I was able to find a solution by adding some customization on the advance approvals main workflow. For those interested, below is the overview:

  1. Create Global Workflow Fields to store current and previous approvers
  2. Set the current and previous approvers fields on the state that generates the next approver.  Make sure to sequence setting the “previous approver” before the actions that generates the next approver and setting the “current approver” should be after the generation
  3. Added a new transition from the approver to creating new approver state if the current and previous approver is the same. This bypass and mimics the clicking of “Approve” button on the UI
