CHICAGO, ILLINOIS: On the 'Talking It Out' podcast, Andrew Spencer discusses where he and Teddi Wright are now and whether they have a future. The 'Bachelor in Paradise' star, who self-eliminated this week after declaring his love for Teddi, talked about how he approached his former connection after the show.

We know drama is bound to ensue when someone sets foot on Paradise Beach. 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 after the November 15 episode, Andrew has joined that list because of his continued affection for Teddi. The couples renew their relationships after 'Bachelor in Paradise,' because, contrary to the producers' expectations, the reality is sometimes better for love than reality television.

Fans witnessed Andrew leave both Jessenia Cruz and Ency Abedin in this week's episode of 'Bachelor in Paradise,' admitting that his heart was still partially with Teddi. Andrew has now been on the 'Talking It Out with Bachelor Nation' podcast, where he discussed where he and Teddi are right now. On his separation from Teddi, Andrew stated, "I don't think we got the shot we really wanted. I don't think that environment was for us." Andrew informed co-hosts Bryan Abasolo and Mike Johnson that he had contacted Teddi since the shooting had concluded. "I do talk about it at the reunion, but I did reach out to Teddi through a couple of texts," he explained. "It was nothing serious; I just really wanted to get a chance to have a conversation with her. I just want to be friends at the end of the day. We went through this experience together. We spent a good time together, and we laughed a lot together."

"I just didn’t want her to be completely out of my life in that way," Andrew continued. "I also wanted to be there for her. I know that wasn’t the easiest time for her on the show. I wanted to let her know that she still had a friend and ally in me. I wanted her to know she’s not alone, and that was pretty much it."

Bryan and Mike inquired if Andrew and Teddi had romantic intentions or if they were just friends.

"I don’t think I’d be the one to reach out to her again," Andrew stated. "I did that and that was it. But if I ever saw her in an organic place, and we had a couple chats, I guarantee I would be a lot better than I was on the beach. I’d be a lot smoother, and I’d definitely shoot my shot again." "Anything over social media or texts, there’s no way I’d reach out again," he said. "That would come from her at this point if she felt like she needed to."

At least they follow each other on social media, so there is a glimmer of hope for Andrew and Teddi.

The 'Bachelor in Paradise' finale will air in two parts on ABC on November 20 and 21 at EST.
