You gotta feel at least a little bit bad for Desiree Hartsock. Following a sad ending on the past season of The Bachelor, the reality star thought that her prospects would improve during her very own season of The Bachelorette. But based on last night’s episode, it looks like the only thing in store for Desiree was more heartbreak.
We can’t say she didn’t warn us — Desiree Hartsock made a point of informing fans that there would be plenty of tears during the ninth season of The Bachelorette. But that didn’t make the first part of the season finale any less difficult for dedicated viewers. Although still somewhat unsure as to what decision she should make, Desiree was beginning to really fall for Brooks Forester…but clearly, this love was not meant to be, as Brooks wound up ditching the woman he once claimed to love.
Disappointed fans should keep in mind that Brooks had a pretty good reason for breaking it off with Desiree — his feelings just were not strong enough to promise forever. As Brooks explained to a sobbing Desiree, “I don’t feel like the moments apart are hard enough.”
As if that was not enough of a bombshell, the audience then learned that Desiree really had fallen head over heels for Brooks. She told him that, in spite of everything, she was still deeply in love. “It sucks because for once in my life I was hopeful. It just sucks that I loved you. I love you regardless..I didn’t want to share my heart, I wanted to give it to you.”
This breakup is sad and all, but lest anyone be tempted to turn Brooks into the season’s villain, remember that this was not a decision he took lightly. As he walked away from Desiree, he muttered, “This is the worst day of my life.”
