Good grief. I never thought I'd say this -- but poor Desiree Hartsock. Seriously. Could the dudes on her season get any worse? OMG. Sure, there's always a jerk or two thrown into the mix for whoever happens to be The Bachelorette -- but Des has more than her fair share of losers.
And tonight, just when we thought Ben was going to be exposed as the dude who was really there for the wrong reasons, he actually managed to come off looking like on of the classiest guys in the bunch -- despite his little "Let's get drunk!" comment upon driving away in the limo. Am I the only one who found that a bit endearing? (Crickets.)
Whether he was truly there for Des or solely to promote his bar business -- Ben certainly handled himself like more of a gentleman than Michael on the two-on-one-date. What kind of dude acts like a total confrontational a**hat on a date with The Bachelorette and winds up getting the rose anyway? (What was she thinking?)
Geez. They honestly couldn't have cast a more pathetic group of suitors for this gal. First, a couple episodes ago, Brian's girlfriend crashes the party and exposes him as a cheater. And then Bryden shows up on Des' one-on-one date with Chris for the sole purpose of sending himself home -- making himself look like the biggest jerk in the history of the show. What the heck? Couldn't he wait an hour or two to let her enjoy her day? (There are plenty of decent joints to suck back a beer to kill time in Munich. Just sayin'.)
Back to Michael, who is obviously more concerned with the other guys in the house than he is about forming a love connection with Des. (Hello awkward. Maybe he's on the wrong show?)
And what about the whole deal with James supposedly saying he wants to be the next Bachelor? (WTF?) Guess we'll have to wait until next week to see how his story plays out -- but it's not lookin' good.
Um, this is the worst bunch of Bachelorette guys we've ever seen. And unfortunately for Des, it doesn't look like things are going to improve very much as the process continues.
If she's really as smart as she seems, she'll stick with Brooks and Chris and forget about the rest of the guys in the bunch. As of now, they're the only two who seem like they genuinely like her for who she is -- not because she's The Bachelorette.
Do you think all of the remaining guys are in this for Des?
