Ali On Her Final ‘Bachelorette’ Pick: ‘I Am In The Best Place’

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- “Bachelorette” Ali Fedotowsky is very satisfied with the final result of her search for a man on the ABC reality show, but fans will have to wait for the season finale to find out who it is.
“I can tell you that I am in the best place. I’m so happy so you’ll have to see why that is,” Ali told Access Hollywood of how her “Bachelorette” love search worked out.
Before that reveal, Ali reunites with her harem of booted hotties on Monday night’s “The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All.”
Two controversial Bachelors chose not to attend – Justin, who, as it turned out, had a girlfriend or two, and Frank, who had a change of heart about his ex.
As for Justin’s absence, Ali said she didn’t mind him being gone, having said everything she wanted to say to him already.
“I feel like I got everything out that I had to say and he sort of couldn’t explain himself to me,” Ali said of their trip to Turkey. “I feel like when you’re caught in a lie, that’s sometimes what happens.”
Frank, however, is someone Ali wouldn’t mind seeing again.
“I think it would be good to see him eventually,” she said of the man who revealed his betrayal to Ali in Tahiti as one of her final three suitors. “I also want him to be happy. I think he’s a good person and you know, if he went home to be with this girl that he thinks he’s gonna marry I hope he’s still with her and I hope that’s true.”
Although Justin and Frank are out, Kasey the crooner more than makes up for their absence – hitting the reunion in song.
Kasey, of course, was the one who also got creepy, when he tattooed his vow to “guard and protect” Ali’s heart on his arm.
“I want to find the woman that I could actually physically say, ‘I want to guard and protect your heart forever and I want them to reciprocate that,’” Kasey previously told Access.
Seeing the men again, however, wasn’t hard for Ali.
“Not nervous at all,” she said of the reunion. “It’s more like, these guys are my friends, these are the guys that I’ve spent so much time with that I miss. We developed a sort of family, as weird as it sounds because they’re all vying for my love. I guess that’s sort of what happens.”
And then there was Kirk, whose heart is still singing after being booted from the show following the hometown dates. He hinted to Access Hollywood that he may know something that the audience doesn’t – that one of Ali’s final two men may not be the one handing out roses next season.
“I feel like Chris probably has too many awkward kisses to be the next ‘Bachelor,’” Kirk laughed. “I’m saying that it was a little awkward for me to watch. I feel like a whole season of that would be terrifying.”
