Die-hard fans of The Bachelor franchise remember Andi Dorfman and Nick Viall’s complicated history on the show.

Subsequently, Andi and Josh called off their engagement and she wrote a tell-all book about her time on The Bachelor titled, It’s Not Ok, which catapulted her to best-selling author status. The still-single reality star is making front-page news again with her appearance on The Bachelor season 21. She steps in to offer Nick relationship advice, as he makes the most difficult decision of his life choosing between his four finalists: Corinne, Raven, Vanessa, and Rachel.

What am I supposed to say?” as she casually walks into his New York hotel room and settles down with a glass of wine.

The woman who broke Nick’s heart is back and in his hotel room! Don’t jump to conclusions just yet; she is not a wild card entry on The Bachelor season 21. Andi is merely there to lend a friendly ear. In the preview, Nick is seen saying, “You’re supposed to be honest” and “I mean, this is blowing my mind!” As the exes catch up, Nick opens up about his big fear of ending up alone on The Bachelor. Wiping away tears, Nick explains, “I’m not sure what’s going to happen. I have a lot to think about, and I’m running out of time. I have fallen in love twice here, and I’ve had my heart broken twice. My biggest fear is that that will happen again. If I was the first Bachelor to get rejected, I’ll be devastated.”
