Spilling tea? Former Bachelorette star Andi Dorfman thinks the chances are slim for her becoming season 16’s leading lady. “They wouldn’t ask me,” she confessed during an Instagram Q&A on February 27. “I’m pretty sure they’ve never asked me to do anything ever since I returned my ring, except our big reunion last year.”
Andi got engaged to Josh Murray during the season 10 finale, but they split seven months later. The former baseball player, 35, went on to appear on season 3 of Bachelor in Paradise, where he got engaged to Amanda Stanton. The two broke up a few months later. Andi has not appeared on any Bachelor spinoffs, but she did write a best-selling book about the experience called It’s Not Okay.
The 32-year-old added that she’s “either too boring or too single or on the s–t list” to appear in the franchise again. From traveling to running a marathon and everything in-between, we would hardly call Andi dull. As far as where she stands with production, she definitely has one powerful ally. The brunette beauty and show host Chris Harrison are so close that rumors swirled about the two being romantically involved. The former lawyer later revealed to Bustle in 2016 that they are just “really, really good friends.”
Andi exclusively told Life & Style that she thought being the Bachelorette was a “one-time thing,” but Bachelor Nation has been keeping their fingers crossed for a throwback cast member to reappear. Bachelor in Paradise alum Ashley Iaconetti exclusively dished to Life & Style that the Georgia native is one of her top picks. “She is going to turn 33 in the spring, and I think it would be nice to see a girl of that age,” the brunette beauty, 31, explained. “Andi killed it as [the] Bachelorette the first time, so why not do it twice with her?”
The contestant from Chris Soules‘ season acknowledged that “people are craving an older cast” in a separate exclusive interview with LS, but that’s not the only reason Andi would be a great choice. “She’s witty, whip-smart, stunning and won’t put up with crap,” the podcast host added.
We’d have to agree!
