The sixth season of The Bachelorette just concluded in astonishing fashion as Ali Fedotowsky actually picked Roberto Martinez as the man of her dreams.

The most stunning part was not that she let Chris Lambton go before the final rose ceremony to spare him the agony, but that she picked anyone at all.

For weeks, Bachelorette spoilers suggested that Ali is single - that she either chose no one on the dramatic finale, or had already broken up with Roberto.

Not the case.

As for the "shocking ending" promised by the teasers, the "huge risk" Ali took and the "unprecedented" nature of the finale? Now we know. It wasn't about the outcome, but how she handled hard-luck Chris in the final episode of the season.

Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez hit it off from day one.

Having fallen in love with his rival, Ali cut Chris loose even before his "last chance" date, breaking the guy's heart, but earning his respect in the process.

Start the Make Chris Lambton The Bachelor petition now, fans!

This twist explains the glaring lack of footage of Ali and the guys at final rose ceremony in previews leading up to tonight, because Chris never made it. They couldn't show just Roberto Martinez, or it would have given it away.

And there you have the much-hyped breaking of rules by Ali Fedotowsky - letting Chris walk, laying it on the line with Roberto and hoping he felt the same.

He does. They are engaged and planning their life together.

The Bachelorette did an uncharacteristically good job of keeping the finale's outcome a mystery, from Ali's coy remarks about being "happy with her decision" to the lack of promos. Kudos to them and congratulations to Alberto.

We'll have complete coverage tomorrow and all week, but tell us quickly here: Are you happy with the ending? Will Ali and Roberto last?

A former USC Trojan, football star Matt Leinart may be putting his former mascot to use in a different way with Ali Fedotowsky ... if you know what we mean!

We mean sex. Protected style.

Rumors are circulating that The Bachelorette star does not find love and happiness and picks no one the finale of the reality show Monday night.

Might this be further proof?

According to Star, when Ali met the Arizona Cardinals quarterback at a July 15 at a charity event, sparks flew after they talked "by themselves."

Ali Fedotowsky and Matt Leinart pose for a photo. Oooh!

By the end of the night, the jock scored Ali's digits: "Matt finally asked for Ali's phone number and she happily gave it to him," a witness says.

"He promised that he'd call her; she must be over the moon about catching the eye of such a hot guy!" Well, unless she's engaged, of course.

There are rumors if her rejecting both guys, or that Roberto Martinez proposes, but they didn't make a go of it and she's already single again.

We also theorize that perhaps she still hasn't decided.

Guess we'll find out soon enough ... and we may very well be surprised. But we would be astonished if Matt Leinart were at all a factor in this.

With just a few days remaining until The Bachelorette season finale, speculation is still running rampant about what its star, Ali Fedotowsky, decides.

Does she choose Roberto Martinez or Chris Lambton? Does she reject both remaining suitors in what would amount to a huge emotional letdown?

Whatever the case, the show has done well keeping it under wraps. All Bachelorette spoilers we know are the same ones we've known for weeks.

Perhaps this is a testament to the greatness of Reality Steve, god among spoiler fiends for several seasons and perennial thorn in Mike Fleiss' side.

While he stands by what he says happens (follow the link above to read about it), he admits he has been stymied somewhat regarding the finale.

There's even a theory circulating that producers went so far as to film two different episodes of the After The Final Rose special as a smokescreen.

Ali Looking On

Are Ali Fedotowsky and The Bachelorette plotting a real surprise?

Ratings for the show have not exactly suffered as a result of spoilers leaking, but just the same, ABC would likely nix this occurrence if possible.

Would they really go to such lengths, though?

The lack of a single shot of the final rose ceremony in any preview to date is also strange. Could it be there is no ceremony or final rose doled out?

This theory is supported by Ali's vague comments about her tough decision, being content with what she did, etc. But it could be part of the act.

