As 'The Bachelorette" and boys enjoyed the romance and glory of Venice, while others showed true colors on Monday night’s episode, Andi Dorfman’s secret admirer came forward after a controversial lie detector test. The group date questioning did not sit well with one of the eight remaining bachelors who was not happy to feel “mistrusted.”

The six week mark of “The Bachelor/Bachelorette” franchise never fails to be the most boring of the season, and with weeks of listening to Andi Dorfman utter “y’all, and, like, and yah” relentlessly, toothpicks were needed to stay awake on Monday, until her date with Cody. The 28-year-old had been the only one not to receive a one-on-one date with “The Bachelorette.” He was overly excited to finally get a chance at “making her fall in love with him,” and failed miserably when she sent him home before diner was even finished. He was the only bachelor to be sent home on the one-on-one dates

The first of the dates with “The Bachelorette” went to Nick so Andi could work out the drama from the week before, which included the now rejected Cody. Nick was honest, a virtue Dorfman values, and totally upfront with what occurred the week prior. He admitted he was “falling in love” that left no doubt he would be one of the last men standing. Nick was the first to pull her aside at the cocktail party to sneak a passionate kiss, an “arrogant move” according to the men, but one that caused Andi to label him “a man.”

“The Bachelorette” received a third “secret admirer letter” and Dorfman had the men succumb to a lie detector test on the group date, which didn’t bode well with Josh. Andi tore up the results, an action she later regretted after her tiff with him. The “secret admirer” was nervous about the results and Chris finally admitted he penned the romantic letters to “The Bachelorette.” He received the group date rose for his admission accompanied by pats on the back from his cast-mates and an attitude from JJ, the pantsatpreneur.

Seven men entered the “rose ceremony cocktail party” with one in jeopardy of not returning when "The Bachelorette" airs next Monday on ABC from Brussels. Nerves were frayed, but Andi Dorfman sent home JJ, a good move after his “bitchfest” on congratulating those who get dates and roses, narrowing the playing field to six, as she nears the make-or-break hometown dates.
