to become a cast member on the upcoming ABC reality show, "Bachelor in Paradise," but it doesn't sound like either show was conducive to him finding love.
"It wasn’t quite the paradise that you might think," Dylan tells the Herald, "There were cockroaches on the floor and chicken and rice for dinner every night."
As for Dylan's opinion on how everything turns out for Andi on the season finale that airs July 28, he is skeptical that it will work out if she picks Josh Murray, the rumored winner of this season's show. Andi may not get all the attention she craves if she ditches self-professed front-runner, Nick Viall.
Dylan states that "Andi wants to be with someone where she’s No. 1." He feels she might "have an issue" with Josh's involvement with his brother Aaron's new career with the NFL. Perhaps her hometown date with Murray foreshadowed how Andi may end up feeling a little sidelined with the family's preoccupation with Aaron, who was recently drafted as a QB for the Kansas City Chiefs.
Although Dylan admits that the isn't sure who she picks and he's just making assumptions, it's clear that he won the final rose when it comes to friendship. He's hoping to see one of best bros, Chris Soules, picked as the next "Bachelor" because he's not only his friend, but he's "an unbelievably good guy" who "works hard" and "does everything right."
That's quite an endorsement. Let's hope that ABC listens to Dylan because Chris would be a refreshing change after the last "Bachelor" mishap with Juan Pablo.
And as far as Dylan goes, it's likely that most fans would agree, we'd like to see him find love, too.
