‘Bachelorette’ Andi Dorfman’s Season Premiere Crashed by Ex-Contestant [PHOTO]
Chris Bukowski goes all out for his lady, or…the lady he wants to be his, anyway. The previous ‘Bachelorette’ contestant hoped that by crashing Andi Dorfman’s cocktail party on the season 10 premiere he might earn himself a spot back on the show.
The 27-year-old camped outside of the ‘Bachelor’ mansion for a week in an attempt to earn himself a spot as the twenty-sixth contestant vying for Andi’s attention, much like Kacie B. did for Sean Lowe’s season of the ‘Bachelor.’
A source revealed to Us Weekly that the Chicago native first spotted Andi in her famed Fantasy Suite episode on Juan Pablo Galavis’ season. “She’s beautiful and career-driven. [Chris] thought there was a chance it could work, so he reached out to producers,” said the source.
And according to Chris, it nearly worked out. “I almost got on as a contestant, but it was too late,” he revealed. So what’s a guy to do? Fly to Los Angeles and stake out the ‘Bachelor’ premises, of course.
“We have a party crasher,” ‘Bachelorette’ host Chris Harrison announced to Andi on the first episode. “He’s been on the show before. It’s Chris Bukowski.”
Chris first fought for Emily Maynard’s heart on the show back in 2012, before gaining a pretty nasty reputation for his womanizing ways on ‘Bachelor Pad.’ Perhaps that’s why Andi quickly rejected his premiere-crashing efforts to win her over, though she claimed on the show her decision was because it wouldn’t be fair to the other contestants.
“I can’t give up like this…I’m not leaving,” Chris told the host after being turned away. He didn’t have much of a choice — security escorted him off the premises shortly after. Yikes.
In good humor, he later posted a photo of himself to Instagram holding a bouquet of roses with the caption, “Pre-break-in! Safety first! #seatbelt #bachelorette.”
