The Bachelor: Barefoot Ali Oetjen Quits Sunshine Coast Yoga Class

Barefoot Ali Oetjen leaves yoga class on the Sunshine Coast after blasting The Bachelor for ‘removing the reality of love’ and being ‘highly manipulated’

Ali Oetjen showed off her washboard abs and chiseled arms as she left a yoga class in Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast on Tuesday.

The 36-year-old former Bachelorette, who is known for her dedication to fitness, tied her blonde hair in a ponytail and slung a yoga mat over her shoulder.

The wellness influencer showed off her natural beauty by going makeup-free and complemented her sporty look with a fitness watch.

At one point, Ali looked distracted as she read a text on her phone.

She recently joined the chorus of former Bachelorettes speaking out after Channel 10 axed the dating show after years of low ratings.

Although its counterpart The Bachelor got a facelift this year with three single men looking for love, The Bachelorette won’t get an eighth season in 2022.

Ali, who appeared on The Bachelorette in 2018 as well as Tim Robards season of The Bachelor in 2013 and the first season of Bachelor in Paradise, suggested the show’s axing was due to “low ratings”.

“My assumptions might be that viewers no longer see the full reality, but [instead] a highly manipulated and strategic show displaying predictable characters and compound storylines,’ she said, comparing The Bachelorette to MAFS.

“They took away the reality of love. Viewers can see it’s just for entertainment and not to depict “reality,” she continued.

Channel 10 chief content officer Beverley McGarvey confirmed earlier this month that The Bachelorette will not return to screens in 2022.

However, Ms McGarvey said this has not been completely ruled out for future seasons.

“I think a bit of a shortage this year is probably going to help us move forward,” she told TV Tonight.

Ali previously talked about his fitness routine in an interview with women’s health in October 2018.

“Every morning it’s a 3km walk or a run by the river,” she said, revealing that she trains every day.

She does “one hour of boxing and/or 1h30 of dance lessons” on Mondays, while Tuesdays are reserved for “45 minutes of cycling or full bodyweight training”.

Ali does “a one-hour run or martial arts” on Wednesday, followed by an “hour of boxing” on Thursday.

She said Fridays are for yoga, while Saturdays involve “45 minutes of biking or weight lifting and then an afternoon hike.”

Ali ends the week on Sunday with “a run and some yoga.”

“My key to always being fully engrossed, motivated and excited about my workouts is to make them fun and dynamic!” she said on Instagram in October.

Ali, who works as a meditation and wellness instructor, previously opened up about her fitness routine in an interview with Women's Health in October 2018.
