Sounds like Andi Dorfman is no Juan Pablo Galavis. As in not every dude will be scrambling to leave The Bachelorette of their own volition or hate her at the end.

After her infamous breakup on The Bachelor, Andi is ready to put the past behind her and find love as the woman handing out the roses this summer on ABC.

She's already making quite the impression on potential suitors, too ...

The hot Assistant District Attorney from Atlanta, who dumped Juan Pablo HARD on The Bachelor, is a fan favorite among the guys and staff member alike.

"Andi is awesome," a source who works on the show says. "The guys love her as do the producers. Such a breath of fresh air after the Juan Pablo debacle!"

"She is taking it extremely seriously. It's going well, which isn't to say there aren't some bumps. But overall it is looking like a really good season."

Andi Dorfman proved she was ready to find love after she was named the next Bachelorette on the After the Final Rose special, telling host Chris Harrison:

The first poster for the new season of The Bachelorette has been released, featuring Andi Dorfman and taking a little shot at Juan Pablo Galavis.

"She's looking for the right one," the tease for the ABC reality hit reads, but the "one" is written in red ... after the word "Juan" has been crossed out.

BAM!

Andi Dorfman Bachelorette Poster

Given the way Andi Dorfman peaced out of The Bachelor - dissing and dismissing Juan Pablo HARD on the penultimate episode - the diss is pretty perfect.

The Bachelor star, who later picked (and is somehow still with) Nikki Ferrell, turned off many fans with the aloof, inconsiderate ways Andi called him out on.

Andi described the Fantasy Suite as anything but, calling it "a nightmare" and chastising Galavis for his "inappropriate" and "offensive" comments.

Perhaps most notably, she told him there's a difference between being honest and "being an asshole" (Clare Crawley certainly won't argue with her).

Former star of The Bachelorette Ashley Hebert is pregnant and expecting her first child with her husband and 2011 final rose recipient, J.P. Rosenbaum.

The self-described "cool dentist," Hebert first won hearts as a contestant on Brad Womack's season of The Bachelor (the second), only to finish in third place.

Ashley Hebert, 29, later went on to star on The Bachelorette, where she first met J.P. Rosenbaum, 36. He proposed in Fiji on the finale, and they wed in 2012.

Their wedding was aired on ABC, just like Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici nuptials earlier this year. The couple now lives together in New Jersey.

"Whenever we're around each other, it's just easy and comfortable and fun," Rosenbaum famously said on the show. "It's a chemistry you can't ignore."

"It's just there."

The Bachelor is introducing a new spinoff this summer, entitled Bachelor in Paradise ... seriously. ABC will air a six-episode season after The Bachelorette finale.

The show will be similar in format to ABC's Bachelor Pad, which was canceled last year, only Bachelor in Paradise will be filmed in a tropical destination.

The network confirmed the spinoff to EW in a statement:

"The romantic dating series will feature new twists, shocking surprises, unexpected guests and some of the most unlikely relationships in Bachelor history."

"Plus the usual romance, drama and tears we've come to expect from The Bachelor franchise. It all comes together in the romantic TV event of the summer."

Bachelor in Paradise stars will be based in a remote "romantic paradise," where they will compete to find their true loves, or at least a hot hookup.

Filming is underway for the new season of The Bachelorette, starring Andi Dorfman, and the men are going to have to go all out to win her heart.

If they want to make love to her at some point ... they're gonna have to SING "I'll Make Love to You" by Boyz II Men, WITH the classic R&B group!

Oh, The Bachelorette spoilers alert. Sorry.

Andi Dorfman and her suitors were out in Santa Barbara yesterday for their third group date of the young season, which just began filming in California.

They arrived at an outdoor Boyz II Men show, and took over the stage in a moment that wasn't staged at all for the reality show. Okay, yes it was.

(The Bachelorette spoiler alert again ... we gotta work on that!)

Two groups battled it out in a sing-off, wearing khaki blazers and blue cardigans, respectively, crooning "I'll Make Love to You" in hopes that maybe, one day ...

Andi Dorfman didn't take crap from Juan Pablo Galavis on The Bachelor (the same can't be said for Nikki Ferrell, according to the winner's ex).

Whatever you think of Nikki, Andi infamously dropped Juan Pablo like a bad habit and will soon take her no-nonsense approach to The Bachelorette.

ABC released the first photo of her in the starring role today:

Andi Dorfman as The Bachelorette

"I am incredibly excited to be The Bachelorette ... never did I think this would happen to me!" Dorfman, a 26-year-old Assistant D.A. from Atlanta, said.

"I am looking forward to traveling the world and going on amazing dates with amazing men. And hopefully, one of them ends up being the love of my life."

Already a fan favorite for being funny, successful, strong and stunningly beautiful, Andi Dorfman took it to a new level on the penultimate Bachelor episode.

When former Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock walks down the aisle this summer, she will do so in a custom wedding dress that she personally designed!

Desiree's keeping her wedding date under wraps, but did admit to Us that she's currently co-designing not one but two dresses with label Maggie Sottero.

A "timeless, yet surprising" silhouette for the vows and a "1920s-inspired" reception frock will mark the day in which she marries Chris Siegfried ...

  • Chris Siegfried and Desiree Hartsock Instagram

"I can't wait for Chris to see me in all the dresses!" the bridal stylist, who moved from her native Colorado to Seattle to be with Siegfried, says of her man.

The Bachelorette beauty, who creates gowns for her clients from her home, didn't start designing her own masterpiece until much later, she says.

"It feels like it was 10 years ago!" she says of her run on The Bachelorette, which followed Sean Lowe rejecting her in favor of now-wife Catherine Giudici.

At least Bachelor Nation has one happy ending to celebrate this month. The Bachelor star Elizabeth Kitt and Bachelorette star Ty Brown are married!

The couple tied the knot Saturday, March 15 in a beautiful, rustic ceremony in Kingston Spring, Tenn. Check out the photo of the newlyweds here:

Elizabeth Kitt and Ty Brown

Take that, Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell ... or something!

"The ceremony took place yesterday in our barn on our wooded property," the duo told Us. "We had just immediate family in attendance. We wrote our own vows."

"The ceremony was very intimate and personal."

Elizabeth Kitt, for the uninitiated, appeared on Jake Pavelka's season of The Bachelor and went on to be featured in the first season of Bachelor Pad.

Sorry, Juan Pablo, you missed out on this catch. Andi Dorfman will be looking for love as the new star of The Bachelorette, beginning Monday, May 19 on ABC!

The Atlanta-based assistant district attorney, who made a dramatic exit from The Bachelor this season, was confirmed as the franchise's newest star last night.

WARNING: The remainder of this post contains The Bachelor spoilers ...

Juan Pablo Galavis chose Nikki Ferrell on The Bachelor finale, but didn't propose or even say I love you, then acted like a dick on the After the Final Rose special.

This after leaving runner-up Clare Crawley so offended with his alleged sexual comments in St. Lucia that she couldn't even bear to look at him at the reunion.

Suffice it to say, Andi Dorfman's introduction was a welcome reprieve.

The brunette beauty looked overwhelmed when Chris Harrison brought her out on the ATFR special, and not just because of her eye-popping silver dress.
