Ali named as next Bachelorette
Former Bachelor contestant takes her third shot at finding love in Reality TV.
Former Bachelor contestant Ali Oetjen has been named as the next Bachelorette for TEN, in her third attempt to find love in Reality TV.
The 32-year-old South Australian first appeared when competing for the affections of Tim Robards, but was rejected in the penultimate rose ceremony.
She returned in Bachelor In Paradise but despite heading to the US to be with Grant Kemp, TEN says the distance proved to be a hurdle.
TEN Chief Content Officer, Beverly McGarvey, said: “We have all been captivated by Ali’s search for love and are delighted to welcome her back in the new season of The Bachelorette Australia.
“Warm, down-to-earth and honest, Ali is Australia’s sweetheart and we can’t wait to see the country’s most eligible bachelors compete to win her heart.”
Ali said: “I have had my heart broken, but I’ve picked myself up and I’m ready to put my heart on the line again. I’m absolutely thrilled to start this new adventure.
“I’m looking for a man who is light-hearted and kind, a genuine and down-to-earth man who will sweep me off my feet and love me for me. And I’m looking forward to offering that love back to him in return.”
