OMG! NOT AGAIN! This guy is FREAKING OBSESSED WITH SHOWING HIS JUNK. STOP POSTING ON HIS BIG HEAD!

# 5

who is he????? I dont know he he is either.. jared please post of vanessa , zac or zanessa!

# 6

Yeah, finally, ship him out of here and put him to work. No more triathlons for a while and appearances for a long time. I want to see the pictures of him crying because there is no Tessa there to hug him and send him off in style.

Yeah, time for the pretty boy to sit in the bottom of his ship and reflect on the love he lost. Wait, will the skinny biotches all be there to send him off with a hug and a kiss? I think not! Friends my ass! Ha!

# 7

Exactly, come on Navy, why wait till December 1, 2007. Why not today, or tomorrow or November 1, 2007. Time to ship the “hunk” and model out to sea.

Tessa dear, he is going to miss you big time! Especially when their are no cameras focused on him, and no one is calling him for an appearance, and no women cozy up to him for photo opportunities. Oh wait, Turks and Caios will have to find another celebrity for their upcoming events. Yes, the end of being a celebrity is over for Andy Baldwin. It’s about time!

Tessa dear, for all the stupid things he has done to hurt you, he will have to repay ten folds, just watch and see. A fool he is! Bohoo to Andy Baldwin, let the crying and missing begin.

I love the Navy. Hats off to the Navy for realing him in.

Don’t be so hard on Andy! He asked Tessa to marry him at least twice that we know of. They were seen together in Honolulu in July and she came to join the Baldwins at the Ironman event in Louisville in late August. Most recently they were together at the Audi Best Buddy event at Monterey in early September. But she never moved to Hawaii as he clearly expected her to do, and she didn’t show up at the Ironman World Championships — the biggest athletic event he does — this past weekend. So, despite having written in her gift card that she didn’t want to go back to the life she was living before she met Andy, that’s exactly what she now appears to want to do.
I think that for all that bold confident manner with which she stepped out and told the muffin joke, and for all the 10,000 watt smile that she used on the Baldwin family in PA, the real Tessa is somewhat timid and shy and couldn’t handle the publicity pressure. So we’ll all just have to sit back and wait, and see what happens when he comes back from the Gulf in December 2008.

ciely : 10/15/2007 at 12:24 pm

who is he????? I dont know he he is either.. jared please post of vanessa , zac or zanessa!

what the hell this isnt a post about them obviously, if he had any he would share stop crying and asking. it gets annoying.

why isnt anyone reporting about the pros in this sport and only about randy andy.. just jared we dont want to see this guys face again..

Hmmm….would the rest of you rather see this man’s finely chiseled physique or more flab dangling off Britney’s back side? I’ll take shots of Andy! woo-hoo that man is one sleek machine!!! Like the tongue hanging out too…cause that’s how mine is too when I see him…LOL

andy is hot..i knew they wouldnt last!

also.. where is bevin..they should really be together

FanofTessa @ 10/15/2007 at 3:51 pm

Don’t even mention Bevin, she is a ***** and a Ho. Not even Andy Baldwin had any use for her. If he was to walk in a bar and saw the likes of her, he would never even bat an eye in her direction. Ms. “Unlucky in love” is a waste of time.

However, Andy Baldwin can put Tessa’s happiness first if he really wanted to. He said he likes a challenge, well Tessa dear, thank you, thank you for giving hima huge challenge now by forcing him to grow up. One he can’t walk away from if he really want you in his life.

Since the show wrapped for him, he has been putting his happiness first, but see what our dear Lord did to him? He is shipping him out so he can save himself from self destruction. And don’t worry, he is nothing and will never be anything without Tessa. And I am sure he will realize that before December 1, 2007, or make that now.

All his yada, yada, about the Navy and his job and deployment, and a public relationship, is baloney. He is the one who created the “public relationship” and tried to use our beautiful Tessa for his photo opportunities to build his celebrity status. He wanted a “public relationship” for his charities, his humanitarian work, his triathlons. He wanted it so now he is stuck with it. Live with it Andy Baldwin, you wanted it, now you got it.

Earth to Andy, time to wake up “celebrity” and smell the coffee. No decent lady is going to put up with your crap. They will pose for the cameras with you, laugh in your face, then ditch you. Haven’t Andy learned his lessons yet, if he wants a normal lady (not half-naked hos) to marry him, he has to put their happiness above his first and know that the rest will fall into place? The race is not for the swift but for those who endure to the end. Tessa did nothing to you that you couldn’t endure.

I can’t wait to hear how much he is climbing up the side of the ship because he misses Tessa so much and wishes he was back here with her. And Just Jared, please, be there on ship out date to get the up close and personal pictures of Andy shedding tears because Tessa is not there to see him off. I can’t wait to see the sight of those pictures. Boo Hoo to the boy, because he is far from being a man. Tessa is way smarter than him. Even she knows that no one smart human being can live their life in the limelight and glaring cameras, hence she wanted nothing to do with the media. Kudos to Tessa for staying true to herself.

