August 07, 2013 03:30 PM by Lisa Princ

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.

What did you think of The Bachelorette finale? Are you thrilled that Des ended up with Chris? Or should she have walked away from both guys? It’s your turn to sound off! Comment below to share your thoughts with us.

    All things considered, Chris was her best choice. Des seemed able to focus on the bachelor she was with and rely on her feelings with that person rather than comparing them or ranking them. She never really really connected with Brooks which she realized when he left. If he had tried to come back, I’m sure she would have rejected him. Chris and Des are a sweet couple, and I hope the very best for them.

    I think she should have walked away from everyone. In less than a year she thought she loved Sean, then Brook, then Chris. She should have stepped back and figured how what she really wanted. I think she might have a problem of always wanting what she cannot have. I hope it works out but have my doubts and feel Chris will be the one in tears.

    I don’t believe either one of them. Chris was the last man there when he proposed. For Des, it was him or nothing. Under those circumstances, she would have said Yes to the proverbial junkyard dog. Chris was just plain P-W! When the lovey-dovey wears off, Shangri-La will turn into the City Dump. Des will be outa there so fast Chris won’t know what hit him.
