'Bachelor in Paradise' 2022: Fans 'physically cringed' as Ency begged Andrew to stay, claim she 'got some issues'
VALLARTA, MEXICO: Despite developing feelings for Ency Abedin, Andrew Spencer's heart remained with Teddi Wright, prompting him to leave 'Bachelor in Paradise' on the November 15 episode. As fans praised him on social media for his candid conversation with Jessenia Cruz, they couldn't help but mention the second-hand embarrassment they felt as Ency continued to beg Andrew to stay.
Teddi has been gone from 'Bachelor in Paradise' for several weeks after she ended her romance with Andrew. He had a brief relationship with Brittany Galvin before dating Jessenia. However, he called it quits with Jessenia following a date with Ency in week four. During the November 15 episode, Jessenia approached Andrew and expressed her displeasure with how he handled the incident. "I don’t think he ever took me as seriously as I took him," she said. "I’d really like an answer, and I’m feeling disheartened. I want him to know how invested I was in this process and that the way he handled things was a bit hurtful and insensitive."
While Andrew and Ency were playing a game, Jessenia interrupted them and requested him to chat. He left Ency to spend time with Jessenia alone. When she asked what he wanted from Paradise, he replied that he was there to find love. "You have to consider the track record," Jessenia said. "It starts with Teddi, then Brittany briefly, then I arrive, and now Ency. It’s like, you get to a point with each one, but not enough to commit or really explore something."
Jessenia accused Andrew of "skirting by" Paradise, which he said is how the process works. He stated that he wanted to test different relationships to discover whom he clicked with the best. Andrew stated that he was having a difficult time in Paradise and had almost left before Ency arrived, but he wanted to see it through with her. Ency interrupted the two in the middle of their chat to draw Andrew aside herself, but he cut her off. "I have to finish this conversation," he said. "I’m sorry. I have to. Give me a second."
After going away, Ency was enraged and yelled at Andrew. Andrew apologized to Jessenia for wasting her time, and just as they were about to reach an agreement, Ency interfered again. "I don’t know what validation you’re giving her, but I’m asking you to walk away from this with me right now if you care to pursue anything with us," she stated. Andrew informed Ency that he would come and speak with her after he had reconciled with Jessenia, with whom he claimed he wanted to be friends after this.
As the back and forth between Jessenia and Andrew continued, he eventually admitted why he wasn't into her. "My heart’s still with someone else," he said. “Teddi. That’s the reason why. I have nothing here. I tried with you, Brittany, with Ency. I can’t move on until I get clarity, and I don’t have it. I could not get to a point where I felt anything crazy [for someone]."
Jessenia understood there was nothing left between her and Andrew at that moment, so she fled the beach. Andrew then had to have the same talk with Ency, explaining that his heart belonged to Teddi. "I felt like when you walked down those stairs, I felt something I hadn’t felt with any of the other girls here," he added. "I had hope and wanted to explore that. But I don’t know now. How everything was just handled is against everything I believe. I can’t be here anymore. I swear I try to be a great guy. It’s the one thing I try to live up to."
Ency was distraught to learn that Andrew was considering leaving, and she begged and pleaded with him to stay, even breaking down in tears and clinging onto him to keep him from going. "I just can’t do it anymore," he said emphatically. "Things were said and you everything was reacted to….it’s not you. I promise you. But I’m done. I’m literally telling you I cannot anymore."
Andrew eventually walked away from the beach. "I knew what I came here for, and I lost it in the first four days," he added. "Love is just the most powerful thing in the world, and when you can share it with someone you cannot live without, that’s what I’m going to go for. I wasn’t there 100 percent. I needed to get to the bar I set with Teddi and no one could match it. When she left, I felt like I was never the same." Ency followed Andrew off the beach.
Calling Ency 'insecure,' a fan wrote on Twitter, "ency thinking she was giving boss bitch energy when she was really giving insecure." Fans also called her out for not caring about Andrew at all, "watching Ency beg Andrew to stay “just for one night” when he’s in tears saying how mentally unwell he is. YOU DONT CARE ABOUT HIM AT ALL !!!!!" Some fans also praised Andrew for finishing the conversation with Jessenia first, "Mad respect for Andrew for wanting to finish the conversation rather than taking an out with ency." Another fan calling Ency 'clingy' wrote on Twitter, "Yikes.. Ency went from insecure and rude to insecure & clingy & begging over a man she’s known 24 hours."

Some fans also talked about the secondhand embarrassment they felt during Ency and Andrew's conversation, "i literally had to walk away from my tv bc i couldn’t handle the second hand embarrassment of ency begging andrew to stay after knowing him for like 24 hours." Another fan added, "I physically cringed with every “please” from ency." Talking about Ency's issues, a fan tweeted, "Alright so Ency got some issues. Trying to hold a man captive. A man you’ve been talking to and hanging out with for a day… I gotta say I feel bad for Andrew." While calling the whole scene scripted, a fan explained, "Ency is yet another example of these reality shows being scripted. There’s no way ANYONE would want to do this to themselves on TV."
