The Bachelorette kicked off its tenth season last night with 25 dudes vying for the heart of Andi Dorfman. The 26-year-old assistant district attorney was smart enough to realize Juan Pablo Galavis wasn’t for her during The Bachelor, but are any of these men any better?

After her engagement to The Bachelor star Brad Womack came to a speedy end last year, we wouldn’t have blamed Emily Maynard for swearing off dating shows forever. At the time, the single mom told People that she wanted to “move on and get back to normal.” But now it looks like the 25-year-old single mom is getting back on the reality wagon once more, by agreeing to star in ABC’s The Bachelorette! Although ABC has remained silent on the matter so far, show producers are reporting that Emily has inked the deal.
The move comes as something of a surprise, considering that she recently seemed against the idea of appearing on the show. Emily was rumored to have turned ABC down last year, and over the summer she straight up tweeted, “I don’t want to be The Bachelorette.” And it’s not like she’s in love with the show’s format. During her Bachelor tenure, she was reportedly very concerned about being a good role model for her 6-year-old daughter, Ricki. She made it clear that her overnight date in the “Fantasy Suite” with Womack only included talking, and at moments she seemed genuinely uncomfortable with the whole selection process.
After 18 months of being engaged, Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez have broken up. Without giving a reason for the split, their publicist told Us Weekly, “Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez have ended their relationship. As they go through this difficult time, we ask that you respect the couple’s privacy.”
There goes another Bachelorette relationship that didn’t work out. Ali and Mark were engaged since the show, back in 2009, carrying on even after wedding plans were put on hold this year. Ali claimed that was because she had to get knee surgery, and they didn’t “feel the need to walk down the aisle right now.” But sources claim that it was doomed right from the start, revealing, “Their relationship has been tumultuous since day one. They’re either extremely happy or they can’t stand each other.” Did you see the split coming or did you think they would get down that aisle eventually?
