LINDSEY'S TAKE: 'Bachelorette' Ali Made The Right Choice: She And Roberto Are No Jake & Vienna!

Tue, August 3, 2010 9:42am EST by 6 Comments

Roberto is the right guy for Ali — I’m sure of it! But will they last longer than ‘Bachelor’ Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi?

I am totally convinced: Ali Fedotowsky picked the right guy on the season finale of The Bachelorette on Aug. 2 — Roberto Martinez is the man of her dreams! And, even though Chris Lambton was an amazing choice, Ali’s heart belonged to Roberto from the very beginning!

Unlike what I thought about Jake and Vienna, namely that they were doomed to fail, I think this is at least one couple that will last.

There’s no question that Ali and Roberto are completely in love! From the minute she saw him get of the limousine, it was love at first sight! “He’s unbelievably handsome and he has so much respect for others and so much respect for me and I couldn’t have gotten a better man,” Ali gushed on the After The Final Rose special edition to host Chris Harrison.

Ali isn’t the only one who seems to be deeply in love. “The first time that I really realized that I could be with her was at the second or third rose ceremony where I couldn’t picture my life without he.” said Roberto. “I tell her all the time I can’t believe we met on a TV show …  I love this woman with all my heart!” Aww!

During the final episode, Ali had a tough decision to make — which man to spend the rest of her life with! When she chose Roberto, Ali had to let go my number one pick from the beginning. But, I have to say, the way Ali said goodbye was the most appropriate and caring way possible.

Instead of waiting until the final rose ceremony to tell Chris how she felt, she let him go the day before. This took a lot of respect. “I’m in love with someone else,” Ali told Chris, saving him the emabarassment of showing up the next day and proposing to her. That took guts!

But, for Ali, this was the ultimate decision. I have never seen her as happy as she was when Roberto got down on one knee.

And, unlike Jake Pavelka and ex-fiancee Vienna Girardi, I have to say that Ali & Roberto have a good fighting chance to make their relationship last because it seems real. From the way he was touching her and the way she looked into his eyes and held onto him at the After The Final Rose filming, it’s easy to see that their feelings for each other are sincere.

So, even though Ali said goodbye to my favorite guy from this season, I think she made the right decision. Roberto is the man for her, not question about it!

BFFs — do you agree or do you think that Ali should have picked Chris? Vote below!

I think Ali made a good choice otherwise Chris was going to be hurt at the end. Ali is too Ambitious. Roberto and Ali I hope they can respect each other becos they both still young.
I love Chris though matured and calm

Uhmmm, did anyone actually PAY ATTENTION to the guys she had to choose from? It was like the bottom of the bargain bin at an outlet store! LOSERS GALORE!

The guys she liked were LIARS and she was left with 2 dweebs. She HAD to choose one, I guess.

Their “engagement” will fall apart within weeks, I’m sure.

This girl needs to go get a life and stop worrying about a man.
