Why did he have to get our hopes up so high? It's fine to say the season is phenomenal, but to say it's the best ever? It really ticks me off!Chris Harrison: Ali's time as "The Bachelorette" was tumultuous to say the least. It was a tough run for her. The more I got to know her … everybody brings their baggage, whether it is Jake Pavelka or Andrew Firestone … you bring your life and your history. Part of Ali's is that she is insecure, and her fear was that she wasn't going to be loved back. There were things she had to deal with along the way that reinforced that fear, so it was really interesting for her to have that fear, have it realized and have to deal with it. In the end, she did a great job and she was a phenomenal Bachelorette. I hate to say it, because I have said it before, but it was one of our best seasons we have ever had. It is a phenomenal season from the storylines, to Ali, to the travel, to the guys.
