In the premiere of The Bachelorette, we’re taken back to when Ali Oetjen had her heartbroken on The Bachelor’s season one starring Tim Robards and later on Bachelor in Paradise last year.
And in The Bachelorette season four, Ali is ready to find her one true love putting her heart on the line once more, hoping to meet Mr Right amongst the 18 eligible bachelors all vying for her heart.
“I’ve come here to find true love, someone who I can start a family with,” Ali tells the camera.
“I’m looking for a good guy, the partner I can bring home to my dad,” Ali adds.
Aged between 23 and 42, each bachelor arrives on the red carpet ready to give their all.
The first up is handsome tall dark and handsome Charlie who brings her a handmade journal so she can write down her thoughts along her journey.
“Wow, that’s really thoughtful… Oh my God... Charlie gave me goosebumps, how am I not going to fall in love with this guy,” sighs Ali.
“I want the wife, the house and the picket fence,” Charlie says. Ali’s ovaries are fit to burst!
Next up is another good looking tall dark handsome man named Robert.
“Oh my god, he’s a stallion!” Ali sighs. “I’m going to be in trouble,” she adds.
Robert loves to cook and he gives her some passata as a gift. They talk about maybe making some sausages together. They appear to have lots of sexual chemistry.
Then lofty Ivan from Melbourne strolls in. She notes how tall he is. He pulls a few dodgy dance moves.
Then comes in body building Nathan from the Northern Beaches. He fancies himself rotten. “I’m a good-looking guy,” he boasts. He obviously this season’s villain. He brings Ali a giant teddy bear and boasts some more, Ali seems a bit uncomfortable with his character.
“I’m not sure if he’s overly interested to be honest,” Ali confesses.
But then another tall dark handsome man walks in called Bill.
“What a perfect face,” sighs Ali. “I wasn’t born as a Bill,” he says. Ali panics, she thinks he might actually be born a woman. “I was born a David, but I changed my name,” he says nervously. He’s so embarrassed and Ali endears to him even more.
Then a whole heap of other guys come through that obviously aren’t as important as the other lot.
“They are all so handsome and tall,” Ali gushes. She’s bowled over until one of them brings a kangaroo scrotum.
Then blonde British lad and soccer player Paddy walks in and they have a little chit chat and Ali can't get a word in edgeways. He writes her a poem, but he’s a bit of a lad and an obvious maverick.
“She looks fit as… definitely my type,” he growls.
And at the cocktail party he’s keen to stir some trouble between the men and makes up a story that he got the first kiss. “We had an instant connection Ali and I,” he brags.
There’s a few more guys to turn up, one in a plastic knight in shining armour and a chap called Dan who’s from the bush and decides to bring a baby kid.
Ali feeds the baby kid and they talk about raising their own kids of their own.
“Dan is really lovely,” Ali sighs. She appears to be in love with 90 per cent of the men.
Then a guy called Pete comes in and all he can do is talk about her ‘nice ass’ before the man in the plastic shining armour suit turns up. His name is Todd.
“It’s about time your knight in shining armour walks in,” he says.
Ali’s eyes pop out. He talks about hurt in the past and she decides that Todd has that aura that she’s been looking for. He has to be a frontrunner for sure.
The guys then all reconvene and talk about how gorgeous Ali is before Osher walks in and introduces the ‘wild rose’ which gives the power to steal another man’s single date with Ali.
‘Gone with the bro code!’ Paddy yells. He can’t wait to have the chance to use it.
Next up the boys all fight for Ali’s time in the hope to win the wild rose, pushing their way into other people’s chats and eventually a few harsh words are thrown around particularly between bad boys Nathan and Paddy.
Paddy causes plenty of the raucous and Ivan feels the need to release some stress and start busting out some dance moves and organises a little dance group for Ali. It’s all a bit cheesy. The other men are all not sure where to look.
But at the end of the party, a wild rose can only go to one man. And nervous Bill wins it! Viewers rejoice!
At the rose ceremony two unknowns, one named Ben who happens to look like Honey Badger who gifted the kangaroo scrotum and another called Brendon go home. Bye boys we hardly got to know. It should have been Paddy!
