Juan Pablo’s final “Bachelor” blog for People is finally out, which means that ABC viewers can finally move on … to Andi Dorfman’s upcoming season of “The Bachelorette”! Andi, a 26-year-old assistant district attorney from Atlanta landed the coveted lead on the network’s dating show. And as fans know from watching her interact with Juan Pablo, the brunette beauty is ready to find love -- and has already started her journey!
Reality Steve, the all-knowing reality TV blogger, is reporting that filming for the new season of “The Bachelorette” began Wednesday, March 12, and that Andi has already met her batch of eligible bachelors. According to Reality Steve, her first one-on-one date was filmed Friday, March 14, and her first group date was filmed Saturday, March 15.
So, how did the gang spend their first group date? By attending “The Bachelor Gives Back” event. Andi’s batch of guys were supposed to “put on a show” for fans, similar to Desiree Hartsock’s Mr. America Pageant in 2013.
But Andi and her bachelors won’t be staying in California for too long. Reality Steve is reporting that the group will begin traveling on Saturday, March 22, and that one of the countries they are visiting is Italy.
