Who says boys don’t cry? Andi Dorfman charmed a lot of men on her journey to find love on The Bachelorette this year. As host Chris Harrison noted during the Men Tell All special on July 21, more men said the “L-word” this season than in any other previous season of the ABC show, which first aired in 2003. Several of the guys left not just with bruised egos but also with broken hearts—and they weren’t shy about showing their hurt feelings on camera.
Opera singer Bradley, for example, cried when he was sent home in the third week of the show, saying, “I love to be loved. And I love to love. I just really want it, you know?” But he wasn’t the only one who got emotional.
Dylan and fan favorite Marquel teared up, too, during their goodbyes in week seven and week five, respectively. And fourth runner-up Marcus got emotional when Andi sent him away after the hometown dates in week eight. (Marcus also showed his softer side while talking to his brother about their less-than-ideal childhood in that same episode.)
There were happy tears, too, from sales exec Nick V., who got a little misty-eyed in week seven when talking about taking Andi home to meet his family. He later held back a few sniffles during a heart-to-heart with his mom in Waukesha, Wis.
There are sure to be more tears on July 28, when Andi chooses between Nick and former pro athlete Josh on the season 10 Bachelorette finale. In the meantime, check out Us Weekly‘s video above to see Andi’s men at their sweetest and most vulnerable!