Notice, he had to get his good friend Mitch to make the official announcement for him. What, he couldn’t do it himself, too embarrased and shocked to do it? Haha… If Tessa is who Andy’s heart desire, he better start behaving like a man, and responding to her needs and give her time to respond to his needs. Shame on Andy for trying to use Tessa! Andy is so used to getting what he wants that he was shocked when Tessa turned him down for Kona this past weekend. No wonder he developed a fever! Haha… Could it be he was nursing a broken heart that is now shattered into pieces? Let’s see, he was hoping to get some good photo opps for his personal myspace but big shocker, she didn’t show up. Yes, Andy is no man, he is a boy and our beautiful Tessa is way more matured than him.

Tessa Horst is a “GEM, a dream come through” and Andy knows it. Where is he going to find another “GEM” like her? Let me guess, in the back room of his next photo shoot with half naked women. Heck no! If he let Tessa slip through his hands, never in a million years will he find another Tessa.

He can stick his tongue out from here to eternity to impress the women, but he better get it back in his head, and keep his hands to himself if he desires to be with a lady like Tessa.

Such a waste of a beautiful love story!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TessaTessatessa!!! @ 10/15/2007 at 4:04 pm

#14, if a man’s finely chiseled physique is all you need in life, well by all means, have at him!

But if you are looking for a true gentleman, one who values his privacy, one who goes to work and come home to his wife and family at the end of a stressful day, then Andy Baldwin is not that man right now. Maybe, when he return from the tour he will be a changed man and he will be ready to tackle a loving relationship with our beautiful Tessa.

So, wish him well and send him on his way and see what happens when he is back here in the U.S.

This is a wake up call to Andy, the world does not revolve around him, he is not God, he is not an idol (although there are some old hags on the obession board who think he is), he is a human being who has every potential to be a fine upstanding man and a loving husband someday, if he can pass on himself and his quest for celebritydom.

I feel sorry for the Baldwin family,they must be ashamed of his behavior. No way can they condone it any longer and keep pacifying him. He has to stand up like a man and face the music.

Is Andy Baldwin ready to be a man? Well, we shall see about that in 6 – 8 months.

Thanks to the Navy for rescuing him from all the madness he engulfed himself in. He is lucky they did not kick him out on his a$$. All thanks go to the Navy. You done good!

Love him. More pics, please!

audreylittle @ 10/15/2007 at 9:18 pm

CALLING ALL 2 LEGGED SPECIE IN THE UNIVERSE BETWEEN THE AGES OF 9 AND 109. I URGE YOU TO RESIST THE PRESSURE THAT MAY COME FROM DR. B. TO RELEASE HIS SEXUAL TENSIONS.

DON’T FORGET THE COUPLE LOVES EACH OTHER AND HIS HEART BELONGS ONLY TO TESSA. HIS EGO NEED TO BE TAKEN DOWN A NOTCH FOR REAL, SO LEAVE HIM ALONE TO WORK ON IT IN PRIVATE.

YOU WILL BE USED FROM NOW UP UNTIL THE TIME HE IS DEPLOYED. IGNORE HIM AND SEND HIM ON HIS WAY TO SAN FRANCISCO OR WASHINGTON,DC, TO PATCH UP THINGS WITH TESSA.

AGAIN, DO NOT GIVE IN TO DOCTOR B. DON’T BE USED PLEASE!!!!

IF HE PREFERS TO LET HIS EGO GET IN THE WAY, THEN IT IS BETTER TO LET HIM TAKE ALL THAT PENT UP STUFF WITH HIM ON THE SHIP.

THAT WAY WHEN HE RETURNS, HE WILL REALIZE WHAT HE REALLY MISSED BACK HOME WITH A FINE, LOVING, AND ADORABLE LADY WHO LOVES HIM VERY MUCH AND JUST WANT HIM TO MEET HER PATH WAY AND MAKE HER HAPPY.

LADIES, THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH FOR READING THIS VERY IMPORTANT POST. (lol)!

OVER AND OUT.

Friends of Andy and tessa @ 10/16/2007 at 12:24 am

How many people here have been to that yahoo group where a group of obsesive women sit around all day and talk about Andy and Tessa?

I wonder how they expect Andy and Tessa to carry on a private relationship when they are always wanting to know their every move and what Andy does towards this, and what he said towards that, or what his statement meant.

When are they going to realize that Andy and Tessa’s life and relationship is all their own and none of their business? Why is it so hard for them to find valuable things to do with their own lives rather than staying up every hour of the day and night to check Andys myspaces, when Tessa will be in Hawaii, and when Andy will be deployed…. They all make me sick to my stomach.

