In a tweet back from 2014, Andrew, 26, wrote with a smirk: “Let me be the next Bachelor.”
The social media post raised a lot of eyebrows with fans – as a big theme for Katie, 30, this season has been men there for “the right reasons.”
In fact, right before she sent Thomas home, Katie even confidently assured him that she “knows for a fact” the men she had left were there for her – not to be The Bachelor.
Andrew did not respond to The Sun’s request for comment.
Many fans slammed Andrew for his controversial tweet – and poked fun at Katie for her now-ironic comment.
A resurfaced tweet showed Andrew admitting he wants to be the next Bachelor
“LMAO Katie said “I know for a fact there are men there who wouldn’t be the Bachelor” and Andrew flat out here for fame and to be the next Bachelor,” one person wrote.
An angry fan said: “I do not want this man as Bachelor. Period.”
“Another guy on a reality show for the wrong reasons… shocking,” someone quipped.
While a fourth said sarcastically: “Andrew here for the wrong reasons out of all those guys is not what I saw coming!”
The professional athlete has also received backlash for past misogynistic tweets where he referred to women as “fat hoes” among other problematic language.
In one tweet to his friend from 2013, he said: “And Direll, stop talking to fat hoes.”
Back in 2016, the fan-favorite said: “All blondes have little lips.”
In a tweet written towards Kendall Jenner in 2014, the footballer referenced Kim Kardashian’s NFL star ex, Reggie Bush.
‘DISAPPOINTING & IGNORANT!’
“You’re just jealous I’m going to be the next Reggie Bush in that family,” the athlete said.
He also made a series of controversial tweets about “Black women” specifically, including laughing at someone for “marrying a Black girl.”
Fans were outraged by the insensitive messages, with one slamming him: “Noooooo! I just said he was my favorite guy from the past few seasons. This is why I have trust issues.”
Another said: “Ugh. This is really disappointing. Really like him on the show. I don’t get why these people don’t clean up their social media before they get on these shows.
“I can maybe get over someone being young, dumb and ignorant in the past. But you grew up and looked at that stuff in the light of day now and didn’t see a problem?”
In a tweet from 2009, the finalist said: “Who’s fault is that? Poor f** can’t handle a little kitchen knife at work.
“No Type of coordination at all…how sad.”
