Andi Dorfman is ready to find her man! The 26-year-old Atlanta, Ga. resident has officially been named the new Bachelorette for season 10. During the After the Final Rose special on Monday, March 10, Dorfman chatted with host Chris Harrison about why she's ready to find love on the ABC reality show.

"Are you prepared to come here, find love, and make that happen?" Harrison asked. "And that's not a guarantee, but you have to enter into it with that feeling." 

"I am. Absolutely," Dorfman said. "I feel all in. I feel mentally all in, emotionally all in, physically all in. I am in the place in my life where I am just so ready for this. I hate to say it because I don't want to jinx myself, and be like, 'I'm so all in and if this doesn't happen it's the end of the world.' But I am ready. I have never felt better in my life about this, and I'm just excited."

Dorfman is an Assistant District Attorney and will go on professional hiatus in order to tape the show.

"[It's] very hard for me. I worked really hard to get to where I am, and it's something that I'm very proud of. But at the end of the day . . . If I don't have someone to share that with . . . it doesn't mean anything to me."

Though Dorfman walked away from Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis during Season 18, she believes she can find love on the Bachelorette.

"I think it can happen anywhere, especially on a show like this. I mean, why not?" she asked. "At the end of the day, I can't wait to hopefully say, 'You are the one. This is a wrap.' I can't wait for that moment."

Her only hesitation? How she'll manage to narrow down her list of handsome men to only one.

"I'm definitely worried about sending someone home," Dorman said. "I think the hardest part for me is going to be sending home great, nice guys. When someone is genuinely nice and supportive and has put their life on hold, to have to look someone in the face and have to send them home, I think, is going to be terrible for me."
