Ali Fedotowsky Is Never Coming Back: “I’m a Bachelorette No More”
In case you were hoping for the sixth Bachelorette to make a glorious return to the show to find love (again), you can stop holding your breath. Ali Fedotowsky says that she and the show are never ever getting back together.
"I'm out. I'm a Bachelorette no more," the 28-year-old tells Extra. "I tried, and the reason I did the show was because I thought it might be my calling. Now? Not so much."
While Ali does reveal that she's still "a sucker" for the show, she's continuing her search for Mr. Right off-air, saying, "I'm going to find love the old fashioned way."
In case you only discovered the existence of television recently — hey, congrats! — Ali first vied for Jake Pavelka's heart during Season 14 of The Bachelor in 2010 before leaving in the sixth week to save her job at Facebook.
Then she returned later that year as The Bachelorette. Roberto Martinez ended up winning her over, and the two stayed engaged for a year and a half before going their separate ways.
Now, as she continues her job as the host of NBC's 1st Look, Ali says that she's ready to start dating again.
"I've been single over a year now, a year and two months, but who's counting? Exactly 14 months and three days. So I'm ready at this point."
