The 25-year-old reality star appeared on the Ryan Seacrest‘s KIIS-FM radio show Monday, and when asked if rumors are true that she doesn’t choose anyone on the dating show, Ali coyly replied “maybe.”
“If I happen to find love on the show, would I pick someone in the end? Yes,” she went on. “But if I didn’t find love on the show, there’s absolutely no way that I would pick someone for the sake of picking. I went in with that mindset and it didn’t change the entire time.”
Ali, who famously chose her Facebook advertising executive job over Jake Pavelka last year vows to not make the same mistake again.
“Not that I think leaving Jake was the wrong choice…but I think putting a job over love is not really the right choice,” she said. “Honestly, when I think back to it, if I really, truly thought I could end up with Jake and we were meant for each other and were probably going to get married, I probably would have given up my job at Facebook.”
Ali also reveals she’s open to any opportunity that may come her way including an appearance on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars.

The new season of The Bachelorette featuring Ali Fedotowsky premiered Monday night, but the hot topic on the minds of viewers seems to be the upcoming scandal this season, when it is discovered that one of the men vying for Ali’s heart already had not one, but two girlfriends back home.
That man is Canadian wrestler Justin Rego aka Rated R. Interestingly enough, Justin was voted by the other men on the show as being there for the wrong reasons on Monday’s premiere episode. And while some of the past douche bags on the show were able to get away with two timing, think the Wes scandal from Jillian Harris’sseason, Justin wasn’t quite so lucky, as one of his girlfriends actually called Ali during filming of the show.
The girlfriend that made the phone call to Ali (set to air during a later episode) was Jessica Spillas, pictured in the white top above. According to RealitySteve, Jessica is a 19-year-old from Toronto, Canada, and according to her, Justin was her longtime boyfriend who only went on the show to further his wrestling career.
So why did Jessica decide to out Justin out to Ali? Well apparently while the show was filming earlier this year, Jessica found out Justin had been tow timing her with another girl named Kimberly Kerekes (pictured in the middle above). Jessica then contacted former Bachelor contestant Jessie Sulidis, who also ails from Toronto. Jessie put Jessica in touch with the show’s producers, thus leading to the infamous phone call to Ali.
The other girl, Kimberly, also gave a recent interview to RadarOnline, during which she reveals she had no idea Justin had another girlfriend back home. Kimberly also reveals she had been dating Justin for three months before he left to do the show.

Ali, who is best known for leaving last season’s Bachelor after choosing her job over Jake Pavelka, vows thing will be different this go around. During the intro segment of the Bachelorette premiere, Ali declares, “I’m ready to meet someone and put him first,” and even informs host Chris Harrison that she’s ready to have a child!
But don’t expect Ali to have a drama free season. As we reported, one of the guys is revealed to be two timing Ali as the season goes along. Cocky wrestler Justin Rego, who goes by the moniker “Rated R,” had a girlfriend while on the show, and the GF will reportedly call Ali to let her know.
Despite all the drama, what people want to know is did Ali find love on this show? Ali is playing coy, only saying, “Do I have tan on my ring finger? I’m very happy. I just made the decisions that were the ones I felt the most confident in along the way. I’m very proud of each decision that I made, whether or not I fell in love, you’ll have to tune in to see.”
TELL US: WILL YOU BE WATCHING THIS SEASON’S BACHELORETTE? WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PREMIERE EPISODE?
The new season of the Bachelorette has wrapped up and is set to premiere next Monday.
However, as we have all become accustomed to with the previous seasons, its almost impossible for these shows to do without the revelation of scandal or drama. As we previously reported, Ali Fedotowsky is no exception to this.
It has come out that one of her bachelors, Canadian wrestler Justin Rego, actually had a girlfriend while on the show.
Host Chris Harrisontells ET, “Ali’s time as The Bachelorette was tumultuous to say the least… It was a tough run for her. The more I got to know her… everybody brings their baggage, whether it is Jake Pavelka or Andrew Firestone… you bring your life and your history. Part of Ali’s is that she is insecure, and her fear was that she wasn’t going to be loved back.”
Chris continues, “Everyone brings their own baggage to the show. Ali [is] a girl that has in the past been hurt before.” Chris also adds that despite appearing confident and independent, Ali is very vulnerable.
“She really had this fear of almost being rejected. Like, ‘Yes, I’m going to fall in love, but I’m really worried that I’m not going to get love back.’…Everyone has their kind of bones in the closet that they have to deal with. Hers was ‘I’m going to put myself out there. I really think I’m going to fall in love, but are these guys going to love me back?'”
Ali’s season premieres Monday May 24 at 9|8c on ABC.

