Ali Oetjen may have declared her love for Taite Radley last night, but it seems Australia isn’t behind the new couple.
Fans of the TV show took to social media moments after it aired on Thursday night to vent their frustration, after the notoriously unlucky in love Ali picked Taite over ‘knight in shining armour’, Todd King.
The reason for their apparent anger is because the 28-year-old winner had regularly been confused over whether he was ‘ready to commit’, while his competition had laid his heart on the line.
Cue countless heads banging against the nearest walls.
Summary of the bachelorette: Ali chose the wrong guy and love is dead. #BacheloretteAU

Ali doesn’t want to make the same mistakes, but.. picks the guy who said he can’t commit to anything over the guy who promised her everything she’s ever wanted.. #selfsabotage #doesntreallywanttobehappy #butthinksshedoes #BacheloretteAU

Ali: "I've learnt from my mistakes." *chooses the guy who isn't ready to commit*
Australia: CLEARLY YOU HAVEN'T #BacheloretteAU

But while some fans are clearly furious, others supported their new love.
At the end of the day the decision was hers & im so happy for her to feel like she has her happy ever after finally! #BacheloretteAU

Regardless of Australia’s thoughts, 32-year-old Ali seems absolutely smitten with her new man.
Taking to Instagram hours after the show aired, the former Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise star declared she’d “never been more spiritually, emotionally, physically connected and in love”.
With this years season of The Bachelor ending with a string of broken hearts after Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins sent everyone home, we’re counting this as a win.
Congrats Ali and Taite.
