Andy Baldwin: It took just under six weeks [to film the show], I took 40 days of leave to do the show. We crammed a lot into that time period. And if you ask me, or any of the women if it felt like six weeks, everyone will tell you that it felt like a year. It gets intense in terms of delving into a person's psyche and emotions and meeting families, it's a very accelerated dating and courting process. But I think that's the method in the madness of 'The Bachelor.' When you press people and put them in a stressful environment, their true colors come out.
Andy Baldwin: It was very hard on me and the women, and I don't know if it was the altitude or if they were all in the suite together, it just all of a sudden became very real that they just couldn't be friends, you put people in an uncomfortable situation, and all kinds of things come out, and that's when it really hit the fan.
Andy Baldwin: Earlier this year I was offered a once in a lifetime opportunity- a chance to go into the heart of Southeast Asia as a medical humanitarian and treat the sick and injured. I was asked to serve as group surgeon for a team of fifty military personnel headed for a one-month recovery mission in Laos attempting to find the remains of U.S. POW/MIAs from the Vietnam War. The Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC) is a powerfully funded Army-led organization that deploys numerous recovery missions to remote locations of the world each year. My role would be to take care of the medical needs of my team, and also to visit the remote villages where my teammates were working to treat Lao villagers in need of medical attention. What I would see and experience- disease and poverty coupled with courage and the will to survive- would change my life forever.
Andy Baldwin: I may be old-fashioned, but I believe in true love, and I know she's out there. And I know I'm going to find her.
Andy Baldwin: Every day I spend here the more and more I love it. It's really hard being away from my family, especially in hard times when my family is struggling financially and my grandma's been sick with Alzheimer's. But the more and more I make this my home, the more and more I want to say it is that sense of family (that I love about Hawaii). I think it would be a wonderful place to raise a family and have kids.
Andy Baldwin: I'm looking forward to the end of the show so I can reunite with the woman I'm in love with, that's what I'm looking most forward to.
Andy Baldwin: I had no idea how difficult a journey and a mission this was going to be, and I've done a lot of things getting to be a doctor, and I've done the Ironman six times, [having to send women home during rose ceremonies] really crushed me.
Andy Baldwin: I'm so glad I did [the show] because I am so in love. It worked. I'm smitten...I can't get her out of my mind.
Andy Baldwin: Love to me is that feeling that you get where you can't get enough of that other person. They become part of you and you become part of them.
Andy Baldwin: I have so much to give. I have a huge heart and I really want to find the love of my life, to get married, to have children.
