Who did Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky choose?

Last night's season finale of "The Bachelorette" saw a twist that really wasn't, a much-hyped interview that didn't happen and, most importantly, Ali Fedotowsky making a life-altering decision.

Rather than have both landscaper Chris Lambton and insurance agent Roberto Martinez go through the whole process of choosing a ring, putting on itchy suits and using shoehorns for the first time in their lives, Ali opted to give one suitor the boot the day before the proposal. That suitor was Chris, who found out about Ali's decision as he prepared to escort her on their final date.

Chris was disappointed with Ali's decision, but appreciated the fact that she didn't want to put him through the whole proposal ceremony. Chris later told Chris Harrison on the "After the Final Rose" special that he would go through the journey again to find the girl of his dreams. Do we have the next "Bachelor" on deck here?

We now go back to Roberto, who's getting ready for the big moment. He has a ring picked out, a nice outfit to wear and unfortunate lip sweat that we hope will go away soon. After climbing what appears to be a very long stairway, Roberto finally comes face-to-face with Ali.

Roberto tells her that he didn't know what to expect on this journey but, in the end, he wants to be the man for her. He drops down on one knee and proposes marriage. Ali accepts, kissing Roberto and his sweat.

The scene changes from Tahiti to some studio in southern California, where Ali and Roberto talk about their lives to Chris Harrison.  Roberto said he knew he would be proposing to Ali by the second or third rose ceremony, while Ali said she felt they would be together "a lot throughout."  No, I'm not sure what that means either.

Chris Harrison also complimented Ali for "breaking the rules" throughout the show. There are rules to this show? I thought it was a lot like "Mad Libs" - you just made it up as you went along.

The happy couple said they were now sharing an apartment in San Diego, where Roberto has set up his own insurance office and Ali appears to be looking for work. Both said they didn't want to rush into a wedding, as they just want life to return to normal.

Before leaving the studio, Ali and Roberto were given a helicopter ride to California's Catalina Island. Surprisingly, Chris Harrison never asked if Ali was over her fear of flying, given all her plane and helicopter trips in recent months.

If you were wondering what Frank, the suitor who walked away from the show due to feelings he had for an ex-girlfriend, had to say during the "Final Rose" special, stop wondering. Chris Harrison announced that Frank pulled out of the special "at the last minute."  Given how villainous contestants have been treated in the past on such specials, it's not hard to understand Frank's decision to skip the show.

Next week, "Bachelor Pad" premieres.

What did you think of last night's "Bachelorette" finale?

    Why not add work, cook, clean, and kids and see what happens. You know like real life. Live off your income not the TV network. Personally it's like everything you based your decision to get married on is a lie. Gee could they be why most of the couples split.

    Ali and Roberto are a beautiful couple. I loved this season. Ali is awesome – gorgeous, smart, sensitive and Roberto is a loving, gorgeous man. I wish them the best as they start their journey together. Yes, this is a crazy way to meet people but it does work. I loved all of the locations they traveled to and how everything was handled. Blessings to both of you.

    Can somene please answer this question for me???? If Ali is so caring and sensitive and loving and understanding and bla bla bla, why would she need to go on a TV show to find a guy? Good guys are always on the search for these qualities. Seems to me there might be more to these people on these shows. It's seems like a person sith such great features wouldn't have a problem with finding someone??????? Love the perverts on here you crack me up....

    I have not wasted one minute watching this horrible show. Ally may seem like a very girl, but when the cameras are off, she reportedly gets very needy. Roberto really does seem like a nice guy, but Chris would be a great next Bachelor. The finale was not as dramatic as advertised, and I would have fallen asleep during the proposal at the end when Roberto was sweating after having to navigate what seemed like hundreds of steps to reach to top of the mountain where beautiful Ally was waiting for him.

    I'll have to admit I was not a big Ali fan during the Bachelor. I thought she behaved horribly and did not leave a good impression with me, at least. But on this season's Bachelorette, I was surprised at how insightful and careful she was being and her choices were right on. But she chose the right guy in the end. When I saw him step out of the car and the sparks they generated when they first saw each other, I had a gut feeling he would be the one. She handled herself graciously and treated the guys kindly - even when certain guys were not behaving as they should have. She gave the jerks a fair chance beyond what most women would have done. And when she graciously let a couple of very nice guys go, including Chris, she did not wait until the last minute to do it. Good for you Ali! May you and Roberto have a long and happy life together.

