Needless to say, all everyone is talking about today is last night's epic Bachelorette finale! And it's not just fans who are reacting to Andi Dofman's engagement to winner Josh Murray. Former Bachelor and Bachelortte stars have been sounding off on the finale episode all day long.
Reacting to runner-up Nick's shocking sex revelation on live TV Monday night, alum and last season's Bachelor winner Nikki Ferrell tweeted, "Gee I wonder who told Nick to say that....How the producers of @BachelorABC sleep at night is beyond me. #trash" (Nick later told E! News of Ferrell's allegation, "It's 100 percent false. They had nothing to do with it. I think they were as surprised as anyone else...I take full responsibility for what I said whether it was a good idea or not. Its a tough position.").
She added, "But on a positive note so beyond happy for @AndiDorfman and @jmurbulldog I bet it feels so good to be free! #congrats."
Ferrell's beau and controversial Bachelor star Juan Pablo Galavis also tweeted. "BEST wishes to @AndiDorfman and @jmurbulldog... And YEAP, @Nikki_Ferrell and I were VERY excited with the @KCChiefs DRAFT selection..." he wrote.
Former Bachelor Sean Lowe blogged about the finale in a post titled "Dear Andi, Josh Is Not Your Soul Mate." "You see, what Andi and Josh don't know is that they are just now embarking on the hard part," Lowe blogged. "Nobody told Catherine and me that our toughest challenge would come after we rode those elephants off into the sunset. Falling in love while globetrotting the world was the easy part. Learning how to love someone you've spent a collective 20 hours with is the really hard part."
He continued, "So if I had the chance to give Andi and Josh some advice after the fact? I think I'd tell them that the post-show/pre-marriage time frame will be one of the most challenging. But mainly, I'd tell them not to elevate the other to the level of "soul mate." It sets everyone up for unrealistic expectations and emphasizes the romance over the hard work of building a relationship."
As for Desiree Hartsock, she tweeted, "SOOO incredibly happy for the beautiful couple!! Congrats @AndiDorfman and @jmurbulldog ! You're free now, enjoy it! #TheBachelorette."
