Will 'Bachelorette' Ali Give Newly Single Jake a Shot?

Ali Fedotowsky responds to news of the Jake-Vienna breakup, and says her feelings for the former Bachelor are history

Now that Jake Pavelka is, once again, a bachelor, is current Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky interested in helping him heal the wounds after his breakup from Vienna Girardi? Fedotowsky, 25, famously jilted Pavelka, 32, when she bolted from ABC's The Bachelor to save her job. At the time, her sudden and emotional departure upset Pavelka, who said he had feelings for her.

But the past is apparently in the past, and their romance will not be rekindled. Fedotowsky told E!, "I've made a decision to move forward in my life. That just wouldn't be fair to the guys here, and it took some time, but I'm healed and moved on from Jake." 

Fedotowsky also revealed that she and Pavelka haven't even spoken since the The Bachelor: The Women Tell All special, which aired back in February!

When asked if she'd allow one of her reality-TV suitors to return to the show if he had to leave early to meet career obligations, she expressed an open mind about that hypothetical situation: "If my feelings were strong enough for him, absolutely," she said, adding, "There's no question in my mind if I'd let him back and if anything, if my feelings were strong enough at the end of the show I'd go find him."

The Bachelorette airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