We are now getting a first look at Ali Fedotowsky as the newest Bachelorette on the block. ABC has released some press photos of the 25 year old formerBachelor contestant.
According to numerous reports, Ali started filming her season two weeks ago. The two-hour premiere of The Bachelorette will debut on ABC Monday, May 24 from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET.
It’s safe to say ABC is trying to project Ali as the girl next door by having her wear a pair of sneakers with her dress; allrighty then. More on the press release below –
“Ali, 25, has been a fan favorite from the moment she stepped out of the limo with her sexy raspy voice and a peacock feather to meet Jake Pavelka on the last season of The Bachelor. She became the front-runner for Jake’s heart, but instead they found themselves in a heartbreaking situation when she made a gut-wrenching decision to choose a job she loved over the man she loved. Ali made the surprising safe choice to go back to work, but regretted it immediately.
But it’s not too late for Ali now. Admitting that she made one of the biggest mistakes of her life, she has let go of everything this time her apartment, her job, her stability to really make a life-changing commitment to put her heart first.”

The season’s Bachelor finale was rather uneventful thanks to the leaks and accurate spoilers that found their way online since January.
Jake Pavelka, 32, did what had been heavily reported, by picking Vienna Girardi, a 23-year-old Florida-based marketing representative to be his fiance, over Tenley Molzahn, 25. The couple appeared on the After the Final Rose show, and appeared very much in love. When asked about a wedding date, they revealed they had yet to set one, but Vienna does plan on moving to Texas to be with Jake.
The biggest shocker of the night actually came when Jake was announced to be one of the contestants on Dancing With The Stars.
Ali Fedotowsky,25, was also named as the new Bachelorette, which did not come as a surprise, because this information was also leaked weeks ago. “I’m so excited!” she told host Chris Harrison. “I am so thrilled and honored and grateful. I just can’t believe it.”
For some reason, ABC keeps telling us Ali is a viewer’s favorite, when in fact most viewer comments about Ali have been very negative. Perhaps people will tune in because they love to hate her.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE FINALE? ON ALI BEING THE NEW BACHELORETTE?
The Bachelor’sJake Pavelka has narrowed down his final choices of bachelorettes to the final 2, and according to our Bachelor poll, an overwhelming 81% of you are pulling for TenleyMolzahn to win Jake’s heart.
Another person who seems to be rooting for Tenley is someone all too familiar with the situation. Former BacheloretteJillian Harris reveals to UsWeekly that she is Team Tenley, while her fiance Ed Swiderski is pulling for Vienna.
UsWeeklyinterviewed both Jillian and Ed, during which they shared their thoughts on this season’s Bachelor, and discuss their openness to having a televised wedding.
Us: What are your thoughts on the women on this season’s Bachelor? ES: We had a chance to meet most of the girls, and I still take them at face value, yes I’m biased because I went through the ringer with you guys, but the truth is I read that stuff and I’m like she’s [Vienna’s] a normal person, she really is, yes she’s gone through some weird stuff, she had some fun and whatever she did, but she’s been pretty loyal to Jake as far as we know. JH: The thing is everyone has a past, everyone was young and dumb at one point, everyone was vulnerable at one point, everyone has made mistakes, we all have our skeletons in the closet, and maybe she has more for whatever reason. If he picked her or if he picked any other girl, it doesn’t even — we hope that it will last, but in the grand scheme of things this is supposed to be fun and it’s supposed to be light-hearted and there’s so many more awful things in the world to stress out about. For me I just look at it and am like well she probably shouldn’t have done all the bikini shoots and maybe shouldn’t have signed up for the show but everybody is human and all those girls on the show deserve to find happiness. Not one of them is a vindictive awful bad person.
Us: Having been on the show and talked to Jake, who’s your preference? JH: I’ve always thought Tenley was a good person for [Jake]. ES: They come off as the perfect couple I think because they’re both religious, they’re both praying to end up together. But who knows. Maybe Vienna is a better person than she’s being portrayed. Ali I don’t know, there’s something about her that rubs me the wrong way. She was a bit too sassy for my liking. I think she was cute, a great-looking girl, great personality, intelligent but maybe she was a little too sassy. She left a little too easily I thought. Us: What advice would you give to Jake? JH: It’s so hard because as much as you say hang on tight, don’t listen to what anyone says, lean on your friends and family, it’s hard. ES: It’s got to be like one-on-one get through it together, otherwise you won’t. you can’t just say ignore it, it’ll go away, because it’s not going to go away. You have to learn how to deal with it and either improve your relationship or move on.
