Des and Chris

It's only been a week since we watched Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried get engaged on The Bachelorette finale, and already there's one burning question on most of our minds.

Are Des and Chris really in love, and will they ever actually make it to the altar? Yeah, yeah, I know we ask the same thing about all Bachelor and Bachelorette couples, but given the wacky circumstances of how Des and Chris (ahem) fell in love and wound up engaged, we're definitely questioning the stability of their relationship a bit more than we have with other couples in the past.

And now none other than Des' former flame, Brooks Forester, has come right out and said what we're all thinking about whether or not Chris and Des will wind up as husband and wife.

According to Yahoo, Brooks addressed Des' engagement and whether or not it took him by surprise.

He said, "Yeah, to say there was no surprise at all, it would be a stretch. I don't know what her process was. I wasn't there to see exactly what it is what she was realizing."

Yep. Brooks has his doubts. And he obviously thinks it's strange that Des professed her love to him and then got engaged to another dude in the span of a couple days. And it doesn't sound like he has a whole lotta faith in Des and Chris actually getting hitched.

But let's be honest -- neither do the rest of us. Oh come on, won't you be absolutely shocked if Desiree ever becomes Mrs. Siegfried? Heck, even Chris Harrison doesn't think they'll get married -- and if anyone would know the depth of their relationship other than the two of them, it's him. (A little sad, but true.) I mean, isn't it kind of his job to know whether or not couples on the show are legit?

Let's face it, people. Chris doesn't think they'll last. And neither does Brooks. And neither does pretty much every other fan in America -- myself included.

Sorry Des, but something tells me that while you'll no doubt get your happy ending someday -- it's not going to be with Chris. How can you suddenly realize you're head-over-heels in love with a dude right after getting dumped by a guy you just professed your love to? Something about her "realization" doesn't make sense -- even to Brooks, which pretty much tells us all we need to know.

As of now, I'm giving Des and Chris a few months or so before that ring goes straight back to Neil Lane's fancy jewelry store and Des is left in tears pining for Brooks once again.

How long do you think Des and Chris will last?
