OMG. I think I might be scarred for life after seeing former Bachelorette front-runner Brooks Forester's new look, which is nothing short of absolutely terrifying.
Yes, I'm talking that Brooks Forester -- the super-sexy dude who left Desiree Hartsock crying her little eyes out on a pier in Antigua because he "just wasn't feelin' her" or some bullsh*& like that.
I'm not sure what exactly is going on with him -- but to say he's had a total transformation in his appearance is the understatement of the year.
Behold, the new Brooks.
My eyes! My eyes! Holy Toledo. I thought Chris Siegfried's "Movember" beard was bad -- but Brooks takes the Grizzly Adams thing to an entirely different and hideous level. He doesn't even look like the same person -- and that's definitely not a good thing. At least Chris' beard is still kind of short and doesn't resemble a squirrel's tail. (Just sayin'.)
Huh. Who knew Brooks could make such a mess of himself simply by forgoing the razor?

I can't believe I'm actually saying this, but Des really dodged a bullet when he cut her loose. Regardless of whether he's simply stretching out the Movember thing for a bit longer or not -- he basically let himself go completely by growing this beast of a beard. (I'm sorry, but it's just awful.)
The scruff he had going on during The Bachelorette was kind of sexy -- but this eyesore simply has to go. And if it doesn't? I'm afraid Brooks might wind up alone for the rest of his life. (Don't tell me you're into the fuzz-face thing.)
Huh. Maybe kicking Des to the curb had more of an effect on him than we thought. Why else would he totally give up on himself?
Do you think Brooks' beard is attractive? (Why???)
