It’s that time of the year again, when offices all around Australia are heavily invested in The Bachelorette office sweep.
As much as judging a fresh set of Bachie boys and a good sweep is important, how much do you know about this years leading lady, Ali Oetjen?
Ali is one of the Bachie OGs, first appearing on Season 1 of The Bachelor in a bid to win Tim Robards’ heart in 2013. After awkwardly trying to kiss Tim on the first night to eventually receiving the first smooch in Aussie Bachelor history, Ali was definitely a memorable contestant.
Unfortunately, shattering her knee on a date didn't get Ali any sympathy votes. She finished in third place and left broken-hearted despite confessing her deep love for Tim.
Before returning back to reality TV just last year on Bachelor In Paradise, Ali had some big life twists and turns.
Here is what you might not know about this years blonde beauty.
She was once engaged
After heartbreak with Tim Robards, Ali found new love and got engaged to boyfriend, David Waldeck in 2015. After not one but TWO engagement rings, the fairy tail ending that Ali was hoping for unfortunately wasn’t meant to be with the couple splitting at some stage during 2016.
Poor Ali, we hope she had some great girlfriends to have a BB session with. A body and hair mask using the BB Natural Tanning Oil on the couch with your besties is the ultimate fix for all of life's tough moments.
After leaving her career in Real Estate and dabbling in some radio hosting, Ali found her true passion as a healthy lifestyle motivator. The Instagram influencer used her passion and knowledge about health and fitness to launch a website and even released her own E-book, an 8-week healthy lifestyle program. If you’re following Ali on Instagram, you would know she is constantly sharing her favourite healthy recipes and fitness tips.
There is no denying the former beauty pageant contestant is gorgeous, you don’t get leading lady status for no reason. This babe embodies everything we love at BB with beauty from the inside out and a golden tan that lasts all year around.
You can get Ali’s bronzed glow with our range of Tanning Oils all available with SPF and without. If sunless tanning is more your vibe, the Bronzing Lotion is the ultimate hint of tint while smoothing the skin. Filled with organic caramel extract to provide an instant bronze glow that will wash off in the shower.
Ali’s search for love on reality TV has come full circle with appearances on both The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise just last year in 2017. Despite following then-boyfriend Grant Kemp all the way to LA, the couple broke up before Ali decided to take what is hopefully her final turn (rose) at the Bachelor franchise.
Luckily for us and her, Ali has hinted to a happy end to her season. After what happened on The Bachelor with Honey Badger Nick Cummins, we’re really hoping she finds the Mr Right she has been searching for.
If all else fails, at least we get to keep watching Osher Gunsberg every week. No complaints here, BB babes.
