The name on everybody’s lips is Ali Oetjen.

The blonde beauty, who was announced as Australia’s next Bachelorette on the final episode of Bachelor in Paradise last night, is no stranger to television. Channel Ten in fact.

Ali’s surprising past on the network was of a very different nature to the Bachie franchise. In fact, her audience were a lot smaller in stature and had huge imaginations!

The unlucky in love 32-year-old was a host for the popular TV show Humphrey B Bear and lucky for us, there’s photographic evidence.

Ahh, come to think about it, we thought she looked familiar.

Ali, who is described as a ‘Healthy Lifestyle motivator’ on her Instagram account, has had many jobs including her foray into kids’ TV.

She has also been a realtor and, this little gem of information – Miss V8 in Adelaide.

Since then, the South Australian beauty has appeared on two seasons of the Bachelor, including the debut season with Tim Robards where her job was to be ‘stage-5’ clinger (we kid, we kid).

After successfully handing that crown over to Jarrod Woodgate, Ali is set to become the next Bachelorette and we hope that THIS time, she finds the one she’s looking for.

In the meantime, some more throwback pics please!
