Ever heard of the saying "saving the best for last?" Well, that's definitely what ABC's The Bachelorette was doing when Josh Murray was the last to step out of the limos on the Season Premiere. The 29-year-old former professional baseball player approached this competition with ease, as I assume he would approach almost anything. He had a cool and careless air about him that clearly attracted Andi from the get-go.
At 6'2", it wasn't just Josh's height that dwarfed the other competitors. His movie star smile, infectious personality, and Josh's smooth one-liners had Andi, and this girl, swooning from the very moment he stepped onto the Bachelorette premises. It's usually pretty easy to tell right from the beginning, based on the Bachelorette's reaction, who will be the ones to beat; Josh and Marcus were two early stand outs who would, at minimum, make it to Hometown Dates. Here we are, nearing the close of this season, and Marcus and Josh still stand. But, at the end of the day, only one will be crowned the winner of the season and inevitably, on bended knee, have the chance to ask Andi for her hand in marriage.
I'd like to think that man will be Josh, and after you see all the reasons that he's the one for her, you'll have to believe it too:
HE COULD STRIP FOR HER
Your marriage is less likely to fizzle out when you've got a big hunk of man like Josh in the picture. A man who's willing to shake his groove thang for you is ultimately a keeper. Every girl needs a little Magic Mike action every once and awhile, right?
HE LOVES DOGS... SHE LOVES DOGS
Josh is engaged in a love affair with his bulldog, Sabel.
Andi helped raise money for dogs in need by stripping down to her skivvies with Juan Pablo.
BECAUSE HE NEVER GAVE HER A LAMP
This one's kind of self-explanatory. Weirdest first impression ever. "The one" doesn't show up with a lamp because he doesn't have to.
THEY ARE BOTH HUGE USA SOCCER FANS
JOSH IS AARON MURRAY'S BROTHER — We've Got a Point, We Promise
Andi's family members are huge UGA fans, and Josh's younger brother is Aaron Murray. That definitely gives Josh bonus points, right?
THEY BOTH WEAR, LOVE, AND LOOK GOOD IN SCARVES
Andi essentially dubbed this the season of scarves, but nobody looked half as good in a knit neck warmer like Josh. Andi herself was seen wearing a few scarves as well. The couple who wears scarves together has warmer necks together.
HE'S THE PERFECT HEIGHT TO PUT HIS ARM AROUND HER
Andi's also wearing a scarf in this picture. Match made in heaven much?
HE COULD COACH THEIR PROSPECTIVE SON OR DAUGHTER'S LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL TEAM
Considering he was kind of a professional baseball player and all...
SPEAKING OF KIDS, THEIR KIDS WOULD BE FREAKIN' ADORABLE
Even if those "what would our kids look like?" mashups are a little freaky.
HE HELPS HER RECREATE ICONIC TITANIC POSES ON BOATS
She's two seconds from getting "Come, Josephine, in my flying machine" in her ear.
THEY BOTH LIVE IN ATLANTA, SO THERE WON'T BE ANY conflict OVER WHERE TO LIVE
Nothing but laughs and smiles ahead for you, Andi.
Neither one can sing or dance
Exemplified by this picture, and the Boyz II Men group date in general.
THESE TWO ARE KIND OF MADE FOR EACH OTHER...
All Andi has to do at this point is choose the right guy, which is Josh. If this list doesn't convince Andi, and you, that Josh is "the one," I have no faith left.
All Josh has to do is get serious enough about Andi to propose. Look at this face. Does this look like the face of a guy who isn't serious? Make me proud, Joshy!
