During The Bachelorette finale, Desiree Hartsock had her world shattered when Brooks Forester walked out on her. Despite her devastation, Desiree was thrilled to accept a proposal from Chris Siegfried, and just in case you were wondering – Desiree wants her fans to know that Chris was never a second choice for her!
Many of us who tuned into the finale of The Bachelorette were a bit surprised that Desiree Hartsock got engaged to Chris Siegfried. I mean, after all, the spoilers all said she was engaged to Brooks, and she seemed completely devastated when Brooks walked out.
However, speaking to reporters today, Desiree insisted that Chris was never a second choice for her. “Those last two weeks…those are the most vital,” Hartsock revealed, claiming that Brooks’ departure made her realize how strong her feelings actually were for Chris. “I never had any kind of hopes for Brooks to come back. That ship had sailed,” Desiree added, noting that she and Siegfried had a strong connection from the start.
For Chris Siegfried, it was a no-brainer. Brooks or no Brooks, he still had his mind set, as he explained: “I still knew at the end of the day I wanted to be with Des.” As for their future, Desiree says that they would like to plan a wedding for next summer. But for now, Hartsock will be relocating to Seattle where the couple can enjoy some quality time together – without the glamor of The Bachelorette.
