Andy & Tessa: The Engagement's Off!

Andy & Tessa: The Engagement's Off!


Hawaii’s Bachelor Lt. Andy Baldwin and fiancee Tessa Horst have called off the engagement, according to In Touch Weekly.

“When the fantasy wore off and the reality set in, we both realized that we weren’t ready to be engaged,” Andy reveals exclusively to In Touch. “We’re taking things much slower.”

Tessa, 26, and Andy, 30, called off their engagement after a therapist suggested they do so. As of now, the relationship is still on, but social worker Tessa has postponed plans to move from San Francisco to Hawaii, where Navy doctor Andy is stationed.

“We are very much in love and committed to our relationship,” the couple continued in their statement. “With the possibility of reassignment to a new location, we decided it was not the ideal time for Tessa to uproot herself and move out [to Hawaii] right now. Our relationship continues to deepen, and we’re very hopeful about our future together.”

Andy also addressed his station in Hawaii: “I know that I have a year left and I may have the option of a three-year tour. There is also the option of a position in California. There is also a chance of me going back to finish my residency training. I am a firm believer that everything happened for a reason, and I am a firm believer that this happened in my life for a reason. Tessa came onto the show for a reason, and it is like a dream come true.”

Trivia tidbit: Of the 10 couples the ABC reality show has brought together, only two (season six’s Byron Velvick and Mary Delgado, and season seven’s Charlie O’Connell and Sarah Brice) are still together.

    JARED, you dont know sh*t…add one more couple to the list: TRISTA AND RYAN who are the only ones that are married and have a baby boy (MAX) together.

    Do some fact checks before you post something, how about it??

    Trista and Ryan are still together…with a baby!

    Just Jared Says:

    Trista was from “The Bachelorette,” not the “Bachelor”.

    You need not get all riled up either — we all make mistakes!

    Sad to know this Says:

    Hey idiot…he was referring to the Bachelor shows, rather than the Bachelorette edition(Trista and Ryan). Know your reality TV!

    That show is so sad and silly and what normal thinking human being would sign up to find a spouse on a reality show? If they are already in counseling; I think that about says it all.

    May we never hear of these two again…

    The show is fake and it produces fake couples.

    My favorites have been the ones that have stuck…this one doesn’t suprise me at all.

    How come it says “andy & tessa split” if they’re still together????

    Not so Shocking Says:

    I could have told Andy that she was not sincere. She just got caught up in the game when it looked like he was going to pick Devin (I think that’s her name). I couldn’t believe when he did a reverse and picked Tessa. The other girl seemed nuts about him and she was very athletic and adventurous like him. Guess after several months on the show, your thinking gets screwy. Better they found out now than later.

    Not so Shocking Says:

    Famous…I agree somewhat. I think Ryan (of Ryan and Trista “fame”) seemed like a nice, normal guy. Trista, on the other hand, SEEMS very fakey. I never understood why she was asked to appear on Dancing with the Stars. She lasted one episode. I am surprised they are together because she seemed like she was interested in being famous and that was it. Since it didn’t happen, maybe she realized what is really important and gave up the “dream”. Now they’ve got a baby and don’t need the fame (unlike some people).

    I guess this is the beginning of the end. Still together but not in the same state. It would be hard for anyone to leave their life and start over for a guy they hardly know. Throw in the military life and I can see how this wouldn’t work out.

    gigi Says:

    I think Trista was/is far more down to earth than she appears. They made it work because they were both regular people. She did enjoy the limelight, but I think Ryan meant more to her than anything else. That’s pretty obvious.

    [~Famous~] Says:

    Its the same cycle over and over and over again. We get a bachelor, he picks the girl, everyone is fooled into thinking they are in love and will stay together. Then they break up, we get a new bachelor and the old one is forgotten. Then the pattern repeats itself.. How is this entertaining? Lol

    Sinna Says:

    I knew it wouldn’t last. No big shock there. I agree with gigi…meeting and being engage to someone they hardly know is a big adjustment, plus adding military life to the mix is extremely stressful. And I’m speaking from experience about the military life. Myself and my ex were together and married with kids while in the Army. I got out he stayed in and it was very stressful. It’s good that she figured it out now than later when it would have been too late.

    They are not ready for engagement, what did they go on the show for? I liked Byron & Mary (she had the hottest body).

    hey JARED, i’ll get as riled up as i want!

    And PS: why make a post on “Tessa and Andy SPLIT” if they’ve only called off the engagement and have not broken up alltogether.

    Such a dumba##!

    like you do any fact checks to begin with. PuhlEase.

    Other websites are saying the exact opposite, that according to InTouch magazine they’re still in the process of planning a wedding.

    I cannot tell you how many people in my social circle (veterans) thought there was no way Tessa would hang in there. No way is she ready to walk away from her career and be a Navy wife. Any should have chosen better in the first place, but he fell for the “chase”. What a waste.

    I am sure he ran to his BFF Gatsby

    Sarah Says:

    That news made my day!!! She didn’t love him on the show. She said at the end that she was falling in love with him because she didn’t want him to pick Bevin. They are to sick people. She wanted the attention and got it. What a wonderful day.
