Photo from ABC.comThe new season of The Bachelorette premieres tonight and I'm looking forward to seeing my favorite contestant from last season's The Bachelor, Ali Fedotowsky, have a shot at finding love.
I was shocked, heartbroken, and shocked some more when Ali unexpectedly left The Bachelor because her employer gave her the ultimatum: Return to work or lose her job. I had her penned for winning that season, and she and Jake living happily ever after. It just wasn't meant to be. And honestly, after watching the rest of the season and Jake's sad attempt at more reality TV, I'm thinking she's way better off.
Since being dismissed, Ali has juggled her priorities around (or ended up getting fired when she unsuccessfully pleaded for Jake to take her back on the show), and now she's the one that gets to hand out the roses.
The season premiere is tonight at 9/8c on ABC.
Are you planning on watching it? Are you happy that Ali is the bachelorette?
