1. “It was odd not to be there.” Why Osher Günsberg wasn’t at The Bachelorette finale.
After four very dramatic weeks, anticipation is well and truly building for The Bachelorette finale, where we’ll see Angie Kent finally pick her winner.
But this year’s finale will be quite different from all other Bachie finales, as sadly, Osher Günsberg will not be there.
It’s incredibly devastating news and yes, Osher and his whispers will very much be missed.
But he does have a very good reason for not being there.
Osher told The Daily Telegraph that he missed filming because his wife, Audrey Griffen went into labour with his son, Wolfgang.
“In the last week of filming, Audrey had contractions seven minutes apart, so it was going to happen at any moment,” he told the publication.
“It was odd not to be there. It is the moment they go off into the wild and I really like to give them a hug and tell them I am happy for them. But I am sure I will catch up with everyone once the outcome is out there.”

Please meet Georgia’s youngest brother, Wolfgang. We call him Wolfie for short. He and @Audreygriffen did so well on Friday when he was born perfectly formed with ten fingers and toes, healthy and happy at 3.97kg. (Though between the delivery bed and the scale he did do a massive poop – and the doc agreed that if he hadn’t he would have topped 4kg easily.) I am in complete awe of my wife. What I witnessed her do, the power I saw her summon from within her to bring this boy into the world was utterly astonishing. As he came closer and closer, her body began to unleash an incredible energy that was absolutely not going to be held back. Yet Audrey was able to harness it, guide it, and use it to transcend the extraordinary pain she was feeling and channel it all towards an energy that brought this boy alive and well into the world. That I’ve known Audrey for over five years, and yet had no idea that within her this whole time was an almighty divine force capable of bringing life into the world like this blows my mind and was astonishing to witness. I can’t think of any single thing a man does in his life that physically equates to what I saw Audrey do. For me – any marathon or endurance event I’ve ever raced is essentially a wander to the kitchen compared to what I saw Audrey do on Friday. Wolfie’s big sister Georgia was in the room with us via the most perfect playlist that she made especially for the occasion – and this boy came into the world to the sounds of Kendrick Lamar, Beyonce and Khalid. Less than an hour after he was born, Wolfie met G for real – and she’s the best big sister he could have ever hoped for. We are in love and drowning in gratitude, oxytocin and new baby smell.
But not to worry, Osher says the producers still managed to make the final episode work.
“Everyone banded together and figured out a way to make the show work without me being there for the final moments,” said Osher.
