Her seemingly flawless complexion and noticeably plump lips raised more than a few eyebrows when she appeared on Bachelor In Paradise.
But ahead of her return as The Bachelorette later this year, it would seem Ali Oetjen has embraced a more natural look by having her dermal fillers dissolved.
Perhaps in a bid to become more ‘girl-next-door’ than ‘Barbie doll’, the 32-year-old appears to have a noticeably thinner pout in recent photos.

Ali, who has denied undergoing any face-enhancing cosmetic surgery, has significantly thinner lips today compared to last year, when she filmed Bachelor In Paradise.
Ali’s lower lip appears visibly plumper in her social media posts from October.
During Paradise, fellow contestant Florence Alexandra Sophia hinted that she believed Ali had undergone Botox injections.

Florence claimed Ali ‘looks like Malibu Barbie’ and that ‘her face doesn’t really move.’
Despite admitting to having a breast augmentation, Ali was reluctant to speak about her facial cosmetic work during an interview earlier this year.
She told Brisbane’s Hit105: ‘I hadn’t even had Botox in my forehead before. Maybe my face isn’t moving cause I’m not reacting to the girls’ comments.’
Ali, who currently works at Adelaide radio station Mix 102.3, is all set to be Australia’s next Bachelorette.

However, she has proven to be a controversial choice.
After the announcement was made at the conclusion of Bachelor In Paradise, many fans remarked that she was ‘boring’.
Later, he ex-boyfriend Grant Kemp made explosive claims that Ali had cheated on him back in March.
For weeks, rumours circulated that Network Ten wanted to ‘dump’ Ali as Bachelorette and replace her with fan favourite Nikki Gogan.

However, Ali insisted earlier this week: ‘I am about to start filming and I am 100 per cent the Bachelorette.’
A Network Ten spokesperson also told Daily Mail Australia on Monday that reports Ali was about to be ‘dumped’ from the show were false
‘The rumour that Ali Oetjen will be replaced by Nikki Gogan as The Bachelorette is completely false and misleading,’ they said.
‘Network Ten is looking forward to Ali finding love on The Bachelorette Australia later this year.’
