Former Bachelorette Ali Oetjen made a rare public appearance last week and was photographed looking more loved up than ever with boyfriend Mitch Adams.

The pair have been together since 2022 and were spotted enjoying a romantic trip to Noosa together.

Despite finding fame on Tim Robard’s season of The Bachelor in 2013, appearing on Bachelor In Paradise in 2017 and then becoming The Bachelorette in 2018, these days Ali is a lot more low-key with her latest relationship and has shied away from the public eye.

After her stint on The Bachelorette, Ali found love with Taite Radley, but the two called it quits after dating for two years, saying they needed to focus on their "own paths". She later appeared on SAS Australia in 2020, but has kept a relatively low profile since.

In recent years, the former office worker has also re-invented herself as a Holistic Life Coach and Breathwork Teacher. She now uses her socials to promote "love and light" and hosts wellness retreats across Australia.

During her rise to fame, Ali worked in the sales department at Adelaide radio station Mix 102.3 and often spoke about her dream to become an actress – but has since abandoned these career paths. She also had a stint working in real estate.

These days, however, Ali seems more content with her journey into meditation and breathwork vs being spotted on a red carpet. The former reality star now hosts private group sessions, in-studio sessions on the Sunshine Coast, and a weekly breathwork and meditation session on Zoom with subscriptions starting at $5 a week.
