Unless you've been living under a rock the past couple of days, then you're already aware that Ali Fedotowsky, one of the frontrunners who competed for Jake Pavelka on The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love
, will star on the sixth season of The Bachelorette
. The official announcement was made by host Chris Harrison during Monday's After the Final Rose special
, where Fedotowsky expressed her joy and enthusiasm in getting her second shot at love.
"I am so excited. I'm so thrilled and honored and grateful. I just can't believe it. I'm really grateful," Ali Fedotowsky said during The Bachelor
episode. "I want to find someone and I want to be in love and I want to get married and have kids -- all of that. This is my chance."
"When I found out -- or when I was even first approached -- I was kind of scared at first. I almost went right back to how I felt when I had to make the decision with Jake," Fedotowsky added. "I kept thinking to myself, 'Why am I feeling this way again?' I just realized I'm not going to let my fear dictate my life anymore. I just need to go for it."
Ali Fedotowsky will officially begin her journey on The Bachelorette
on Monday, May 24 at 9pm ET/PT, according to ABC. Meanwhile, fans can learn more about ABC's next love searcher through the slideshow below.
