The shocking revelation sprung on Ali Fedotowsky on last night's The Bachelorette was unlike many of the contrived scenarios we've seen in recent seasons.

That's because, despite the obligatory melodrama, it appeared to be legitimate. Our girl was totally caught off guard - as was Justin when he got busted.

Below are excerpts from Ali's blog, which she writes for People each week after the ABC reality show airs. It's interesting to hear her reflect on the scandal.

As for who she picks among the five guys who received roses? She's not saying, but The Bachelorette spoilers we've compiled hint at an unexpected conclusion.

Anyway, here's what she says about last night's episode ...

Cute New Bachelorette

"So let’s address the big pink elephant in the room and get it out of the way. First off, when Jessica called me, the first thing I said to her was 'Are you okay?'"

"I felt so bad for her. I only knew Justin for weeks; he  betrayed her for years. No woman should ever let a man treat her with disrespect the way Justin did."

"The reason I didn’t look super upset on he phone is because I was not going to let him hurt me. I wouldn’t give Justin the satisfaction of thinking he could."

"I wanted to be strong - for me, for [Jessica Spillas], and for all the women and girls watching who have been betrayed by a man like this before."

"When I told Justin that he would regret this, I didn’t mean his lack of relationship with me. I meant that he would want a chance to explain himself."

"As you all saw, he didn’t do such a great job. I guess that is what happens when you’re caught in a lie. That’s all I really have to say about that."

As soon as Ali Fedotowsky declared in the opening moments that she has never felt better, you knew The Bachelorette was going to be good. But not this good.

Not even the spoilers we've known all season long could have prepared us for the unspeakable awesomeness that was the ABC show's outing of Justin Rego.

According to reports, it wasn't even faked. Rated R was legitimately busted, undone by his two-timing ways in Canada, a scandal dumped in producers' laps.

It was classic.

Obviously, you can't help but wonder what was re-edited, re-shot or flat-out contrived, but does it really matter? This is reality TV entertainment at its best.

The rest of the episode was pretty dull, but that can be forgiven, thanks to the opening sequences? THG breaks down all the action below in its +/- index ...

An Ali Fedotowsky Picture

RATED R FOR REJECTED: Ali sent Justin packing.

In Turkey, venerable Bachelorette host Chris Harrison is the bearer of bad news for Ali Fedotowsky. Plus 9, because as a pimp, you gotta protect your employees.

Ali's friend and former co-star on Jake Pavelka's season, Jessie Sudilis, NEEDS to speak to her now. Minus 3, though, 'cause it takes 50 rings for her to answer.

Somehow, Jessie knows Justin Rego's girlfriend, Jessica Spillas, who just found out Justin was cheating on HER with Kimberly Kerekes. Plus 5. Nice, Rated R.

After a loooong phone call, we learn from Jessie that Justin only went on The Bachelorette for publicity. Minus 7 because we don't buy Ali's "stunned" face.

Plus 3 for the documentary-style filming, (relatively) unedited and without music, and Plus 6 more for Chris busting out an iPhone pic of Justin and Jessica.

Minus 1 for the fact that Jessie is gona be on Bachelor Pad, and Minus 5 for the time-honored, scripted line: "I know he's not there for the right reasons."

Ali calls Justin out publicly, asking if he misses his girlfriend in Canada. Plus 10. He reacts how any upstanding guy would ... he makes a run for it! Plus 17.

Pimpin

TAKIN' CARE OF BUSINESS: Host-pimp Chris makes the call.

It only gets better as Ali gives chase and Justin escapes, only to come limping back later. He tries to talk his way out of it, but he's a really bad liar. Minus 9.

Justin hobbles off, presumably stranded in a Turkish bazaar. Plus 7. As he does so, messages he left Jessica while he was on the show are played. Plus 12.

Finally, we move on to Ty's date with Ali in a Turkish bathhouse, one of many reasons this was the most homoerotic episode of The Bachelorette ever. Even.

Ty talks about his divorce, Tenley Molzahn style, and we know this is supposed to be a powerful moment and all, but Minus 4, because it just can't compare.

On the group date, Kirk, Chris, Roberto and Craig wrestle random Turkish dudes, then each other, while covered in olive oil. See two sentences above. Plus 6.

Craig prevails, but Chris L. is the true winner with his good looks and hilarious comments. Will he get engaged to Ali (see The Bachelorette spoilers)? Plus 7.

On Craig's date, he falls so hard into the friend zone, his fate is sealed. Minus 4. Contrast that with Frank's date, in which they're all over each other. Plus 4.

