Josh Murray was in the running to become the next Bachelor after his split with Andi Dorfman earlier this year. Fans really wanted him to find love on the show, and his name kept coming up again and again. But Chris Soules, who Andi dumped after hometown dates, ended up taking the role as the next Bachelor. Josh was left to pick up the pieces after Andi suddenly ended their engagement. And even after Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season, Josh’s name came up again in the running with Nick Viall and Ben Higgins.
But Josh Murray seems to be doing just fine without the show. After his split with Andi Dorfman, Murray went to the park with his dog, Sabel, in hopes of picking up some ladies. And a few weeks ago, Murray announced a new romance with girlfriend Anna von Staehle. While hearts broke across the country as he was no longer single, it sounds like all is well in the world now — he is back on the market.
According to a new Us Weekly report, Josh Murray may have ended his romance with Anna. Usually, fans will see pictures of her on his Instagram feed, but all of the pictures have been removed. Last month, the two of them attended a Boyz II Men concert in Napa, and they appeared to have fun. But it appears that Josh Murray has taken down an Instagram photo of their outing — and her!
Murray did the same thing when he ended his engagement with Andi. All of the pictures he had of them together were removed from his Instagram account. These days, there are no pictures of Andi on his Instagram account, even though they were engaged for five months. And it sounds like Murray may have relied on his mother through this breakup as well.
“She’s not just my mother but my best friend as well,” he captioned an Instagram pic of the two, adding, “I don’t know what I’d do without you, I love you mom!”
Of course, Josh Murray was celebrating his mother’s birthday this week, but he has relied heavily on his mother when his relationships have turned sour. When he broke up with Andi, Murray and his mother traveled to Florida for a week so he could get out of the spotlight. And with this powerful message to his mother, it sounds like Josh may have relied on his mother as well to get over Anna.
Now that he is single, Josh Murray could be thinking about finding that everlasting love. And he still has some contacts in the Bachelor world. Murray recently ran into Nick Viall while attending the iHeart Music Festival in Las Vegas on September 18. The two could easily hang out with one another, and there was no bad feelings about the past.
“It was nice to hang out without discussing the past,” Viall, 34, revealed after running into Josh, adding, “Didn’t talk about Andi or the show at all. Just enjoyed the night.”
These days, Josh isn’t dishing about love or breakups on his social media accounts. Instead, it sounds like Murray has been keeping up with politics and the latest drama surrounding the presidential elections that take place next year.
“Totally unbiased view FYI but from what I see, Republican candidates during debate = Big Leaguers VS Democratic Candidates = Minor Leaguers,” Josh wrote on Twitter this week, which started quite the discussion about how much research Josh had done on each party.
Clearly, politics is something he should not comment about on Twitter, as it started quite a few debates and arguments on his profile.
What do you think of Josh Murray being single once again? Do you think he should return to the franchise?
