Will Andrew Spencer be the next 'Bachelor'? Fans unearth problematic tweets
With old tweets resurfacing, Andrew Spencer's dream to be the next 'Bachelor' might be a far reality
This season of 'The Bachelorette' has had its fair share of drama. And, with the segment 'Hometown' coming up, where Katie Thurston meets with the remaining contestants' families, it's all down to the wire.
With the final four being Blake Moynes, Greg Grippo, Justin Glaze and Micheal Allio, Katie is inching closer towards finding her happily ever after. But, having created strong bonds with multiple contestants so far, it's always a 'what if?' scenario. And if there is anyone who made her feel like he's the one that got away, it would have to be Andrew Spencer.

Katie and Andrew had great chemistry, and the two got along well. Andrew saw a future with Katie, and she too believed they had something special. But seeing that she had to make a decision, she chose to send Andrew home last week. The pair were all teary-eyed and upset as Andrew left. The mood was gloom until an unexpected guest showed up at Katie's door - Andrew. He said he wanted to make sure she was okay and left her a note saying that he would be waiting. After a dramatic reunion, Katie asked if he'd like to re-join the cast. Andrew declined, saying that he could no longer fight for her like this if he couldn't have her. The entire 'Bachelorette' Nation was Team Andrew, calling for him to be the next 'Bachelor'.
While he seems like the obvious choice, there is more to Andrew than meets the eye. A Reddit thread has recently revealed that Andrew has made misogynistic, fatphobic, or racially insensitive statements. He even tweeted "Let me be the next Bachelor" back in 2014. This definitely questions his motive to be on the show, seeing that fellow contestant Thomas Jacobs was made into the villain of this season for expressing the desire to become the next 'Bachelor', should his romance with Katie not work out. Andrew's tweets are currently unavailable on his profile.
Neither Andrew nor Katie have addressed these tweets as of now. However, should Andrew become the next Bachelor, he will be the second black man to do so, after Matt James. This season, Andrew isn't the only one who made it to the top and has had dirty laundry being aired out. Top four finalist Justin Glaze took to' 'Bachelor Happy Hour' podcast to apologize for tweets he made previously, between 2009 and 2011. He allegedly belittled Black women, promoted colorism and used homophobic slurs, as reported by Page Six.
"… I have no issue with owning up and apologizing from the bottom of my heart for the really hurtful words that I used," Glaze said, while addressing the issue. "The last thing that I want to do is run from it. That's not who I am. I just want to speak from the heart, and hopefully, people will get an understanding of where I was then versus where I am now." he added.
'The Bachelorette' airs Mondays at 8 pm ET on ABC.