It would be nice of them to stay out of Andy’s and Tessa’s busines for a change and go work in their city’s soup kitchen, stock the community pantries, visit the elderly, cook a hot meal for the senior citizens living in their town, volunteer to clean up the neighborhood, or go for a walk and get some fresh air.

What is wrong with them? Andy, Tessa, Andy and Tessa, Andy, Andy, Andy, Tessa, Tessa, Tessa, Andy and Tessa. What do we have to do to get them to go away and get off Andy and Tessa’s back? For goodness sake, they all need to get a life.

I’m not a fan of his normally but the ability to finish an Ironman I respect. That takes an incredible amount of work. Go Andy!

The love Tessa have for you is genuine and real, and she is hurting too. So the best thing you can do to get the relationship back on tract is to correct a few missteps and start from that point.

Let me make this short for you man:

1) HUMBLE THY SELF
2) apologize to Tessa, her family and friends
3) seek forgiveness and understanding from her
4) show up to see her before the deployment
5) send her dozens of roses every day right up to the deployment
6) spend as much time as possible with her before you leave
7) then step back and give Tessa time to process things.

Andy, she is overwhelmed right now and just need more time to sort things out, gain more understanding, trust you, and develop a coping mechanism to go through a separation.

Give it time, go with the flow and things will work out for the both of you. Trust in God.

That’s all man. Stay safe in Bahrain, work hard, write home every day, send Tessa plenty of cards, and flowers, leave us a blog when you have an extra moment, and before you least expect it, it will be time to head home to your “GEM,” Tessa, your loving and supportive family and friends, and all the wonderful fans who love and support the both of you.

All the best now to you and the love of your life!

Alan, Andy will be back home by May or June 08 at the latest. And a good six months away can and will make the heart grow fonder and it will give Andy an opportunity to check himself and recognize where he went wrong.

For example, if Tessa could not handle the publicity pressure, for Tessa’s safety and happiness, Andy should have stepped back and curtailed his activities over the summer. Instead, Andy spent a considerable amount of time right up to Kona trying to get himself in front of the cameras and his name in the media (whether positive or negative). Now the media have turn on him and it will only get worst if he doesn’t make some changes for the better.

Now, all of a sudden the media hype backfired to an extent. Rather than raving about his ongoing relationship and taking photos of him and Tessa, they were overheard gossiping about him in the triathlete world.

Don’t blame Tessa for wanting keep her life private. In fact, that is the best way to maintain some normalcy in a new relationship and some balance in their life.

Andy messed up big time, and that is why he is still holding on to “hope.” But he must know that the only way Tessa will agree to take him back will have every thing to do with how much he has grown up and matured over the next 6-8 months, how much he keeps his mouth closed about their private lives, how much he values privacy, and how muc he stays away from the pesky media, how much he ditches all his ex-girlfriends, and is ready for a fully committed relationship with her.

If Tessa cannot trust him in the future then he has no chance with her. And if every day she has to wake up to pictures and articles of him and his girl friends in a weekly magazine then he has no chance, and if everytime they will see each other and it is publicized to the whole world thru his friends, his media buddies, and Just Jared then it will prove that he does not care about Tessa, only himself.

Lt. Baldwin is a nice man, but a perfect husband for a fine Lady like Tessa, is not out of his reach, but not right now. So, Alan please tell him to take the six months alloted to him by the Navy, look deep inside himself, break out of the celebrity mold focus on husband, wife, child, dedicate his life and heart to the Lord, be ready to settle into a real and genuine relationship with an outstanding and smart young lady, it may work.

It is up to Lt. Baldwin to decide what is going to be the most important thing(s) in his life after May or June, 08.

Will it be Tessa, or will it be all about himself? That is not a question for Tessa to answer, but a viable question for Andy to ponder when he has no ex-girl friends around him, no triathlons to compete in, no photoshoots, and no friends around to shower him with affection, and more imporantly no Tessa to embrace him. When those things hit him like a ton of bricks, it whould bring him down to earth, and back to reality. I do believe he knows everything we are saying here, so we have to wait and see what he will do with it.

I admire Lt. Baldwin for all his good deed, but I feel I have to speak up and say he messed up with Tessa and may have let a warm, beautiful, romantic and caring lady slip through the palm of his hands.

Again, it is up to Andy to correct things and we are hoping and praying he takes all these comments to heart and do the right thing by Tessa.

Steve,

I think you are full of crap! NO WOMAN is worth giving up your life for! If Andy likes to do these things, then why shouldn’t he? If Tessa wants to stay home and hang with the people that she has known all of her life, let her. But Andy shouldn’t do all the giving up and whoooing her. It has gotten old on his end! JMO!
