This is going to be a shock to all of you fans who believe in the power of a relationship forged on a reality show, but ‘Bachelorette’ Ali Fedotowsky has ended her relationship with Roberto Martinez.

PEOPLE is reporting that Fedotowsky and Martinez have split up. A representative for the couple has released a statement with the usual “we ask that you respect the couple’s privacy” line that all statements in situations like this seem to have.

The two met on the ABC reality show last year, where Martinez made a “romantic” proposal to Fedotowsky by the sea. As recently as last month, the couple was still living together and still planning on getting married, even though the wedding date had been pushed back. Obviously, something happened since that time to change those plans.

There’s good news in all of this though: now both are free to compete on future seasons of ‘The Bachelorette’ and/or ‘The Bachelor.’
