Call it trust issues following Nick Cummins’ season of The Bachelor or just intuition, but there’s been a whole lot of rumours going around about Ali Oetjen’s season finale of The Bachelorette that takes place tonight, leading us to believe it ends in disappointment.

All sources are currently pointing to the fact that Ali is now single once again after allegedly picking no one during her season finale just like The Honey Badger did in the last season of The Bachelor.

Most of this evidence has been based off the fact that both of the final two guys, Taite Radley and Todd King, have reportedly been spotted in Fiji where spin off show Bachelor In Paradise is currently being filmed.

And of course, they could only participate in this show if they were single and not currently with Ali.

But despite all of this, Kyle and Jackie O spoke with Ali this morning on the phone ahead of her final episode, and we heard straight from the horse’s mouth that this is far from the case.


EXCLUSIVE: Ali oetjen tells kyle and jackie o that she definitely picks someone in the bachelorette finale

“There’s so many rumours going around about the final two, we just saw them in Fiji together,” said Jackie. “What is that about?”

“I don’t know,” laughed Ali.

This is when she went on to tell us some exclusive information about the episode that will air tonight, saying that she absolutely chooses either Taite or Todd.

“I can definitely tell you that I do pick someone,” she continued.


So with Ali’s confirmation, this rules out the theory that she pulls a Honey Badger tonight. However, it doesn’t necessarily mean that she definitely ends up with one of these guys.

“The other rumour is that you do pick someone and then that guy says, ‘Actually I don’t want you’”, said Jackie. “Is there any truth to that?”

With this one, Ali wasn’t so open with her answer.

“That’s a theory that you’ll just have to tune in tonight to see,” she replied.

While her answer was rather coy, Ali did go on to admit that she is happy right now. Of course whether she’s happy in a relationship or just happy in her single life, we’re unsure.

“I’m beaming! My cheeks hurt at the moment,” she said.


Whether it ends in tragedy or happiness, we know that it’s going to be a seriously intense episode during the finale tonight.

Not only does the promo show Ali crouching down in absolute tears, but she told Kyle and Jackie O that it will be the most emotional episode yet.


“It’s very intense. It’s a rollercoaster ride. It’s dramatic, yes,” said Ali. “My emotions haven’t been this high for the whole season and it’s all coming to a climax really.”

Well we’ll definitely be tuning in to finally find out once and for all what happens. The Bachelorette finale airs tonight at 7:30pm on Channel 10.
