Bachelor Nation Wiki

The 10th season of The Bachelorette premiered on May 19, 2014. The season featured 26-year-old Andi Dorfman, an assistant district attorney.

Unlike the rest of the Bachelorettes (except Sharleen), Dorfman was not sent home by the Bachelor on her season, the 18th season of The Bachelor, featuring Juan Pablo Galavis. Instead, she chose to leave on the ninth episode, the morning after her overnight date in the fantasy suite with Galavis, because he upset her. She is the second woman to become the Bachelorette after quitting a season, the first being Ali Fedotowsky.

She ultimately chose Josh Murray and accepted his proposal.

Development and filming[]

The Bachelorette and her male contestants began shooting on Wednesday, March 12, 2014 in California. Other locales include Connecticut, France, Italy and Belgium with performances from Boyz II Men and American Young.

Just before the cast announcement, Eric Hill, a 31-year-old intrepid quest traveler from California, was critically injured on Easter Sunday, April 20, when he slammed into a mountain near Draper, Utah. His parachute had collapsed during a paragliding accident after he concluded his filming. Hill died of injuries three days later on April 23. It was announced the show would honor Hill by dedicating the upcoming season to him.

On the season premiere, host Chris Harrison dedicated the season to Hill:

"Throughout the years many hundreds of men and women have come on this show in search of love, and they've all become a part of what we consider part of this family. At this time, we'd like to take a moment to honor one of these men — our friend, Eric Hill. Eric passed away shortly after concluding his filming of this show. In the coming weeks, you'll see Eric was a vibrant man. Every day he impressed us with his passion and courageous spirit. He will be greatly missed, and we dedicate this season to him."


The season began with 25 contestants.

Eric died on April 23, 2014, after having already completed his filming.
