The Bachelorette Top 3: Which suitor will receive the final rose?

Three's a crowd...

By Zara Zubeidi
The Bachelorette Australia finale is fast approaching, with Ali Oetjen set to make her final decision in episodes airing later this week. But which suitor will receive the final rose?
TV WEEK chats to Ali's suitors Todd King, Bill Goldsmith and Taite Radley ahead of this week's finale.

Todd King

"I just want her to be happy"
There's no doubt Todd can see a future with Ali – despite his sister Kerryn's reservations.
"She's always sceptical when I bring a girl to meet the family, but I think it comes from a good place," Todd, 26, explains to TV WEEK.
"My family just have to trust what I believe in."
The smitten star says he'll be "devastated" if Ali doesn't present him with the final rose. But his main priority is Ali's happiness.
"The saving grace for me is I care so much about her that regardless of the outcome, I just want her to be happy," he says. "If it's with me, all the better. If it's not, I can rest easy knowing the other guys are good people."

Bill Goldsmith

"I think Ali is insecure"
Viewers have seen Ali and Bill forge a strong connection throughout the show. But Bill made a crucial error of judgement during the hometown visits by inviting his close friend Amy, with whom he's previously hooked up.
The hunky mechanical plumber from Victoria says he has no regrets about introducing Ali to his former flame. In fact, he thinks Ali's response speaks volumes.
"I think some of Ali's insecurities were brought up," Bill, 31, tells TV WEEK.
"I'm not sure, but maybe she felt intimidated by Amy or something. I want a partner who is confident in our relationship. We're not all born-again virgins – we're always going to have history with people!"

Taite Radley

"I don't know where I stand"
When it comes to being Ali's final suitor, Taite, 28, admits he'd be "shattered" if he didn't make it to the end. However, throughout the show the bank manager has been hesitant when revealing his feelings.
"I don't know where I stand with Ali," he reveals to TV WEEK. "I don't know what's real and not real.
I'm questioning whether she's telling me the truth.
"The other guys say their connections are great, which makes me doubt my own."
But Taite says watching the show has given him a confidence boost.
"Looking back now, it's made me realise what she was saying was real," he says.
The Bachelorette Australia airs Wednesday and Thursday, 7:30pm, on Network 10.
