    Final Thoughts on Bachelor 10

    Boy - was I "Fleissed" this season - I was convinced Andy would choose Bevin. I must say I didn't shed tears of joy for Andy and Tessa, I shed tears of sadness for the way Andy so passionately told Bevin he loved her only to reject her a couple of days later.

    According to Andy he and Tessa have been building on their relationship since the finale - but do you really think it will last? Since Tessa was so unsure up to the end and Andy had to keep convincing her to stay - is he going to have to keep convincing her of the choices he wants to make in their relationship? Tessa basically has to give up her life and move to Hawaii and fit into his. When she has time to think about this as they try to fall in love again in the real world do you think being with Andy is truly what Tessa wants long term? Is she really ready to do what Andy says....the grocery shopping, cooking, etc. or did she just get caught up in the newness of it all? Can she handle the pressures of their very public relationship?

    I thought Jen and Lorenzo would last six months and they only lasted one week. How long will Tessa and Andy last? I personally am not sure. I would have given their relationship more of a chance if Andy hadn't been so caught up in the passion he felt with Bevin. Remember when Jimmy Kimmel told Andy to move on because for the rest of his life his relationship with Tessa will be compared with the other relationships he had on the show? Was Jimmy foretelling what will really happen in the future?

    Jennie - Big hugs to you first thing.

    The questions you ask, could you not ask them of Bevin as well? This bachelor was very forthwright from the beginning that the woman he chose would have to fit into 'his' life. From moving to Hawaii, to Navy life, etc.

    Is it egotistical, yes, traditional is another way to put it. Andy did not pretend to want anything else. He stated openly he wanted a wife who would put the family above a career. He's not a bad guy for his beliefs, just traditional. I happen to respect those values.

    Is Tessa ready for this, who knows? I don't think Andy will have her pregnant and barefoot in the kitchen tomorrow, but he clearly wants a wife and children.

    Only time will tell, and I wish Andy and Tessa the best.

    Your first paragraph is spot on, and what will Tessa think when she sees that scene?

    I can see their first argument " I should have chose Bevin".
    I give it six months.

    You want to know if we think that Andy and Tessa's relationship will last? Honestly, no... I know that I could be completely wrong, but I have never seen a love story between them, and I know I'm not the only one, although we really are a minority. I give them three to six months (if not less). I told one of the FORTers right after Danielle was sent home that I wouldn't be surprised if Andy realized it was a great mistake to let her go and a year from now announced his engagement with her (ok, I admit that was kind of a wish since I just loved her, but I still wouldn't be surprised)... Also, I don't believe that Tessa is the love of his life if less than 24 hours before asking her to marry him, he could still see himself proposing to her OR Bevin!!! A year from now, I could rather see Andy with Bevin or even Dani (if they gave him a second chance) than with Tessa...
    Live well, laugh often, love with all your heart and as though you've never been hurt before

    I definitely think Andy and Tessa will have a long and loving relationship. Whether it will result in marriage, who knows? Virtually all of us have been deeply in love but for one reason or another it just didn't stand the test of time. I think Andy and Tessa have a very good chance though because I really think their love is true and honest, and that they managed to work it out even though it began in such an artificial environment. It isn't a created 'by tv' love, it's a created 'in spite of tv' love.

    I'm especially encouraged by both their attitudes. Andy said in interviews that he was so anxious for the show to be over so they could fall in love all over again in real life, and that after these weeks of waiting they're more in love than ever so obviously Tessa was feeling the same way. I think we're going to see a very happy couple on the show tonight.

    I dont' know if they will last - but I think they have a better shot then if he would have chosen Bevin. I know I am not alone, when I say I was sure he was going to choose Tessa early on. She intrigued him.

    Bevin - well - he is a Navy Lieutenant - and she looked so trashy with her tatoos everywhere. Plus she was just too open. Always saying the right thing, wanting to win a contest. In my opinion, he did seem to have genuine feelings for her. However, I just knew it was Tessa he really wanted.

    I think it is more hoenst that Tessa was scared of the process, that is more normal. She didn't want to be hurt. Bevin was just a little too open, a little too phony.

    Plus add in how traditional he is etc. and she is already a divorcee, I think he kept her around for the fun of it.

    I hope Tessa and Andy last. I think they genuinely looked happy.

    It must be just me I was a Danielle fan, but saw the love between Andy and Tessa.......Andy oozes with his feeling for Tessa on the hometown dates I knew Andy was a gonna, the man LOVES this woman...The only thing Andy was waiting for was reassurance from Tessa once he recieved that checkmate.........Even though he told Bevin, he loved her go back an look at the tape, it wasn't nearly as passion as when he was saying it to Tessa, he was like a giddy kid when he was saying it to Tessa........I wager now that the lust for Tessa is just as overpowering, because Tessa strikes me as the kind of woman who is very private with passion an I think Andy is very happy with his choice.......Will it last I think this one has one of the best chances because I truly feel that they love each other.......

    Yes, I think they will last. Andy took this very seriously, and he did love both girls....but he was in love with Tessa. And Tessa stayed so true to herself. I see a wonderful life together in the future.

    He sure has some explaining to do to Tessa about those comments he made to Bevin. At least he told Bevin he respected her and that was something at least.

    As far as Tessa and he goes? Who knows! I am sure that the media will keep us in the loop all about it.

    Personally I give it 1 month if that. Tessa does not seem to be the type of girl who can past such comments made by Andy over his love for another woman. She seems to me that she will have doubt about his love for her and she should. Seems to me that that since it took Tessa so long to open up to him, that she will not be amused this morning about last nights show and why should she? I wouldn't be.
