“I don’t think I would be the one who would reach out to her again,” Andrew revealed on the Talking It Out podcast, which discussed his current relationship with Teddi
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS: On the Talking It Out podcast, Andrew Spencer talks about where he and Teddi Wright are now and if they have a future. The ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ star – who eliminated himself this week after declaring his love for Teddi – opened up about how he reconnected with his former connection after the show.
We know that when anyone sets foot on Paradise Beach, there is bound to be drama. But the tension between Andrew and Teddi may have started when Teddi left the beach. Season 8 of Bachelor in Paradise has more self-eliminations than ever before, and following the November 15 episode, Andrew is on this list due to his continued affection for Teddi. The couples rekindle their relationship after Bachelor in Paradise because, contrary to producers’ expectations, reality is sometimes better for love than reality TV.
Fans saw Andrew leave both Jessenia Cruz and Ecy Abedin on this week’s episode of Bachelor in Paradise and admitted his heart was still partly with Teddi. Andrew has now been on the Talking It Out with Bachelor Nation podcast where he talked about where he and Teddi are right now. Upon his split from Teddi, Andrew stated, “I don’t think we got the chance that we really wanted. I don’t think that environment was for us.” Andrew shared with co-hosts Bryan Abasolo and Mike Johnson that he had been in touch with Teddi since filming wrapped. “I’ll talk about it when we meet again, but I reached out to Teddi through a few texts,” he explained. “It wasn’t serious; I just wanted a chance to talk to her. I just want to be friends at the end of the day. We went through this experience together. We had a good time together and we laughed a lot together.”
“I just didn’t want her to completely disappear from my life like that,” Andrew continued. “I wanted to be there for them too. I know that wasn’t the easiest time for her on the show. I wanted her to know that she still has a friend and ally in me. I wanted her to know she wasn’t alone, and that’s about it.”
Bryan and Mike inquired if Andrew and Teddi had romantic intentions or if they were just friends.
“I don’t think I would be the one who would approach her again,” Andrew said. “I did and that was it. But if I ever saw her in an organic place and we had a few conversations, I’d be guaranteed a lot better than the beach. I’d be a lot smoother, and I would definitely shoot again.” “Anything through social media or texts, I definitely wouldn’t get back in touch,” he said. “That would be coming from her at this point if she was feeling had that she needed it.”
At least they follow each other on social media, so there’s a glimmer of hope for Andrew and Teddi.
The Bachelor in Paradise finale will air in two parts on November 20th and 21st at 8pm EST on ABC.
