And to think she might have stuck with Jake and missed all that Roberto.
It wasn’t an easy road. We had to break Chris’s heart…and Chris’s heart has already been broken. I’m not sure if you’re aware of this, but his mom died a year and a half ago…he moved home to be with her. She was amazing. And ABC made sure we heard about it during. every. single. episode.
It got to the point where it’s all you could think about when Chris’s alone time came up. And that’s not good. We don’t want to be thinking about anyone’s parents when they’re making out with the bachelorette.
For the first time in Bachelorette history…the decision maker chose not to sleep with both men the night before she decided which she wanted for her husband. Ali realized on her last date with Roberto, that he was the one, and rather than carry on the fiasco and let Chris down at the alter as was scripted…she chose to break the news to him in his private Tahitian hut. Alone. With the crew. We have to give it to Ali for not humiliating Chris in true ABC fashion.
Roberto was the only man left to claim Ali’s heart…and claim it he did. Roberto gave the sweetest “will you marry me” speech ever. I have to admit, this 26 year old kid made me ponder my husband’s proposal and the lack of flowery language. Although Ali’s response was a bit classier than the “shut the eff up!!” response I gave my lover.
I have also learned that Reality Steve lost his winning streak. He has successfully spoiled the finale of the past few Bachelor series and apparently he’s insisted this season that his inside source told him Ali leaves Tahiti single. All the Reality Steve readers thought she wasn’t going to choose anyone. Turns out Steve was wrong. The producers kept the conclusion a secret until the last minute. Steve updated his page before the finale ended with the true conclusion and apologized for jumping the gun on the single thing.
ABC is trying really hard to smoke out Steve’s “source”, but Steve is adamant that this is the first thing he’s been wrong about all season and that they’re looking in all the wrong places for his source. He’s also said that our beloved Chris has been offered the role as the next Bachelor and that we’re just waiting for confirmation from Chris that he’s in. So there’s that.
And here’s a rainbow from Chris’s mom.
I don’t know if you’re aware of this but his mom died a year and a half ago…he moved home to be with her. She was amazing. And ABC made sure we heard about it during. every. single. episode. She told Chris when she died to look for her in rainbows.
After Ali broke his heart…a rainbow appeared and everyone cried. So sweet.
