After self-evicting on “The Bachelor” just before the final two were revealed, Andi Dorfman has been getting a lot of attention. She had been a favorite to win the show from early on because it looked like there was a lot of chemistry between her and Juan Pablo Galavis. According to a Feb. 27 report from TMZ, Andi Dorfman is the new “Bachelorette.” This news was leaked because Dorfman took a leave of absence during an important murder trial in Atlanta.

Fans of “The Bachelor” are excited that Andi Dorfman will get the chance to find love again. As the “Bachelorette,” she will get to meet 25 available men and weed through them as she finds true love. Because she was a fan-favorite from "The Bachelor", chances are the ratings will be high for ABC this summer. Dorfman made it clear that she was not into arrogant (what she called Juan Pablo before walking away) men. Hopefully when her potential suitors arrive they will be gentlemen.

There is no word yet on when the new season of “The Bachelorette” will begin, but many are speculating in May at some point. Andi Dorfman will make a wonderful addition to the “Bachelor” family and will hopefully find love on her journey.
