UPDATE 2/3/2014: Nice girls finish last... but apparently not on The Bachelor, where you kinda want to finish last — on a mountaintop at sunset with a big sparkly ring.
Alli Restko struck us as one of the sweetest ladies in Juan Pablo's harem, but she was sadly eliminated at the Rose Ceremony in Da Nang, Vietnam, along with Kelly Travis and Danielle Ronco. And it's too bad, since we're pretty sure she was the most into soccer of any of the girls, thus seeming to have a lot more in common with the former Miami FC midfielder than most of the remaining women. Juan's judgment has definitely been questionable more than once this season!
ORIGINAL STORY 9/13/2013: The new season of The Bachelor 2014 starts in January, but filming for Juan Pablo Galavis’ love journey will begin in the next week or so, and we’re beginning to get intel on some of the ladies who will be vying for his love. And while we don’t know much about contestant Alli Restko, we’re already super drawn to her.
This 26-year-old brunette beauty is pretty mysterious, having already shut down creepers like us from stalking her too much on her Facebook and Twitter accounts. One thing we do know, though, is that Season 9 Bachelorette semi-bad boy James Case is friends with her on Facebook, which could mean anything…
Perhaps they’re pals from Miami University in Ohio (could someone please explain that name to us?!), since Alli graduated from there in 2009 and currently resides in Chicago. Sheesh, what is it about Chicagoans that make them such entertaining Bachelor Nation members? (Looking at you, Bukowski).
According to her Facebook profile, she currently works for the Tennis Channel and enjoys a good game of beer pong, meaning she’s a sports and games fan (or just likes drinking and balls). With her big, genuine smile and overall attractiveness, we’re betting Juan Pablo won’t have a hard time finding something about her he likes mucho.
Do you think Alli is a good match for Juan Pablo? Tell.
