Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried make me feel like Fox Mulder from the X-Files. I read about their latest goings-on and quietly mutter, "I want to believe". That's right, I'm a Bachelorette conspiracy theorist. There is no detail so mundane that I won't examine it for proof as to whether or not Chris and Des are really in love.
First we had Des's heartbreaking goodbye with Brooks on the show. Then we had her and Chris magically realizing they were soulmates. Hm. Okay. Suspicious. Then it seemed like they really WERE an item. They enjoyed their long-weekend away together, and their book of poetry was released. Now there's news that's got me suspicious once more.
Des posted video to Instagram of her and Chris playing dodgeball. I know, I know, what's so weird about dodgeball? Nothing at all if it were just dodgeball. But these two have been together for roughly eight seconds and already they are filling every waking hour with loads of physical activity. I could make a list: Dodgeball, volleyball, hiking, and adventures in the park.
You guys. You are a brand new couple. There is one serious 'physical activity' that I'm pretty sure you're avoiding altogether. Who is in the mood for love when they've got to work sand out of weird places and apply cream to sore muscles? No one, that's who. If their goal is to avoid physical contact with each other, I suggest they try tennis next, if only for the release of the overtly sexual groaning that comes along with the game.
Do you think Chris and Des are avoiding getting physical?
