Grand Rapids, Mich. (WOTV) Andi Dorfman, a beautiful and successful woman, has it all at first glance — her loving family, her great friends, and even her dream job. But she realized there was something missing. So, last September, she put her busy life on hold to try and find love on “The Bachelor.” Though mid-season, Andi walked away from the show and Juan Pablo.

Now she’s in the driver’s seat, and is willing to put her dream job as an Atlanta assistant district attorney on hold to pursue the love of a lifetime. Andi will begin her journey and quest for love among 25 handsome bachelors, as she heads up this season’s “The Bachelorette.” The Season Premiere will air at a special time MONDAY, MAY 19 (9:30-11:00 p.m.) on WOTV 4 Women. One of the fan favorite episodes, is the first night, as bachelors meet and greet the bachelorette for the first time. Using humor, wit and charm, one by one the men step out of the limo and begin the show. Here’s what you can expect from the guys who are stepping out of the limo tonight.
A romantic young musician invites her to fasten a lock on a gate with him à la the famed “Love Lock” Bridge in Paris. A hunky personal trainer shows off his prowess by pushing his stalled limo up the driveway. A hairstylist with an off-beat sense of humor offers her an unusual gift. A world traveler gives her a pair of dolls that a little girl in the Andes Mountains gave him for his future girlfriend. But the party really gets started when one high energy bachelor uncorks a bottle of champagne in the driveway, unleashing a shower of the bubbly. Chris Harrison brings out the coveted first impression rose and the men try anything to capture that prize. However, they aren’t aware of another man who is determined to steal Andi’s heart, but is waiting outside the mansion gates. A former Bachelorette cast member is trying to crash the party. This uninvited guest has traveled all the way to Los Angeles with the hope that he will be allowed to join the group of men vying for Andi’s affections. Inside the house, the competition heats up.
A quirky clothing designer brings her a one-of-a-kind fashion look he sewed just for her, and a pro golfer offers her a putting lesson. But the party crasher awaits and Andi has her first major dilemma of the season — should he stay or should he be shown the door? And that decision also affects who will get the first impression rose. At the end of the evening 19 men will remain to try and become the love of Andi’s life. A list of bachelors will be released at a later date. (Hint: One is from right here in Grand Rapids.)
Romantic and adventurous dates will reach new heights this season, testing the men’s perseverance in pursuing their romantic objective, along with fun, exciting and exotic dates that will elicit real and raw passions. An action-packed schedule in Los Angeles and surrounding Southern California begins with an escapade that takes Andi and one bachelor from the hot sandy beaches to the snow-capped mountains all within minutes. A group of the men take the stage for charity with a popular show called “Hollywood Men,” but you won’t believe what they do for a good cause. Santa Anita Race Track is the backdrop for a private concert by “This Wild Life” for Andi and one lucky man, but will it lead to the winners’ circle and a rose?
Twelve bachelors get a dream date singing with pop superstars “Boyz II Men” in front of a live audience. Will they all stay on key? Andi and another man enter a time warp where they are aged 50 years with the help of Hollywood make-up magic. Then it is off to Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun where 11 of the men face off against a team of WNBA All Stars. An excited Bachelorette and the remaining men travel to Marseille to begin the European leg of their journey. The group journeys to Italy for the ultimate romantic Venetian experience with a surprise date complete with a gondola ride under the Bridge of Sighs. It all starts tonight on this season’s “The Bachelorette”.
*“The Bachelorette” will return to its regular time slot on Monday, May 26 (8:00-10:01 p.m.).
