Once upon a time, Chris Soules and Andi Dorfman seemed destined to be the next big couple of Bachelor Nation, and fans were rooting for them.
Despite pouring his heart out to Andi to during her season of The Bachelorette, she was not feeling it, and he was eliminated right before the end.
In the live segment of the season finale, she revealed that she was having issues with the idea of living in Iowa and did not want to have to make sacrifices for her.
On top of that, she felt like the relationship lacked a solid foundation, and that’s why Soules eventually came in third place. That was the season Josh Murray won, and we all know how badly things went for the winning couple.
Ever wonder what it would have been like if Chris eked out a victory? Well, we may be about to get an answer to that question since he and Andi have been spotted dining together in New York.
TMZ first shared pictures of the pair indulging in some lunch at The Dubliner, so we do know they have been meeting up with one another, but could a relationship really be on the cards?
A tipster hit up TMZ to reveal that the pair is just friends and that Soules was in town for fellow Bachelor Nation alum Sharleen Joynt’s wedding.
Meanwhile, a report in People claimed the pair have “stayed friendly for years.”
“Andi has always wanted the best for Chris,” the insider says. “She felt terrible for everything he’s been going through.”
In case you’ve been living under a rock, we’ll provide you a little refresher on the matter.
Chris was arrested earlier this year after leaving the scene of a fatal car crash that left Kenneth Mosher dead. The star eventually plead not guilty, and his trial is set for January.
So, there’s every reason to believe that Andi was reaching out to a friend, but could it develop into something more? Probably, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
But wouldn’t their relationship make for a great new entry into the ABC dating series? Could you imagine they actually got together, married and went the full way?
They did have a lot of fans when they were together, but would Andi be willing to relocate this time around? Take note, ABC.
What do you think about all of this?
Would you be glad if they got together?
