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.

    Sarah, don’t gloat too hard as they are still a dating couple yet simply not engaged with the big diamond. One of the many reasons Andy Baldwin chose Tessa Horst over the runner-up, Bevin, was her “honesty”, realism, intelligence, beauty (inside/outside), and their families have similar backgrounds. During the show Andy discovered what he wanted and it wasn’t a “roll in the hay with Bevin”. In today’s contemporary world, that doesn’t make any woman special!

    I know. I know. It’s so unattractive to say “I told you so,” BUT I told you so. He’s gay. Of course, he doesn’t want a roll in the hay with her. That should have been your first clue.

    Neither of them win any prizes for sincerity.

    I loved Andy and Tessa together. I am sad about the news because I do feel like this is the beginning of the end of the relationship. I always felt he was so much more into her than she was into him !

    I have watched every Bachelor episode of every season and was POSITIVE she was not into him enough for this to work.
    He seemed very insecure and from my experience with men…had a “small *****” syndrome.
    Too touchy-feely and scared she would walk away at any second.

    IMO, he got what he deserved. Bevin truly had strong feelings for him and they were both very competitive and similar in personality. BUT….he had to go for the “good girl.”
    Well, the “good girl” isn’t going to do something crazy like uproot her life and move to Hawaii for some dude she really isn’t in to.

    Bevin would have went out there because she doesn’t seem to have that, “what would everyone think if it doesn’t work out?” -thing going on.

    Poor Andy….he was in love with the idea of a perfect woman….and should have went with his heart.

    I bet if Andy called Bevin she would jump at the opportunity to be with him. She was the exact opposite of Tessa, way too into andy ! Hopefully Bevin is finially over him but I doubt it.

    This news really made me sad – well, as sad as reality TV can be in my life. Anyway, I was rooting for them to break the mold and go the distance, It’s too bad really.

    I can not believe that he called off his engagement to Tessa. I hope they get back together. They are such a cute couple. I really do like them both. She is alot better looking than Bevin.

    To the posts about Trista and Ryan….

    The reason they did not mention them as a couple that have stayed together is because they are talking about the show, “The Bachelor”.

    ….Trista was on “The Bachelorette”

    …looks like you should do YOUR homework…..

    Bevin, what a totally stupid name.
    Yeah, sure, I know-how relevant is that.
    About as relevant or as important as any of the rest of this moronic stuff.
    Andy’s a tool.
