Bachelorette Star Disappears

Viewers first met Ali Fedotowsky on Jake Pavelka‘s season of The Bachelor. She was widely considered a front-runner until her shocking decision to self-eliminate. Her employer – long rumored to be Facebook – gave her an ultimatum to return to work or be fired. She chose her job but later returned as lead for Season 6 of The Bachelorette.

She got engaged to Roberto Martinez but they broke up after a year of dating. A few years later, she started dating radio host Kevin Manno. The couple married in 2017.

They welcomed their first child, Molly, in 2016. A son, Riley, followed in 2018. Ali Fedotowsky has fully embraced the mom life and is also a social media influencer. Her children and husband often feature on her social media.

But she recently took a long social media break that coincided with time away from her family. She was rumored to be filming the Fox reality show Special Forces. Bachelor Nation star Trista Sutter was also gone from social media and her family during that time, causing speculation they are both on Season 3 of the reality show.

Ali Fedotowsky returned to social media on May 25 with a vague message that she has so much to share but can’t. Her post again seemed to verify that she was off filming a reality show.

The original return video last month featured only Ali. She took to her social media this week to share a heartfelt video of her reunion with her children and husband.

Her kids didn’t know she was going to be home when they returned from a walk. The video starts with her son, 6, walking up the driveway with the family dog, Owen. The dog barking caused the boy to look up and his mouth dropped open when he saw his mom.

He ran into her arms, followed by Molly, 7. Ali’s husband, Kevin, quickly joined the group hug and even lifted the dog up for a kiss.


There wasn’t a dry eye in the comment section but there was a lot of speculation about where Ali has been. Several of her followers asked if she was filming Special Forces, but the reality star is keeping mum for now.

One follower called her out for being a tad dramatic. “Sweet for the kids, but man are you dragging this out. You went on a reality show for not even 2 weeks.”

Do you think Ali Fedotowsky was a little over the top with multiple posts about being away from home? Sound off in the comments.
