Andi Dorfman (born April 3, 1987)[1] is an American television personality, author, and former Assistant District Attorney from Fulton County, Georgia. She was a contestant on the eighteenth season of The Bachelor, and the lead on tenth season of The Bachelorette. She became famous for walking out on bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis in the ninth episode of The Bachelor. She became the first former attorney to appear as The Bachelorette.

Personal life[edit]

Dorfman was born in Atlanta, Georgia,[1] the younger of two sisters.[2] She graduated from Louisiana State University in 2009, then earned her J.D. from Wake Forest University School of Law in 2012. She had been an Assistant District Attorney for Fulton County, Georgia.[2]

The Bachelor and The Bachelorette[edit]

During Juan Pablo Galavis' season of The Bachelor (season 18), Dorfman made it to the eighth episode before pulling herself from the competition.

Dorfman then starred in The Bachelorette season 10, which premiered on May 19, 2014. She took leave from her job as an assistant district attorney to be on the show. She later resigned from her position rather than ask for additional leave.[3] Her choice as the winner was Josh Murray, to whom she became engaged in May; on January 8, 2015, Murray and Dorfman announced their decision to end their engagement.

On February 20, 2017, she made a surprise appearance on Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor; Viall had been Murray's runner-up during Dorfman's Bachelorette season and had sharply questioned her choice of Murray during the season finale.[4]
