|Why Andi Dorfman Would Be the Perfect 'Bachelorette'|

On Tuesday's episode of "The Bachelor," Andi Dorfman removed herself from the competition.
"Waking up this morning I could not wait to get out of the fantasy suite. The fantasy suite turned into a nightmare," she said on the show. "I saw a side to [Juan Pablo] that I didn't really like. The whole night was a disaster."
Though a future with Juan Pablo seems, well, highly unlikely, we might be seeing more of Andi soon: She's reportedly being eyed to star in the next season of "The Bachelorette." (A rep for the ABC reality series had no comment.)
Here's why she'd be perfect for the job.
In the past, most women wait with bated breath to receive a rose from the "Bachelor" star, and few have ever stood up to him the way Andi did. After confronting Juan Pablo for not asking her questions about herself, she grew agitated when he simply told her it was "OK." "It's not OK," she said. I left behind family and friends, a job. I missed a wedding and things. I did that all willingly. I put myself out there, it's not OK. ... You saying it's OK comes off as you not having feelings." This type of attitude could bring a whole new dimension to the show.
While finding love is the primary goal of all the participants on "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette," it's by no means the only focus in Andi's life. As an assistant district attorney in Atlanta, Andi once told Modern Luxury that her goal was "to make the community I live in a better and safer place."
While being the Bachelorette would require Andi to make nice with 25 men, it's heartening to see so many women from her season of "The Bachelor" warm up to her too. Since the show, she has tweeted selfies of herself hanging with fellow "Bachelor" contestants Sharleen Joynt, Nikki Ferrell and Kelly Travis.
In the Modern Luxury piece, Andi was asked to describe herself in three words. She chose "feisty," "loyal," and "considerate." While the latter two make for a good friend, the first word promises excellent TV.
Andi not only knows how reality TV works by now, but she also recognizes that she's not going to necessarily fall in love just because she's seemingly supposed to. A woman who's comfortable being herself on TV and isn't going to force a connection with someone just because she feels pressure to? Sounds like ideal reality TV star to me.