      I don't think Roberto ever said what motivated him to come on the show...I watched the show every week and waited for him to explain this; for example, sometimes people will say that a friend nudged them into it, or they'll say they're ready to "find love", or they'll say they found out that "so and so" was going to be the Bachelor or Bachelorette and wanted their shot with them...lots of different reasons. No one ever says, "I decided to go on the show to boost my career..." which is a big reason why many do it. Roberto never explained his reasons. So I wonder about that, too. He's so young and all-around great so why?? One thing I noticed is that he doesn't seem to be aware of how good-looking he is–he always looks down and gets really embarrassed whenever Ali points it out–PLUS he's an insurance salesman!? That struck me as odd...That's a really boring, low-key, could-be-anyone-doing-it job (sorry if I've offended any insurance agents out there, but it's like accountant...like that). It just makes me think he has no idea how great he is...so maybe he actually wanted to go on the show because he didn't feel great enough to find someone wonderful on his own? I don't get it...

      I think Roberto made a good point on the "After the Rose" show...He said that people meet in all kinds of situations...work, at a bar, on the Internet, by being introduced by friends...and he and Ali just happened to meet on a TV show. This could "work" and be real just as much as in any other way of meeting. Time will tell if they are right for each other out in the "real world", but so far, they have a ton in common, are wildly attracted to one another...it could work as much, or as well, as any other couple. I observed Trista and Ryan when Ryan was in a Triathlon for which I was volunteering. They met on this show, too. They were so natural together...just normal, happy, cool people. So this could work out, too, even though Ali and Roberto met on the show. Their odds are just about as good as any other couple who meet anywhere else.

    Ali was the best bachorette thus far. Besides being naturally beautiful, she was adventrous, playful She showed herself to be a woman with class and intelligence. She told it like it is and with respect.She challenged and matched with every one of those men on the single dates and group in whatever they did. They did a little of everything and Ali did it all sing, dance, sports, etc.Unlike all the other shows the woman were interested in drinking, getting dressed up and making themselves over. Ali and Roberto make a wonderful couple. They both went out on the limb and did everhting together and had so much fun on the show. Both have great careers and will help tremendously with each other. I have to say thie seasons segment was one of the best.

      I totally agree...The thing that was special about Ali was not only that she was beautiful and could wear all of show's clothes well, but that as a person she was really outgoing, fun, not afraid to have her hair be all messed up...like a pretty tomboy. I think this is what a LOT of men really want in their relationships–a beautiful friend that they can be with romantically, but also do wild and crazy things with. Did you see Ali on the jet ski?! MANY women wouldn't get near one let alone ride all crazy on one with a guy on the back! LOL! And how great for her to be heartbroken by Jake–only to discover that Jake is really a total scary loser–and to wind up with someone not only beautiful (HOT!!), but genuine and caring and fun like her. From what we are allowed to see, they seem like a great couple, and what gorgeous children they would have! It's good that Frank showed his true colors before Ali went any further with him–I'm glad he did that so she could be free to be with someone who really wanted to be with her.

    He seems like a decent guy. She's no catch - just ask her co-workers at Facebook. He'll find out what she's really like and find a nice girl someday.

      You asked her coworkers on Facebook? Isn't that a little psycho? I assume they all used their real names, too, right? or were they anonymous cowards who wanted to slam someone? But seriously, that's kinda psycho. Get some therapy.

      iateurcookie–I think Steven said "at Facebook". That's the company where Ali worked in San Francisco before quitting to be on The Bachelorette. Maybe Steven works there or knows people who worked there with her...Perhaps Steven will elaborate. I do know Ali was a lot more gossipy and back-stabby towards other women while on the Bachelor–when she was part of a pack of them–than she was as the one-and-only Bachelorette. She was kinder to guys than to women. Perhaps that's the story...

    Roberto is a troll. You talk about Ali's kissing? This guy never wore a tie correctly. Everyone else who wore a tie, wore it with class, this guy alway shad it in but top button opened and naging loose. Like he couldn't try to look nice for a classy girl. Loved Roberots unibrow or thsoe catelillars taped to his eyebrows. Chris ??? Great guy but has girl issues.
    Ali woul dhave been always comapred to him to his mother. He wants to be motehered. I feel his family would always come first, his Mothers ghost second and she would be a permanent third. Chris has got some heavy baggage.

    Chris is hot. He's lucky I'm as old as I am, lol!!

    Now, let's really turn this thing on it's ear....and have a Bachelor of color darker than ivory. Doesn't have to be any particular nationality. Or, let's have a Boomer Bachelor and Boomerettes...after all, the 40+ crowd are still the majority consumer demographic in America. Just some ideas for ABC.

    And I'm convinced Reality Steve works for ABC. No way I'm gonna believe otherwise. This season clinched that opinion for me. He played right along (or was played right along).

    Best wishes to Ali and Roberto!

    This was the best season since Trista – Ali and Roberto are so adorable together! They had the best connection the whole show. And they both seem so nice that I really hope they work out. As for someone saying why isn't he taken yet – he's only 26 and was pursuing baseball for awhile, give him a break. He is a keeper!

