Jewish Atlanta, Ga., native Andi Dorfman will search for true love on the upcoming season of The Bachelorette, host Chris Harrison announced Monday night on the After the Final Rose special.

“I’m looking to find that great love. I have a great life. I just don’t have anyone to spend it with,” the 26-year-old told Harrison on After the Rose, according to People. “I love my job but at the end of the day my job is not my priority. I’m ready to find my husband.”

The assistant district attorney, who will be the first ever Jewish Bachelorette, left last season’s The Bachelor on her own accord after her fantasy suite date with Juan Pablo Galavis. She later called him out for being selfish and only talking about himself while on dates.

Although she wasn’t successful with Galavis on the reality series, Dorfman said she believes in the show.

“I felt real feelings … I think it can happen anywhere – especially on a show like this. I mean why not? Why not?” she said.

On The Bachelorette she will aim to chose a husband out of 25 suitors. On Tuesday she tweeted, “Am I dreaming?!? Insanely grateful, happy and most of all ready to find love!!! #cloudnine.”

  • I did her….she’s bitchy.

  • A woman with looks like that…and she can’t find a suitable suitor? Something just isn’t right here. Either she’s too picky, or so damned smart that males feel threatened every time she opens her mouth.

    If she’s too picky, then eventually, she will realize that herself. If she’s really threatening to guys, then she is clearly dating well below her I.Q. In which case, she’s dating too many guys who just can’t hack it with a great face/great body/great mind.

    As a male classical musician in search of a wife a long time ago, I can tell you: there are plenty of very fine women around in YOUR I.Q./social/religious/etc,et,circle: but they are nearly always clearly out-numberedby pretty faces and not much else. . So keep looking,but be sure you really KNOW WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR…AND DON’T THINK IT’S ALL SEX APPEAL!! (great boobs and no brains are no use at all, regardless of what you think right now!)

    My solution was: fewer dates, more communication beforehand; making your own wants and needs clear, and never, NEVER “settling” for someone who doesn’t quite fit the needs, because down the road, that ideal person will show up, and THEN, what are ya’ gonna do?? Just make sure you make sure you know what you’re looking for. I guarantee she’s out there…in numbers you probably wouldn’t believe.
    Good luck.

    I found mine. After a several YEARS courtship and 20+ years of marriage, lemme tell ya: I’m blissfully married, and at 83, I still thank G-d every day and night of my life for the woman to whom I am gratefully married!!

    First wife, died; 2nd wife 5 years married then divorced; now with 20+ years #3.
    THANK YOU, GOD!!!

    • Surprised you don’t mention the Classical Music Lovers’ Exchange (CMLE), a co-op dating service for classical music fans.

      As a married Congressional staffer (and semi-pro classical trumpeter) the thought had occasionally crossed my mind that if I were not attached, I was certainly well placed. Well, after my then-wife and I split up I found that the local marvelous women weren’t that available and the available women weren’t that marvelous. Personals ads in the Washington Post etc. didn’t pan out.

      Finding CMLE was striking gold — only in part because CMLE has more than two Fs for every M. True, some of the women in CMLE aren’t really into classical music — they just join as a way of meeting men who aren’t creeps. But still, I met literally more wonderful available women than I had ever imagined — including my wife of now 19 years.

      Recommend it without reservation.

  • ANOTHER JEW DOWN THE TUBES.

    MILI KUNUS
    NATALIE PORTMAN
    AND NOW THIS ONE.
    THIS IS TO CRY ABOUT…NOT CELEBRATE
    just maybe with her name andi, she isnt really jewish…

    THEY ARE DOING HITLERS JOB VERY WELL

    • Why she may meet someone Jewish.

      • ”MAY” IS THE REASON TO CRY.
        if she cared it would not be ‘may meet

        if she cared she would not be publically exposing such a holy intimate issue. She will be dancing infront of millions of VIEWERS like a cheap street girl.

        I like to think of us the way HASHEM wants us…
        ‘HIS’ HOLY Prince and Princesses to the world,
        not cheap jews on display for *them to critisize and view.

        I THINK OF OUR NATION MUCH HIGHER THEN THAT.
        WE ARE G-Ds REPRESENTATIVES
        NOT CIRCUS ENTERTAINMENT

        • Hey Dacon 9,
          You should get your head checked.
          People like you drive others away from organized religion. You’re no holier or righteous than anyone else.

      • The chances of that is nil

    When Torah Teaches Life and Life Teaches Torah (REVIEW)

    JNS.org – Rabbi Gordon Tucker spent the first 20 years of his career teaching at the Conservative movement’s Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) and the next 20 years as the rabbi of Temple Israel Center in White Plains, N.Y. I confess that when I heard about the order of those events, I thought that Tucker’s move from academia to the pulpit was strange. Firstly, I could not imagine anyone filling the place of my friend, Arnold Turetsky, who was such a talented [...]

    Oscars 2015: Reflecting on Love at First Sight

    JNS.org – I’m in love, and have been for a long time. It’s a relationship filled with laughter, tears, intrigue, and surprise. It was love at first sight, back when I was a little girl—with an extra-terrestrial that longed to go home. From then on, that love has never wavered, and isn’t reserved for one, but for oh so many—Ferris Bueller, Annie Hall, Tootsie, Harry and Sally, Marty McFly, Atticus Finch, Danny Zuko, Yentl, that little dog Toto, Mrs. Doubtfire, [...]

    Examining America’s First Foray into the Middle East (REVIEW)

    At the turn of the 21st century through today, American involvement in Middle Eastern politics runs through the Central Intelligence Agency. In America’s Great Game: The CIA’s Secret Arabists and the Shaping of the Modern Middle East, historian Hugh Wilford shows this has always been the case. Wilford methodically traces the lives and work of the agency’s three most prominent officers in the Middle East: Kermit “Kim” Roosevelt was the grandson of president Theodore Roosevelt, and the first head of [...]

    Anyone who spent time in the Jewish Catskills hotels – especially those like me, who returned for decades – must see the new documentary,”Welcome to Kutsher’s: The Last Catskills Resort.” Not only will the film transport you back to the glory days of your youth and thousands of memories, but it will also make you long for a world that is now lost forever. I returned to Kutsher’s one last time in the summer of 2009, but by then, the [...]

    Riding the Wave of Change in Part-Time Jewish Education

    JNS.org – Amid the numerous studies and analyses regarding Jewish American life, a simple fact remains: part-time Jewish education is the most popular vehicle for Jewish education in North America. Whenever and wherever parents choose Jewish education for their children, we have a communal responsibility to devote the necessary time and resources to deliver dynamic, effective learning experiences. The only way we can do this is by creating space for conversations and knowledge-sharing around innovative new education models. That also [...]

Even so, the profile of Bassam Eid, the Director of the Palestinian Human Rights Monitoring Group, is thankfully continuing to grow. Eid’s latest campaign is for the overhaul of UNRWA, the UN refugee agency dedicated solely to the Palestinians, which he says [...]
