Like so many have before, one Bachelorette contestant go so drunk that he was ultimately sent home.
On Monday's episode, Andi and the men from her group date capped off the fun day with an evening cocktail party. But soon into the party, it became clear that Craig had thrown back one too many. Although he made a valiant effort with his apology before the week's rose ceremony, it wasn't enough for Andi to give him a second chance.
Read on for host Chris Harrison's thoughts on the episode including Andi's first kiss, two nearly perfect one-on-one dates and why next week's double episode leads to an emotional breakdown.
We're only one episode into the new season of The Bachelorette, and already a war of words is brewing between the show and rejected (wannabe) contestant Chris Bukowski.

Andi Dorfman, Chris Harrison
Coming off of Juan Pablo's turbulent season of The Bachelor, it seemed that The Bachelorette could only go up. But Chris Harrison says his experience with Andi and the newest batch of hopefuls far surpassed his expectations.
"I don't know if it's because we had such a rough go on Juan Pablo's season ... but when you're with someone who's a delight and also really nice and kind and grateful it makes a huge difference," Harrison tells TVGuide.com. "Everything really permeates from the [star], and it's a ripple effect to the camera guys, producers, etc. When you're going to work for 24 hours straight and haven't showered and are in a jungle like these people do for this show, if you're doing it for someone really grateful it makes a big difference and makes the whole season better and it really comes through on air. It felt so much easier with her."
If there's one thing that became increasingly clear during Andi Dorfman's time on The Bachelor, it's that she's not afraid to speak her mind — and she certainly won't settle for being told, "It's OK." But according to the 26-year-old, there's a whole other side that she can't wait for the world to see.
"Obviously America saw a lot of the tough girl and that's what came out at the very end," Andi tells TVGuide.com. "But I am a very soft person inside, I'm vulnerable and I'm somebody who is looking for love. I'm not just the tough chick from Atlanta who's an attorney. I'm a girl who wants to be courted and have the love of her life."

Nikki Ferrell and Juan Pablo Galavis
The Bachelor might have just ended, but like most viewers at home, Chris Harrison is still wondering what the heck happened on Monday night.
At the end of the two-hour finale, Juan Pablo sent Clare home, ultimately choosing Nikki. The live audience applauded as Clare gave the Venezuelan a piece of her mind and were also dumb-founded as Nikki professed her love, only to have those feelings hardly reciprocated when he offered her the final rose. At the live After the Final Rose special, things only got more bizarre and tense as a defensive Juan Pablo refused to truly say whether or not he even loves Nikki and all but chided Harrison for asking the questions that anyone who stars on this show is supposed to be asked.
Her nightmare is over: Andi Dorfman has been chosen as the next star of The Bachelorette.
"This is the first time it's starting to feel real," Andi said after the reveal on Monday's After the Final Rose special. "I feel all in, I'm mentally all in, emotionally all in. I'm in a place in my life where I'm so ready for this... At the end of the day I cannot wait to hopefully say, 'You are the one. '"
Juan Pablo Galavis
It's no secret there's been a ton of negativity surrounding this season of The Bachelor. But while fans, celebrity and otherwise, have shared their distaste for Season 18 star Juan Pablo, it's also been one of the most talked-about seasons in the series' 14-year history. Which begs the question: Does a detested Bachelor actually make for a more successful season?
