I am pretty sure they pay enough to their leads that they don't have to worry about a job for a while....Originally Posted by smartguy24;3821893;
1. She was the one and was really heartbroken so they let her leave for a possible return - after all almost every season fans BEG for a favorite to return at the FRC and win the lead's heart. They figure Ali is their shot at this ending.
2. They could have said to Ali stay - and if he doesn't pick you - then you are our Bachelorette. The risk here was that Jake would actually pick her.
So they actually let her leave and will wait and see how she plays out on screen and then pay her enough money to be the Bachelorette to leave her job.
3. Ali really loved Jake (or didn't love Jake - take your pick) and really had to choose and now she is happy at FB and she will fade into Bachelor obscurity.
