On the season premiere of "The Bachelorette," Andi Dorfman met 25 men all vying for her affections.
Former "Bachelorette" and "Bachelor Pad" contestant Chris Bukowski hoped to be among them, and crashed the filming.
"She seemed like a girl I could hit it off with," he told Ryan Seacrest. "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."
In the end, Dorfman, 27, elected not to meet the reality TV star, who previously appeared on Emily Maynard's season. Bukowski later reflected that he should have been more aggressive about things.
"I should have went through the back entrance," he tweeted. "@AndiDorfman you looked amazing, by the way."
