Good grief. With every new season of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, things start getting less and less mysterious. The current season isn't even done filming yet, and already rumors about Desiree Hartsock's final pick are circulating -- to the point where we'll probably know who she's engaged to before The Bachelorette premiere even airs.
At this point, I've given up on attempting to avoid the spoilers, well, because it's next to impossible given my job and all.
But I don't want to ruin the show for you if you're not into the whole spoiler thing, so here's your fair warning: DO NOT read any farther if you don't want to have a good idea of who Des picks.
I repeat -- SPOILER AHEAD.
The word on the street is that Brooks Forester, a model and sales rep, will wind up putting a ring on Desiree's finger, based on a couple of clues indicating he may be the one.
First off, Des chose Brooks to go on her first one-on-one date, and they even went the cheesy route and dressed up in wedding attire. (Barf.)
And just a few days ago, Des headed to Salt Lake City for a hometown date with Brooks, so we know he's definitely one of her final four dudes.
Duh, of course Reality Steve has some insight into her final pick too. He says, "Desiree's choice in the end will not surprise anyone." And even though the show isn't done filming so she hasn't actually made her decision -- that statement could indicate that he has inside information leading him to believe she'll pick someone she's had a connection with right from the beginning.
And honestly, it wouldn't shock me in the least if it's fairly clear who Des winds up with after only a few weeks in. She really seems like a gal who wears her heart on her sleeve, and I can't imagine her being able to disguise her feelings for the guy she winds up falling hardest for.
But a male model? Really? (Run Des ... RUN.)
Do you have any predictions on what type of guy Des will pick?
