During her appearance on Ellen this morning, Bachelor contestant Ali Fedotowsky told Ellen Degeneres that she was "pretty shocked" when Jake rejected her offer to return to the show the week after she chose her job over him:
"I thought if this is love and he really cares about me, then he is going to come and find me. He's a pilot. Like, fly to get me. That would be amazing...I thought we had something really great."
But it sounds like Ali's already on the road to recovery from her broken heart. Not only did she wish Jake luck with whomever he chooses, but she responded with a smile to Ellen's question of whether she'd consider becoming ABC's next Bachelorette, saying, "That would be so nice. I would be so flattered."
Ellen asked Ali which remaining woman she would choose for Bachelor Jake, and Ali said that while she hoped Jake would choose her "good friend" Tenley, "the connection that Vienna and Jake have... I didn't realize that was happening behind the scenes or when I wasn't around. They look like a good couple. I actually think it could be Vienna."
"I want it to be Tenley," Ali reiterated, saying the two became so close while filming the show that she would be in Tenley's wedding party if she were to marry Jake, even though "it would be a little awkward."
Well, maybe more than a little. But not as awkward as the prospect of being Vienna's bridesmaid!