Oh, Plus 5 for Ali's belly-dancing outfit. They had to throw us guys something.

TOTAL: +58. SEASON: +159.

Roses: Ty and Frank (earlier dates), Roberto, Chris and Kirk.

Out: Justin (abandoned in Istanbul) and Craig (friend zone).

It looks like one of The Bachelorette spoilers fans have been talking about since before the current season even began is about to play out tonight on ABC.

Ali Fedotowsky is, like, feeling great about the remaining seven guys she brought to Turkey ... until a SHOCKING phone call outs the biggest turkey of all.

Thanks to Jessie Sulidis, who befriended Ali on Jake Pavelka's season of The Bachelor, Ali learns that Justin Rego (Rated R) is there for the wrong reasons.

Back home, he's been dating Jessica Spillas, who spilled to Jessie that he went on the show for publicity only. Needless to say, our girl is pretty pissed.

Amazingly, ABC cameras captured all this! What are the odds!?

Without revealing anything that the clip above doesn't virtually give away, we'd say Rated R's chances of receiving a rose this week do not look so good.

Who else goes home tonight, who comprises The Bachelorette's final five, what huge scandal awaits next and who will Ali Fedotowsky choose in the end?

That you'll have to wait and see. Or just click the links above.

Upon first glance, we were taken aback when we saw photos of Ali Fedotowsky and Jennifer Love Hewitt hanging out last night.

Incredibly, both beauties attended Drag Queen Bingo at Hamburger Mary's in West Hollywood and got along like old pals, exchanging phones numbers so they could "hang out again soon," Hewitt said.

But the more one thinks about these two, the more their friendship makes perfect sense. With the obvious exception of Jake Pavelka (you're in your own stratosphere, buddy, don't worry), what other celebrities profit as much from their failed love life as Ali and Jennifer?

  • Ali Fedotowsky and Jennifer Love Hewitt
  • Ali and JLH

Ali will soon pretend to fall for a guy on The Bachelorette and then make new headlines a few months from now when they break up and she sells her tale of heartbreak to the nearest tabloid.

Hewitt, meanwhile, doesn't even have a show any longer. She remains relevant by whining about her love life.

Similarities aside, we must ask: Between Ali and JLH, who would you rather...

Looks like Justin Rego better get ready to go.

Last night's installment of The Bachelorette concluded with a preview for next week's episode that left millions of fans wondering who has a girlfriend back home.

We've known the answer for weeks now, and were going to keep the identity secret, but ABC has now confirmed it in an official press release, so here goes:

Justin "Rated R" Rego has been two-timing Ali and is there for the wrong reasons. We know ... we could probably knock you over with a feather right now.

Rumors have circulated for some time that at least one woman was, or is dating Justin Rego in Canada, and that he went on the show for publicity only.

Here's how it goes down, according to ABC:

Ali Fedotowsky and Justin Rego

RATED 'R' FOR REVEALED: Ali's been getting played ... but the truth awaits.

One of the women who became friendly with Ali Fedotowsky on The Bachelor season starring Jake Pavelka calls, bringing to light the truth about Justin.

Heart racing, Ali actually talks to Justin's sobbing girlfriend on the phone, hearing the truth about a man who told her how much he respected women.

Offended and armed with this volatile information, Ali takes matters into her own hands and has one of the most dramatic confrontations of the season.

The other men can only watch in fascination as the fireworks explode right in front of them. Will Rated R be sent packing when all is said and done?

One can only assume so. How can she not?

We'll leave it at that regarding Rated R for now, but for the latest on Ali's controversial final choice this season ... check out The Bachelorette spoilers.

The Bachelorette certainly had its moments last night, including steamy hot springs action and a 2-on-1 date in which the two most out-there suitors squared off.

But it was the preview for next week that really got fans talking after an episode that was more or less tame. Who has a girlfriend? Is this promo just a gimmick?

We know the answer to both. You'll have to see The Bachelorette spoilers for who it is, and surprisingly, it's not just editing or character assassination by ABC.

This legitimately fell in the producers' laps, catching Ali Fedotowsky completely off guard and explaining her irate reaction as depicted in next week's promo.

Anyway, on to Monday night, and Kasey's krushing farewell. Who's emerging as the favorite(s)? THG breaks down all the action below in its plus-minus index ...

Gorgeous Bachelorette

AWESOME ALI: The guys are falling harder and harder. 

Competing for a date, the guys write poems that incorporate Icelandic. Plus 4 for effort, and in hopes that someone will get Kasey into speech therapy after this.

Turns out Kirk, whose poem was picked, is harboring a deep, dark secret ... he once contracted mold poisoning. Time to make it a one-hour show, ABC. Minus 11.