Is it possible that, just maybe, producers and Ali Fedotowsky pushed the decision back until the After The Final Rose special, which is being secretly taped this week, and no one knows the outcome because it hasn't been decided yet?

That's just our hypothesis, but longtime host and pimp Chris Harrison said that something happens on the finale "unlike anything we've seen before."

We've seen people pick no one and go home. This would be unprecedented.

In any case, who do you think Ali should choose?

The Bachelorette season finale is just days away, and viewers are going nuts trying to figure out if Ali Fedotowsky picks Chris Lambton or Roberto Martinez.

Or, if you're the type to believe The Bachelorette spoilers we've teased for weeks, she rejects both, and is single to this day. What does she have to say?

“I was trying to be smart and fall in love with my heart, but use my head too,” she told People in its new cover story of starring on The Bachelorette.

“Sometimes the right thing is the hardest thing to do, and it’s definitely hard to hurt somebody. No matter what happens in the end, I hurt somebody.”

Hmm. There's that, and there's Us Weekly, which is really going out of its way to convince us she's engaged, despite offering absolutely no evidence.

Which is it - and if she is engaged, to whom? Is it true what other sources say, that Roberto proposes? If he does, are they still together now?

  • Rule Breaker
  • Secrets of the Proposal!

DIFFERENT STORIES: Ali's engaged? Some beg to differ.

It's worth noting that mere days before the final rose ceremony, no clips of her standing with either guy, or of the guy(s) walking toward her has been shown.

Was there no final rose ceremony? Was it filmed in secret to prevent the outcome from being leaked? Is ABC just bad at promoting its cash cow reality show?

Whatever the case, it's definitely odd, since Chris Lambton and Roberto Martinez are both so popular. Even fans who prefer one or the other really like both.

Host-pimp Chris Harrison says the finale is "surprising" and "unlike anything in the history of the show." "It's true from the last chance dates," he told E!

"And from those on into 'proposal day,' at the end. Everything is different than what our fans have seen in years past. People will be surprised. Whether it's good or not, Ali's happy with it and she's sticking by it. It'll be interesting."

Hmm. After seeing her recently, Chris adds:

"She looked healthier, she looked happy. She had a smile on her face and a bounce in her step again. The season took a lot out of her. It was a rough road, but she's good. She's very happy and content with what she did."

What the heck did she do - and who should she pick? Leave a comment with theories, and vote in our ongoing Chris vs. Roberto poll below ...

The Men Tell All special is always bad, but The Bachelorette's penultimate episode was even more useless this time than in seasons past. What a waste.

How can a reunion special for this season not feature Justin "Rated R" Rego or Frank Neuschaefer, two of the most notorious villains in show history?!

Instead, it was pure filler. Seriously, there is no need for this. Edit it down, guys. This is coming from devoted followers of the show, too. Think about it.

Because we love you anyway, here's THG's +/- review ...

"Justin chose not to be here tonight." - Chris. Can't imagine why. Minus 7.

Plus 4 for this tidbit: Justin was busted via Facebook after girlfriend Jessica Spillas noticed Kimberly Kerekes posting something romantic on his "wall." LOL. Side note: Become a fan of THG on Facebook - we would never cheat on you!

Frank Neuschaefer Picture

Craig, on Rated R: "His goal was to make it to the final three and sabotage everything she wanted to do for his own public benefit. It's just one of the worst things you can do to a human being." Definitely a crime against humanity. Plus 3.

Ali Fedotowsky had little to say about Justin, other than "I'm proud of the way I handled it. I didn't want to shed one tear." Minus 2 ... give us more dirt!

Kasey hopped into the hot seat. He's still krazy, but mostly just annoying, and not the person we really kared to hear konfessions from. Minus 5.

Kirk seemed to be the fan favorite, and rightfully so. Plus 3.

Kirk, on the previous week's exit by Frank Neuschaefer: "It was frustrating because Frank knew how I felt about Ali ... I came here to meet Ali with no thoughts about anybody else." Indeed. Minus 5 for not showing your face, Frank!

