Ali isn't the only person wishing she'd been able to return to The Bachelor. Forty-six percent of more than 9,700 voters in a TVGuide.com online poll are hoping that Jake chooses the 25-year-old in the finale — even though she's no longer in the running to receive the final rose.
The advertising account manager left Jake for her job in Week 6, but then pleaded with him to allow her back the following episode. He said no, to the disappointment of Ali and many viewers.
The two women remaining in Monday's finale are Tenley, the sweet and cheery 25-year-old who has received 33 percent of the votes, and Vienna, the outspoken wild girl, who has only garnered 7 percent.
Last season's Bachelorette poll had a similar outcome. Forty-one percent of TVGuide.com users were hoping that Jillian Harris would choose Reid Rosenthal, a rejected suitor who was returning for the finale for one final shot. Instead, Harris chose Ed Swiderski and the two are still a couple.
Do you think Jake will follow our readers' advice?
