How excited are people for Andi Dorfman's season of The Bachelorette? They tried to crash the opening night's cocktail party!

Andi, the 26-year-old lawyer from Atlanta, officially makes her debut as TV's new leading lady after winning viewers' hearts during Juan Pablo Galavis' season of The Bachelor, when the ABC hit kicks off its 10th season tonight at 9:30 p.m. And yes, men across America were so excited for a chance to woo the brunette beauty that one guy actually crashed filming when he wasn't picked for the Top 25!

"You were probably about as shocked as I was," Andi told E! News during a satellite interview. "You never know what to expect and I knew that coming into it, but no matter how many times I told myself, 'Expect anything,' you still can't expect things like a party crasher on the first night!"

But does she let the party crasher stay? Press play on the video above to find out!

Party crasher aside, Andi admitted that the experience of being the Bachelorette was "definitely harder" than she anticipated it would be.

"The amount of time and energy that goes into it is just through the roof. I think that's something that viewers don't know," she said. "You have dates every day and you've got to be really present. And you want to be present for each and every date, so definitely harder. It's hard to manage 25 guys, I'm not going to lie. It sounds easy, but wrangling 25 guys together is a little difficult!"

Still, Andi is definitely  "happy" with the outcome of the show, even if she can't tell us if she's engaged, dating or single. "I'm happy, it was an amazing experience," she gushed. "I met incredible guys, obviously went on unbelievable dates to these unbelievable countries, so the experience made me really happy!"

But don't expect to see Andi pull a Sean Lowe and Catherine Guidici and get married on TV if she does end the season with a ring on her finger, telling us, "I don't know. I cringe just watching myself on TV! It would be tough to watch myself in a wedding dress on TV!"