Without giving away any Bachelorette spoilers, the finale teaser seems to suggest, or at least leave the door open for the possibility that Ali will not pick either Chris Lambton or Roberto Martinez, which would he hella weak. Minus 10.

Not as weak as Bachelor Pad, which looks like a menagerie of the worst people in previous Bachelor and Bachelorette seasons. Eh, we'll watch it. Wash.

TOTAL: -19. SEASON: +147.

Who should Ali Fedotowsky choose next week?

 

by Free Britney at . Comments

The Bachelorette season finale is fast approaching, and there continue to be conflicting accounts as to whether star Ali Fedotowsky is engaged after it.

According to The Bachelorette spoilers we've read, she's single right now. But others, such as Us Weekly, say the finale ends with a ring on her finger.

Of course, both could be independently true.

Following the shocking 180 by Frank Neuschaefer, only Roberto Martinez and Chris Lambton are left vying for Ali's heart - with Roberto the frontrunner.

A new round of Internet reports suggest that Ali does in fact get engaged on the Bachelorette finale to Roberto, while wearing a beautiful gold gown!

Too bad this can't be independently verified.

Ali Fedotowsky, Roberto Martinez

The Bachelorette's Ali and Roberto: Are they engaged?

These same reports suggest that Roberto Martinez will propose to Ali Fedotowsky but just a few weeks after the show, Ali becomes single yet again.

Can you see it? We sort of can. Frank leaving the way he did threw her for a loop, and as infatuated as she is with Roberto, she knows it's a big risk.

We haven't listed sources here for a reason, however.

None are credible enough to warrant a mention. But the "inside" rumors about the Ali-Roberto engagement have been flying in Bachelorette forums.

Will Roberto propose, or is Chris L. ready to shock the fan community by winning her heart? If there is a proposal, do you think Ali is still engaged?

That question remains to be answered. Don't expect tonight's Men Tell All special to shed light on it, either. It's even more filler than most weeks.

Who do you think she should choose?

It might look like all fun, games, amazing dinners and contrived drama, but filming a reality show like The Bachelorette can be tough. Just ask Ali Fedotowsky.

“I was always hungry!” she tells OK! about how she gained 10 pounds on the show (not that anyone knew). “I didn’t think much of it, but everyone noticed.”

We doubt it. We've seen no Bachelorette spoilers about Ali's alleged weight gain. If anything, an extra few pounds look good on her. But it's all good either way.

How did she change her eating habits when she got back home?

“I am good during the week, and one day I pig out,” Ali says. “But I don’t cook! I am learning a little bit. I can be hard to eat healthy when you don’t cook."

"I love egg white omelets because I can actually cook the egg whites myself! I also go to the grocery store, and I will buy the ready-made grilled chicken."

"I buy 4-5 at a time, and I’ll have them with a salad - a prepared salad from a bag.” And there's your Ali Fedotowsky diet, folks. But what about exercise?

“I am not the person who will be at the gym all the time,” she says. “Usually, I do the treadmill for about 30 minutes, or I will try to do something else.”

Something that helps take out aggression at Frank Neuschaefer?

“I love kickboxing. I have a personal trainer for it. We do contact kickboxing; she holds the pads up for me. It’s such a great workout for my core."

"You can think of ex-boyfriends while you’re doing it!"

Who should she pick on the August 2 finale?

Ali Fedotowsky wants to set the record straight. Pun intended.

The Bachelorette star, who ditched Pavelka on The Bachelor to save her career at Facebook, and/or star on her own reality show, says Jake's not gay.

Rumors that Jake is gay have surfaced since his ugly split with Vienna Girardi last month, fueled by his perceived lack of interest in sex with women.

But Ali Fedotowsky shot down the rumor on Lopez Tonight, saying "Just because he wears really nice turtleneck sweaters does not mean he's gay!"

