Ali Fedotowsky is one of the 25 contestants who competed for the heart of Jake Pavelka on The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love. A native of Massachusetts, she works as an advertising account manager at Facebook—a factor that would later play a role in her fate on the ABC reality dating series.
As the first bachelorette contestant to go on a one-on-one date with Jake, Ali won a diamond necklace and conquered her fear of flying as Jake flew her off to Palm Springs where they had a romantic dinner and serenaded by the band Chicago. And though she had some major bones to pick with contestant Vienna, she still came across as a fan favorite and one of the frontrunners of the competition.
Ali made it as far as the hometown date with Jake on The Bachelor but decided to voluntarily leave when she was forced to choose between staying on the show or her career since she has taken too much time off from her job. Proving that she regrets her decision, Ali called Jake hoping he would take him back but didn’t give her a chance to come back since he had already moved on with his finale three, Gia, Tenley and Vienna.
Though Ali claims that she regrets her mistakes on The Bachelor, she seemingly found closure during The Women Tell All reunion special where she met with Jake and apologized to Vienna.
Ali currently stars on The Bachelorette season 6 where she hopes to find love among 25 men.
