'Bachelor' EXCLUSIVE: Taunting Ali Was Part of Vienna's Winning Strategy

USMagazine, Wednesday, March 3, 2010, 5:03am (PST)

"Bachelor" winner Vienna Girardi, 23, complained on the March 1 finale that her fellow contestants -- particularly Ali Fedotowsky, 25 -- hated her, but perhaps the animosity was deserved.

"You don't see the things Vienna said to me. They were very hurtful," Fetodowsky, ABC's new "Bachelorette," said on "After The Final Rose" March 1. Indeed, in the new issue of Us Weekly, one of the season's contestants, says that the fan fave took Girardi's insults personally.

"Vienna would always thank us for coming to her 'bachelorette' or 'engagement party,' then tell us we were all going home," the contestant tells Us. "Ali would just call her out on it."

The fiercely competitive Girardi ("she always had to one-up people," another show castoff recounts) quickly recognized Fedotowsky as her main obstacle to winning the heart of pilot Jake Pavelka, 32.

"Vienna would say to Ali that she was going to shake her boobs in Jake's face," explains another show insider.

"I think Jake hasn't ever been with a girl like Vienna and is experiencing a 'wild side,'" a source observes. "Once she figured that out, maybe she was a little more seductive."

To read more about Vienna's calculated strategy to win -- including how she would "grab Jake's butt," how Tenley's holding up since Pavelka dumped her, and the surprising details about the "Bachelor"'s shocking contract for its contestants, pick up the new issue of Us Weekly -- on newsstands today!
