It’s become the norm for the Bachelor and Bachelorettes and their other halves to stay in Los Angeles after filming is over.
Nowadays, starring on the show usually comes with a TV contract of some sort.
And Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez are no different.
The newly engaged couple stepped out last night in Hollywood at the Power Balance event and told Hollyscoop of their wedding plans, and the next steps they’re taking together.
“Maybe next summer,” Ali told us EXCLUSIVELY. “That would be exciting, we have so much to do and figure out.”
Ali told us Roberto is planning on opening up an insurance agency in San Diego, where they’re planning on moving to soon. “That is going to take a lot of time, dedication and effort. We have a lot going on,” Ali said.
But Ali told us San Diego is “perfect” for the two of them, and her fiancé agreed. “Just outside of LA,” Roberto explained. “I think she will be able to do her own thing and ill be able to open my office. I think it will work out pretty good.
Ali added, “We wanted to be somewhat near LA I guess, we know we will be up here a lot but wanted to be removed so we can have our private life and keep our home life separate from everything here. We are really happy we chose that, it’s going to be good; we are excited.”
Ali and Roberto must just be excited to settle down in one place after all the traveling they did on The Bachelorette. But we had to ask where they’re thinking for their upcoming honeymoon! “Thailand,” Ali said. “I think Thailand will be really great.”
As for the show, Ali said she knew a long time ago that she had serious feelings for Roberto. She said, “It was hard…really hard. I wanted to make sure I was making the best choice for me in the end. It was difficult to sort of go on a date with one guy and then another and sometimes I just wanted to see him. In the end what I got out of it makes it all worth-wild and I’d do it again for him.”
But one thing is for sure, she’s seen enough roses in her lifetime! “I think I’m done with roses!” Ali joked, adding to Roberto, “Except if you want to buy me some.”
They seem perfectly cute and happy together to us! But there’s still that thought in the backs of our minds that says….can this really work???
