Many fans of the show want to know the answer to the question..”What is Ali Fedotowsky up to these days?”
The answer seems to be a simple one. Ali has landed a new job with the FOX television affiliate in San Diego as a correspondent. While it may not seem she has journalism on her resume, she certainly has a lengthy stint on television considering her background on both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. Let’s just say she is quite used to having cameras follow her around!
According to this story in US Weekly, the 25 year old former Bachelorette is now employed at FOX 5 San Diego. That will inevitably lead to many jokes in blogs and articles about Ali saying the old Will Ferrell “AnchorMan” line, “You stay classy, San Diego!” But more importantly for Ali, it’s a chance to kick off a fresh new career in television after leaving her job at Facebook to do The Bachelorette. Fedotowsky, according to the US Weekly story, tweeted that she would be joining the FOX 5 San Diego team on Monday, September 13, 2010.
A quick examination of the actual FOX 5 San Diego website revealed no details about former Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky joining the team. That could mean the FOX 5 promotions gurus are holding off until Ali arrives to do a series of shoots. Or maybe the the station is oblivious to having a nationally recognized face joining the team? Not likely.
Most likely, Ali might have to be in house before we ever see a series of promos on their website. But for whatever reason, not a single story on Ali joining the FOX 5 San Diego team could be found on their official website as of September 12. Maybe it’s some not so top secret type stuff? Maybe FOX 5 San Diego has on-air television spots we can not see unless we live in the San Diego viewing area? Whatever the case, it seems like promos upon promos should be airing with such a recognizable addition starting her television stint this week. Maybe FOX 5 wants to keep Ali under wraps until she debuts on Monday? Maybe out of respect for the actual journalists who have devoted their career to the trade, FOX 5 is downplaying the addition of Ali? There will no doubt be some inside jealousy because of Ali landing a job many others took years to land–all because she was on The Bachelorette.
Only time will tell if Ali winds up on billboards and what her actual television stint becomes. It would seem more than likely that Ali will be an entertainment type reporter. It doesn’t seem likely Ali would ever cover hard news-but who really knows? The gig though could lead to Ali landing in the same capacity on a national syndicated show like some of the other Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants. Ali Fedotowsky has a strong following so someone other than the local FOX affiliate in San Diego might be willing to capitalize on that in the near future. If Ali does well, expect to see way more of her in the future.
The next big question for Bachelorette fans..”Are Ali and Roberto still together?”
The apparent answer to that question is yes. Ali relocated from San Francisco(where she worked at Facebook) to San Diego to be with Roberto Martinez. The two are now living together in their post Bachelorette lives.
It’s still too early for Ali and Roberto break up rumors, isn’t it? Perhaps the happy couple will steer clear of the disaster relationship ending that Jake and Vienna suffered. Ali and Roberto may break up-but my guess is it won’t get that public and it won’t be that nasty if it happens. My guess is that Ali and Roberto will last as long as the two vow to make it work-which is like stating the complete obvious. For now, Bachelorette fans will be happy to know that Ali and Roberto are still together and doing quite well! Could the new job for Ali take away time from the relationship and lead to a break up? Will the rumors begin while Ali is away doing her job? Only time will tell if this couple makes it last. It would be nice for Bachelorette fans to finally see another happy ending. There haven’t been many and it seems these two have a strong chance to survive for great lengths.
