I was having a case of the Mondays until I realized tonight is the finale of ABC’s “The Bachelorette!” Clear your schedules because this finale is supposed to be a juicy, reality-show shocker.
It’s hard to predict what the Bachelorette, Ali Fedotowsky, will do after this roller coaster of a season. From the very first episode, her affections were obviously for Illinois-based Frank, who made it to the top three only to leave Ali crying in Tahiti after confessing he is still in love with his ex-girlfriend. And if you had a chance to catch the “Men Tell All” episode, Ali says in tears “I thought I was going to spend my life with him” in an un-edited, flashback clip from that tragic day.
Although there is some speculation that she will end up with Frank since he is set to appear in the finale, this Valley Girl must wonder why a girl who has the hearts of two eligible bachelors (one an extremely handsome ex-baseball player by the way), Roberto and Chris, would ever take back a confused, 31-year-old heart-breaker who still lives with his parents. Don’t ask me.
But does Ali really have Roberto and Chris’ hearts? That too is up for speculation as the finale preview airs Roberto, the 26-year-old insurance agent from South Carolina, in a confused state. ABC even discloses him saying: “I don’t know if I can do this. I don’t know if I can propose” and “I’m not going to do it.” Adding to the drama, Ali also states that she has “wasted [her] time.” Even Chris, the 33-year-old landscaper from Cape Cod, confesses that he’s “not there yet.”
Ali Fedotowsky was the girl “who got away” in last season’s “The Bachelor.” The San Francisco native sent herself home in tears after she had to choose between her job and the Bachelor. Even though she sadly and obviously chose her job, she came back for a second chance in finding true love. Whether she found love or just more heartache, we will find out tonight at 8/7 Central!
