'Bachelor' Jake Pavelka to 'Extra': 'Ali was my frontrunner'

jake-pavelka-ali-fedotowsky.jpgWant some inside dish on the Monday, Feb. 22 "Women Tell All" episode of "The Bachelor?"

Jake Pavelka tells "Extra's" Terri Seymour, "Ali was my frontrunner. I basically begged her not to go. I did want her to come [back], she left me, Terri. There were three women who didn't. Who would I have sent home?"

Interesting. But one has to wonder ... if he liked Ali so much, why didn't he have her come to St. Lucia when she called him begging for another chance? He could've still sent both her and Gia packing at the end.

Perhaps because this is all a marketing campaign for Ali to be the next Bachelorette?

Meanwhile, eliminated contestant Gia Allemand also spoke with "Extra's" Terri Seymour. "I think Tenley's probably like the obvious choice, but when you see him with Vienna, you just melt. The minute I didn't get a rose, I was like, I knew it."
