He's a bit of a fame whore, I think. Have you checked out his web site, Andy Baldwin.com? I know it's up there because of triathlon sponsorship and all that, but you *can* be a triathlete without one of these things ....Originally Posted by coop2;2411850;
This whiff of fame-whorishness is one of several reasons that I don't think he'll ultimately last with Tessa (the free birdism that you mentioned is another). ... Tessa has grown up around the rich and famous and doesn't have a hidden lust to be in that world, clearly, and she's also pretty clearly camera shy and so on. Andy is *so* not. Already last night I saw him envisioning her on his arm as a fabulous accessory as he was being honored for this that and the other thing and was strolling through the spotlight, and I just don't see that being Tessa -- either the spotlight part or the arm-candy part.
