Ali Fedotowsky’s Bachelorette Blog: How ABC Could Improve the Show
Desiree Hartsock seemed pretty impressed with the harem of hotties ABC picked for her on The Bachelorette Season 9, but some of these dudes were major duds. (Looking at you, Jonathan Vollinger.)
Despite the fact that Desiree has some great contenders in her pool of future hubbies, fellow BacheloretteAli Fedotowsky thinks Des would have an even better chance at finding love if she got to hand-pick her contestants!
"The Bachelorette knows nothing about the guys before night one," Ali writes in her E! blog. "In all honesty, I wish I had some knowledge of the guys on my season. I wish that I got to see 10-second clips of them beforehand.... I knew what kind of guy I wanted and I would've been able to cut through many of the guys right away just hearing them talk for a bit."
Let's not forget that The Bachelorette has a pretty terrible success rate (only two of the nine ladies have stayed with their finale rose winners!), but Ali thinks the show could do better if the Bachelorette in question had some control.
"Ninety percent of the time you know whether or not you would date someone within 30 seconds of meeting them," she continues. "I honestly think the show's success rate would be much higher if the Bachelorette had a hand in picking the guys. Just sayin'."
We'd love to see a future Bachelorette take the reigns from Chris Harrison and pick her men! Do you agree with Ali's brilliant plan, or do you think the Bachelorette's fate should be left in the clutches of ABC?
