'The Bachelorette': Does Katie regret eliminating Andrew? A look at his emotional note
The elimination of Andrew Spencer, goodbyes and a beautiful note, this episode of the 'The Bachelorette' had it all
With every passing episode of 'The Bachelorette', Katie Thurston is one step closer to finding her happily ever after. However, with every elimination also comes the question — will the man she sent home be the one that got away?
In this episode, fans saw Brendan Quinn leave the show, seeing that he felt his relationship with Katie was not moving forward. She then bid farewell to Mike Palenta, seeing that she believed they hadn't formed a strong enough connection to move forward. And finally, the most shocking elimination of them all was that of Andrew Spencer.

Choosing to send Andrew home was a tough decision, but one that Katie had no choice but to make. The pair got extremely emotional but the deed was done. However, Andrew had some unfinished business. He showed up at her door the next day, taking a still upset Katie by surprise. He mentioned that he didn't want to leave on a sad note and definitely didn't want to see her cry.
Fans were emotional seeing the two have a heart-to-heart conversation, allowing them to both have some closure. "Andrew S. came back because he didn't want his relationship with Katie to end on a sad note omg #TheBachelorette," tweeted a fan. "Andrew coming back to make sure they left things on a smiling note?! plz we don't deserve him #TheBachelorette," agreed another. "nah because if anyone ever did that for me I would marry them on sight, he obviously cares about her SO MUCH #TheBachelorette #BacheloretteABC #bachelorette," tweeted a fan.
While Andrew came back to make sure Katie was okay, fans could not get over the fact that he handed Katie a note before leaving. Inside, it read that he will always be waiting, should she change her mind. Katie wasted no time rushing down the stairs to catch him one last time, leaping into his arms for a hug. She asked that if there was a way that he could stay back, would he consider it. However, Andrew declined the offer. Although he does have feelings for her, fighting for her love was far too much for him.
While some fans find out that he didn't stay, despite his note implying he could, others considered it a power move. "Why did you write a note saying that you'll be waiting, then say no when she offers you to stay LMAO #TheBachelorette," asked a fan. "Andrew rejecting Katie so he wasn't the one rejected #TheBachelorette #BacheloretteABC," explained another. "Andrew just made the right decision, the BEST decision. That was one of the most real and heartwarming endings on #TheBachelorette," tweeted a fan. "Andrew: i'll be waiting for u :,) Katie: omg come back Andrew: #TheBachelorette" joked a user.

Although he didn't win Katie's love, fans seemed convinced he's earned himself a spot as the next Bachelor. "So Andrew is the next Bachelor right? #TheBachelorette," asked a curious fan. "Andrew: I wanted to say yes, but maybe I could be the bachelor #TheBachelorette," joked another. "I've never seen such a blatant Bachelor edit in my entire life and I am 100% here for it #TheBachelorette #Bachelorette," pointed a fan.
