New Bachelorette, Ali Fedotowsky’s career could once again wreck her chances of finding love, Ali’s former coach tells

Now despite being given time off from her job at Facebook, the 25-year-old could be headed down the same path.

Speaking exclusively to, coach Mo Cassara – who worked with Fedotowsky when she was managing a men’s basketball team at Clark University, MA – says this particular show is going to be a difficult one.

“Whoever it is will have to be able to keep up with Ali,” he said. “Honestly it’s going to be a tough guy to find.”

Cassara has known Fedotowsky for five years and insists she is one of the most driven women he has ever met.

“She really is one of the nicest, most beautiful girls I know. But it really didn’t surprise me at all when she left the other show to get back to her job. She is extremely bright and always knew what she wanted to do.”

Even at college she had little time for men.

“She had a couple of serious boyfriends but they were long distance,” said Cassara. “She kept up the relationship, but she was very dedicated to school. She was so competitive and was a perfect student. That’s not to say she didn’t have friends too. She was popular and everyone could see how beautiful she was.”

Asked why, with all these qualities, she has to go on television to find a man he said: “You would think men would be dropping at her feet. It beats me. She had this ability to mix with everyone, whether they were musicians or athletes. She fit into every group.

“Somehow she did find time to socialize. But I don’t know how. She worked with me on the basketball team, she also worked in the fitness centre and around that she would be a 4.0 student. It’s just the type of person she is.”

And she won’t be intimidated by all the male attention on the show either.

“She worked as the manager of a men’s basketball team,” he said. “And she was never, ever intimidated. Ali has an immense amount of self confidence and is very out going. She won’t change for the show, she will stay real. I look forward to seeing what happens.”
