Ali Fedotowsky: Why I Think Bachelorette Emily Maynard Isn’t That Into Jef Holm
At least she keeps taking a stand. She may change it every week, but kudos to Season 6 Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky for putting herself out there as an opinionated blogger. That said, we kinda hope she’s wrong this week!
Early in the season, Ali had said Jef Holm could be The One for Emily Maynard on The Bachelorette Season 8. Then she said nope, Emily is 100 percent going to pick Arie Luyendyk, Jr. Last week she pulled a 180 and said nevermind, Arie is being groomed by producers to be the next Bachelor. She hasn’t strayed from that idea this week — although she doesn’t address it head on in her Episode 5 blog. Instead, she says Emily is super into both Sean Lowe and Arie … but not Jef.
Here’s more from Ali:
“OK, what I am about to say is going to throw a lot of people. Here it goes – Emily isn’t into Jef with one F (sad face). Why do I think this? She keeps saying ‘our relationship is slow to develop.’ Hate to say it, but that’s what you say about a guy who you’re not into or a guy who you are just better friends with. That is EXACTLY what I said about Chris L on my season. Don’t get me wrong, Chris is an awesome guy, but we were just friends. The romance was never really there. So I don’t care if Jef makes it to the top 4, 3, or even the top 2! I just don’t think Emily is feeling it, nor do I think she will. In the ‘real’ world, relationships develop slowly all the time, but not in Bachelorette world. You just don’t have the time to take it slow. Could I be wrong and Emily ends up with Jef with one F? Of course. It’s just what my gut tells me. That said, I do think Jef is super into Emily. He said that the way he feels about her is what ‘they write fairy tales about.’ How cute is that?! Next Bachelor? He’s got my vote.”
So Jef at least has Ali’s Bachelor vote, even if they do end up picking Arie (or Ali’s ex Roberto Martinez). Weird that she thinks Jef is super into Emily when Emily seems to feel the opposite. Her fear on the show, to this point, has been that she had stronger feelings for Jef than vice versa. Have his feelings grown past hers? Has he been overtaken in her eyes, by Sean and Arie? Or do you think next week Ali will be telling us Em definitely picks Jef?
