Jake Pavelka wasn't willing to wing his way cross-country for her, but maybe one of the next 25 men in her life will.

Ali Fedotowsky, who stunned Bachelor fans everywhere by choosing to leave the show to go back to work, has been named the next Bachelorette.

"I am so excited!" the 25-year-old told double-duty host Chris Harrison on The Bachelor: After the Final Rose special Monday. "I am so thrilled and honored and grateful, I just can't believe it! I'm just really grateful.

"I'm shaking so bad," the nerve-stricken career gal said.

As for whom she's looking for: a guy who's "funny, smart, kind of quirky...I don't really need anything in particular."

"I want to be in love and I want to get married and have kids and this is my chance now."

Join Ali on her journey when the sixth season of The Bachelorette premieres May 24.
