'The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons - Ever!': Ali secretly dated a Season 6 contestant after split with Roberto
While everybody knew about Ali and Roberto's split, what many of us didn't know was what happened after the split
The latest episode of 'The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons- Ever!' featured none other than the iconic Season 6 Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky. The three-hour show gave us a sneak peek into some of the highlights from the show while catching up with a few of the contestants.
Ali's season also happened to be the one when two of her suitors decided to leave the show midway to rekindle their relationship with an ex-girlfriend. The two suitors were Frank Neuschaefer and Justin. While Justin's abrupt decision to leave the show left Ali fuming with rage because Justin didn't exactly split with his girlfriend, Frank's departure left Ali broken-hearted.
Time and again Ali expressed how Frank was her dream guy and had every quality she was looking for in her partner, but she still couldn't make him stay. She wished Frank luck and moved on with Roberto Martinez from the show. The couple got engaged during the season's finale episode.
Unfortunately, things didn't work out for the couple, as they split a year and a half later. While everybody knew about Ali and Roberto's split, what many of us didn't know was what happened after the split and before she eventually married her current husband Kevin Manno. In the brief period before meeting her future husband, Ali happened to run into Frank. Her feelings for him resurfaced, and the duo reportedly went on a couple of secret dates.
In an interview with host Chris Harrison, Ali revealed that she went on a few dates with Frank, although they never officially dated. But they both eventually decided to go their separate ways because, according to the reality star, they both were very different people. But before you assume that Ali has bitter feelings towards Frank or things didn't well between the duo, the former bachelorette confirmed that everything is fine between the duo. She revealed that Frank is still a close friend and they stay in touch to this day.
Although Ali may not have landed Frank, she did end up marrying radio presenter Kevin Manno, who the reality star herself admits looks a lot like Frank. Kevin and Ali married in 2017 and have two children together. 'The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons - Ever!' airs every Monday at 8/7c on ABC.
