The Bachelorette Australia has kicked off once again, and this time The Bachelorette is Ali Oetjen.
Lifestyle motivator Ali is no stranger to dating shows. She was pied off at the end of The Bachelor Australia season 1 by Tim Robards and Ali also appeared on Bachelor in Paradise Australia in the spring of 2018.
This time looks to be different, though. Ali said: “I don’t wanna go after that bad boy anymore. I want a guy that I can bring home to mum and dad.”
Here are five things you didn’t know about Ali Oetjen!
Ali Oetjen Has Adorable Dogs
Ali’s Instagram is packed full of health and fitness posts, however, she has dedicated a couple to her dogs.
Leo is a Kelpie, Jack Russell, Whippet cross and she also has another dog that looks like she could be a Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross named Lilly.
Ali was engaged to Dave Waldeck
Ali’s had a seriously tough time trying to find love.
She went on The Bachelor Australia season 1 and was dumped at the very end by Tim Robards, she also appeared on Bachelor in Paradise and had a relationship with Grant Kemp but that didn’t last.
After all of that she then settled down with Dave Waldeck and the pair even got engaged but that relationship also took a turn for the worst.
Ali’s Parents Have the Fairytale
It’s no wonder Ali Oetjen’s on the hunt for true love as her parents have been married for 37 years!

She said that this time though, she will take things slower rather than falling in love with the first guy that she meets on The Bachelorette Australia.

Ali’s a Foodie
Of course the fitness enthusiast wouldn’t just stop at exercise, she’s on this health thing and that means eating the perfect diet too!
Ali’s snacking on strawberries and blueberries, handfuls of nuts and on the odd occassion, she’ll make a homemade cheat dessert.
