'Bachelor' couple make first appearance since engagement called off
By Christopher Rocchio, 08/28/2007
Their engagement may be broken off, but the love is apparently still there for Andy Baldwin and Tessa Horst.
The Bachelor: Officer and a Gentlemancouple made their first public appearance together since announcing their wedding plans were caput two weeks ago, as the 26-year-old San Francisco social worker cheered on the 30-year-old U.S. Navy Lieutenant and undersea medical officer as he competed in Sunday's inaugural Ford Ironman Louisville Triathlon, The Honolulu Advertiserreported Monday.
"It was amazing," Baldwin wrote in an e-mail to The Advertiser. "Tessa ran down the chute with me and I picked her up and carried her across the finish line and gave her a kiss. My parents were there, and my little sister. They've never seen me do an Ironman before. It was a very special moment."
Knowing Horst was waiting at the finish line must have boosted Baldwin's adrenaline, as The Advertiser reported he completed the 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike and 26.2 mile run fast enough to finish 43rd overall.
