Jake Pavelka has finally chosen who he wants to fly off into the sunset with. The Texas pilot left millions of Americans bewildered, as he wavered between the his two finalists, Vienna Girardi, 23, and Tenley Molzahn, 25. Something was missing with Tenley, and in the end the show’s coined “drama queen” reigned victorious, with a large ring on her finger. Meanwhile, Ali Fedotowsky is walking away with a prize too — her own show!
Yes, Jake proposed. But true to The Bachelor format, the couple hasn’t set a date yet and just wants to enjoy their time out of hiding and living together.
So, technically, the future of their relationship remains unknown.
Many viewers may have been surprised with Jake’s choice, as during the finale, Jake’s family didn’t connect at all with Vienna and fell in love with Tenley.
During the After the Final Rose special, host Chris Harrison surprised the couple with plane tickets to return to St. Lucia, back to the tropical, romantic island where Jake popped the question.
Chris also announced who the next Bachelorette will be: This season’s favorite “girl next door,” Ali! Ali, 25, joined Chris during After the Final Rose, beaming with the excitement over the chance to find herself a new man.
So what is she expecting?
“I want 50 guys,” Ali quipped on wanting a larger dating pool than the 25 guys normally on the show.
In a cute skit during the program, Ali was watching a clip of Jake and Vienna making out as she lay in bed eating an ice cream cone — and turned off the TV.
She did admit to have great chemistry with Jake and totally believes in finding love through the means of reality programming.
Can’t wait to watch Ali, and see what unfolds with Jake and Vienna!
