She also thinks her runner-up, Chris Lambton, "would have made a great Bachelor. But I totally respect his reasons for not [doing the show]. I respect him a lot for his decision." Other good options from Season 6 of The Bachelorette? "Craig R. would have been great," Ali says, "and so would Kirk. Kirk has been through so much in his life, and has such a positive outlook on life. He would've appreciated and just cherished every moment of the experience — which is hard to do sometimes when you are going off of three hours sleep and haven't eaten in 12 hours, and you're on a date."
But she sympathizes with the real Bachelor choice, Brad Womack, who too heat for dumping two women on Season 11 and is taking more heat for getting this second chance on Season 15. "Bless his heart for actually wanting to do this a second time, because it's hard!" Ali says. "If I had to do it all over again...to find Roberto? Yes. But would I want to? Probably not. It's hard, so good luck buddy!"
