Andi Dorfman, one of the early frontrunners on this season of "The Bachelor," makes her living taking down gangs and organized crime as a federal prosecutor in Atlanta but the 26-year-old appears to be "playing dumb" for the sake of the ABC reality show.
Dorfman, a Wake Forest University School of Law graduate, is a lawyer with the Fulton County District Attorney's Office in Atlanta and, in courtroom video obtained this week by TMZ
, presents herself as knowledgeable, tough, confident, and smart. The footage was from a murder trial against ex-mobster Mani Chulpayev, according to MSN's Wonderwall

Regardless, Dorfman has emerged as an early frontrunner, scoring the endorsements of many Twitter users.