Kirk gets the rose, though, after this clincher: "As long as you know where I'm coming from, I think you'll know where I'm going." Mold poisoning. Plus 3.

Upon learning he'll be squaring off with Kasey, who's distraught, Justin Rego drops at least 10 wrestling analogies, and wears a sly grin constantly. Plus 8.

Kasey says "guard and protect her heart" about half a dozen times. Minus 5, as we expected more from our new drinking game, but he mostly just whined.

Leading up to the 2-on-1, Frank tries to antagonize/pump up Kasey, while Rated R has his cast removed and puts his crutches in a public trash can. Plus 10.

First, the group date. Caving, mini-horseback riding, lagoon flirting, etc. There were some funny moments but it was too drawn out and little happened. Minus 8.

Kasey

PINNED: Rated R talks a good game, but backed it up as Kasey was kast off.

Plus 5 for the obligatory Ali Fedotowsky bikini shot, though, and Plus 2 more for glimpses of favorites Roberto Martinez and Chris Lambton shirtless for the ladies.

Hot springs + champagne = Ali Fedotowsky hammered! Plus 7, because this might be a little boring for TV, but we're so jealous. Plus 6 more for Iceland. It rules.

The 2-on-1 date begins with a helicopter ride over a volcano. Was this the volcano that blanketed Europe? Unclear, but Plus 5 for not exposing Kirk to ash poisoning.

Maybe it's because he's Canadian and at home in the cold, or that he knows Kasey is desperate and will implode, but there is a coolness about Rated R this week. Plus 3.

Clearly creeped out by the tattoo, Ali puts on a good front, gives Kasey a generic breakup speech and seemingly leaves him on an Icelandic glacier to die. Plus 19.

The more we watch, the more we think Chris Lambton should win. He seems so genuine and cool. But who does Ali choose? Minus 3 ... because we fear the worst.

Let's also talk about Frank for a second. He's emerging as a dark horse candidate, but there's just something about him we don't entirely trust yet ... so, Wash.

In a last ditch effort to salvage a rose, Chris N. says a little known fact about him is that he's "funny" and that his guilty pleasure is "Mexican food." LOL. Minus 10.

TOTAL: +15. SEASON: +101.

Roses: Justin, Kirk and Ty (earlier); Frank, Chris L., Roberto and Craig R.

Out: Kasey (earlier) and Chris N. Who? Yeah ... we don't know either.

The insanely cute star of The Bachelorette, Ali Fedotowsky, was seen carrying - what else - roses outside Hollywood's famed Koi restaurant this weekend.

Appropriate, given her coy remarks about how the season plays out.

Unlike Jake Pavelka's in-season comments (e.g. "I'm engaged!" or "I'm on cloud nine!"), Ali only vaguely talks about how she's happy with her decision.

Keeping her cards close to the vest? Possibly. Putting the best possible spin on the fact that she doesn't choose either of her final two suitors? Possibly.

The Bachelorette spoilers we've posted have plenty more on the subject if you're interested, but the Massachusetts native remains tight-lipped for now.

Ali Fedotowsky resumes her quest for love tonight on ABC ...

Who, if anyone, will Ali Fedotowsky choose on The Bachelorette?

by Free Britney at . Comments

All season long, The Bachelorette spoilers we've reported have been spot-on. So while we can't personally vouch for what follows, bear that fact in mind.

Since before Ali Fedotowsky even began her quest for love, we've known the identity of her final two suitors this season - and the one she does not pick.

What's eluded THG, and even the soothsayer of The Bachelorette spoilers, Reality Steve, up to this point is the end result. What happens on August 2?

Is Ali engaged? If so, to whom? Are they dating? Is she still single?

The lowdown was always that one of the finalists, whose name THG has withheld here for those of you who like to remain in suspense, was eliminated.

The other finalist's fate was unclear. Either Ali Fedotowsky chose him and they’re engaged, she chose him and they’re just dating, or she chose neither.

That question has now been answered with 99.9 percent certainty.

Ali Looking On

Ali Fedotowsky's final decision has been debated for weeks.

There is no gimmicky ending with someone returning, just the two men from which Ali must make a heart-wrenching choice - one likely to leave many fans disappointed.

WARNING: Do not read on if you do not want to read SERIOUS spoilers for the end of this season. This isn't vague, Us Weekly-style nonsense, it's a dead giveaway.

On the season finale of The Bachelorette, Ali Fedotowsky chooses ...

Ali Fedotowsky decided to star on The Bachelorette to find true love, and in pursuit of her dream man, the 25-year-old kept her options as open as possible.

