She was also a reality television contestant known from her appearances as a cast member on the ABC reality shows The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love and was the sixth Bachelorette (2010).

Early life

Fedotowsky was born in Massachusetts.[1] She grew up in North Adams and Williamstown and is a graduate of Mount Greylock Regional High School.[2] She attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst for two years prior to transferring to Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 2006.[3]


Fedotowsky's work in television began when she was selected as a cast member on ABC's reality show The Bachelor series which first aired on January 4, 2010. The show placed her with twenty-four other women all contending for the affection of pilot Jake Pavelka. She left the show when she was confronted with an ultimatum from her employer, Facebook, regarding the choice to return to work or to quit.[4]

Fedotowsky then returned as the star of The Bachelorette where she became engaged with Roberto Martinez in the finale.[5]

After The Bachelorette, Fedotowsky moved to San Diego, California and joined the local Fox news station as a weekly morning show correspondent.[6] From March 2012 through the fall of 2013, she hosted the weekly lifestyle television show 1st Look, which airs on NBC.[7][8]

Fedotowsky was on the live judging panel for Miss USA 2012.[9]

On August 7, 2013, E! News announced Fedotowsky had been hired as a correspondent.[10] In June 2015, she announced she was leaving that position.[11]

Personal life

In 2010, Fedotowsky became engaged to Roberto Martinez on the finale of The Bachelorette.[12] In November 2011, Fedotowsky and Martinez ended their engagement.[12] Fedotowsky began dating Kevin Manno, a radio and television host, in 2013.[citation needed] The two announced their engagement in September 2015.[13][14] On January 6, 2016, they announced they are expecting their first child.[15]
