The Bachelorette inspires all sorts of craziness in people, and apparently, it even encouraged an almost random dude to gatecrash the the first cocktail party hosted by the new Bachelorette, Andi Dorfman. Chris Bukowski, gate crashing extraordinaire and former ‘Bachelor Pad’ and ‘Bachelorette’ contestant, showed up at the mansion with roses before he was interrupted by security. Of course, the security didn’t let him into the mansion, considering that he was gate-crashing the party and all.
Apparently, Chris was so desperate to meet Andi that he begged host Chris Harrison for a chance to be let into the party, but alas, it was not meant to be. Andi was given the choice to allow Chris into her pool of contestants, but I’m guessing that she found his antics slightly too stalkerish to be romantic. But even in the face of rejection, Chris has managed to bounce back and capture his fifteen minutes of fame. He was recently interviewed by Ryan Seacrest about his decision to gate crash the Bachelorette premiere, explaining, “She [Andi] seemed like a girl I could hit it off with. I almost got on as a contestant, but it was too late, so I flew to L.A. and at that point there was no turning back.”
Chris also tweeted that he should have gone in through the back entrance, although I’m not sure what good that would have done him considering he was still rejected by Andi. Of course, Chris may have very well guaranteed himself several exclusive interviews and at least a mention in the next few press releases on the Bachelorette, so he’s done his job well. He wanted publicity, and now he’s got it.
Update: the entire Chris Bukowski gatecrash was set up by Bachelorette 2014 producers = NOT a surprise. TMZ reports: “They made it seem like they didn’t know I was coming, but they knew … the whole thing was a set up. He wanted to be on the show but he applied too late … and the producers concocted the idea of showing up unannounced.”
