    Re: Bachelorette 6: Ali MEDIA

    Bringing over this article from the Roberto thread.

    Finally!! A great article about Roberto!! And Ali!! And with glowing first-hand reports by his former coaches about Roberto's and Ali's amazing off-screen chemistry during the baseball shoot!!

    Former University of Tampa baseball player down to final 4 vying for bachelorette Ali's heart

    Bachelorette picks Tampa man as final four

    By: Sarina Fazan

    TAMPA - The University of Tampa Baseball field is known as home of the Spartans. This Monday, it is the back drop for the home visit between Ali and Roberto.

    The bachelorette has chosen the Tampa native as one of her final four men. In 2003, Roberto Martinez was a star player for the Spartans under head coach Joe Urso.

    "He was throwing 90 miles an hour out of high school, he was great stop hitting home runs and we had big plans for him," Urso said.

    A shoulder injury sidelined those dreams. But for Coach Sam Militello, this bachelor is a super star through and through.

    "Roberto has that Rico Suave (sp.) look to him and I figured if anybody that we coached would be in something like this it would be him. He is a very good looking guy and drew alot of attention but never showed it. He was always very humble about it."

    Both Coach Militello and Coach Urso were invited to the shoot that took close to four hours. The whole field was shut down as they got a front row seat to watch the interaction and observe.

    “The whole field was theirs. They were hugging as they were running around the bases. It seemed like they were having a ball." Militello said.

    Everything was “hush hush” for the shoot back in spring and the coaches had to sign a confidentiality agreement.

    "It was a long day but it was exciting. It is nice to finally talk about it now that everyone knows Roberto is in the final four. What was neat was when they weren't on camera and getting ready for the next shot or whatever and to see them still kissing, still hugging and this is when we are thinking this is going to happen, Roberto is going to make it through these finals and probably be picked." Uros said.

    Militello shared the same sentiments.

    "It was very natural. They got a long great they were smitten even off the camera and that is what we kept talking about," he said.


    But there was something surprising as well.

    "Usually in a show like this, you see that she (Ali) would have more control. But in this case she seemed intimidated by him. But he is great, a great guy. He comes from a great family, you could not ask for a greater guy." Militello said.

    In fact, both these coaches say while they would not want to see Roberto's heart broken, it would not be heartbreaking either. Perhaps then he would have a shot at the Bachelor.

    "My wife has been watching this show and Roberto. This guy has captured hearts. It would be great to see him as the next bachelor," Urso said.

    Also, here is my reply to a post about the intimidated comment --

    I totally disagree. You have to consider the context of this one non-glowing comment.

    Ali was on Roberto's turf with his former coaches watching. So of course she had every right to be a little intimidated and of course she looked to Roberto to guide her through this. I would also think she was a little shy around the first people she met who knew Roberto and that shyness may have come across and intimidation also.

    In the context Ali not being in control seems perfectly normal and expected!

    If you are unable to save and open this link then you can watch the video from the link to the article.

    Does anyone know if Ali actually does write the blog on People? If so, something I caught today that she wrote:

    I know I say it every episode, but how hot is Roberto?! Especially in that baseball uniform … I am one lucky girl!
    If these are actually her words, it would be the second time she's referred to Roberto in present tense. The other one being something like, "I've never been treated the way Roberto treats me."

    There was no other present tense usage relating to the other guys in her post-- she did say things like "I heart grandma." and a few other general references to indicate how she feels today, so I thought it was interesting that we now have two direct references to how she feels about Roberto in the present.

    I think those blogs are written in present tense because it is supposed to be a blog that Ali writes about the episode in present time. (when filming is still going on.) In other words, she isn't writing those blogs now after filming is over. She writes them after that episode, so her using present tense makes sense.

    luv2dance ^^: I think that was Fleiss' goal last night. To have people fall in love with Chris and hope he is the one Ali chooses, only for them to be disappointed in the end when he gets rejected. jmo.

    Am I crazy or was there a sneak peek somewhere a couple weeks ago of Ali and Roberto's date in Portugal where he tells her he'll be her prince or something like that? Does anybody remember that or know where I can find it?

    Yep, but it didn't make the episode. You might be able to find it at Joker's.
