LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Yes, Andi is engaged. And no, she's not pregnant. Josh was the last man standing on "The Bachelorette" last night, as the season concluded.

Later, during the live "After the Final Rose" reunion show, Andi denied rumors that she's pregnant. But Josh got a big laugh when he said he was trying.

"THE BACHELORETTE" FINALE-ANDI SHOOTS DOWN NICK

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- There were plenty of tears as "The Bachelorette" concluded last night. And it was Nick who was doing most of the sobbing. He was shot down by Andi before the final Rose Ceremony. Nick seemed stunned after professing his love for Andi. But she told him the "feeling was not right." Later, during the live "After the Final Rose" reunion show, Nick wanted to know why Andi made love to him if she wasn't in love.

"SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE"

NEW YORK (AP) -- Sharks rain down on New York this time, while Los Angeles is spared in "Sharknado 2: The Second One." Ian Ziering (EYE'-uhn ZEER'-ing) jokes that it's because "Los Angeles didn't rebuild in time." He can't believe how much the first Sharknado became part of popular culture. He claims public officials have even been asked if their town is safe against a Sharknado. Ziering says the word has also become synonomous with an instant hit. He says that's now called "a Sharknado moment." Sharknado 2 airs tomorrow night on SyFy.

THE "HERCULES" WORK OUT

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Dwayne Johnson says he worked out harder to play Hercules than any other role he's had. He says he worked out for a "grueling" six months before shooting and then another six months during filming. That put Rufus Sewell at a disadvantage. He says he thought he looked pretty good after "eating nothing but salmon, chicken and broccoli." Then he stood next to Johnson and he felt puny.
