Tonight’s the night. If you’re a fan of ABC’s The Bachelorette, all of your burning questions will (hopefully) be answered during tonight’s 3 hour Bachelorette 6 season finale. So will Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky give her final rose to spicy salsa dancer Roberto Martinez, nice guy family man Chris Lambton, or….could she choose no one?
Ali narrowed the field down to Chris and Roberto two weeks ago. And while fans are clearly divided on who’s the right man for her, the promos for The Bachelorette finale episode paint a picture that Ali could end up alone.
Of course, ABC’s Bachelorette promos are notoriously misleading, so don’t feel bad for Ali just yet. She’s popped up on interviews saying she’s happy.
Team Roberto- Will Ali Pick Roberto?
Roberto fans think Ali’s Latin lovah is the perfect guy for her, and Us Magazinehas her all but married to him. The tabloid came out early on saying Ali is planning a 2011 wedding and that Roberto is the one.
But Ali has seemed insecure about Roberto all season. She even wondered out loud if she is pretty enough for him. While the sizzling chemistry is definitely there for Ali and Roberto , is it enough to last a lifetime?
Team Chris- Will Ali Pick Chris?
Chris fans are looking for any glimmer of hope that Ali will choose him. Bachelor blogger Reality Steve dissed this option back in May, when he mapped out the entire season down to the final two guys. In his blog, Reality Steve posted upfront that Ali does not choose Chris Lambton, writing, “Chris is rejected at the final rose ceremony”.
But fans noticed on Ali’s Facebook page that her mom was asking for a picture of Chris Lambton just 2 weeks ago. That would be a little odd if her daughter had indeed picked Roberto (and by the way, mom knows- Ali revealed in this week’s People Magazine that she called her mom and told her who she picked. Hey, isn’t that against the rules?).
But if for some reason Ali doesn’t pick Chris, don’t feel too bad for him. Reality Steve has said that he’s never seen such an overwhelming response over any guy on this show- so if he’s not the next Bachelor (assuming Ali doesn’t choose him) then it’s likely only because he turned it down.
The promo trailer
This week’s ABC Bachelorette trailer promises an ending like no other. It also makes it look like both Roberto and Chris get cold feet at the thought of proposing to Ali. While that in itself doesn’t mean there won’t be a happy ending, the clip shows Ali standing alone in her beautiful gold gown, with no shots of her standing with either Chris or Roberto at her final rose ceremony.
In June, Reality Steve posted, “I have a new update. Now I have absolute 100% confirmation that Ali is single. She chose no one. Don’t know who came out of the limo first, don’t know if either of the guys proposed, don’t know what she said to them. All I know is Ali did not choose either Roberto or Chris and is single.” Reality Steve’s sources have been correct all season, but is his finale prediction correct? (UPDATE: Just hours before The Bachelorette finale is set to air, Reality Steve has changed his outcome prediction).
Chris Harrison Weighs In
The Bachelor host told People that tonight’s finale “is not the usual proposal day our fans are used to seeing”. He added, “I’m proud of So what does that mean? Indeed, all of the talk of Ali’s current status has been very vague. She hasn’t been screaming from the mountain tops that she’s in love. So either ABC is editing her very well or Ali may very well be……well, not in love.
Who do you think Ali will choose? Are you on Team Roberto or Team Chris?
You can catch the 3 hour Bachelorette finale Monday August 2nd at 8:00 PM ET/PT on ABC.
