'My Season Is More Romantic Than Sexy and Scandalous'
Andi Dorfman, former contestant on the ABC series "The Bachelor", knows how to voice her opinion.
After last season's exit from the show prior to telling Juan Pablo Galavis he was self-centered as a person -- earning her enough points from fans to make a return on this year's "Bachelorette."
Obviously America saw a lot of the tough girl and that's what came out at the very end," Andi tells TVGuide.com. "But I am a very soft person inside, I'm vulnerable and I'm somebody who is looking for love. I'm not just the tough chick from Atlanta who's an attorney. I'm a girl who wants to be courted and have the love of her life."
Dofrman didn't go into to much detail about certain aspects of the show -- what types of interests she keeps in her suitors -- or who makes each cut, she did say it won't be as sexy or scandalous as previous seasons of the show were prior to her arrival.
Looking at the upcoming season, Andi — who might be the first woman to wear a one-piece bathing suit on the show — says it won't rank high on the sexy and scandalous scale.
"Mine will probably be on the more romantic side," she says. "You will not see a lot of hot-tub scenes; it's not really my thing. But I feel like you can be sexy by being romantic and it doesn't need to involve bikinis and hot tubs."
The 10th Season of "The Bachelorette" starts on Monday -- with Dorfman being introduced to 25 men who will vie for her attention over the course of the show. She wasn't entirely sure that she was even going to be able to find a match prior to meeting all of the choices that the producers had lined up for her -- afterwards she felt a bit more confident that the man she was looking for could be found.
"My biggest fear, honestly, was not finding anybody," Andi says. "Going into the first night I was thinking, 'I don't know if I can do this! I don't know if I can find anybody through this.''
As viewers already know, one suitor, Eric Hill, tragically died in a paragliding accident after he completed filming. About Eric, Andi recently said, "We lost a family member and it's been hard, [but] we are holding on to the legacy of Eric. He really did live life to the fullest and that's something that every single person, cast, crew, production, you know, myself included will take away from Eric and his experience with them."