    You can train a person (Ali) to kiss well. However, a personality you're stuck with. Lol...basing a relationship on how a person kisses helps to explain why so many are single their whole life. Maybe they should consider that they're the ones that cannot kiss?!

      And people are stupid to assume she's a poor kisser because they've seen an hour (less than, with commercials) of events weekly. Frankly, I wouldn't want to see some loose-lipped, drooler slobbering all over and exploring someone else's mouth with her tongue every week, either. Silly people.

    You guys are so lame with your comments about Ali's kissing abilities. Did you ever think that Ali might not have wanted to suck face with any of the guys on National Television in front of her family, GOD and everyone? I respect her for leaving the guys wanting more for later in private. As far as the finale, it was the best ever. I cried and jumped around the room and cheered. Romance and some fairytales do come true. What a beautiful couple. She looked so beautifual in that yellow gown. I really hope nothing but the best of luck for Ali and Roberto. I am sure they will last just like Trista and Ryan and will be my favorites for seasons to come.

    The best thing she did was let Chris go. That was good. She didn't make him go through all of that. But, you have to wonder why isn't Roberta taken already. If he is so great??. and why didn't his mom talk to her. Only the dad did? and Frank still show he was a jerk. he didn't even come on there.

    My favorite part of the show is the final rose. One of the dorks shows up with his ring, certain that he will be proposing. Instead, he has his heart ripped out, suffers emotional devastation and is publicly humiliated. Ali cheated me out of that by urinating on Chris the day before. If she didn't have the guts to do the whole show she should have passed.

    Ali fell for the fireworks that is Roberto. She was in total infatuation with him from the beginning. Chris was a little slow but you know he would stay with Ali forever if they had gotten engaged/married. It seemed like he fit in with the family so well. He still seemed broken up about Ali. Gotta say that rainbow had me crying. Alll I can say is she dodged a bullet with Jake from the previous show and I hope she's happy.

    Love Ali and Roberto together. The two of them seem truly in love with each other and have since pretty much the beginning of the show. He became her confidant early on. I hope these two actually do the walk down the aisle and make it last. Another Trista and Ryan type scenario. Finally!!!! As for Frank, he's a big wuss. Not a surprise he wouldn't show up. Had he said no when he was actually asked, would be one thing. Instead, he backed out at the last minute which is very a-typical of his back and forth personality. One second he's "all on board", the next he's finding an excuse to run. Best of luck to his girlfriend cause with someone as easy to cut and run as Frank seems to be, she's going to need it. To Ali and Roberto.............CONGRATUALATIONS. Wish you both happiness and success in the relationship and hopefully, the pitfalls of fame that have happened to those before you will not destroy what the two of you are building.

      Not to side with Claire, but posting a comment about the show is a LOT different than actually spending time to watch the show. The comment takes an average of 30 seconds or so. The show, on the other hand, goes on for a lot longer.

      I think Chris is great and would be a wonderful husband to someone he really loved and who loved him...but I can't see him as the next Bachelor. He seems too genuine and too shy to have to mess around with a bunch of sleezy types and liars for months on end. I mean there is so much CRAP to have to sift through on this show in order to find "the one". He doesn't seem like the type to play all of the games you have to play. If nothing else, it could ruin his good character to have to be the Bachelor for 3 months. It's one thing to be able to just "be yourself", and he did say when he decided to be one of 25 guys, he was just going to be himself and see how that played out, but I don't think you can be that laid back and "yourself" and be the one running this show–the sole focus of it with 25 crazy women trying to win your love at all costs. Don't see it.

    • Terrible Show

      I completely agree. My fiance watches the show and every season she tells me how emotional she gets and how she is just sincerely happy for that person and its all bull....of course you are going to love someone when you go on these unbelievable dates to Tahiti, Hawaii, Mexico, etc. who wouldn't? Its not REAL love! Real love is when you can go through crap together that people have trouble going through alone and you come out together on the other side a better, stronger couple. I have already told my soon to be wife that I refuse to allow our kids to watch the reality junk that is on TV. Did you ever wonder why kids today think that dating around is sleeping and making out with every guy/girl you meet....well the answer is what they show on TV and in the movies. I was lucky to have parents who knew that children's minds are like sponges, they absorb everything and if you hear stuff on tv and see stuff then you are going to think it is REAL and that it is okay. Kids do not have the capacity to realize that stuff on TV is not real and that there are no consequences. Did anyone ever WONDER WHY NONE OF THESE COUPLES EVER MAKE IT???

      We cannot expect society to change for the better with the crap they show on television. We are just destroying our capacity to be logical, problem solve, and understand. One thing I will always make sure is that my kids are outside playing, doing homework, or into sports with limited amounts of television. I will not let my children fall to the wayside of the rest of society.

    Did anyone else notice that Ali appears to be a terrible kisser? To my knowledge, girls use a guy's ability to kiss good as a very important gauge of their lovability.
