The Bachelorette's Ali Oetjen will not be replaced confirmed Channel 10 in an official statement released in the wake of reports that the network were preparing to find a new bachelorette for the upcoming season.
On Monday, rumours swirled that the producers were unhappy with Ali following her ex Grant Kemp's claims that she had cheated on him with his best friend. According to NW magazine, the show was holding “crisis meetings” as they considered recasting Oetjen with Nikki Gogan.
However the network has addressed the rumour, slamming reports that Ali was getting dropped as “false and misleading."
“Network Ten is looking forward to Ali finding love on The Bachelorette Australia later this year,” a spokeswoman told News Corp.
