ABC 'The Bachelorette' 2014: Host Chris Harrison Says Next Andi Dorfman Season Is Like Trista's
According to host Chris Harrison, the upcoming season of "The Bachelorette" is, of course, filled with drama. Unlike the last season of "The Bachelor," it's not the star who's bringing the theatrics this time around.
According to Harrison, the next round of the ABC reality dating show might remind fans of a previous season.
"This season reminded me a little of the guys from Trista's season," Harrison said in an interview with ABC News. "It was a really close-knit group ... and that's a good thing, but it's also a bad thing because it's not a fraternity.
As we learned from Bachelorette Andi Dorfman's run on Juan Pablo Galavis' season of "The Bachelor," she demands respect.
"[She] wants the guys to be there for her," Harrison continued. "That always gives you some issues along the way. These seasons never go smoothly and there are always going to be bumps in the road."
Still, Harrison says that working on the new season has been "a breath of fresh air" as he watches Dorfman "handle her business." He describes the assistant district attorney from Atlanta as "vulnerable, sweet, and a woman who wants to find love."
"Because of her background, she's very analytical, and she's methodical about approaching things almost like a case," he said. "She's a great investigator."
According to Harrison, Dorfman has actually taken the time to know her suitors intimately, a category in which she thought Galavis needed improvement.
"She knows more about these guys in a very short time than any of our bachelorettes have known in an entire season," Harrison gushed. "You can ask her about the final 10 guys and she could name every brother, parent. It's astounding!"
Earlier, a source who E! News says "works on the show," claimed that "The Bachelorette" producers also have nothing but nice things to say about "awesome" Dorfman.
"The guys love her as do the producers," the anonymous source said. "... It's going well, which is not to say there's not some bumps, but overall it is looking like a really good season."
"The Bachelorette" premieres on ABC May 19 at 9:30/8:30c.
