The Bachelorette 2018: Ali finally gets her fairytale ending

Third times the charm!

In a highly emotional season finale of the Bachelorette Australia, Ali Oetjen finally found her happily ever after.

After six weeks of searching for Mr Right, the blonde beauty followed her heart and declared her love for Victorian Bank Manager Taite Radley.


“I’m literally the happiest girl in the world right now. I trusted my heart and it led me to you,” the 32-year-old confessed to her new love in front of a stunning outback setting in the Northern Territory.

Sadly, Ali’s decision meant she had to break the heart of runner up and ultimate sweetheart Todd King.

In what people have dubbed as one of the most emotional segments on Australian reality TV, Ali told the West Australian Sales Rep that although he is one of the kindest people she had ever met, there was something missing for her.

Trying to hold back tears, Todd graciously congratulated Ali on finding love with Taite, before walking off and breaking down.

“This has been about you and I’m so happy for you. You’ve found yourself a great guy,” he told her.

Following the finale, Ali and Taite both took to social media to reveal they were still in-love and happier than ever.

“You’re the reason why I have been so happy. Now everybody knows. I love you and I can’t imagine a day I won’t,” A loved-up Taite posted.

In her post, Ali revealed that doing long distance had been tough.

“Photo bomb! We are outdoorsy adventurers aren’t we lovey!” she wrote.

“These past couple of months have been so hard, long distance relationship plus keeping us a secret plus how over the moon happy I am!

“I’ve never been more spiritually, emotionally, physically connected and in love. You light up my world beautiful!”
