Chris Bukowski, who attempted to crash Andi Dorfman's opening cocktail party on The Bachelorette season premiere, is taking rejection in stride at least.
He tweeted in jest Monday, "I should have went through the back entrance," while adding in a direct tweet to Dorfman, "You looked amazing, by the way."
Chris also shared a picture of himself on Facebook Monday, holding a bouquet of red roses and giving his camera phone a smoldering, mischievous gaze.
"Pre-break-in!" he wrote. "Safety first! #seatbelt #bachelorette."
As The Bachelorette spoilers predicted, Chris became smitten with Dorfman during Juan Pablo's season of The Bachelor and wanted a shot at dating her.
"She seemed like a girl I could hit it off with," Bukowski, 27, told Ryan Seacrest of the reasons behind his theatrics. "She's beautiful and career-driven."
"I almost got on as a contestant, but it was too late," he added of his efforts to get on the show a second time. Undeterred, he reached out to the producers.
"So I flew to L.A., and there was no turning back," he told Seacrest.
As revealed on The Bachelorette premiere, Chris Bukowski camped outside The Bachelor mansion for a week, hoping to join the foray of men vying for Dorfman.
"We have a party crasher," show host Chris Harrison told the woman of the hour on last night's episode. "He's been on the show before. It's Chris Bukowski."
Indeed it was. But he never even got his foot in the door ... literally.
Dorfman nixed the stunt, concluding it wasn't fair to her 25 other suitors. Dejected, Bukowski lamented to Harrison, "I can't give up like this … I'm not leaving."
Ultimately, he was asked to leave and security escorted him away.
The Chicago native captured fans' attention on Emily Maynard's Bachelorette season in 2012, then became the biggest womanizer and liar on Bachelor Pad.
He will now return to his life doing ... whatever it is Chris does.
Meanwhile, in the aftermath of his botched party crashing, 19 of the original 25 men will continue vie for Andi's love and affection next Monday night:
