Andi Dorfman


Things are already heating up for Andi Dorfman on the set of the Bachelorette.

Days after the former Bachelor contestant was announced as the new Bachelorette, the Atlanta-based assistant district attorney was spotted on her first beach date with a contestant on the ABC show in Ventura, Calif., a source tells E! News.

During the duo's nearly two-and-a-half hour outing, only members of the production crew were present as Dorman and her possible new beau shared a picnic on the beach, looked out at the ocean, and later participated in some beach activities like beach paddle and kite flying; They also took a helicopter ride.

"Andi seemed excited and relaxed for the date, however, her date seemed very nervous," the source said. "He started to get more relaxed once they were settled."

Once they were, the contestant was seen flipping his date in the air and resting his hand on her butt, among other things. Dorfman wore a white bikini for the occasion, while her companion rocked colorful shorts.

The 26-year-old brunette beauty was officially announced as the next star of The Bachelorette Monday, following The Bachelor's After the Rose ceremony.  "I'm looking to find that great love," Dorfman said, following the announcement. "I have a great life. I just don't have anyone to spend it with."

The new season of The Bachelorette premieres Monday, May 19.
