Bachelorette’ Ali Fedotowsky knew she saw a good thing in Southern gent Ty Brown: He was tall, handsome, considerate, and could make her swoon by the diddies he’d strum on his gee-tar. (Aw heck, from the looks of it in the bathhouse in Turkey, he even knew how to bring on the heat with his finger tips! Yeee hawww!) Unfortunately, what seemed to do him in ‘right quick’ was Ali’s perception that he was too traditional for her modern tastes.

In a conference call with reporters, Mr. Cracker Barrel set the record straight on what kind of woman he wants, how the show has recharged his dreams of being a country singer, and how he feels about his fellow cowboys.

About being the final reject before the hometown dates:
“I was shocked. At the same time, it was almost relieving because I didn’t have to get my family involved. But at the same time, yes, I was shocked. I was disappointed that I went home.”

About that awkward two-on-one date with Franky:
“It wasn’t as awkward as I thought on TV, but it definitely was not a place that I wanted to be, but we did have to make the best of it. And, you know, deep down, I really knew that [Frank] had a great connection with [Ali], but I didn’t really think that it was that much more than we had. Obviously, it was, but I didn’t realize that at the time.”

Watch the awkward two-on-one date:

About whether he thinks Ali ousted him because of his traditional ways:
“I did tell her that I grew up in that traditional lifestyle, but, you know, necessarily am I looking for that? No. I mean, I wanted to get across to her that it thrills me to see somebody that is so ambitious and somebody that knows what she wants and is not scared to speak up…maybe I didn’t do such a great job. I think that was kind of a setback, and I think that’s one of the things that she was concerned with that I maybe wanted a traditional lifestyle, which is not really that all true.”

About how the show has inspired him to pursue his music career:
“[The show has] definitely given me a great platform, and it’s opened a lot of doors for me. But I’ve been playing music for 10 years now, and it’s something that I’ve always loved, and this finally gave me the opportunity to say, ‘Hey, you know what? I’m finally going to do something for myself and something that I’m passionate about.’  And that’s what I’m doing, you know?”

About who he thinks is best for Ali:
“If I had to pick one, I think that Chris L., in my opinion, is probably one of the better fits for Ali.  They had really good chemistry.”

About the idea of being the next Bachelor:
“If they asked me to be the next ‘Bachelor,’ I would definitely consider it. After being on the show already, I know that it’s very difficult. And to see the things that Ali struggled with and the things that gave her moments of tough emotion, I think that it would be tough, but it would definitely be something I would consider for sure.”

About the dudes:
“These guys will be friends of mine forever. Since I did not end up being the one Ali chooses, the biggest takeaway is that I’ve made lifelong friends…like Chris L., Roberto, Jesse, Kirk, Craig M.–they’re really great. But living with these guys, it was almost taking me back to my youngest days when I had roommates. It kind of was a setback for awhile, but I got used to it. And when I got home, it was like ‘Where’s everybody?’ I kind of miss those guys.”
