Ali Fedotowsky, 25, had that dramatic exit toward the end of the last season of The Bachelor, when her job at Facebook was on the line and she chose work over love.
But when she got a chance to do the choosing herself, she changed her mind and decided to trade social media for the title of “Bachelorette.”
“I believe everything happens for a reason,” Fedotosky tells Zap2it. “In retrospect, it’s not so much that I made a mistake as much as I learned a lesson. I have put my career first in my life. The last few years, I was trying to build a career. I will never be happy in my career or life if I don’t find love. I am so glad I made this choice. I have no doubt in my life that everything happens for a reason.”
Fedotowsky’s been so busy taping “The Bachelorette,” which returns May 24, that she hasn’t had time to see “The Bachelor” she left behind, Jake Pavelka, on “Dancing With the Stars.”
“As soon as I have access to the Internet, I will watch all of it,” she promises.
“Dancing With the Stars” has several “Bachelor”/”Bachelorette” connections with former contestants Pavelka, Melissa Rycroft and Trista Sutter all having taken a turn around the ballroom dance floor.
“I don’t think I would be any good,” Fedotowsky’s says when asked if she has any aspirations to follow in their dance shoes. “I think it would be fun, but I haven’t been asked.”
