Ali Fedotowsky will forever be the Bachelorette to us — but she’s moved on to greener NBC pastures, hosting the new travel show 1st Look, airing Saturdays after Saturday Night Live. In her new gig, Ali travels the country looking for the best food, hotels, and adventures in cities from Chicago to Orlando. "I've eaten bone marrow, fried alligator, fried frog legs, fertilized duck eggs. It's kinda weird, but I was like 'when in Rome!'" Ali tells SheKnows in a new interview.
Traveling is helping Ali to expand more than just her culinary horizons — it’s also helping the former almost-Mrs. Roberto Martinez think about love again. Ali, who split from Roberto in late 2011, says she’s “not quite ready” to date again, but adds, “I would say, if I happen to stumble upon someone, I wouldn’t shy away. I’m definitely open to finding love again. Maybe when I’m traveling, I’ll meet someone on the road.”
Ali’s also got her eye on another Bachelor connection: Season 16 winner (and Ben Flajnik’s fiancée) Courtney Robertson! "She's great," Ali says. "We exchanged information and I think we're going to get together later in the week. She's in L.A. I'm in L.A. You can always use more girlfriends." Hey, when in Rome! And L.A. is basically Rome for Bachelor Nation.
