Ali Fedotowsky, a 25-year-old account manager, was an early front-runner on the 14th season of “The Bachelor” with Jake Pavelka; however, she and Jake 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 grew up in Williamstown, Massachusetts, and graduated summa cum laude from Clark University in New England with a degree in psychology. After graduation, she moved to San Francisco to pursue her career dream of working in advertising.
Ali’s journey as the sixth Bachelorette kicked off at Bachelor Mansion, where she met 25 excited suitors, all willing to leave their world at home behind for a chance at love. During the season, Ali took her men to beautiful locations around the world, including Malibu Beach, Las Vegas, New York City, Iceland, Turkey, and Portugal. They were also treated to a surprise appearance from the Barenaked Ladies and performances from Jamie Cullum and Joshua Radin.
After visiting the hometowns of her final four suitors, Ali and her final three traveled to the magical islands of Tahiti. There, in front of the world-famous Tahitian sunset, Ali accepted a proposal from Roberto Martinez, a 26-year-old insurance agent from Tampa, Florida.
