Andrew S. is the 26-year-old who spends half the year as a pro football player in Vienna, Austria, and the second half of the year living in Chicago. The Bachelorette star came in with plenty of charm and instantly connected with Katie. 

Meanwhile, Katie recently spoke with ABC 7 Chicago and hinted that Andrew is one to watch. 

“All I’ll say to that is [Andrew’s] one to keep an eye on, for sure,” Katie said in June 2021.

Now, Bachelor Nation fans might know Andrew’s cousin, Clay Harbour, who was on Bachelor in Paradise Season 6. Clay also spoke with Us Weekly and revealed Andrew is “hilarious.” 

“I just told him to be himself, make her laugh and just go out there and have fun,” Clay told the publication of Andrew. “It’s a cool experience. And, you know, just try to be as open as possible because it’s such a fast process. You got to kind of wear your heart on your sleeve a little more than you would in the real world.”

The Bachelorette preview of Katie and Andrew’s date has many fans hoping for endgame results. But for now, Bachelor Nation fans will just have to wait and see what happens next.

That said, franchise spoiler guru Reality Steve already shared what happens in the Bachelorette finale. According to the blogger, Katie will not end up with Andrew at the end of her journey. But he will supposedly end up in the final four, which means it’s likely he’ll receive a Hometown date.

Meanwhile, Reality Steve claimed that Blake Moynes will win Katie’s final rose. But he was unable to confirm when the final three men are eliminated. Reality Steve wrote:

The thing I’m unsure of as of this moment is HOW we get to that point. I don’t know how the final 4 shakes out just yet in terms of who goes home when, so that’s the next thing I’m trying to find out. … Whatever the case, she’s with Blake, and they’re engaged. The end.

The Bachelorette Season 17 airs Monday nights on ABC.
