'The Bachelor' Andrew Firestone spotted in Wisconsin airport -- visiting Tina?
By Wade Paulsen, 04/29/2003
Could this be a spoiler about the outcome of ABC's The Bachelor, or is it merely a coincidence? The Wausau Daily Herald reports that Andrew Firestone, whose quest for the perfect mate is being profiled on the show, was spotted at the Milwaukee, Wisconsin airport last week.
The women who spotted him (one of whom was the daughter of the columnist reporting the story) were convinced that the only reason for Andrew's flight to Milwaukee was to visit Tina Panas (a.k.a. Tina Fabulous) of Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, who is (at this time on the show) one of the four remaining candidates to accompany Andrew on a media blitz that is unlikely to be followed by a wedding.
And then ... the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that Andrew and Tina were in the Twin Cities at the same time a couple of days later, although supposedly not together. Tina's visit could make sense independently, since she is a Golden Gopher graduate, but believing in two coincidences in three days seems like quite a stretch.
Regarless of the facts, speculating about an Andrew-Tina result is interesting ... almost as interesting as speculating whether former 'Bachelorette' Trista Rehn will ever marry her supposed fairy-tale beau, Ryan Sutter.
