The drawback of having a “Bachelorette” premiere that is only 90 minutes long instead of the usual two hours is that things end up on the cutting room floor. Case in point: Andi Dorfman’s dad paid a visit to the opening night cocktail party and it is amazing.

In these deleted scenes, watch Mr. Dorfman arrive and surprise Andi (she seems actually surprised, so maybe she didn’t know) and watch Cody about swallow his tongue. Hee.

Below, Andi’s dad chats up a few of the bachelors and is quite impressed at Marquel’s sucking up abilities. Outside, he hilariously says, “There were like five Joshes and Craigs, they were sucking up big time.” He calls the process “realisitically insane,” but he also says he supports Andi and to take her time and choose the right ones. Adorable.

Fingers crossed Andi’s dad pops up at every stop, right? “The Bachelorette” airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
