‘The Bachelorette’ Episode 5 Bumped Back a Week & Here’s Why

andi dorfmanJust as we were getting sucked into Bachelorette Andi Dorfman's drama -- record scratch! We get this unwelcome announcement: Episode 5 of The Bachelorette is getting bumped -- to Monday, June 16. But we were just getting to not like Andi! In a good way, I mean. The show was getting juicy, with Eric Hill calling Andi out on being "TV Actress" McFakey Pants. We're dying to find out if Andi does some soul-searching and lets someone on the show see her true self -- or if there ain't no soul there to search for at all. We'll have to wait, and it's all because a much stronger, more powerful woman is shoving Andi out of the way.

Next week's Bachelorette will be replaced with a special interview with former First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Hey Andi, let Hill show you how to be a badass and your most authentic self. Isn't that deliciously ironic? After all that noise we've made about Andi being so tough and assertive, she gets knocked out of her slot by someone way tougher than she'll ever be. I just ...

Okay, fine, I'm a nerd.

Anyway, the ABC schedule still has The Bachelorette airing in the 8-9 p.m. ET/PT slot, it just won't be a new episode. Maybe they'll do an encore episode? It's probably not sneak peeks behind the scenes or anything fun like that or they'd be hyping it.

What they could have done with that time slot is have the guys all sit around gushing about how perfect Andi is and how they can't possibly find a single flaw in her. Oh wait, that's every episode. Could the guys possibly BE more fake about their adoration of Andi? Okay, we get it -- you all want to win.

We'll see who pulls ahead of the pack on June 16. Sadly, we know Eric will leave us. We hope someone else has the nerve to push Andi to show her true self.

What kind of Bachelorette recap do you think ABC will air next Monday?
