Ali Fedotowsky, born in 1984, is best known for her participation in 14th season of The Bachelor, where she vied for pilot Jake Pavelka‘s love.
The former Facebook advertising account executive famously disapproved of fellow contestant Vienna Girardi, questioning why Pavelka could fall for both of them when they seemed so different.
The fan-favorite shocked viewers when she made it to the final four and was forced to choose between returning to her job or risking it all for Pavelka. She chose to go back to work — a decision she admitted to regretting — before later changing her mind and asking to rejoin the competition. Pavelka didn’t let her come back, but Fedotowsky wasn’t too upset: she was later named the next Bachelorette.
In August 2010, Fedotowsky accepted a proposal from Bachelorette winner Roberto Martinez; the two ended their engagement in November 2011.
Fedotowsky started dating MTV host Kevin Manno in 2013. The two announced their engagement in September 2015. On July 2016, Fedotowsky gave birth to her and Manno’s baby girl: Molly Sullivan Manno. In Fedotowsky’s downtime as a mother, she runs her fashion blog, aliluvs.com.
