After a rocky romance with Juan Pablo Galavis on The Bachelor, Andi Dorfman will be looking for love again as the new star of The Bachelorette.

The Atlanta-based assistant district attorney, who made a dramatic exit from The Bachelor after a disastrous fantasy suite date, seemed overwhelmed when Chris Harrison brought her out and introduced her on the After the Final Rose special, which aired Monday night following the shocking Bachelor finale.

"I'm looking to find that great love. I have a great life. I just don't have anyone to spend it with," the tough-as-nails prosecutor said. "I love my job but at the end of the day my job is not my priority. I'm ready to find my husband."

After a tough time with Juan Pablo, who refused to say he was in love, Chris seemed like he wanted to make sure that Andi was ready to go through the same process on her upcoming season.

"I feel all in. I feel mentally all in, emotionally all in, physically all in. I am in a place in my life where I'm just so ready for this. I hate to say it because I don't want to jinx myself ... but I am ready. I've never felt better in my life about this and I'm just excited."

And although she didn't find love with Juan Pablo, Andi said she believes in the show. "I felt real feelings ... I think it can happen anywhere – especially on a show like this. I mean why not? Why not?"
