Desiree Hartsock Sobs on 'Bachelorette' Finale & We Think We Know Why (SPOILERS)

TV Addict 17

Desiree HartsockGrrr! As much as we all love The Bachelorette "Men Tell All" special -- doesn't it kind of suck that we have to wait two more weeks to find out who Desiree Hartsock picks and whether or not she winds up with a ring on her finger? Gah. Why can't they air that one right after hometowns and get it over with?

Last night's episode was such a tease, especially since Des admitted she's in love with Brooks and is hoping he'll propose to her at the end of this whole journey.

And while we all want to see her get her happy ending, the promo for the finale of The Bachelorette in Antigua looks like she's going to wind up going through quite a bit of heartache, considering she's shown sitting next to Chris Harrison sobbing about how she "just wants to go home."


Here's the promo clip. Take a look, and then we'll discuss.


What the heck is going on here? What happens that makes Des break down and cry to the point where she's contemplating throwing in the towel on her quest for love?

Without divulging too much with this little spoiler, Reality Steve does indicate that Desiree gets engaged on The Bachelorette finale.

But if that's the case, why is she so upset?

Here are a few theories I have as to what's about to go down with her remaining three dudes that has her all bent out of shape.

She gets dumped -- If I had to guess, I really think that Drew, Brooks, or Chris will decide to leave the show before the final rose ceremony, making Des question the loyalty of the remaining two guys. Makes sense, right? She has very strong feelings for all three of them, and if one breaks up with her, she might worry that she'll be rejected by the others as well.

She can't handle being the rejector -- Maybe this little chat with Chris happens right before the rose ceremony, and she's freaking out over the thought of having to say goodbye to one of the guys. Letting Zak W. go after the hometown dates was tough enough for her, but it's only going to get harder from here on out.

She's in love with more than one man -- Could be, right? I know she's already proclaimed her love for Brooks, but what if after the overnight dates, she's equally in love with either Drew or Chris too? It would be almost impossible for her to make a decision if that were the case.

She's terrified -- Let's assume that she is still stuck on Brooks or decides she feels strongest about Drew or Chris instead. Maybe she's just so afraid that whoever she chooses won't reciprocate her feelings or offer her a ring in the end, and she just can't bring herself to face the idea of not winding up engaged.

What do you think is going to happen on The Bachelorette finale?

Des is a sweetheart. I am going to guess she does not want to break anyone's heart and she's a little unsure because she has a connection with Chris and Brooks.

Tammy Hubbard

I think she should choose Chris and from the promos, looks like Drew leaves on his own in 2 weeks. This has her questioning if the other two will do the same, esp. Brooks as he doesn't seem ready or as into her and she is into him. She's afraid Brooks won't propose if she chooses him, as well.

I never saw her connection with Zak, even though I was routing for him.

A few weeks ago they showed a little more of the teaser and it appeared that Drew left on his own. I think she should go with Brooks. He was the one who captured her interest enough to choose a one on one with first, she has fallen in love with him, he was slow to get there, but he is...

I hope she picks Drew,he won't hurt her

Terri Ferr'er

Des and Brooks clicked from the very beginning and, even with the little burps here and there and the other guys, that got stronger as time went on. It's already been spoiled from several sites that Des picks Brooks, they get engaged, and they're still together.

My guess is that Des is crying over something her brother might have said to one or more of the 3 guys left. She has a jerk for a brother, and he thinks all other guys are like himself. I hope she finds true love, and is happy... I love Des!

Sheila Engler

I really think she is in love with more then one guy and it is hard to say Good Bye to them.. Cause the only other thing it could be is she loves Brooks but he is not ready to really Commit yet... I think she should pick Drew cause he is really sweet and He really Loves her and is so ready to commit.. I just hope she fines Happiness cause she is really a sweet girl....

Roberta Howard

I think she picks Brooks. However she loves him more than he is in love with her. Drew loves her but WALKS. Because he figures out she is into Brooks. Previous promo showed Drew saying he is leaving because he feels she does not love him as much as some of the other guys... Then that leave Chris and Brooks... And we know she will pick Brooks.. Poor Chris...   I don't think it will last... Brooks will dump her after the final rose...
