Monday on TV: Utah resident begins pursuit of 'The Bachelorette'

The Bachelorette (8:30 p.m.., ABC/Ch. 4) returns tonight, and there are a couple of Utah ties - one of them very unfortunate.

Andi Dorfman, who ABC describes as a "fan favorite" after being one of the young women chasing "Bachelor" Juan Pablo last fall, "gets a second chance at love," according to the network, as this season's "Bachelorette."

ABC also tells us that Andi, 27, "put her dream job of being an Atlanta assistant district attorney on hold to pursue her love of a lifetime," which is sort of disturbing.

Among her 25 suitors in 29-year-old Mike Campanelli, a native of Guilderland, N.Y. (near Albany) who's currently living in Alta, Utah. He has a degree in mechanical engineering and design innovation from RIT (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) but he's working as a bartender at Alta's Rustler Lodge.

The other Utah tie is tragic. Contestant Eric Hill, 32,died after a paragliding accident on April 23 in Draper. Hill was from Citrus Heights, Calif.; he graduated from BYU; he was living in Salt Lake City.