Very true, Ali. But what about refusing to kiss his fiancee?

Ali Fedotowsky and Jake Pavelka

Ali and Jake before her departure last season.

Fedotowsky said she still remembers how difficult it was to walk away from Pavelka, even though she walked away from that same job shortly after.

"It was a tough decision," she said of leaving after hometown dates. "I thought I was falling in love and wanted to stay, but I had a really good job!"

In the end, she said her Facebook bosses told her she could return to The Bachelor. "I tried to go back," she said, "but he wouldn't take me back."

It's true. We saw the phone call.

This week on The Bachelorette, Frank Neuschaefer turned the tables on her, leaving her to be with his ex despite making it into Ali's final three. That left her reeling, but she still has two great guys remaining. Which should she pick?

Frank Neuschaefer's shocking betrayal of Ali Fedotowsky, who he turned the tables on and dumped for his ex Nicole Caruso, rocked The Bachelorette this week.

But if you think Ali was effectively forced into her final two (Chris Lambton and Roberto Martinez) thanks to Frank and his surprise 180, you best think again.

"I can say with 100 percent certainty that Frank leaving did not affect my final decision," Ali Fedotowsky told E! Online after being asked about Frank's exit.

Which is not to say it didn't wreak havoc at the time.

"There were so many things that were going through my mind," she recalls. "The first being upset in general because I had really strong feelings for Frank, but also I just wondered if the whole journey was going to work out for me."

"I felt defeated. I've been hurt in the way Frank hurt me before. I had an ex that actually reminded me of Frank, who in the past left me for an ex-girlfriend."

Says the adorable 25-year-old Bachelorette star: "I know now in retrospect there's nothing wrong with me, but at the time I couldn't help but feel that way."

She says she's excited to face fans and former suitors - Frank included - on The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose special, because she'll do so in the open.

"It's the first time that - whether I'm single or I'm engaged or I'm with someone - I get to be that," says the Massachusetts native. "I've been living this secret life for the past three months, and I'm just excited to be whatever I am."

"And of course I'm going to see Frank for the first time, which is going to be interesting. I'm intrigued to see what he has to say, and how he's feeling."

So are we. But in the meantime, who should she pick?!

 

NOTE: Check out The Bachelorette spoilers here for the latest speculation on what happens on the August 2 finale. Next week is the Men Tell All special.

by Free Britney at . Comments

The shocking betrayal of Ali Fedotowsky by Frank Neuschaefer wasn't the last you'll see of him on The Bachelorette: He's coming to the After The Final Rose special.

That airs after the season finale August 2 and features interviews with Ali and the last man standing - if there is one - and usually the runner-up or runners-up.

Frank, who was one of the final three, left the show on this week's episode after confessing to Ali that he still had feelings for his ex-girlfriend, Nicole Caruso.

Don't get the wrong idea. Frank does not appear on the finale itself, and The Bachelorette spoilers we've read don't suggest any kind of dramatic return.

His After The Final Rose visit will just be to talk about what happened.

Frank and Ali

An aspiring screenwriter, Frank has been criticized for joining the show "for the wrong reasons." But sources close to Frank say it really was to fall in love.

“If he does [go on the special], it won’t be for fame but to stick up for his name,” a fellow Bachelorette contestant said. “He is a nice, level-headed guy."

While Frank’s last-minute departure may paint him as a villain to some fans, he went into the situation trying to do the right thing for all parties involved.

“I think he truly was falling in love with her, but he had unfinished thoughts about his ex," said the source. "I believe he made a mature decision to see her.”

In Frank's defense, it's also easy to see the scenario floated in some circles that he wanted to leave earlier, but was coerced into the dramatic exit by ABC.

He and Nicole are also still together, so maybe his decision was the right one? Or maybe they planned this whole stunt all along ... who are we to say?

We want to know what YOU say about who Ali should pick now:
