Ali left Jake to keep her job at Facebook, but could become the next Bachelorette

Ali Fedotowsky’s emotional decision to leave The Bachelor and Jake Pavelka may have been shocking, but it was smart, especially considering that she had to choose between a job at Facebook and an irrational bachelor who keeps Vienna around.

A Facebook spokesperson told New York Magazine, “We appreciate the personal decision to return to work was deeply difficult, but we’re glad Ali decided to come back.” Ali started working there last summer, the magazine reports, citing Ali’s Twitter feed.

But Reality Steve says Ali will be back on TV soon, as the next Bachelorette: “It hasn’t been announced yet, nothing has been signed, and nothing is officially official just yet, but I’m here to tell you Ali is going to be the next ‘Bachelorette’ unless she decides at the last minute to say no,” he wrote.

Of course, if she couldn’t stay away from her job for this season, how could she do a whole season? Steve thinks she’ll quit her job for the chance to have her own show, but despite the slightly better track record of The Bachelorette, that still seems like it would be somewhat of an irrational decision.
