Ali “heartbroken” and “defeated” after being dumped by Frank

Ali Fedotowsky was dumped by Frank Neuschaefer during last night’s episode of The Bachelorette 6, because he decided he was falling back in love with his ex-girlfriend while falling in love with Ali, or some such nonsense that allowed the show’s cameras to follow him back to his ex-girlfriend’s home to tell her the news.

Ali, who left Jake for her job at Facebook, was devastated about being left for an actual human being, and wrote on People.com, “I was heartbroken. After Frank left, I felt defeated. Don’t get me wrong, I was very well aware that I had two unbelievable men left, but I couldn’t help but think that my journey as the Bachelorette wasn’t going to work out.”

Last night’s episode was the penultimate episode, since next week is the reunion with the men she’s rejected and/or have rejected her.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