“She likes guys who can keep her interested and teach her things. She loves learning new things,” explains her mother, Beth Johnson, to In Touch Weekly.

“It doesn’t matter” to Ali what her dates look like. In fact, “Ali has dated guys who are unattractive in other people’s eyes. It what's inside that matters!”

So sweet ... but might The Bachelorette producers have taken advantage of Ali's sweet nature and open-mindedness by contriving drama at her expense?

No effing way.

  • Ali Betrayed!
  • Fearless Fedotowsky

Who would cheat on, or betray sweet Ali? Mike Fleiss, that's who.

While the info revealed by ITW basically sums up The Bachelorette spoilers we already know, thanks to venerable sleuth Reality Steve, it's still shocking.

We've had complaints about this before, so we'll continue after the jump. If you wish to remain in the dark about scandalous events to come, stop here!

What might have been a tame episode of The Bachelorette soon became surprisingly memorable as Kasey made a complete fool of himself - many times over.

He certainly didn't take any of the conventional routes - drunkenness, jackassery, climbing mountains Rated R style - either. No, Kasey was a unique kalamity.

How did Ali Fedotowsky respond to his increasingly odd overtures? Who received roses at the end of the night and which two guys' dreams were krushed forever?

THG breaks down all the action below in its plus-minus index ...

Chris Harrison informs the guys they are headed around the world, starting in New York City. The Bachelorette's budget must really be increasing lately. Plus 4.

Ali Fedotowsky gets an InStyle makeover. Minus only 1, because while complete cross-promotional filler, this did provide us gorgeous shots of Ali Fedotowsky.

Kasey gets a one-on-one date and talks to the cameras about how Ali is a beautiful butterfly, "ready and open for love." It only gets weirder from there. Minus 2.

Kasey Kiss

KRAZY TRAIN: Kasey puts the unintentionally hilarious moves on Ali. 

Minus 37, one point for each time he said he's there to "protect and guard" her heart. 1. Who even talks like that? 2. This will make a fun drinking game next week!

During their private date in the museum, Kasey gets all intense about their love and continues the most god-awful singing imaginable. Plus 10 for Ali's stunned look.

Plus 13 more for Ali calling him out on this crap. She says he's not himself. Whether that's true or not, he's not impressing her and at least she didn't placate him.

How can he not get a rose and still stick around for the rose ceremony, though? Isn't the whole point that it's make or break? Minus 4 for making up rules on the fly.

Roberto, Jesse, Craig, Kirk, Jonathan, Frank and Ty head to Times Square for a VIP Broadway experience and are forced to pretend they really like theater. Plus 8.

Lauding Roberto's courage and truth, the producer chooses him for a date with Ali, then says they're going to be in The Lion King. Minus 5. A nice dinner would do.

Plus 11 for the gratuitous, half-nude shots of Ali and Roberto Martinez, especially since the other suckers have to sit and watch a play and Roberto workin' it.

In a driving rain, Ali reassures Frank about her feelings for him and they make out. Frank says he wants whatever she has. Barf, but Minus only 3 since we like Frank.

A-Fed Pic

BIG LEAGUER: Roberto rose to the occasion on Broadway's biggest stage.

Jonathan the Weatherman freaks out more and more with each letdown. It's like a train wreck in slow motion, only the train has had 10 cups of coffee. Minus 6.

Weatherman has a serious cow when Kirk swoops in and escorts an under the weather Ali to bed. Plus 5 for Kirk seizing the moment and Plus 2 for Jonathan tweaking.

Sick Ali invites Chris Lambton to her suite instead of going out, which is even better for getting to know each other. Plus 9 for Chris L. making lemonade (figuratively).

The producers are overplaying the situation with his mom a bit to make Chris look all sympathetic, but it is important, and he does seem genuine and sweet, so Wash.

The guys notice Kasey is "missing." That's because he's at a tattoo parlor. Getting a shield guarding a heart. Plus 17, 'cause that is the lamest, most insane move ever.

Kasey tells his competitors the bandage on his wrist is from a burn. Justin Rego of all people is sure he's lying (see Bachelorette spoilers for definition of irony). Plus 9.

Finally kalled out, Kasey reveals his tattoo, which he says is courageous or something. Frank counters that it "doesn't prove anything except that you're nuts." Plus 7.

TOTAL: +36. SEASON: +86.

Roses: Chris L. (earlier); Kirk, Frank, Craig, Chris N., Roberto, Justin, Ty and Kasey.

Out: Jesse and Jonathan. Poor Weatherman.
