Chris Harrison has witnessed endless proposals, make-ups, and breakups in his Bachelor rosemaster reign. The host recently spoke with reporters about the end of one particular love story beloved by viewers: Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky and her chosen guy, Roberto Martinez. Chris explains the split wasn’t a salacious story of betrayal, but an age-old tale of different lifestyles.
Do you have any insight as to what caused Roberto and Ali to break up?
I don't know. I mean I have talked to both of them and I think it was just one of those things that they are definitely two — the more they got together I think they're just from two different lifestyles. Roberto is definitely more of a conservative, low key guy. Ali is more of a free spirit and does love the limelight and wants to be a television host, obviously because I guess she's chasing down jobs. I think that definitely did create a divide where he kind of wanted to slow down and settle down and she wanted to speed up and continue this life in the limelight. So I'm sure that was part of it, not all of it but you'd have to talk to them to get the details but I'm sure that lifestyles and their choices definitely play a huge part.
In other words: “It’s not you; it’s both of us.” Chris’ assessment is right on the money; Ali’s star is rapidly rising — she just inked a deal with NBC to host a new travel show, 1st Look, whereas Roberto has remained steadily off-the-radar since the very public split.
