Williamstown's Ali Fedotowsky to be next 'Bachelorette'
WILLIAMSTOWN -- Ali Fedotowsky, the 25-year-old local woman who chose work over love in leaving ABC's reality show "The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love" this season, will have another opportunity to find a soul mate as "The Bachelorette" in the sixth season of that show, which premieres on Monday, May 24.
Fedotowsky, who made the final four of women vying to marry Jack Pavelka in "The Bachelor" but left to pursue her career as an account manager for Facebook in San Francisco, was announced as the new bachelorette on the final episode of "The Bachelor" Monday night.
"I'm looking forward to the end and the last day, when I get to be with my man," she said to "Bachelor" host Chris Harrison.
"The Bachelorette" follows a similar format to that of "The Bachelor" but in this case a woman has the opportunity to choose a husband out of a group of 25 men.
Fedotowsky, whose sexy, raspy voice and good looks made her a fan favorite in "The Bachelor," moved to California in 2006 after graduation from Clark University. She grew up in North Adams and Williamstown and is a graduate of Mount Greylock Regional High School.
