Driving up the windy road in Malibu to where I would be starting a new chapter as The Bachelorette, I had no idea what to expect. When Chris Harrison showed me my new home, I was awed by the enchanting view of the ocean. I find solace and peace at the beach, so having such an amazing view of it made me feel right at home and ready to begin this journey.

"Oh my gosh, are you adorable," Hartsock says in an exclusive clip of Monday's Bachelorette premiere (8 p.m. ET). "You are so cute." (Watch below.)

"I like someone who's spontaneous and adventurous and enjoys every aspect of life. And not to get too serious, but someone who could be my best friend and be a support system, someone who I can see as the father of my kids," the 26-year-old tells PEOPLE.

Her inspiration is very close to home. "My parents have been together 40 years and married for 35," she says. "My dad has her back no matter what, and she's so affectionate to him. They act like they are 16."
