The Bachelorette is one of reality television’s hottest shows. A spinoff of the original show The Bachelor, The Bachelorette debuted on TV in 2003. With a simple premise, that of a young woman looking for love amongst a group of eligible men, the show became a quick fan favorite.
Over the years, many types of contestants have been featured on the show, from medical students and businesswomen to social media stars. In the 10th season of The Bachelorette, a young woman named Andi Dorfman made headlines when she brought serious drama to the set of the hit series. These days, Dorfman is still causing a stir, this teasing fans with her new boyfriend.
When was Andi Dorfman on ‘The Bachelorette’?
Dorfman was a contestant on Season 18 of The Bachelor. Dorfman, a former attorney, made headlines when she very publicly walked out on Juan Pablo Galavis in the 9th episode of that season. Fans couldn’t get enough of Dorfman and the media pursued her relentlessly to open up about what had happened behind the scenes to cause herself to withdraw from the competition.
As reported by ET, however, Dorfman has refused to go into detail: “Oh my gosh. I mean, I’ll never tell exactly what happened. I think that should be something… now, I guess everyone talks about it. But back then, we actually used to keep what was in the fantasy suite there.”
Interest was piqued in Dorfman, and she went on to star in the tenth season of The Bachelorette. The season, which premiered in early May 2014, was very popular with fans. At the end of the season, Dorfman chose Josh Murray, and the two got engaged in May of that year. However, by January 2015, Dorfman and Murray called off their engagement.
What do fans know about Andi Dorfman’s new boyfriend?
Although Dorfman chose Josh Murray in the end, she had a brief fling with Nick Viall. In February 2017, Dorfman made a surprise appearance on Viall’s season of The Bachelor, sparking romance rumors.
These days, however, Dorfman seems to be in a new relationship with an exciting mystery man. In early November, Dorfman took to Instagram to share a series of photos featuring a man wearing an Atlanta Braves hat. Fans couldn’t see the man’s face, so his identity is still a secret for now.
“Forever an ATL gal,” Dorfman wrote in the caption, along with a heart emoji. According to Us Weekly, a source recently claimed that Dorfman and her mystery man have “been together a few months. He’s not from the show or in the entertainment business at all so she’s making sure to protect him as much as possible but she’s super happy and finally feels she is in love…He really is the nicest guy and they are perfect for each other.”
What has Andi Dorfman been doing since her season of ‘The Bachelorette’?
While Dorfman is best known for her work in reality television, for the past several years, she has pursued a new career as a fitness influencer, launching an exercise app and partnering with brands like Fabletics. She is also an author, having published a book titled “It’s Not Okay,” a book that detailed her relationship and breakup with Josh Murray. Dorfman has accrued a large following on social media, with over one million followers.
As the months progress, it seems likely that Dorfman will share more about her new relationship, and possibly might even introduce her new boyfriend to her devoted fans and followers.
