So every season of The Bachelor fans scramble to find out how much the contestants make and are worth. I guess it all comes down to the Benjamins right? New Bachelorette Andi Dorfman actually has a real job…a-hem…as in ABC did not need to embellish anyone’s resume like when they made Sean Lowe an entrepreneur instead of a State Farm Insurance agent and making Juan Pablo Galavis a ‘music consultant’ instead of an unemployed single dad. Yes, Andi Dorfman has a SOLID, salaried job!
The 26-year-old Bachelorette works as a criminal prosecutor for Fulton County, Georgia. She is one of very few women working as a gang prosecutor.
And, yes Andi Dorfman HAS passed the BAR exam.
Andi is currently the Assistant District Attorney in the murder trial of rapper Lil Phat.
So how much does Andi Dorfman make?
The General Pay Scale contains five federal prosecutor jobs, one at each grade from GS-11 to GS-15. The GS-11 job is assigned to candidates with a law degree who haven’t yet been admitted to the bar and pays approximately $50,000 as of 2012.
But Andi has taken the BAR so she would be a GS-12 or above. Those with one year of post-law school clerkship, graduate study or fellowship experience are hired at GS-12, and pays approximately $60,000. Those with two to three years are hired at GS-13, which pays approximately $72,000.
So Andi has to currently make between $60,000 and $72,000 a year PLUS the adjustment for locality.
And she has the opportunity to make a whole lot more. Candidates move quickly through the lower grades until they reach the top grade of GS-15. An attorney can move from GS-11 to GS-15 in three and a half years. The pay range between the GS-14 minimum and the GS-15 maximum is approximately $85,000 to $130,000.
Also important to note A federal prosecutor’s salary is also determined by his or her location. Prosecutors in Atlanta earn an additional 19.29 percent in locality pay.
So in short, Andi is a great catch. She will definitely be able to bring home some of the bacon to her future fiancé.
She has officially taken an unpaid 6 month leave-of-absence but leads of The Bachelor/Bachelorette often make in the 6 figures for their role on the show.
Andi graduated from Louisiana State University in 2009. And earned her JD from Wake Forest’s Law School in 2012.
We also know her family appears to be quite wealthy.
Father 54-year-old Hy Lewis Dorfman, runs a successful commercial printing business in Duluth, GA called Harp, Ink.
Current estimates show the company has an annual revenue of $1 to 2.5 million a year.
