Bachelor Biography

Brandon Andreen joined Bachelor Nation in 2013 as a contestant on Desiree Hartsock’s season of The Bachelorette. Andreen earned a reputation for being emotional after opening up to Hartsock about his past early on, and confessing he was falling in love with her before they even had a one-on-one. 

Though Andreen was sent home in week three, he told People after the show aired that he’s cool with being known as the guy who cried a lot.

“I’m an emotional, caring person,” he said. “I wanted to share the emotions the circumstances brought out in me with America [to] let them know that there are guys like me who do struggle and have a heart.”

“Thousands of people reached out with nothing but positivity saying what an inspiration [I am] and thank you,” he added. “If one kid can look at me and say, ‘If that guy can make it, I can make it,’ then I have zero regrets about anything I said or crying on TV.”

Three years later, Andreen was invited back by the franchise to join the season three cast of Bachelor in Paradise. In Paradise, he asked out Haley Ferguson, who switched places with her twin Emily halfway through their date to see if Andreen would notice the difference (he didn’t). Andreen went home in the second week of the show. 

Where is he now?

Originally from Minnesota, Andreen is now living in Florida, where he works as a marine construction diver. He’s also done some modeling work
