Following a dramatic season of The Bachelorette that included a heartbreaking scene involving Brooks’ departure, Desiree Hartsock finally chose Chris Siegfried. But Desiree’s brother says that this was a huge mistake — and that, despite her claims suggesting otherwise, Desiree has merely settled for Chris.
Allegedly, the whole point of shows like The Bachelor and The Bachelorette is to find the special someone and not to settle for whichever contestant happens to be the least obnoxious. Desiree believes she has done just that in choosing Chris Siegfried, even though, shortly prior to this selection, the reality star was bawling her eyes out about supposed soul mate Brooks Forester.
Desiree may be fooling herself and perhaps fooling many of her fans, but one person certain isn’t buying the explanation — the celeb’s own brother. In an exclusive interview with Life & Style, Nate voices many of the suspicions that have nagged us ever since the season finale aired. For example, if Des was soo in love with Brooks, why was she able to change her mind (and allegedly, her heart) so quickly? According to Nate, this was all a ploy to find a man — any man — who was willing to settle down and start a family. “Desiree went on the show because she wanted to get married so badly and she wanted the family and to have kids. Obviously Chris wasn’t her first choice.”
Although Nate Hartsock believes that his sister settled for Chris, he also thinks that she is currently very happy with her choice. And it looks like a wedding is in her near future! “I could see a wedding happening even quicker than next summer. I think it’s obvious she settled for him, but Desiree is at the point where she’s ‘all in’ with Chris, and I think he is just happy he gets to be with her.”
Do you agree with Nate? Did Desiree Hartsock settle for Chris Siegfried? Sound off in the comments section below!
