Marcus Grodd thought he had the perfect hometown date when he took Andi Dorfman home to meet his parents. He wanted to get Andi in the end and be the final man standing in the Bachelorette finale, but she decided to send him home.
On the Men Tell All special that aired this past week, Marcus revealed that he did have some questions for Andi in regards to their breakup. But when Chris Harrison asked him about the future, he was vague. And while you may have heard that Marcus is engaged, the woman he proposed to has been a mystery.
According to a new US Magazine report, Marcus Grodd has actually gotten engaged to one of Juan Pablo Galavis’ exes from his season of The Bachelor. Her name is Lacy Faddoul and she didn’t get much air time. In fact, she was sent home during the very first rose ceremony. She didn’t make an impression on Juan Pablo, but she did catch Marcus’ attention.
Sources say that Marcus and Lacy met each other while filming Bachelors in Paradise, which is ABC’s summer entertainment. It is similar to Bachelor Pad, which didn’t air last summer. When Marcus Grodd was on the Men Tell All, he didn’t come clean about his recent engagement, and one can imagine that the producers wanted him to keep it a secret in hopes of hyping up this new show.
But it sounds like Marcus got over Andi rather fast. When they were filming hometown dates earlier this spring, Marcus told the cameras that she meant everything to him. “Andi is my soul mate. I feel that with her,” he revealed the time. “I’m ready to propose to her.” Fast forward a few months, Marcus is filming Bachelor in Paradise and gets engaged to Lacy.
Lacy, who is a nursing-home owner, may not care too much about Marcus Grodd’s role on this season of The Bachelorette. When Bachelors in Paradise was filming in Mexico, Lacy hadn’t seen the entire season of the show. And she may not know about Marcus’ past, either.
In 2010, Marcus was charged after he was caught with a stash of pain pills and anti-anxiety tranquilizers. He supposedly spent a day in jail and got his record cleared after competing “a Drug Offender Education Program, completed 32 hours of community service, and passed a number of urinalyses,” according to the report.
Marcus won’t be the next single man to find love on the next season of The Bachelor. At present time, fans of the show are debating between Chris Soules or former contestant, Arie Luyendyk Jr, who had his heart broken by Emily Maynard. Producers will most likely confirm the news during the After The Final Rose special.
The love story of Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul will air next month on ABC, right after this current season of The Bachelorette comes to an end. Will you be watching?
