According to People
's eyewitness, Murray was overheard saying, "I had no idea - I'm completely shocked."
The celebration, which included Murray's sister, Stephanie, and former Bachelor contestant Kelly Travis, continued at the next secret location, The Painted Pin. About 20 friends were reportedly waiting for Murray at the bowling alley to yell "Surprise!"
"He showed Andi some bowling tips and even got behind her, showing her how to bowl," a source told People.
Nick Viall Breaks His Silence
After Nick Viall asked Andi Dorfman why she made love to him knowing how in love with her he is on national television during the live The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose special, a lot of people called him out for his "below the belt" comment. In his blog, however, Nick thoroughly explains his side of the story.
"She never loved me," Nick wrote on his blog
. "As I sat there on national television, I tried to process this information. In my mind, I went back to that night in the fantasy suite. Though she couldn't tell me that she loved me, I'd told her in no uncertain terms how I felt. I loved her. This was no fling for me. As far as I was concerned, we'd be engaged in a few days. To me, sex between us was a big deal, and she knew it. That's why I feel Andi's decision to have sex with me was not appropriate. Either she was unsure about our relationship or - worse - she was certain she was choosing Josh. In both of those circumstances, I felt as if she didn't respect my feelings and that she should not have had sex with me."
Nick went on to say that despite everything that happened, he wishes Andi and his chosen winner Josh Murray the best. He also explains that the main purpose of him talking about the Fantasy Suite incident is to hopefully give Bachelor Nation a better understanding of the emotional repercussions of sex.
