Bryden The BacheloretteOk, so how embarrassed were you for Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock when Bryden showed up on her one-on-one date with Chris for the sole purpose of dumping her on national television?

Gah. What a d-bag. I mean, if he knew she wasn't the right woman for him, he never should've flown all the way to Munich with her and the other guys. He also should've had the decency to wait until she finished her date with Chris to deliver the news that he was leaving the show.

But I guess rejecting Des once wasn't good enough, because now Bryden has admitted the real reason he left The Bachelorette.

(It's a doozie, people.)

Um, I really don't know how to put this, so I'll just give you his exact words:

"I started to hang out with the guys and have more fun with them than actually with her."

(And apparently that pushed her even further into the dreaded "friend zone.")

Whaaaaa? Are you freakin' kidding me? If he didn't exactly have the best time with Des, couldn't he have just kept that little tidbit to himself? It definitely speaks volumes about his character, and makes it even more obvious that he did Des a huge favor by exiting the show when he did.

Oh, and get this one -- according to Reality Steve, Bryden may have had a girlfriend when he went on the show, who he's since reunited with. (Holy jerk alert.)

Yep, Des is definitely better off without this dude, but let's just hope none of her remaining suitors turn out to have any skeletons in their closet, or resort to throwing subtle jabs her way like Bryden did with the "she's no fun" bit. If things don't start taking a turn for the better, this may wind up being the most depressing season of The Bachelorette we've ever seen.

Do you think Bryden was intentionally trying to hurt Desiree with his comments?
