No one likes Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock because she's ugly and boring -- that's what some insider sources are claiming, anyway. Apparently, the guys are disappointed with Des and think there are way better girls back home. They'll pretend to fall in love with her, of course, because they want their 15 minutes of fame, but not a one is allegedly there for the right reasons.
Poor Des! But it's kinda her fault.
First things first, though -- Desiree is not ugly. She's really pretty! The end.
Buuuuuuut -- she is kind of boring. I'm sorry! I know that's mean. And I know that there's no way that the cameras are able to catch her true personality, which I'm sure is bubbly, smart, witty, and fun-loving. (I'm not so sure, but whatever.)
What does come across on camera, though, is rather BLAH. She's not cracking any jokes, she's not really charismatic, she's not especially energetic, and there's nothing about her that's really, well, describable. She's definitely not mean-spirited, or rude, or offensive, but overall, she's just sort of nondescript.
This just in: "Nondescript" is not who you want carrying your multimillion-dollar franchise, and it shows. Ratings for Des' season have been dismal.
Hopefully she'll perk up as the episodes progress. Maybe she was just shy during the first two? Maybe Mondays to come will be filled with Des bantering with the guys and flirting with a hint of irony.
To that point, remember Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky? Now there's a girl who could ironically flirt. We were on Ali's side and laughed on the inside along with her when Kasey Kahl sang, or when Rated R. tried to flee on his boot -- Ali got it, and we got Ali.
Des? Not so much. Sad face.
Do you find Des's season to be boring?
