You know how Desiree Hartsock has a blog over at People where she talks about each week's episode of The Bachelorette after the fact? Yeah, well, when I read what she wrote after being dumped by Brooks Forester in Antigua, I immediately rolled my eyes because she seemed to give away yet another clue about what's going to happen on the finale next week.
And I say "yet another" because on Monday night, she sent out this semi-cryptic tweet, which basically gave away who wins The Bachelorette -- or so I thought.
WARNING: Spoilers Ahead (my new mantra these days).
Ok, so the tweet teased that she'd be crying "happy tears" on the finale, which led me to believe that Brooks comes back and surprises her with a proposal in Antigua.
But then I read what she wrote in her People blog: "Stay tuned next week to find out what happens with Brooks, my broken heart and the remaining men."
Brooks? Wait a minute -- why do we need to see what happens with Brooks? I thought he quit the show?
My first thought was that Des should keep her mouth shut before she spills the beans any further on the obvious outcome of the finale.
But then I started thinking about how she's probably not stupid enough to ruin the ending like that. What if she's baiting us with the whole Brooks thing and acting like it's not totally over yet -- because she's going to wind up picking Chris in the end?
Sorry, but she's just not that into Drew. She'll dump him before he can even meet up with Neil Lane to look at rings.
OMG. She's been saying that she always falls for the wrong type of dude. What if Brooks cutting her loose was the exact wakeup call she needed to realize she belongs with someone like Chris who knows exactly what he wants -- which just happens to be Des?
And then there's the whole bit about her brother Nate Hartsock saying Brooks doesn't win. Why would he lie about it? For attention?
I'm not totally ruling out Brooks coming back next week, but now I'm starting to wonder if he does return to tell Des he made a mistake -- and then she turns right back around and tells him to take a hike. She doesn't want to be with someone who isn't 100 percent positive he's in love with her.
And then Chris will come out and get down on one knee and propose, and they'll be all sappy and mushy and make out like a couple of teenagers.
Now THAT, my friends, would make for the "most dramatic ending EVER," don't cha think?
I'm going to be on pins and needles until Monday night. How about you?
In the meantime, here's the finale promo clip, in case you want to try and figure out what's about to go down.
Do you think Des will wind up engaged to Chris or Brooks -- or no one at all?
