ALI FEDOTOWSKY PUTS IT ALL ON THE LINE FOR HER SECOND CHANCE AT LOVE
WHEN SHE BECOMES "THE BACHELORETTE," PREMIERING MAY 24 ON ABC
Ali Fedotowsky has finally decided to risk it all for love. The energetic and charismatic career-oriented woman from San Francisco has re-prioritized her life - and now love comes out on top. She will have her own opportunity to find her soul mate when she stars in the sixth edition of "The Bachelorette," which will premiere MONDAY, MAY 24 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network. The identity of the new Bachelorette was revealed tonight on "The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love -- After the Final Rose."
Ali, 25, has been a fan favorite from the moment she stepped out of the limo with her sexy raspy voice and a peacock feather to meet Jake Pavelka on the last season of "The Bachelor." She became the front-runner for Jake's heart, but instead they found themselves in a heartbreaking situation when she made a gut-wrenching decision to choose a job she loved over the man she loved. Ali made the surprising safe choice to go back to work, but regretted it immediately. By the time she sorted out her work affairs, Jake had already moved on with his search for love with the three fabulous women who stayed with him, and he did not allow Ali to return. But it's not too late for Ali now. Admitting that she made one of the biggest mistakes of her life, she has let go of everything this time - her apartment, her job, her stability - to really make a life-changing commitment to put her heart first.
Ali grew up in Williamstown, Massachusetts, with one sister, one brother and their parents. Although she gave up her chance at a future with Jake, she has set her sights on a reliable, funny and humble guy who can challenge her. Even though this Bachelorette is known more for her work ethic, she loves to play. She enjoys hiking, wake boarding and playing soccer, but also takes pleasure in going to wine tastings.
After attending Mount Greylock Regional High School, where she played varsity soccer for four years, she graduated Summa Cum Laude with a degree in psychology from Clark University in New England. She also was a member of Phi Beta Kappa. Ali moved to California after graduation in 2006 and most recently was employed as an account manager in online advertising.
Hosted by Chris Harrison, "The Bachelorette" is produced by Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television. Mike Fleiss and Martin Hilton are the executive producers.

And honestly I think he's more her type than Jake ever was. I'm still debating whether or not to bring a pic of him into the discussion, though.
in an interview after the WTA Ali also said that she wants a southern guy :)
So there's a bunch of guys going through all that psych analysis right now? Since they already know Ali inside out they should be able to pick out some suitable guys. It'll be interesting to see what type of guy is a good fit for her.
I think they've already done all the psych tests. This week is them sifting through the last round on finalists and deciding who will make the cast. I hope they do pick some guys who would be a good match for her, but I doubt that's how they decide.Quote:

The Bachelorette page is up and running on ABC's official web-site. All it shows is a picture of Ali and it says she is the next bachelorette. They'll probably update it after filming which seems sooo far away!
