Ali Fedotowsky: Lasting love on 'Bachelor' isn't easy
Former 'Bachelorette' star doubts show can match life-long couples
Former "Bachelorette" Ali Fedotowsky is convinced the dating show is not a realistic way to find long-lasting love. The affable 28-year-old first tried to find her future husband in 2010, when she dated "Bachelor" Jake Pavelka. But after she decided to leave the show to keep her day job, show producers decided to bring the fan favorite back as "The Bachelorette" later that year. Although she did find love and a subsequent fiancé in Roberto Martinez, they called it quits after a year and a half of dating, leaving her single and wondering if finding a mate on television is even realistic.
She tells the blog a Drink With Chicago, "I don't think it’s a probable way of meeting someone, no. The odds are against you. Nobody goes on the show, unless they are crazy, thinking they are going to find the love of their life. No woman or man thinks, 'This will be my husband' without even meeting them. Maybe you are hopeful something will happen or hopeful for a great experience. My thing was that it was going to be a great story to tell when I’m old and have kids. So when you do actually have feelings you are surprised! Then you have to deal with all of these other women, it’s not easy." Fedotowsky has admitted she has not dated since her split from Martinez in 2011, but she is hopeful to find a beau away from the cameras.
"The Bachelor" airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
The shows, "Big Brother" and "The Biggest Loser", each have accounted for more marriages than any of these lame dating shows.
It's a game show - plain and simple. It's possible for someone to meet a good match in this manner, but highly unlikely, as has been proven by their track record.
The only reason you go on this show, like you and all the other Bachelorette's and Bachelor's is because you are all Media Whores. All looking for your 15 minutes in the lime like and even after weeks on the show you all keep trying to keep you faces everywhere hoping to "Make it Big".
Let's be real, most of the people invovled in this franchise are only there for the spotlight. They could give 2 S_ _ TS about Love. 90% are all extremely good looking, athletic people, both men and women and the only thought in any of their minds is getting on camera.
