March 02, 2010 02:00 PM by Nancy Floyd


Fans of ABC‘s The Bachelor had one thing to smile about during last night’s finale (since you were no doubt sobbing over Jake’s choice of Vienna): Ali Fedotowsky has been named the new Bachelorette! The 25-year old California beauty shocked fans of The Bachelor when she left the dating show on her own accord to save her career, but now the working woman is getting a second chance at love on The Bachelorette. Keep reading for all the details…

Fans may have been hoping that The Bachelor would end up with Ali Fedotowsky in the end, but now viewers can watch the adorable San Francisco resident search for love on her own terms as The Bachelorette! During last night’s After the Final Rose special, ABC announced that fan favorite Ali Fedotowsky would be starring as the sixth Bachelorette in the show’s franchise. The manhunt will begin taping in just a few short weeks as Ali dates 25 guys in hopes of finding “the one.”

After joking that she’d like 50 guys instead of 25, Ali got serious and expressed her excitement and  gratefulness to be chosen as  The Bachelorette. ”I am so excited!” she gushed to The Bachelor and  The Bachelorette host, Chris Harrison. ”I am so thrilled and honored and grateful, I just can’t believe it! I’m just really grateful.”

While the prospect of being The Bachelorette scared her at first, Ali decided that ”I am not going to let my fear dictate my life anymore. I want to fall in love, have kids, all of that. I am not going to make the same mistake I made before,” she said.

So what’s in store for The Bachelorette which premieres on ABC on May 24? Ali and her men will be heading to the Big Apple! Some portion of the show will be filmed in New York City. When pressed about what type of guy she’s hoping to find on The Bachelorette, Ali said, “I want a funny, smart, kind of quirky guy. In general, I don’t really need anything in particular. I’m not looking for a type of guy, I’m looking for a feeling.”

The Bachelorette will return to ABC on May 24th.
