Yes Ali is indeed Ed Jr. All I could think is O.K. this is the Ed and Jillian script all over again. Fleiss must think his audience is so dumb that we can't see through it. I just hope it doesn't end up with him picking Ali when she comes back (because we all know she WILL come back) because she has proven to be a very selfish and egotistical person. The way she treated Vienna how could her mother say she is a wonderful person? We have heard nothing about Ali's previous relationships. If she loves Massachusetts and her Grandma so much what is she doing living in San Francisco? I hope this is the last season for The Bachelor/Bachelorette because it is getting too unreal for even the most dedicated reality fans!
