The Bachelorette's Brandon Andreen Is Cool with Being the Guy Who Cried on TV

Originally posted 06/14/2013 05:15PM

Crying is common on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.

Most of the time the tears belong to women scorned. But Brandon Andreen, 26, challenged that stereotype during his courtship of Desiree Hartsock. And things got especially emotional when the arrival of a jilted single mom dredged up Andreen's abandonment issues.

The painting contractor, 26, spoke with reporters via telephone from Costa Mesa, Calif., about crying on TV, the scandal over Brian's alleged ex-girlfriend and why he thinks Brooks is the best guy for Desiree.

Driving up the windy road in Malibu to where I would be starting a new chapter as The Bachelorette, I had no idea what to expect. When Chris Harrison showed me my new home, I was awed by the enchanting view of the ocean. I find solace and peace at the beach, so having such an amazing view of it made me feel right at home and ready to begin this journey.
