Then, Viall made headlines of his own after he asked Dorfman during the "After the Final Rose" special why she had sex with him during their time in the fantasy suite if she wasn't in love with him.
"It wasn’t the most tasteful route," Dorfman told reporters today when asked about the awkward moment. "But that doesn’t negate the relationship I had with him."
"It was very classless and disrespectful and it just shows the type of person he really is," her fiancé added. "I don’t associate myself with those kinds of people and neither does Andi. ... He's of no concern to us or our lives."
Viall, who was shocked to be sent home in the season finale, later said he didn't plan to ask her that question in front of a live audience, nor did ABC producers suggest he do so. Calling her demeanor on the show "cold," he said it slipped out when he felt she wasn't being empathetic toward him.
"I didn't want, in any way, to humiliate her or make her feel that way and I feel very sorry if she did feel that way," he told reporters. "When people break up like that, those are the questions people want to know... [and] unfortunately that was my only opportunity to [ask]."
Still, Viall had nothing but nice things to say about the newly-engaged couple.
"Josh for much of the time, before things got a little awkward, was a very close friend of mine and I think the world of him and I think the world of her," he said. "I'm still hurt about it but it doesn't mean I don't wish them all the best."
