She later called Jake, hoping he would take her back. She said she was shocked when he told her to stay put. But then she "realized and understood his decision ... when I saw his dates with Gia, Tenley and Vienna and how special they were and the relationships he was building there. Now that I get to see that I understand, even though it might've been a little surprising at the time and hurtful. I was heartbroken."

The Bachelor: Where Are They Now?

Ali isn't the only bachelorette with regrets — 26-year-old Gia wishes she could've expressed her feelings to Jake on her fantasy date in St. Lucia.

"I thought about it and I said it to everyone else but him," Gia said, adding: "I had a breakup and my heart was really broken and I guess I was just scared to come out and say it. I just kept holding off and hoping that I could just get it out and I didn't."

The Bachelor's "Women Tell All" episode airs Monday at 8/7c on ABC.
