Ali’s Mean, Anti-Love Employer? Facebook.
On Monday’s episode of “The Bachelor,” bubbly, blonde fan-favorite Ali Fedotowsky was given a choice by her boss—come back to work or get fired. She decided to leave the show. We still think her boss might have done her the ultimate service, setting her up for the perfect leave-then-come-back surprise win, but what kind of love-hating boss would lay down such an ultimatum? According to NYMag.com, one at Facebook. In late June, Ali Twittered, “My last week at PCG!!! Start job at Facebook next Monday!!!! YAY!” A week later, she wrote, “[HEART] my job.” Apparently, Ali told her boss about the show—though, uh, neglected to tell her co-workers because there’s no way they’d ever find out, right?—and maxxed out her vacation days to leave. But then she and Jake hit it off, she stayed longer then expected, and her vacation days evaporated. Hence, the ultimatum. A spokesperson for Facebook added, “We appreciate the personal decision to return to work was deeply difficult, but we’re glad Ali decided to come back.” We just hope that Ali returns to Jake and wins this thing, so that they can update their statuses together.
