Ali Fedotowsky‘s search for love on "The Bachelorette" has ended. After starting out with 25 men, the former Facebook employee ended up with two "amazing guys with big hearts." Did she pick Chris or Roberto?
By agreeing to be this season’s Bachelorette, Ali sacrificed her job, moved out of her apartment and abandoned life as she knew it. “I wanted to risk it all for love,” says Ali, who had to decide if either of her final two suitors — Charleston insurance agent Roberto Martinez, 26, and landscaper Chris Lambton, 33 — were right for her.
“They’re both great guys,” Ali said on Monday’s season finale, acknowledging that each man has nothing but the best to offer her. “But I need to pick who’s right for me.”
Ali, 25, accepted Roberto’s marriage proposal in Bora Bora. It was apparent as she had her final date with him that she was truly smitten. After an adventure-filled day of jet-skiing, wading among a school of stingrays and picnicking on a private beach, the two shared passionate kisses as they lay in each other’s arms that night.
“I love Roberto,” Fedotowsky confessed, saying to the camera that despite having a date planned with Chris the next day, she didn’t want to say goodbye.
The following morning, Ali showed up for her date with Chris, but instead of going on an island adventure, she gently broke the news to him that he was not the one. “I’m in love with somebody else,” she said. “I have to let you go here and not wait till tomorrow.” Ali explained that she didn’t want Chris to have to go through the motions of showing up the next day to propose.
