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

    New Play Explores the ‘Arrogance’ of American Jews Critical of Israel, Playwright Says

    In his new play Mr. Goldberg Goes to Tel Aviv, playwright Oren Safdie tackles an issue that he has a major concern with: the relationship between Israelis and left-leaning Diaspora Jews with their “I know better” critical views. At the heart of the one-act play is Tony, a Jewish and gay Palestinian sympathizer who expresses strong anti-Israel sentiments when the play begins and at one point even sides with a Palestinian terrorist who holds his captive. Tony, who is also an [...]

    On 75th Anniversary, Looking at the Jewish Influence on Gone With the Wind

    JNS.org – The 75th anniversary of the premiere of “Gone with the Wind” on Dec. 15 presents an opportunity to examine the Jewish influence on one of the most popular films of all time. That influence starts with the American Civil War epic’s famed producer, David O. Selznick. Adjusted for inflation, “Gone with the Wind” remains the highest-grossing movie ever made. It earned the 1939 Academy Award for Best Picture, the same honor another Selznick film, “Rebecca,” garnered in 1940. Selznick [...]

    ‘Sheriff of Mars’ Unveils Endearing Life of Jewish Music Star Hidden in the Fields of France

    JNS.org – It was an era of steel strings, guitar heroes, and storytellers—high on heroin, rebellious. Outlaw country music, the hallmark of Nashville’s powerful and angry music scene of the 1970s, was the brew of greats such as Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and Townes Van Zandt. But there is another, little-known music hero of that era: Daniel Antopolsky. A Jewish lad from Augusta, Ga.—the son of immigrants who settled in the south and ran a hardware store on Main Street—the [...]

    JNS.org – There is one sentence in “Ben-Gurion: Father of Modern Israel” that made me sit up in surprise.

On the 12th of May, the Zionist Executive met to decide what to do. Moshe Sharrett had just returned [...]
